Calibre to launch new scaler-switcher1 June 2012
InfoComm 2012 will see Calibre UK launch the LEDView530 scaler-switcher-processor designed specifically for ease of use by production staff operating LED video walls in rental and staging, events and sports grounds.
Featuring a front panel control with jog-wheel and front LCD display for fast setup, the LEDView530 is described as a flexible routing switcher and interface for connecting LED screens to almost any HD and SD video source to intuitively process images.
The LEDView530 features edge drag and drop picture sizing using its jog wheel to fit the content to the LED screen. All input channels and video formats are then automatically scaled to fit this area without the need to revert to zoom and pan controls and without needing to re-calibrate for different input resolutions or signal formats.
The LEDView530 can drive screens as small as 128 x 96 pixels or as large as 1,920 x 1,200.
It also has a multiple-unit mode with auto-zoom functionality. Several LEDView530s can be connected together, each powering its own LED screen so as to create larger video walls; up to four screens can be combined to create a maximum resolution of 7,680 x 4,800.
The LEDView530 has low latency and genlock capability required for rental and staging hire fleets and for in-camera use on TV sets and at large sports venues.
“We’re delighted to launch this LED processor into the market and expect it to have a tremendous reception at InfoComm 2012,” said Tim Brooksbank, Chairman at Calibre UK. “We are pleased to be supported by one of the most important LED screen market-leaders Lighthouse who are providing the LED screens on our booth including their new Skyroll product which will be driven by LEDView530 at Infocomm this year.”
