CORIOmatrix makes ISE debut30 November 2011
TV One’s C3-340 Series CORIOmatrix is making its ISE debut, offering what TV One describes as an industry-first firmware-based video routing, switching and video conversion platform. Sixteen AV universal module slots are available and the CORIOmatrix automatically recognises the modules inserted as an input or output module. There are no dedicated input or output slots when using two-channel DVI-U or 3G-SDI modules. the C3-340 can be configured with up to 64 x 64 input/output 3G-SDI/DVI-U connection combinations. This flexibility, according to TV One, allows end-users’ configurations to be based on their own needs instead of the router forcing a certain setup and limited configuration. Additional DVI-U or 3G-SDI modules can be added later in open slots without having to re-set the router. All AV modules are hot swappable and recognised for immediate auto configuration.
The CORIOmatrix also provides up-, down- and cross conversion between a variety of analogue and digital video formats thru 3G-SDI. The modules selected determine what format will be accommodated and the matrix size. Signal parameters of the incoming video may be adjusted. All settings are stored in nonvolatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off. User defined presets are also available to customise settings for various applications.
All the functions can be controlled via serial connection via RS-232/422/485, USB or IP. Windows software is provided. A front panel LCD option makes direct setup easy, and third party controllers permit a wide choice of control options. The unit is housed in a standard 4RU rackmount case and features an optional redundant hot swappable internal PSU and power inlet.
