ISE 2017: Analog Way exhibiting latest distribution products10 January 2017
At ISE next month Analog Way will be showcasing the VIO 4K multi-format converter, along with its new set of VIO 4K optional interfaces, including features able to support 4K60 4:4:4. Also on show will be the Ascender 48 – 4K – PL, a powerful multi-screen switcher based on the LiveCore platform, and RCU, a rackable solution to control large scale systems.
VIO 4K (pictured) offers the latest generation of digital connectivity including three slots for optional I/O interfaces to provide versatility and double or triple the output capability of the VIO 4K. Four new optional expansion modules will be presented during the show. In addition to the audio processing module with professional XLR analogue and AES/EBU audio connections, VIO 4K is now available with a Dante audio interface supporting up to eight bidirectional Dante audio channels.
As for video expansion modules, one is equipped with HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 input/output plugs that can handle formats up to 4K60Hz 4:4:4. The second module can convert HDMI 2.0 or DP 1.2 to either Quad-Link 3G-SDI or 12G-SDI, and vice versa while supporting formats up to 4K60Hz 4:4:4. The third module option adds additional 2K outputs. When fully loaded, VIO 4K features up to nine inputs and three independently scaled outputs.
Analog Way has developed new features for the high-end presentation market on its LiveCore series of 4K premium AV video processors. The new version V04 enhances performance thanks to new capabilities, which will be demonstrated during ISE on the Ascender 48 – 4K – PL. This powerful multi-screen seamless switcher with 48 scalers is equipped with 12 inputs, four outputs, and six true-seamless scaled layers plus a native background layer per output, along with three perspective layers per output through the Perspective Layers feature.
Analog Way is also unveiling the RCU show sequencer, a new solution to control large scale displays needed in major arenas, stadiums, and corporate lobbies. The RCU is able to control dozens of switchers based on Analog Way’s LiveCore platform, providing up to 100 outputs, a large number of sources and PIPs with high-end real time processing and advanced video effects. Adapted to complex configurations, it allows the user to create and switch between many different layouts. RCU has also been designed to control various external devices, including media servers, PTZ cameras, and matrix routers.
