Analog Way will unveil the new VIO 4K multi-format converter at ISE this year along with the NeXtage 08 switcher from the LiveCore series and the new firmware version for the Vertige remote controller.
VIO 4K is natively equipped with seven inputs and enables the conversion of a number of signals into an array of output signals up to 4K 30Hz including Dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI, 6G-SDI Optical, and Universal Analog.
The converter includes three slots for optional I/O modules, two for video processing with capacity to handle formats up to 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 and one for audio processing with XLR connectors. With all options, VIO 4K features nine inputs and three outputs. It also offers output rotation, advanced management of the area of interest and layer resizing capabilities.
NeXtage 08 is the latest Seamless Switcher added to the LiveCore series. It includes eight scalers, eight seamless inputs and two main outputs. In addition, there are 28 input plugs including four HDMI, six DVI-D, two DisplayPort, eight 3G-SDI and eight Universal Analog.
NeXtage 08 also features connectivity through SDI SFP Cage on each output, which is compatible with most SFP modules on the market. The device can handle any source from composite video up to 2560x1600 (DVI Dual-Link available). It also outputs a variety of formats including HD-TV and Computer format up to 2560x1600. NeXtage 08 is available with full 4K resolution I/O as an optional feature.
Lastly, Analog Way will be exhibiting a new firmware verison on the Vertige remote controller, which is a remote console for wide screen and multi-screen configurations.
￼In the current version (V02.02), the Vertige can control most popular upstream matrix routers (Extron, Lightware, Kramer, Blackmagic Design, etc.) and allows routing of the video signals to the LiveCore devices’ inputs according to the screens’ content.
At ISE 2016, the Vertige will showcase our next firmware version V03 (available Q1, 2016). In that version, the Vertige will support the latest LiveCore features: 4K inputs, Layer Cut & Fill, advanced layer management, and monitoring widget layout customisation.
