Trilogy, a Clear-Com company, has announced that the new Mentor CX Changeover unit has begun shipping.
The Mentor CX provides automatic switching of video and audio timing signals when used with main and backup Mentor RG Signal Pulse Generators, enabling stability and reliability for on-air applications.
The Mentor product family is suitable for any digital or mixed format environment where a high quality SPG is required. It can monitor up to 22 different channels of multiple types of digital and analogue signals from both RG units, with any disruption of those signals facilitating a changeover to the secondary Mentor RG.
Fully integrated with Mentor RG is the Vector web management system, which provides full set-up, monitoring and control with SNMP integration as standard. The Mentor CX’s Vector also monitors and displays status of both Mentor RGs, including Sync, NTP and PTP health.
Stephen Sandford, senior product manager at Clear-Com, commented: “Any broadcast production can be stressful, and the last thing engineers need to worry about is timing faults in their system. The Mentor CX Changeover unit perfectly complements the Mentor RG SPG generator to provide stable and accurate timing and synchronisation with full redundancy to ensure peace of mind.”
