Analog Way will showcase the Ascender 48 – 4K and the VIO 4K at Prolight + Sound 2016, from 5 – 8 April.
Ascender 48 – 4K is a multi-screen switcher from its LiveCore series of AV video processors. The unit includes 48 scalers, and the Perspective Layers operating mode.
Available as an option for all Ascender 48 – 4K units, Perspective Layers allows animation of live layers with a virtual viewing perspective in real time with X,Y,Z axis rotation control. In Perspective mode, the Ascender 48 – 4K can display three Perspective Layers per output plus a native background.
Using the Monitoring output, the operator can display the Perspective Layers on a preview in real time in order to see and arrange all layers and presets. Creation and management of the Perspective Layers can be controlled directly from the Ascender 48 – 4K’s Web RCS, a user-friendly graphic interface.
In addition, the Ascender 48 – 4K will be shown using the Cut & Fill feature, a function available on all the LiveCore systems. Pairing two layers with the Web RCS – one containing a grey level source (Cut), the other one a live source (Fill) – the unit can display keyed content to achieve non-rectangular, smooth-edged key layers.
VIO 4K is a multi-format converter offering the latest generation of digital connectivity. The product started shipping mid-February, 2016. Natively equipped with seven inputs, VIO 4K enables the conversion of a multitude of signals including: Dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, and HDMI into an array of output signal formats up to 4K 30Hz.
VIO 4K was designed to provide optimum versatility; it 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. Although only one source can be processed simultaneously to the three outputs at any given moment, each video ‘copy’ of the selected source can have different resolution and image-area-of-coverage.
Adapted to non-standard signal management, notably for LED walls, VIO 4K offers features and functionalities such as output rotation, advanced management of the area of interest and layer resizing capabilities.
