TV One Releases 3G-SDI Multiviewer
TV One released the CorioView C2-6204, a four-window, 3G-SDI processor. When used on its own, the C2-6204 accommodates four 3G-SDI inputs, allowing the user to place up to four windows in any position on a single screen. Each window is powered by a Corio2 scaling engine, which provides picture-in-picture flexibility.
TV One said it has released the CorioView C2-6204, a four-window, 3G-SDI processor. When used on its own, the C2-6204 accommodates four 3G-SDI inputs, allowing the user to place up to four windows in any position on a single screen. Each window is powered by a Corio2 scaling engine, which provides picture-in-picture flexibility, the company says. A fifth DVI input can be used as an additional full-sized, un-scaled background image, as well as for cascading multiple CorioView multiviewers together.
The C2-6204 includes both a DVI-I output and a duplicate 3G-SDI capable output.
Windows can include up to four audio bars that show the activity of any audio within the SDI source signal. Colored borders and source labeling are provided for each window, as well as 50 user-defined presets. Non-volatile memory stores and retains all settings, even when the power is turned off, while four still-image stores display one of 10 user-loadable images stored in flash memory in place of an input.
The C2-6204 3G-SDI processor supports resolutions up to 1080p60 and DVI-D resolutions up to 1920x1200 at 60 Hz and 1080p and DVI-A resolutions up to 2048x2048 at almost any refresh rate, according to the company. All four window inputs can be scaled to match any of these formats and resolutions; TV One software can provide custom resolutions. High-performance de-interlacing with motion-adaptive noise reduction are available for interlaced sources.
Additional features include seamless switching, genlock, chromakey, lumakey, and mixing. According to the company, key mode allows any window to be keyed over any other window with variable priority/layer control. The keyed image can also be faded in and out.
The C2-6204 can be controlled via front-panel push buttons, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, or Ethernet. The CorioTools Suite integrates with the C2-6204 and can interface with most third-party control systems. The unit is housed in a 1RU case with rack-mount ears and is powered from a standard 110-volt to 240-volt power supply.
