Multiformat Video Switching: Barco PlusPAK
Barco's PlusPAK for its FSN Series switcher includes a new universal output card, multiviewer, digital video effects card, and software for controlling 2.5 mix/effects from the FSN-150 controller.
Barco’s PlusPAK for the company’s FSN Series multiformat switcher is a new hardware and software suite comprising four components: a new universal output card, the system’s new multiviewer, a digital video effects (DVE) card, and new software capable of controlling 2.5 mix/effects from the FSN-150 controller. The output card is a dual-channel Athena scaler card that enables any assigned auxiliary bus to output DVI, analog, or SMPTE SDI signals at any format, regardless of the switcher’s native resolution. The multiviewer displays up to 16 video signals (PIPs) in either single- or dual-monitor modes. And the two-channel 2D DVE card offers full keyframe editing, dynamic PIP sizing and positioning, and programmable borders and shadows, plus freeze, strobe, and color effects. Up to two DVE cards can be installed for a total of four DVE channels on line. Barco. 916-859-2500. barco.com
