Extron unveils annotator

AUTHOR: Inavate

Extron Electronics has announced “The Annotator”, a new hardware-based annotation processor for video and compute-video sources. The Annotator features a GUI that allows a presenter to draw, point or add text.

An integrated, seven input, multi-format, presentation switcher supports all common analogue and digital A/V signal types. Three standard outputs are provided, including RGB, VGA and Extron MTP, with scaling up to 2048 x 1080 and HDTV 1080p. For ease of integration, a configurable fourth output is provided for use with optional DVI, HD-SDI or scan converter output boards.

The annotator is ideal for use in any A/V presentation application that requires the overlay of graphic and text elements, the company says.
