Analog Way completes high-res seamless switcher line-up

Analog Way has announced availability of its Quattro Value and Octo Value switchers with mono-scalers.

Both are high-resolution digital and analogue, computer and video scaler seamless switchers.

The two new products complete Analog Way’s range of high-resolution seamless switchers featuring dual and tri scalers.

Quattro Value (QXE421) and Octo Value (OXE831) are claimed to perform fast and smooth transitions between any video or computer sources. They also allow true seamless switching between one computer input (direct) and any other video or computer input.

Quattro Value is fitted with four universal AV inputs including one DVI and three outputs: one analogue, one DVI for the main and one analogue for the preview. Octo Value features eight Universal inputs including one DVI and four outputs: two analogue, one DVI for the main and one analogue for the preview.

The products both offer a true scaled preview out offering the facility to visualise any source before displaying it on the main output. Preview out allows any Video or Computer source to be checked on a simple LCD screen before being shown to the audience.

Quality picture insertion can be created from any input. The PIP can be smoothly sized and moved anywhere over the background image. The PIP source can be quickly and smoothly switched through a fade to black or customised color. The PIP opening offers a choice between cut and fade. The products feature other effects such as fade and titling, high resolution logo insertion and frames storage.

Quattro Value and Octo Value are up/down video and computer Scalers. Ready to fit the native resolution of current HD display devices, they incorporate a high quality digital decoder, improved 3:2 and 2:2 pull down circuitry, auto-adaptive pixel by pixel 3D motion compensation, time base corrector, frame rate converter and follower.

The products offer an Auto Setup function and a powerful auto clock and phase for computers. Each input image control can be individually set and stored in non-volatile memories.

Each input is fitted with a stereo audio line.

QXE831 and OXE831 are fitted with a Dual RS232 Com port for integral remote control and automatic control of other devices in the installation. Upgrades are available on the website and a TCP/IP connection allows for remote control and/or upgrade.

User-friendly and ultra compact, Quattro Value and Octo Value are designed for high-resolution AV presentation displays, houses of worship, conference, boardrooms and events.
