Analog Way to bolster Vertige with firmware update
Video processing and distribution specialist Analog Way will present a firmware version for its Vertige remote controller alongside its VIO 4K multi-format converter on stand 1-N32 at ISE 2016.
Also on show will be NeXtage 08, the most recent seamless switcher addition to the company’s LiveCore series.
VIO 4K is natively equipped with seven inputs and converts signals including Dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI, 6G-SDI Optical, and universal analogue into a number of output signal formats up to 4K 30Hz.
The product 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.
It is suited to non-standard signal management, notably for LED walls and offers output rotation, advanced management of the area of interest and unlimited layer resizing capabilities.
VIO 4K can be controlled directly from the front panel via a 3.5’ TFT colour screen offering live visualisation of sources as well as audio monitoring. A Web RCS is also available to control VIO 4K through Ethernet and USB plugs.
NeXtage 08 - Dual Output & Mosaic Preview Seamless Switcher
NeXtage 08 is equipped with eight scalers, eight seamless inputs and two main outputs and offers twenty-eight input plugs: 4 x HDMI, 6 x DVI-D, 2 x DisplayPort, 8 x 3G-SDI and 8 x Universal Analogue.
It features connectivity through SDI SFP Cage on each output, which is compatible with most SFP modules on the market.
The device can handle any source from composite video up to 2560x1600 (DVI Dual-Link available). It also outputs formats including HD-TV and Computer format up to 2560x1600. NeXtage 08 is available with full 4K resolution I/O as an optional feature.
Two independent seamless mix layers per output, as well as an independent Native Background layer included for Soft Edge Blending or individual screen modes are included.
The unit can be controlled via the Web RCS, a web-based remote control software, as well as the Vertige remote console. iOS and Android apps, or AMX and Crestron 2 and 3-Series modules are available.
Firmware version of the Vertige Remote Controller
Vertigeis a remote console for wide screen and multi-screen configurations. In the current version (V02.02), the Vertige can control upstream matrix routers - such as Extron, Lightware, Kramer and Blackmagic Design - and allows routing of the video signals to the LiveCore devices’ inputs according to screens’ content. If a matrix router is not available in the default set provided by Analog Way, the technical support team can generate a custom descriptor that can then be directly imported into the Vertige through USB.
At ISE 2016, the next firmware version, VO3, for Vertige will be showcased at the Analog Way stand. VO3 will support recently added LiveCore features including 4K inputs, Layer Cut & Fill, advanced layer management and monitoring widget layout customisation.
ISE will be held at the Amsterdam RAI from February 9 to 12, 2016. InAVate will exhibit on stand 1-Q35.
