Analog Way to bolster Vertige with firmware update

Analog Way VIO 4K
Analog Way VIO 4K

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
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.
