Calibre launches scaler, switcher and scan converter in single unit

Calibre UK has launched HQView530, an all-in-one scaler, switcher and scan converter that facilitates integration of projection systems for use in the studio broadcast environment and for staging applications.

It is designed for easy and quick set-up using the jog wheel with LCD front panel menu display.

The HQView 530 will switch, scale, scan-convert and can edge-blend for multiple projector images over large surfaces. The unit also performs warp mapping so that those images can be video projected on to curved screens or unusual shaped surfaces.

It has 3G-SDI input and output capability, as well as backwards compatibility with HD-SDI and SD-SDI formats. The processor will accept a wide range of HD, SD and computer inputs including DVI, HDMI, YPbPr/RGBS, VGA/RGBHV, S-Video, and Composite PAL, NTSC, and SECAM. For in-camera use, a Genlock input is provided for compatible with bi or tri-level sync or black & burst which vertically locks the output to the genlock reference signal.
