Kramer introduces multi-viewer for 3G HD-SDI video signals

Kramer Electronics has introduced the MV-6, a multi-viewer for 3G HD-SDI video signals. The unit is HDTV compatible and has a maximum input data rate of 3Gbps.

iThe device can display up to six inputs in any combination, and output the image in multiple formats supporting either pre-programmed or customisable screen divisions.

MV-6 features Kramer's re-Klocking and equalization technology on each input, which rebuilds the digital signal so that it can travel longer distances.

Furthermore, each input also has a corresponding looping output. On the output side, the MV-6 supports SDI (259M), HD-SDI (292M), and 3G HD-SDI (SMPTE 424M) serial digital signals, and has an HDMI and composite video output as well.

The MV-6 is housed in a standard 19" 2U rack-mountable enclosure with rack "ears" included. The flexible control options featured are via IR remote and Ethernet & RS-232 (supplied with PC control software). The two-row 4.3" color LCD preview screen (16:9) displays the output signal on the front panel. The front panel also features buttons to freeze, resize, and position the picture; in addition to, four pre-programmed and two user-definable screen handling buttons making the unit easy to monitor and control.
