Software update available for Analog Way LivePremier range

Analog Way released a software update for its LivePremier range of 4K/8K multi-screen presentation systems and videowall processors.

LivePremier software version 2 includes new features for all Aquilon systems, including real-time SDR/HDR conversion, boosted input and output capabilities, improved multiviewer and auxiliary functionalities, and a redesigned Web RCS user interface.

All LivePremier systems are now compatible with the BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut (WCG) as well as the HDR10 and HLG standards. They accept simultaneously sources of different types (SDR, HLG or HDR10) and convert them without any added latency to the desired standard. This conversion allows for all the sources to look correct and to mix HDR and SDR content in the same screen without requiring any additional outboard converters and adding any latency.

The new input and output group management implemented in the version 2 of LivePremier systems is designed to reduce processing resources. The number of layers available can be doubled or, in some cases, tripled for large displays combining several outputs in full HD (LED walls or multi-projector panoramic displays). Supporting 4K input and output signals over one, two or four cables allows the internal processing to use a unique 4K pipeline instead of four HD pipelines. For example, a single 4K source can be used as the background for a group of four HD outputs.

The LivePremier systems are now compatible with the DPH104, Analog Way's 4K video processor, allowing a DisplayPort 4K60 output signal to be converted to four independent full HD outputs. In the case of a large display application requiring multiple HD outputs, combining the DPH104 with an Aquilon will save processing layer resources and also increase the number of synchronized full HD outputs directly controlled by a single chassis (up to 48 full HD outputs in the same screen for a fully loaded Aquilon C+).

Version 2 of the Web RCS now offers simplified configuration, password protection, resizable workspaces and custom views memories.

Four independently configurable timers, countdown and clocks are now available in the system and can be used as sources for the screens and the auxiliary outputs. This could be used to inform the audience or speaker of the time remaining without having to use an external computer. 

Users now can create resizable layers on the auxiliary outputs without using processing resources (adjacent outputs can be used to increase the layer count up to eight HD layers). This can be used to combine several types of information on one display (screen, sources, timers) in order, for example, to drive a downstage monitor (DSM) or to dedicate an output for recording or streaming the event.
