TV One Releases Corio Input Card
Firmware upgrade also offered
ERLANGER, KY. -- TV One says it has a new four-input HD-SDI card and a firmware
upgrade for its C3-340 CorioMatrix.
TV One’s C3-340, CorioMatrix is a matrix router that uses modular hardware with
16 AV module slots for I/O modules along with scaling output cards and soft
signal switching. Also, in addition to having a Corio2 scaling engine for
individual up/down scaling, aspect ratio and frame rate conversion of each
output, the CorioMatrix offers DVI-U I/O modules, which give users a variety of
I/O connections. DVI-U modules within the matrix allow for the ability to use
any signal from composite video, Y/C and YUV, RGBHV and DVI-D plus HDMI signals,
with an adapter.
The C3-340, CorioMatrix four-input HD-SDI card allows feeding four separate SD
or HD-SDI signals into the CorioMatrix, which can double the number of
available inputs as the DVI-U and 3G SDI input cards have two inputs per
module. In addition to the input card, a new firmware upgrade for the CorioMatrix
is also available.
Firmware upgrade 1.44 has an enhanced feature set that enables routing of embedded
HDMI and SDI signals separate from the video signals. For example, you can use
the HDMI audio from input No. 1 and combine it with the RGB video signal from input
No. 2 and output it as HD-SDI video signal in output No. 1. This enhanced audio
functionality with AFV and Breakaway Mode enhances the performance of the CorioMatrix.
Also, in addition to embedded audio signals, external analog or digital audio
signals can be used through the optional audio board for the CorioMatrix and
either embed/de-embed audio signals or even create a separate 8x8 audio matrix
inside the CorioMatrix system.
