Crystal Vision to show 3Gb emergency bypass
At IBC2009, Crystal Vision will show its new generation of embedders, synchronizers, downconverters and switches. For master control applications, Crystal Vision’s SW221 3G provides simple, affordable 2 x 2 switching between two 3Gb/s, HD or SDI signals. It is ideal for use either as an emergency transmission switch to avoid faulty equipment or to manually bypass products requiring maintenance on a 24-hour station.
The new features for the MultiLogo logo keyer and the Clip N Key clip and sting store include versions with an 8GB video store plus the addition of audio functionality and the ability to lock the output to an analog reference. Crystal Vision now offers affordable sports action replay of up to 60 seconds of HD video or 310 seconds of SD with the Playback 8G. Finally, for engineers who need to match any very long delays in their system, ViViD HD-40 provides up to 43 seconds of delay in HD.
