Evertz launches 3Gb/s modular multiviewer, Nielsen Universal Reader
Among the many products released by Evertz at NAB were a multiviewer module and the Nielsen Universal Reader. The VIP Advanced DUO is an advanced, compact multi-image display processor. It supports up to 3Gb/s SDI inputs and two display outputs. The VIP Advanced DUO is available in three sizes: eighty inputs, two outputs; 16 inputs, two outputs; and 32 inputs, two outputs. Similar to the MVP, layout creation can be performed using Evertz's Maestro software.
Evertz's Nielsen Universal Reader module provides a solution for monitoring the presence of Nielsen codes from the broadcast path. The 7760ND-HD monitors both the video AMOL1/AMOL2 data as well as the audio NAES data. The presence of codes and the value for the codes are then monitored/reported using various outputs from the device; these include logging and alarming exclusively using VistaLINK PRO and on-screen display via the MVP, VIP, VIP-X, and CP-2200E monitoring products.
