Eyeheight introduces dual-channel animating logo inserter
Eyeheight’s new LI-2DM multirate dual logo inserter incorporates two completely independent channels, including separate inputs and outputs, enabling mixed-rate operation. Each of the dual logo inserters has two independent layers, allowing two logos to be superimposed. Logos can also be animated.
The LI-2DM has an internal memory capacity of approximately one HD full frame or five SD full frames for each logo inserter. A typical logo occupying 1/8 frame size can be animated across 64 HD frames or 320 SD frames. Logo upload is via Eyeheight's netLogo PC application. Monitoring and control can be performed within the Eyeheight etherBox chassis using a standard Web browser.
Six LI-2DM dual logo inserters can be incorporated in a 1 U FB-9E chassis, giving a density of 12 logo-inserter channels per rack unit. Power consumption in an FB-9E configuration is less than 50W with six LI-1DMs installed. An optional FP-9 front panel or FP-10 desk-mounting panel can also control the FB-9E.
The LI-2DM is fully compatible with virtually all 1080 and 720p standards.
