Thomson introduces enhancements to Kayak, Kalypso HD production switchers

Thomson rolled out several new features and functions for its Grass Valley Kalypso HD and Kayak HD video production switchers during NAB2008.

The new Kayak HD enhancements allow technical directors to handle more sources of different formats in a live production switcher. They also can record and playback embedded audio with video from the switcher’s built-in RAM recorder.

A new SetDef option facilitates seamless up/down/crossconversion output formats on up to two outputs per M/E, which allows a variety of multicast opportunities in multiple formats. A new eDPM option with four channels of internal digital effects in the 8RU frame expansion slot provides an external DVE compositing multiple channels to re-enter on one or more M/E keyers. Up to 20 internal DVEs can now be added to the Kayak HD production switcher.

Kalypso HD and Kalypso DUO have added output recursive effects to their Spektra effects portfolio, including montage, motion blur, strobe and trails with wind.

“Will there be a shift from coax to fibre? Or a mixture between the two which will require hybrid solutions to be implemented?”
