TV One offers dual-channel video processors for closed captioning
TV One has released a new firmware upgrade for its C2-7000 series of dual channel video processors that includes a new function that allows for the receipt and transmission of closed captions. The new firmware can be freely downloaded from the TV One Web site.
This new functionality enables a C2-7000 video processor to receive either CEA-608 or CEA-708 (608) closed captions from Composite video (CEA-608 only), or SDI video (CEA-608 or CEA-708(608)) and retransmit with any HD or SD-SDI output.
The C2-7000 series of video and video/audio processors addresses a wide range of applications. All products within this line include video features such as dual CORIO technology processing engines for independent mixing and scaling.
High-performance up-, down- and crossconversion between video, PC, DVI and SD/HD-SDI is available with up to 17 multiformat inputs and two outputs in digital and analog. Analog and DVI RGB resolutions up to 2048 x 2048 and HDTV up to 1080p are accommodated. Genlocking of any video input to any other can be achieved as well as seamless switching with cuts, fades or effects and unrestricted dual picture-in-picture with any input over any other. Edge blending is a standard feature with the ability to “feather” any or all of the edges.
Flexible chroma key and luma key layering with 4:4:4 sampling for full bandwidth color can be achieved while the background lock source can be moved to the foreground. Controlling the unit can be via front panel push buttons, RS-232 and IP interface remote control, and external control is via a Windows control panel or third-party control systems. TV One also offers the CC-300 CORIO console hardware control panel for use with the C2-7000 series.
