TV One unveils C2-2000 series of converters, switchers, scalers
TV One has released its C2-2000 series of broadcast equipment consisting of 10 new units. The C2-2000 series includes four downconverters, four video switcher/scalers and two universal switcher/scalers. These units feature DVI and analog inputs and outputs. Five of the models are equipped with SDI. All units have an LCD on the front for setup, eliminating the need for an on-screen display.
Automatic incoming resolution detection and support of multiple worldwide TV standards are standard on all 10 units in the C2-2000 family. All units can handle a maximum input PC resolution of 2048 x 2048, and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. Variable zoom can go up to 10X, allowing enlargement of any part of the computer screen, while variable shrink can go down to 10 percent. Position controls allow movement around any desired area.
The upconverters feature motion compensation and a 3:2 pulldown to greatly improve NTSC image quality from film sources. The 4:4:4 sampling provides full bandwidth chroma for accurate replication of high-resolution colors and precise chromakeying.
