Gilze, the Netherlands - March 2008 - AXON‘s modular infrastructure and communications system Synapse has been enhanced further with the release of the HLI20: HD/SD logo inserter.

The HLI20 is an HD/SD logo inserter, with a preset based logo recall function through a flexible

user interface and a local storage. Multiple logos including animated ones can be selected through the Synapse menu, a dedicated Ethernet port or by GPI.

Used as bug inserter there is the option to alter the main channel bug on the fly, preset based and simultaneously add a “theme bug” that is triggered as on shot with predefined fade in and fade out times. It features 2 individual logo inserters. Inserter 1 has 16 presets for full screen 1920x1080 logos or 384x216 400 frames of animation (16 seconds). Inserter 2 has 32 presets for 384x216 400 frames of animation (larger logos can use 2 preset storage places).

As with all Synapse modules it has full control and status monitoring through the front panel of the Synapse frames and the Ethernet port (ACP). Furthermore it has full control and logo uploading through dedicated Ethernet port on the BPH04 I/O-panel. The HLI20 can also be connected to Synapse fiber I/O-panels.

AXON‘s CTO Peter Schut is pleased with the release of the HLI20. “We are constantly improving and expanding our Synapse product range. A logo inserter is a logical expansion next to f.e. the Dolby and multi-view capabilities within Synapse”.

AXON will show its logo inserter at NAB (booth SU11620) where AXON shares a booth with its global partner NVision.
