Logitek to Introduce vTrans Protocol Translator

At the NAB Show in Las Vegas next week, Logitek Electronic Systems will show the new vTrans flexible protocol translator that allows third-party devices to communicate with Logitek’s Audio Engine and Artisan control surface.

vTrans — Jupiter for the Thomson Grass Valley Jupiter router control protocol features an interface that allows the Artisan control surface to be integrated into any facility with any video router using the Jupiter protocol. Once an operator selects a source name from a scrolling list on a fader on the Logitek control surface, when “take” is pressed, a routing command is sent to the Jupiter router. The “alias” feature in Logitek’s system lets the fader display the physical input name at the bottom of the fader display while the Jupiter system’s source name shows at the top of the fader display.

vTrans — D/ESAM for Graham-Patten Systems integrates the Artisan control surface with video editing systems using the Graham-Patten D/ESAM IV protocol to control audio mixers. The vTrans — D/ESAM provides direct control over the mixing features of the Artisan from within the video edit controller interface. The Artisan thereby can adapt to many post-production environments while allowing the system to follow an EDL.

Other Logitek software enhancements include support for 5.1 audio metering in the vScreen software suite, a vChange fader display pop-up utility, enhanced trigger table sizes for automatic functions, and updated fader detail in Logitek’s Supervisor software to reflect enhanced Artisan control surface abilities.

Logitek will be at Booth N7124.
