Barco launched the SMV-116, a new compact multiviewer with 16 inputs and one output, at NAB2008.
The multiviewer is well-suited for broadcast monitoring in compact settings, such as smaller OB vans, editing suites, master control rooms or digital playout installations.
The SMV-116 serves as a video monitoring platform with 16 auto-sense video inputs, offering input format flexibility for signals coming from servers, cameras, a TV station and graphics up to 3Gb/s 1080p. The multiviewer also provides a full suite of audio monitoring with embedded and external audio display. Up to 256 channels of embedded audio can be shown as industry-standard bar graphs. The unit can monitor up to 32 channels of unmixed audio, analog or AES/EBU.
Additionally, the SMV-116 can monitor and decode teletext, subtitles, AFD, WSS and VITC. The compact SMV-116 can be connected with external monitoring systems, providing the operator the option of part-time unmanned monitoring.
