With Eyeheight’s new Playout Application Suite software, users can configure and manage its master control switcher, bugEyes logo generator, and SQ-2E image-squeeze processor from a standard PC running Microsoft Windows. Users can also perform a complete system diagnosis on new and existing installations, with automatic repair of any wrongly set parameters. Logging facilities are also incorporated to assist integration with third- party automation systems.
The Playout Application Suite connects via a single RS-232 cable and incorporates an easy-to-use 1024 x 768 pixel GUI. It will be issued on CD with all new Eyeheight playout master control switchers and is compatible with existing models.
The company’s playout master control switcher includes a 1RU base processor and six core modules that address mix/wipe, keyer, audio/voice-over, internal cross-point, logo-store and squeezback applications. These can be configured as an automated A/B mixer or scaled up to a complete multichannel master control system with manual over-ride.
The bugEyes logo generator reduces the complexity and cost of television channel branding. Up to six bugEyes modules can be accommodated in a 1U chassis, enabling a full-scale multichannel system to be created quickly and easily.
The SQ-2E is a dual-input squeezback processor with integrated keying. Designed for picture-in-picture and image-squeeze applications, it can perform real-time horizontal and vertical resizing effects, individually or simultaneously.
