Quartz will highlight its Xenon routing switcher, which can handle both SD and HD signals in the same frame, at the upcoming IBC04 convention in Amsterdam next month.
The latest addition to the SPT module range, an advanced quad split generator, will be unveiled at IBC2004.
The router, new to European audiences was first announced at NAB but is now shipping.
IBC2004 will also be the first time Quartz has demonstrated high-definition routing and master control in Europe.
The Xenon features a multiformat router design that accepts plug-in signal processing technology (SPT) modules to provide traditionally external hardware functions internally in the router. The latest addition to the SPT module range, an advanced quad split generator, will be unveiled at the show.
The latest new features added to the master control range will be on display, including advanced new audio capabilities, format control and a quad split, in the QMC-HD. QMC-HD supports 16 channels of audio processing and internal Dolby E decoding and encoding.
The existing range of Quartz products will also be exhibited in stand 9.441, including the company’s Q256 range of large format routers and the SC1000 advanced system controller.
The FOX network has purchased a Xenon router for its digital center in Los Angeles, where it will begin 720p HD broadcasts this fall. For more information visit www.quartz.com.
