Zandar Technologies pulled back the curtain last month on its new Predator series of HDTV multiviewer products
The first model in this line is the HD4, which features four auto-sensing inputs allowing both HDTV and legacy SDI (270Mb/s) signals to be used simultaneously. The Predator HD4 provides multiple output resolutions and supports a wide range of display devices, including plasma and LCD. It has embedded audio monitoring with in-picture bar graphs giving users assurance of audio level and presence. The comprehensive fault detection facilities provide automatic warnings in the event of failure of numerous picture and audio elements, which trigger alarms upon loss of sync, frozen picture and black picture, saving time and negating the need for external monitoring equipment.
The Predator’s open architecture will allow it to display UMD and tally information from external devices such as third party routing systems.
