Apantac LLC, designer and developer of high quality, cost effective multiviewers and signal processing equipment is launching its new Universal Multiviewers, the TAHOMA-DE Series, at IBC 2010, booth no. 13.A16.
The TAHOMA-DE Multiviewers are designed to simultaneously display and monitor a variety of HDMI, DVI, VGA, YPbPr, YC, Composite, and SDI video sources on a single screen. This feature set meets the growing multi-image display processing demands of the command and control, medical, security, and a variety of broadcast and professional AV markets.
The TAHOMA-DE series of Multiviewers are truly universal in nature whereby each input can be configured to auto-detect 4 or 8 HDMI / DVI / VGA / YPbPr / YC / Composite or optional HD / SD-SDI sources. As with Apantac’s full platform of TAHOMA Multiviewers, the TAHOMA-DE family includes built-in CATx extenders allowing the display monitors to be up to 35 meters (115 feet) away from the Multiviewer.
One of the most compact Multiviewers on the market, the TAHOMA-DE supports up to 8 high resolution inputs in a single rack unit.
Apantac’s TAHOMA platform utilizes a skin technology that allows users to customize their on-screen display of graphics including; borders, labels, fonts, tally LEDs, clock faces, logos, audio meters and audio / video alarms. Video windows on the display may include multiple labels where the user can choose the position, size and style of the labels, and place them over or outside each video window.
TAHOMA-DE Multiviewers display up to 16 audio meters per window. As an option, 4 discrete analog or AES audio channels per video input can also be decoded and displayed. Audio can be associated with the video windows or work as standalone audio meters. Analog or AES audio options can be added at any time during or after purchase.
TAHOMA-DE supports DVI/HDMI/VGA outputs at resolutions up to 2048×1080 (50 / 60 Hz), including support for 1080p. It also supports an optional HD / SD-SDI output.
TAHOMA-DE modules can be controlled several ways including; via the front panel buttons, a simple preset panel, the Apantac ASCII protocol, via a Control Module with GPI inputs assigned to presets, and the Apantac Director software – a configuration and control application.
