CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES FLEXIBLE PROFANITY DELAY THAT WORKS WITH BOTH IP AND SDI

The M-CLEANIT is Crystal Vision's new profanity delay system which is designed to prevent the broadcast of unwanted or offensive video or audio material. Equally suited to IP and SDI environments, the M-CLEANIT's flexibility allows it to be fully customised for any workflow. With intuitive control from a smart button box and separate reaction controls to event and restore, the M-CLEANIT offers the biggest choice of ways to deal with video and audio profanities to keep broadcast content protected – including clean switching to two different video sources or a web page, blurring the video, showing black or blue or colour bars, muting individual audio channels and switching to another audio source. To give the operator time to react, the M-CLEANIT allows an IP or SDI live content stream to be delayed by up to 600 frames, which is 24 seconds in 1080i50, 20 seconds in 1080i59.94, 12 seconds in 720p50/1080p50 and ten seconds in 1080p59.94. The M-CLEANIT is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware, a card which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections and which is housed in the Vision frame.

CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES FAIL-SAFE ROUTING SWITCH THAT WORKS WITH BOTH IP AND SDI Posted: 12/10/2020
CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES FAIL-SAFE ROUTING SWITCH THAT WORKS WITH BOTH IP AND SDI

The M-SAFESWITCH-2 has been designed to keep broadcasters on air, whether they are working in IP or SDI or a mixture of both. With its two independent 2 x 1 switches, the M-SAFESWITCH-2 is Crystal Vision's first dual channel routing switch and helps broadcasters save money by being 37% cheaper per channel than the company's original fail-safe switch. Supporting the SMPTE ST 2022 and ST 2110 IP protocols as well as SDI, it is ideal for planned maintenance switches to manually re-route a good signal around broken equipment, or for use as a very sophisticated auto changeover switch with the option of selecting from ten different fault conditions to automatically trigger the switch. The M-SAFESWITCH-2 is a clean switch and will ensure there is no disruption to the output picture when a switch takes place, using its framestore synchronisers plus the ability to delay the earliest arriving input by up to ten frames to correct any timing differences between the inputs. The M-SAFESWITCH-2 is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware, a card which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections and which is housed in the Vision frame.

CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES LINEAR KEYER THAT WORKS WITH BOTH IP AND SDI Posted: 08/09/2020
CRYSTAL VISION RELEASES LINEAR KEYER THAT WORKS WITH BOTH IP AND SDI

Crystal Vision has released a linear keyer that works with IP (SMPTE ST 2022 and ST 2110 video), with SDI or with both IP and SDI at the same time. The M-KEY can key one externally-generated graphic over a video stream or a matte and is a traditional linear keyer designed for those who use a character generator or graphics PC to provide their key and fill sources. The M-KEY is ideal for a wide range of channel branding and graphic overlay applications, while the mixed IP/SDI I/O means that it can provide a cost-effective solution for those using SDI caption generators to key into an IP feed, with the SDI to IP conversion included in the cost of the keyer. The M-KEY is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware, a card housed in the Vision frame which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections.

Magewell Unveils 12G-SDI 4K NDI Encoder and New Multi-Protocol 1080p IP Decoders

Magewell has introduced a trio of new models in its Pro Convert family of low-latency video-over-IP encoders and decoders. The Pro Convert 12G SDI Plus encoder converts 4K/60fps, 12G-SDI input signals into full-bandwidth NDI(r) streams, while the Pro Convert for NDI(r) to SDI and Pro Convert H.26x to SDI decoders transform NDI, H.264 or H.265 streams into high-quality SDI outputs for connection to monitors, projectors and legacy equipment.

CRYSTAL VISION MAKES CREATING PICTURE-IN-PICTURE EFFECTS EASIER WITH M-PIP Posted: 07/08/2020
CRYSTAL VISION MAKES CREATING PICTURE-IN-PICTURE EFFECTS EASIER WITH M-PIP Crystal Vision has released the industry's first dedicated picture-in-picture device. Designed for IP or SDI playout applications that need one or two picture-in-picture boxes to be inset on the main programme, the M-PIP allows two input flows to be sized and positioned in advance and then layered over either the third input flow or an internal matte generator. The M-PIP can be used with IP (SMPTE ST 2022 and ST 2110 video), with SDI or with both IP and SDI at the same time, and is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware, a card housed in the Vision frame which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections. Picture-in-picture functionality has previously only been available as part of some production mixers, channel-in-a-box systems and master control mixers. As a dedicated double box generator, the M-PIP therefore provides a cost-effective solution for those who only require picture-in-picture functionality, while it can also be used to add extra capability to a standard playout or studio system.

NiTRo Streamlines 8K Editing Workflows With AJA KUMO Posted: 06/08/2020
NiTRo Streamlines 8K Editing Workflows With AJA KUMO

Tokyo-based leading expert in motion picture and multimedia broadcasting production NTV Technical Resources Inc (NiTRo) is a major technical provider to the Japanese broadcasting industry with a range of media services, including production engineering, post-production and broadcast operations and management. Following the launch of 8K broadcast channels in Japan in December 2018, NiTRo broke ground on a new state-of-the-art facility for 8K/UltraHD2 post-production in response to a surge in client requests for editing and delivery of 8K content. During development of the studio, NiTRo examined robust and flexible solutions that could manage both 8K/UltraHD2 and 4K/UltraHD post-production, without requiring separate tools for each workflow. In pursuit of the most streamlined workflow possible, NiTRo selected AJA KUMO 3232-12G for the device’s versatile signal control capabilities to route 8K or 4K SDI signals throughout the new video editing facility, with the added benefit of 12G-SDI connectivity for simplified cabling and transport of high-bandwidth content.

CRYSTAL VISION REDUCES THE COST OF CREATING VIDEO GRAPHICS WITH M-WEBKEY Posted: 10/07/2020
CRYSTAL VISION REDUCES THE COST OF CREATING VIDEO GRAPHICS WITH M-WEBKEY

Crystal Vision has introduced a unique new way to do broadcast graphics. Rather than using video sources for the key and fill signals like traditional linear keyers, the M-WEBKEY web page keyer can key a web page on to an IP or SDI video stream – using the power of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, AJAX, XML and JSON to add still and animated on-screen text and graphics as well as sophisticated data-driven graphics. The M-WEBKEY is already causing broadcasters to rethink their graphics workflows. Compared to traditional linear keying, this new method of keying is lower cost (no need for an expensive character generator or graphics PC), provides an easier workflow (with less video sources to deal with), simplifies the network (web pages use very little bandwidth compared to uncompressed video), makes efficient use of resources (the broadcaster's website and programmes can share the same graphics) and makes it easier to find suitable operators (with web page design a common skill). The M-WEBKEY is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware, a card housed in the Vision frame which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections.
