CRYSTAL VISION BRINGS SMPTE 2110 APPS TO THE 2018 NAB SHOW (BOOTH N2516)

On Booth N2516 at the 2018 NAB Show Crystal Vision will be showing its flexible IP platform, the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware and the initial six software apps which run on it. These apps are IP gateways between SDI and SMPTE 2022 or 2110, and IP to IP translators for making adjustments to IP flows – including protocol conversion between ST 2022 and ST 2110. Designed for smaller projects and ideal for housing MARBLE-V1, the new Vision 1 1U frame brings further flexibility to the Vision frame system and incorporates the usual Vision benefits including numerous signal outputs. Crystal Vision will also be showing the keyers, video delays and fail-safe routing switches from its well-established Indigo frame system, including the acclaimed Safire 3 real-time chroma keyer which in addition to gaining new features has been significantly reduced in price – opening up its high quality chroma keying to systems that previously had to rely on the chroma keyer in their mixers.
