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.

CRYSTAL VISIONS SYNCHRONISING UP DOWN CROSS CONVERTER PROVIDES TIMED SIGNALS IN TWO FORMATS Posted: 29/06/2012
CRYSTAL VISIONS SYNCHRONISING UP DOWN CROSS CONVERTER PROVIDES TIMED SIGNALS IN TWO FORMATS

Crystal Vision now allows broadcast engineers to synchronise sources timed to a different reference or correct any processing delays while up or down converting. With flexible conversions between SD, 720p, 1080i and 1080p, the Up-Down-AS 3G synchronising up/down/cross converter provides an output picture quality that broadcasters standardise on and can perform two different conversions simultaneously, giving a continuous clean output in two formats thanks to two downstream synchronisers. It is available in four versions as the Up-Down-AS 3G, Up-Down-AFDS 3G, Up-Down-ATS 3G and Up-Down-ATXS 3G with each version providing different features.

CRYSTAL VISION SHOWS NEW MULTI-FUNCTIONAL INTERFACE PRODUCTS AT NAB2012 (BOOTH N1815)

 Crystal Vision will be showing its latest multi-functional interface products on Booth N1815 at NAB2012 six new modules designed for embedding, synchronising, up and down converting and delaying 3Gb/s, HD and SD signals as well as transmitting them over longer distances.

CRYSTAL VISIONS CLEAN SWITCH USES TWO FRAMESTORE SYNCHRONISERS AND LOSS OF REFERENCE PROTECTION TO KEEP BROADCASTERS ON AIR Posted: 31/01/2012
CRYSTAL VISIONS CLEAN SWITCH USES TWO FRAMESTORE SYNCHRONISERS AND LOSS OF REFERENCE PROTECTION TO KEEP BROADCASTERS ON AIR

Crystal Visions Safe Switch 3G provides clean and intelligent 2 x 2 switching between two 3Gb/s, HD or SD sources containing up to four groups of embedded audio and is the only way to guarantee a clean switch. The full framestore synchroniser on each input allows it to correct for any timing difference between the two inputs resulting in no disruption to the output picture when a switch takes place, while it can even lose the reference and not affect the output. It can be used for planned maintenance switches to manually re-route a good signal around broken equipment, or as an intelligent emergency transmission switch with the option of selecting from 16 different fault conditions to automatically trigger the switch. Available in two versions as Safe Switch 3G and Safe Switch-L 3G it provides a robust, one-board solution that replaces a switch and two synchronisers, simplifying system designs and saving broadcast engineers both money and rack space.
