TV One has taken product diversification up a notch with the creation of ten new units that make-up the new C2-2000 series, comprised of four Down Converters, four Video Switcher/Scalers and two Universal Switcher/Scalers. These units feature DVI and Analog inputs and outputs, five of the models are equipped with SDI. All units have a LCD on the front for set-up, eliminating the need for an On-Screen Display. Prices range from $1,995 to $3,495 and they are available for immediate shipment.
The C2-2000 series focuses on ease of use while providing features common to more expensive devices. Automatic incoming resolution detection and support of multiple worldwide television standards are standard on all ten units in the C2-2000 family. All units can handle a maximum input PC resolution of 2048 x 2048 and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. Variable Zoom can go up to 10x allowing enlargement of any part of the computer screen while Variable Shrink can go down to 10 percent. Position controls allow movement around any desired area. The Up Converters feature motion compensation and a 3:2 Pulldown to greatly improve NTSC image quality from film sources. The 4:4:4 sampling provides full bandwidth chroma for accurate replication of high resolution colors and precise Chromakeying.
All ten units are controlled by front panel Push Buttons, Infrared, RS-232 or IP connection. A Windows Control Panel is provided and most third party control systems interface directly with the entire C2 range of products. All units offer Seamless Switching of the input signals. The number of inputs may be increased by choosing the appropriate S2 Input Expansion Switcher, which links to the main unit via an Options Interconnect Cable. The routing of these additional inputs is controlled directly from the any of the C2-2000 Series control system. All models are housed in a compact desktop case and a single/dual rackmount kit is available as an option.
The C2-2350 Universal Switcher/Scaler offers maximum flexibility by providing Up, Down and Cross Conversion with inputs and outputs consisting of Composite Video, S-Video, YUV Component, YPbPr (Progressive Scan) Component and RGB. The RGB and YPbPr inputs and outputs are available in analog via an HD-15 Connector as well as in DVI-D via a DVI-I connector. All inputs are scalable and incoming signal parameters can be adjusted. A 4×1 integral stereo audio routing switcher allows audio to follow the video input selection. Advance features include Genlock, Picture-in-Picture, Chromakey, Lumakey, Mixing and Edge Blending. The C2-2355 has all those features plus an SDI output.
The C2-2200 Video Switcher/Scaler provides Up and Cross Conversion.
