TV One s new C2-7110 Dual Channel Multi-format Presentation Switcher features the innovative CORIO EXP Front Panel which gives the user complete functionality with 48 buttons, multi-way navigation control and integrated LCD.

The C2-7110 operates in three different modes: Switcher Mode, Independent Mode and Dual PIP Mode. The Switcher Mode has equally powerful Program and Preview channels that allow any function (Next Image, PIP, Keying, Logo, etc.) to be set up and previewed, totally independent of the Program output. Independent Mode provides all the power of two completely independent scalers in one box, each with a full range of features, including PIP, Keying, Transitions, etc. Each output can deliver different formats and resolutions simultaneously. Dual PIP Mode allows any video input to be placed into either of two windows of any size and positioned anywhere on the screen, even overlapping each other with user defined layer priority control.
Other unique features of the C2-7110 consist of 4:4:4 sampling which provides full bandwidth color allowing precise keying, including Transparent (Soft) Keys. The nine video inputs can accommodate signals (either analog or digital, video or computer) in a variety of formats and resolutions. It handles all known HDTV formats plus any analog RGB resolution up to 2048×2048. New resolutions can be easily added using the software based resolution calculator, new or unusual resolutions can be instantly added to the menu. Signal parameter adjustments can be made for each video input and are stored in individual non-volatile memories. Integral Test Signals are user defined. A fast Logo memory is provided, so the unit can easily be used as a Logo Inserter. Advanced motion compensation (NTSC and PAL) is employed to smooth out fast moving images and its automatic 3:2 Pull-down detection efficiently de-interlaces video from 24 fps film (NTSC). The C2-7110 also has Edge Blending as a standard feature.
The C2-7110 is geared toward live events with its new CORIO EXP Front Panel. However there are several other methods of control available. Remote control via RS-232 or Ethernet (IP) is standard. Macros are provided to facilitate long, complex command sequences. The Windows Control Panel affords complete control of the unit and adds. Optional CC-300 CORIOconsole takes control to the next level by providing the C2-7110 series with the operational feel of a traditional Video Production Switcher. Two rows of 14 buttons, a fader bar, joystick and an integrated LCD touch screen provides access to the C2-7110 s powerful functions with a minimum of keystrokes. Event control directly from the CC-300 is available by the integral interface to Calypso control systems.
