FOR-A Creates New IP Multi Viewer MV-1640IP
As the need for signal monitoring and quality checking has escalated at all points in the broadcast chain, so the move is away from the big, dedicated multiviewers to smaller products which can create highly tailored mosaics at the point they are required. The MV-1640IP is designed with precisely this requirement in mind.
Suitable for IP or hybrid production workflows, the MV-1640IP is the perfect compact, adaptable multiviewer for production and monitoring installations, with both SDI and IP inputs and outputs for hybrid environments.
- Up to 32 inputs
- Up to 5 outputs
- Customizable layout with up to 25 windows
- Built in signal monitoring detects frozen frames
- External control via SNMP
- Cascade units to create larger displays with many more windows, all controlled from a single user interface
The unit is capable of streaming motion JPEG for monitoring over remote web-enabled devices. While the directly connected screens feature alarms, tallies and audio levels, a Windows application allows a clean streamed output, allowing it to be used for conformance recording or fault trail analysis. A roving engineer could even monitor systems from a tablet or phone.
The MV-1640IP Multi Viewer is the right product at the right time. It incorporates all the functionality required for point multiviewers in a hybrid architecture, allowing monitoring of multiple signals whatever their source, format or resolution.
Compact, affordable, flexible, readily implemented, the MV-1640IP meets the real needs of today’s system architecture in a transitional or hybrid environment.
