Analog Way Expands its Range of Soft Edge Blending Systems
Analog Way, a designer and manufacturer of presentation switchers and image converters, announces the extension of its range dedicated to soft edge blending applications. In addition to the Di-VentiX II, a versatile quad scaler seamless switcher with mixer, matrix, and edge blending modes, Analog Way introduces the release of Smart Edge FX. The STE200 is an advanced high resolution seamless switcher with dual output edge blending. Also new for InfoComm, running June 13-15, in Las Vegas, Nevada, will be an improved Smart Edge, upgraded to include a PIP feature and frame store memory.
These solutions will be exhibited in Analog Way's booth N952 during InfoComm 2012.
"Analog Way has a long history in the development of solutions enabling the creation of wide images, either horizontally or vertically", explains Franck Facon, marketing and communications director. "Combining this with different levels of processing capabilities, we now offer three edge blending systems capable of meeting the needs of a variety of applications through different inputs, layers and effects."
Di-VentiX II is a versatile multi-layer mixer, scaler, and seamless switcher that can be used in three different modes: multi-layer Mixer, eight by two seamless native matrix and stand-alone embedded soft edge blending mode. Di-VentiX II offers eight inputs, including four fitted with 3G/HD/SD-SDI and four fitted with DVI. It outputs digital and analog signals in SDI, DVI, and RGB simultaneously with a selection of many formats from HD-TV to VESA 2K.
In embedded edge blending mode, the Di-VentiX II provides a stand-alone solution for a two projector large blended screen, either horizontally or vertically blended. Thanks to its full frame and logo memories, Di-VentiX II can display up to eight layers: four live sources, one frame, two logos and one mask. Live layers can be customized by the users with various attributes: borders, movements, keying, or transparency. It offers live effects including keying and moving PIP. An optional video output can be used as a true preview monitor for easy control of shows.
Multi-screen edge blending can be achieved by linking multiple Di-VentiX II, updated with the cross blender II option (included). Each Di-VentiX II used in mixer mode drives one video projector to create an extra-large image up to eight projectors either horizontally or vertically.
Smart Edge FX is a new addition to Analog Way's Edge Blending solutions. Smart Edge FX offers up to twelve inputs, including four fitted with 2 3G/HD/SD-SDI and two fitted with HDCP compliant DVI. It outputs digital and analog signals in DVI, RGB, and offers a video output card providing SD or HD-TV formats in various signals from composite video to HD-SDI.
Smart Edge FX can display up to four layers including one logo, one frame, and two live layers customizable by the user. The product allows the display of up to two PIPs on a still background, or one PIP on a live background. Seamless transitions are available as well as a variety of visuals effects which can be combined during transitions (dynamic PIP, flying, zooming and cropping PIP, etc.).
