Margate, Kent UK, December 13, 2012 – TV One is pleased to announce a 4 input HD-SDI card in addition with a firmware upgrade for the C3-340, CORIO®matrix.
TV One’s C3-340, CORIO®matrix is a unique Matrix Router that uses modular hardware with 16 AV module slots for I/O modules along with scaling output cards and soft signal switching. Also, in addition to having a CORIO2 scaling engine for individual up/down scaling , aspect ratio and frame rate conversion of each output, the CORIO®matrix offers unique DVI-U I/O modules, which give users a variety of Input / Output connections. DVI-U modules within the CORIO®matrix allow for the ability to use any signal from Composite Video, Y/C and YUV, RGBHV and DVI-D plus HDMI signals. Just use a simple adaptor and you have the freedom of choice.
The C3-340, CORIO®matrix 4 Input HD-SDI card enables you to feed in 4 separate SD or HD-SDI signals into the CORIO®matrix, which can double the number of available inputs as the DVI-U and 3G SDI inputs cards have 2 inputs per module. In addition to input card release, a new firmware upgrade for the CORIO®matrix is also available. Firmware upgrade 1.44 enhances the features of the CORIO®matrix from a Video Matrix to a complete Audio and Video Routing Scaling Matrix.
Firmware upgrade 1.44 features an enhanced feature set which allows the ability to route embedded HDMI and SDI signals separate from the Video Signals. For example, you can use the HDMI Audio from Input 1 and combine it with the RGB Video Signal from Input 2 and output it as HD SDI Video signal in Output 1. This enhanced audio functionality with AFV and Breakaway Mode greatly enhances the performance of the CORIO®matrix. Also, in addition to embedded audio signals, external analog or digital audio signals can be used through the optional audio board for the CORIO®matrix and either embed/de-embed audio signals or even create a separate 8×8 audio matrix inside the CORIO®matrix system.
