At NAB 2013 Snell features new and enhanced products for a vast range of Live TV and TV Everywhere applications. These powerful systems offer greater automation, improved reliability, higher quality, and more flexible media handling for today’s SD/HD/1080p environments as well as future Cloud, IP, and 4K UHDTV-based operations.
“At this year’s NAB Show, we’re looking forward to showcasing innovations ranging from the 4K capabilities of the Kahuna 360 switcher and a newly enhanced ICE Channel-in-a-Box, to the all-new KudosPro MC500 (pictured) making the industry’s most advanced motion-compensated standards conversion more affordable than ever,” said Holly Walker, group marketing manager, Snell.
New at the 2013 NAB Show is the KudosPro MC500 motion-compensated frame rate converter. The MC500 is ideal for the many broadcasters, news agencies, and content providers that must consider cost and space issues while also ensuring high-quality delivery of large numbers of channels to domestic and international audiences.
Snell will launch the Luna Series of 1-RU router control panels, including four LED models and two LCD models. The LED panels include a high-density version with 78 button keys, 72 of which can be configured as source or destination keys for increased flexibility. The LCD panels include a rotary encoder control knob for user-friendly ‘paging’. The new Luna Series models are compatible with all current Snell routers, feature an ultra-shallow rack mounting depth of less than two inches (50 mm), and can be powered from an external +12V DC supply or using POE (Power Over Ethernet).
