Four new launches from Crystal Vision

Four new variable video delays are now available from Crystal Vision. Providing up to 10 seconds of 3Gbs delay, 20 seconds in HD and 110 seconds in SD, the ViViD 3G range is designed for matching any system delays, with 12 of these space-saving modules fitting in 2U.

New features appearing on a Crystal Vision video delay for the first time include 3Gbs support, signal timing, video proc-amp and integrated fibre input/output. ViViD 3G and ViViD 3GS provide half a second of delay in 3Gbs, one second in HD and 5.5 seconds in SD. The ViViD 3G range can be used to match any short or long system delays, such as those caused by virtual studio graphics, MPEG encoders and decoders, audio processing, HD radio links and satellite links, while the longer delay lines can also find use as part of a profanity delay system. Having the delay adjustable in increments of pixels, lines, frames and seconds makes it easy to get the exact delay required.

Philip Scofield, Crystal Vision’s managing director explained, “We have supplied video delays to help integrate chroma keyers into virtual studios for many years. As our customers have found more uses for video delays, we have developed our range of products to suit any requirement.”

The ViViD 3GS and ViViD 3GS-20 variants both include a framestore synchroniser timed to an external Black and Burst or tri-level syncs analogue reference. It aims to save rack space by being 100mmx266mm modules that fit in the standard frames alongside any other product from the range, with up to 12 video delays in 2U.
