NAB 2012: Ensemble introduces Avenue P942518 April 2012
Ensemble Designs has presented a new Layering Engine, part of its Avenue signal integration system, for use in broadcast, live venues and presentation. The Avenue P9425 Layering Engine provides a complete and flexible solution to combine audio and video content for channel branding, small master control, centralcasting, fly-pack, and remote truck applications. The Layering Engine has two independent linear keyers, programme/preset background transitions, and audio mixing, voice over and breakaway.
iPad control and monitoring set the Avenue Layering Engine apart from other small mixers and logo inserters. The iPad interface gives the operator freedom and flexibility in switching an event or show. Also, an iPad or web browser can be used to create keyed presets that can be recalled by automation systems on-air. Layering Engine inputs can be driven by SDI signals from cameras, remote feeds, character generators, graphic and stillstore systems, and video servers. The full range of SDI signals from SD to HD and 3G formats are supported. Base configuration is 8×2 and larger systems can be configured up to 30 I/O ports. Realtime processing and low latency simplify system integration. A brief demo video can be viewed here. N2524
