At BVE 2015 visitors will find Crystal Vision’s latest products, including the award-winning LKEY-SQZ, a unique keying solution providing an exceptionally smooth squeeze back functionality, two distribution amplifiers for MADI audio, and a choice of two new control options: the VisionWeb web browser software and the VisionPanel hardware control panel.
LKEY-SQZ is designed for applications such as squeezing the end credits to preview the next programme, or reducing an image of a presenter to allow room for additional graphic material. It can smoothly resize and move the main video and allow graphics or text around it. Timeline control can be used to perform a sequence of operations relative to a start signal. The LKEY-SQZ keyer removes the need to use a full vision mixer to provide a squeeze back, and is also useful for those who have a mixer which does not include this squeeze back functionality.
The MADDA105 and MADDA111 MADI distribution amplifiers are designed for applications where the user needs to transport a large amount of audio as a block. Up to 11 copies of a MADI data stream containing up to 64 audio channels can be handled. The amplifiers also include both LED and GPI output indication of the presence of a MADI input.
VisionWeb Control is a free-of-charge way of operating Crystal Vision’s full product range from a web browser, using an XML control interface. In order to access the control menus, the operator simply types the IP address of the frame into a web browser running on any device that is connected to the same network.
VisionPanel is a 3U Ethernet Control Panel that can operate any Crystal Vision boards which have an XML control file. It is designed for operators who prefer their control from a physical panel rather than a PC, and uses a combination of soft buttons on the large touchscreen.
