C2-2200 Series Video Switcher/Scalers


C2-2200 C2-2200 Video Switcher/Scaler is based on TV One's exclusive CORIO®2 technology and provides high scaling to Analog or DVI Computer or HDTV signals. NTSC and PAL video standards are supported. Video Inputs are 2x Composite, 2x S-Video and 1x YUV Component or YPbPr. A computer bypass is also provided. RGB/YPbPr Scaling permits the computer input signals to be scaled with the same flexibility as the video inputs. The output is selectable as any computer resolution up to 2048x2048 at any vertical refresh rate and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. A wide variety of computer signal formats are available to support PC, Mac and Workstation formats. C2-2205 provides an SDI Input as well all the other features of the C2-2200.

All the functions can be controlled via the front panel Push Buttons, an Infrared Control Remote Unit or via an RS-232 or IP connection. A Windows Control Panel is provided and most third party control systems interface directly with the entire C2 range of products. A front panel LCD makes setup easy.

Variable Zoom to 10X allows you to enlarge any part of the video image to fill the entire computer screen and position controls allow you to move around to any area desired. Variable Shrink to as little as 10% allows fitting the image onto most displays. The advanced Digital Flicker Elimination circuitry and high sampling rate insures crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling insures faithfully reproduced, high res colors.

Stereo Audio switching is provided by an integral 4x1 audio routing switcher. The four impedance-independent unbalanced inputs follow the video input selection. A rear panel terminal block provides access.

C2-2250 Video Scaler PLUS has all the functions and features of the C2-2200 and adds a wide variety of additional capabilities, such as Picture-In-Picture, Chromakey, Lumakey and Mixing. The Key Mode allows computer graphics to be keyed over an external Composite or S-Video signal. The keyed image may be faded in and out. Due to the 4:4:4 sampling format, precise keying at the pixel level can be achieved. The Mix Mode permits glitch-free mixing between the computer image and external video. The PIP Mode allows the video inputs to be inset in a window over a computer or HD input. The C2-2255 provides an SDI input as well.

Our exclusive AutoSet® feature takes the hassle out of setup by automatically sizing and positioning the computer image to fit exactly on the video screen. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off. Optional rackmount kits are available for all C2-2000 models.

Edge Blending is a standard feature of the C2-2250 and C2-2255. Because of the ability to ‘feather’ any or a of the edges, multiple images can be aligned vertically, horizontally, or both to create unusual displays. Using multiple units, there is no limit to the number of blended images. Edge Blending is not limited to high resolution RGB computer images, but can be applied to any input. Gamma correction is employed to compensate for many of the problems faced when blending projectors. Special preparation of the video in advance is not necessary, since all processing is done within the unit.

Input Expansion to add additional DVI, RGB, YPbPr, YUV, Composite or S-Video inputs is easy by using any of the optional S2 Series Input Expansion Switchers. The S2 unit links to any C2-2000 series unit via an Options Interconnect Cable and becomes an integral part of scaler from a control and operational standpoint. The routing of these additional inputs is controlled directly from the control system of the C2. Multiple different S2 models may be simultaneously connected.
