C2-5000 Series Multi-Format Video Processors


C2-5100 MFVP C2-5100 Multi-Video Format Video Processor (formerly called the C2-770) is much more than a Universal Video Scaler. Often referred to as the Swiss Army Knife of video processors, it has been the benchmark for video image conversion products since its introduction, coming nearer to the ideal of "Anything In - Anything Out" than any other conversion product available. Not only is it a high performance Video Scaler, Up-Converter, Down-Converter and Multi-Format Seamless Switcher, but it goes far beyond that. It's also a Worldwide Standards Converter, Chromkeyer, Lumakeyer, Picture-in-Picture Device, HDTV Converter, Frame Synchronizer, Time Base Corrector, Aspect Ratio Converter and a Universal Image Genlock, just to name a few. The 9-Inputs and 4-Outputs will accommodate Composite Video, S-Video, YCbCr, YPbPr, all HDTV formats and any RGBHV resolution up to 2048x2048 - not just some predefined ones, but ANY resolution, even custom ones. Plus, the C2-5100 also has 2-Outputs for Preview (RGBHV and Composite Video) to facilitate live event switching.

Picture-in-Picture Power - The C2-5100 is an unparalleled P-I-P device in its price range. Any video input can be squeezed and placed into a window of any size and positioned anywhere on the screen. The window can be placed over any other video input as the background. The image in the window can then be seamlessly switched to another video input. The image can also be zoomed while it is in the window. Multiple C2-5100 units may be cascaded to provide layer upon layer and window upon window of images from virtually any source, from Composite Video through HDTV and anything in between.

Powerful Features The C2-5100 is ideally suited for use with LCD Projectors, CRT Monitors, Projection TV Systems, Plasma or HDTV Displays to improve picture quality. With its output signal format flexibility, it is assured that the Native Resolution of virtually any Digital Display can be matched. Because of the integral resolution calculator, even new resolutions can be instantly added to the menu. Adjustments are provided for Color Saturation, Hue, Brightness and Contrast and each video input has its own non-volatile memory to retain these settings, even when the power to the unit has been turned off. Integral Test Signals are user defined. A Logo memory is provided, so the unit can easily be used as a Logo Inserter. The C2-5100 employs advanced motion compensation to smooth out fast moving images and its automatic 3:2 Pull-down efficiently de-interlaces video from 24 fps film. The unit can be controlled from the front panel, via RS-232, IR or an optional IP interface.

C2-5200 MFVP C2-5200 Multi-Video Format Video Processor provides all the features and functions of the C2-5100 and adds an SDI input and output. This brings the unit's I/O total to 10 Inputs and 5 Outputs. Additionally, a second SDI input is provided exclusively as a genlock source. The SDI I/O is fully integrated into the architecture of the unit, so that any of the other signal formats may be converted to and from SDI and the SDI signal can be used as either the background or insert in the Picture-in-Picture windowing mode. Of course, it is also possible to seamlessly switch between any of the analog inputs and the SDI input.

A2-2000 MFVP A2-2000 Stereo Audio Switcher is offered to add Audio Follow Video or Audio Breakaway capability to either product. This separate unit is 1 RU high and connects to the Scaler with a 15-Pin interconnect cable. The microprocessor in the A2-2000 communicates with the microprocessor in the main unit, where all control commands originate. The A2-2000 provides both Balanced and Unbalanced connections for its 10 Inputs, plus its Preview and Program Outputs
