Manufacturer: tvONE
SKU: C3-540

C3-540 CORIOmaster is a powerful, efficient approach to building large video display systems. Multiple video windows can be positioned on LED, display based videowalls or projector edge blends, displaying any of the sources connected to CORIOmaster. Windows can be visually “transitioned” into position, resized or rotated to any proportion allowing designers to achieve striking visual effects. Each system can support up to 4 separate video canvasses. CORIOgrapher v2, the control software for the CORIOmaster series of processors, is a simple, easy to use design interface that enables window and source positioning and transition eff ects. This dynamic feature is easily managed through presets in CORIOgrapher or by simple commands executed by third party control systems. 50 presets can be saved permanently in the system.

New! Secure command interface

Secure Communication mode – The latest CORIOmaster release provides a mode to encrypt all networked based communication through AES128 encryption to provide private communication in mission critical applications where network security and authentication is essential.

REST API / WebSocket - Based on industry standard schema, CORIOmaster supports REST API providing multi-user communication to device. Integrators can now subscribe to a growing range of events to provide real time feedback from CORIOmaster (such as: HDMI handshake, lost source, USB stick removed, etc). These events can be used by a control system to automatically monitor the performance and events of the videowall and respond accordingly.

New! Control

Multiple control points - Using our REST API up to four users can now control a single CORIOmaster chassis simultaneously making programming, control and fault finding a dream. In addition to control via CORIOgrapher,simultaneous control is possible using the CORIOmaster app (IOS and Android) and by a third-party control system using our real-time API interface.

CORIOgrapher login profiles – System administrators can set different levels of control for up to four user profiles for Power User and User access control.

Emergency cut/mute features – Cut individual canvasses to black and mute audio or cut all outputs to black and mute

New! Audio management

Audio can be passed through the system from source to display. Alternatively, audio can be de-embedded, cross
converted and re-embedded on another source for each of your four canvasses. Input and output volume control
together with audio mute gives full control.

New! Streaming Media & 4K Playback Module

Higher bandwidth support – A doubling of the module bandwidth to 100mbs means you can de-encode two network streams up to 4k 30 @ 50mbs in to just 1 slot. Increased bandwidth is also available for media playback up to 80mbs on a single channel for increased quality content and interoperability.

H.265 Support – H.265 streams offer higher quality with file sizes of around half that of a H.264 stream.

Low Latency Mode - Low latency mode delivers less than 300ms (glass to glass) video latency for most demanding
applications in conjunction with the Magenta Encoder-100.

New! CORIOmaster App

The CORIOmaster App is a free application for smartphones and tablets that extends the control of
CORIOmaster video walls onto mobile platforms. Download it here.

4K Input & Output Modules

The addition of 4K support consists of two  modules; HDMI 2.0 4K60 input module and the HDMI 1.4 4K30 scaling output module.

Transition Effects 

CORIOgrapher v2, the control software for the CORIOmaster, CORIOmaster mini and CORIOmaster micro videowall processors now has included simple easy to use window and source transition effects.  This new animation feature is controlled by presets in the system.  Transition effects occur not only by selecting presets in CORIOgrapher but also by third party control systems.

CORIOmaster Transitions

Building of presets in the system now save one or any combination of the following window transition effects as part of a single preset:

  •          Preset Duration – 0 to 60.0 seconds
  •          Fade through Black – Source change occurs in black
  •          Horizontal Shrink and Expand – Image shrinks horizontally with source change in the middle and then expands back to previous window size
  •          Vertical Shrink and Expand – image shrinks vertically with source change in the middle and then expands back to   previous window size
  •          Spin – Both left and right rotation up to 7 times in either direction with source change in the middle of the duration.
  •          Size – Windows can be sized accordingly and saved in the preset
  •          Rotation – Windows can be rotated independent of Source Spin in 359º/+359º.
  •          Movement – place a window in the desired location on the videowall.

When a preset is recalled the transition parameters will automatically occur and be smoothly applied over the duration set in each preset from the current state of the windows. Presets can be created and selected sequentially for precise control of desired effects. Presets can also be selected randomly with the CORIO firmware automatically calculating the difference from preset to preset.

YouTube Video about CORIOmaster Transitions

CORIO3 video processing technology makes the designing of creative and powerful video display systems an entirely visual experience. Users create Layouts or virtual display groups on a PC screen and then select sources to show on those virtual displays. Then it’s a freeform process of creating a Canvas over the display Layout by sizing, shaping, rotating and positioning each source as required.

CORIOgrapher v2 is the powerful software behind the CORIOmaster. Learn more about CORIOgrapher v2 here.

Secure Communication
CORIOmaster can now support secure communications** for protocols to provide an encrypted connection for controlling
CORIOmaster. By default, the CORIOmaster communication is unsecure and needs to be enabled through CORIOgrapher. Whilst
unsecured API control can be accessed via REST API (port 80) or CLI (port 10001). When secure communication is enabled port
10001 is disabled. Events can be used to monitor unsanctioned activity (connections to device for example)
Real Time Clock
♦ User can now set the correct time which will persist over reboot
♦ It may lose time if device is turned off for extended periods of time
♦ An NTP service is now available to keep the clock up to date
TLS/SSL TLS 1.2 protocol
Cipher suite
SECP256R1 curve is used for the ECDHE
Key exchange Elliptic curve key exchange with AES128 encryption and SHA256 for message authentication
HTTPS certificate

CORIOdiscover PC Based Application 

A separate small CORIOdiscover application can be installed on your computer (included with system purchase or available by download) can be used to auto discover your CORIOmaster or CORIOmaster mini on your network and automatically by selecting the device, open a web browser to the specified address for easy connection and control of the router.

The CORIOdiscover app allows the user to log into a unit to update the firmware, change communications settings and create new custom resolutions that can be used as an input or output resolution. Communication and firmware updates can also be made through CORIOdiscover.

 New Custom Resolution Editor for CORIOmaster & CORIOmatrix

The new Custom Resolution Editor allows for custom resolutions to be created and uploaded into the unit to be used as either an input or output resolution. New resolutions can be created through the unit's API commands for each output or created by using the updated CORIOdiscover app on initial system installation and then selected by the user for each output and auto detected as an input resolution.
