Crystal Vision will unveil its “future-proof IP gateways” at IBC 2017.
The gateway products combine purpose-built video over IP hardware with flexible software-based processing, and with useful features including status monitoring, clean switching, sophisticated synchronising (including PTP support), delays and IP traffic shaping.
They initially support the SMPTE 2022-6 and SMPTE 2022-7 protocols and can be easily reconfigured via a software upgrade to support SMPTE 2110 essence-based protocols.
The introduction of the company’s Vision 1 1U frame brings further flexibility to the Vision frame system, providing housing for up to four cards and incorporating the usual Vision benefits including numerous signal outputs, dual reference syncs distributed from the frame and the ability to be used with higher bandwidth signals such as IP and 4K.
Meanwhile, Crystal Vision’s Safire 3 real-time chroma keyer gets improved live operation from the VisionPanel control panel while continuing to benefit from Crystal Vision’s acclaimed support and five-year warranty.
Crystal Vision features other solutions at booth 2.C28 that are designed to help broadcasters transition through a range of technologies -– from SD to HD and from HD to IP.
