greenMachine titan platform is now shipping worldwide
Lynx Technik’s greenMachine titan platform with 12G processing is now ready to support 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) productions worldwide.
Titan is a four-channel hardware device that provides 12G processing, as well as the ability to convert between single link 4K/UHD video (12G) and quad-link 4K/UHD video (4x3G). For the signal processing functionality required for 4K/UHD productions, greenMachine users now have additional apps to support a 4K/UHD workflow. These include: frame synchronisation, embedding/de-embedding and up/down/cross-conversion.
As the broadcast and A/V industries continue to shift towards technologies such as 4K/UHD, high dynamic range (HDR), virtual reality (VR) and the transition from SDI to IP, Lynx Technik believes that the requirements for signal processing will continue to play a key role in facility infrastructures.
The company will thus continue to provide products based on a software-defined approach to the way signal processing functions can be accomplished. Users can configure and customise greenMachine hardware by downloading apps from the greenStore for functionality. At the heart of greenMachine is the greenGUI software, which has been designed to “revolutionise” the way greenMachine signal processing systems are visualised, configured and controlled.
One of the key advantages of greenMachine, Lynx Technik added, is its scalability. As an app-based processing platform, it offers a future-proof investment for broadcasters to grow with evolving video and audio standards. New standards and compatible devices no longer require a new piece of hardware, but simply an exchange or adding an updated or new app, the company concluded.
