Axon at Cabsat 2011
The Synapse system continues to grow, with 3Gig processing and now with, the award-winning 3D processor G3D100, a low latency, dual-channel (stereoscopic) module with specific 3D functions; horizontal and vertical flip on either input for 3D mirror rigs, plus left and right ‘eye’ signal squeeze to present combined anamorphic side-by-side images in a single stream. With two full-blown colour correctors on-board, combined with the on-board mixer can be used to create any type op anaglyph 3D video. The unit has recently been enhanced with 2D to 3D conversion. The module has been used for various 3D demo transmissions in Europe, Middle East and the US.
Another important area within the Synapse product line is Dolby © processing. AXON has 15 modules which can either encode, decode or transcode Dolby E, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pulse. AXON recently partnered with Dolby in a workshop in the Middle East on “Surround Sound Audio for Multi-Platform Broadcasting”.
AXON’s multiviewer system SynView, part of the Synapse range, is now also available with DVI and VGA inputs, with output resolution up to 1920x1200. Audio bar graphs, multiple Tally and UMD OSD are included as standard. Synview will accept LTC, VITC and NTP for multiple analogue or digital clock displays. Overall, an efficient, integrated monitor solution. SynView is a modular system; every card has its own CPU so is fast to boot and may be used stand-alone. Also additional cards may easily be added to expand an existing system and being modular, SynView may be easily re-configured using our Cortex control and monitoring applications; this flexibility makes SynView attractive to the Hire and Outside Broadcast market where every job is different.
TRACS2, Axon’s 3rd generation video air check / compliance and recording system will be on display with the new HD input feature.
Cortex, AXON’s monitoring and control software will feature the latest developments with PanelView; a customer-definable User Interface for control and monitoring of Axon and third-party products, with Router Control and SNMP functionality.
