TAG V.S. Unveils IP Monitoring and UHD Multiviewer Solutions

TAG Video Systems, a provider of IP monitoring and high-quality UHD multiviewers, has announced a new software-only IP-multiviewer version of its existing MCM-9000 platform, called the MCM-9000U.

Calling it “highly disruptive,” the new TAG V.S. MCM-9000U combines sophisticated technology with simple operation for a multiviewer and monitoring solution that supports multiple formats, including compressed, uncompressed and OTT—all on the same platform. The solution automatically scans networks, detects services, and utilizes simple drag and drop configuration capabilities for a totally customizable visual mosaic that’s viewable from anywhere, including mobile devices.

The implementation of uncompressed SMPTE 2110-21 output—the first development of this kind in the industry—results in superior picture quality at the mosaic output. Outputs from the monitored services also feature rich data overlays that serve as a strong tool for real-time error detection and alerts.

Capable of receiving large quantities of uncompressed sources and displaying them on the same screen, the MCM-9000U can create and display more “tiles”, thus reducing the number of monitors and interface devices required resulting in greater hardware efficiency. The versatile and flexible solution adapts to the changing needs of the user without changing equipment, providing substantial cost savings and allowing the facility to keep ahead of the curve as technology evolves. And because the software and licenses remain the same as hardware is replaced, costs are minimized over the product's lifespan.

The MCM-9000U includes an intuitive web-based tool for layout creation and editing that facilitates the generation of multiple configurations, with numerous tile types and a variety of visual structures. The scalable solution runs on off-the-shelf hardware, making it easy to implement, and minimizes the overall cost of initial ownership. Everything the customer needs, including the OS, a bootable product image and license, is delivered in its entirety on a standard Flash drive.
