World’s-First at the Lynx IBC2018 Stand

As a world’s first, Lynx showcased LYNX AIR, a new cloud-based signal processing solution that marks Lynx’ move into hardware-free, cloud-based processing.

Lynx Technik introduced several new products at its IBC2018 stand, including new modules for the yellobrik interface, a new yellobrik rackframe solution and new APPS for the greenMachine titan platform.

With the introduction of yellobrik C_EH_1911 Lynx continues its path in offering its customers future-proof solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s broadcast and media workflows by adding a SMPTE 2110-to-HDMI SDI converter to its yellobrik product family. The C_EH_1911 yellobrik works as a bridge between SMPTE ST 2110 video over IP signals and HDMI, thus closing a gap in IP-based video production environments. The converter enables easy and seamless integration of HDMI displays or any other HDMI capable device into SMPTE ST 2110 environments.

At IBC, Lynx will also showed a new version of its well-known rackframe solutions. The RFR 1218 is the answer to common usage of converter modules in large quantities as infrastructure and mission-critical entities. By using a 19” rack tray the RFR 1218 allows for more converters to be added to one unit, increased rack-depth and offers better accessibility for the whole tray. The RFR 1218 is equipped with RJ45 Ethernet ports acting as USB to Ethernet bridges, and giving access to all mounted yellobrik converters used in the rackframe. This new feature enables the network control of all yellobrik modules by using a central web-based GUI.

As a world’s first, Lynx showcased LYNX AIR, a new solution for cloud-based signal processing. With AIR LYNX takes a step into separating the processing power from the physical hardware. Employing LYNX AIR customers can benefit from various advantages when working in remote productions. All processing is done in the cloud, and no physical hardware is needed or has to be moved from one site to the other. Further benefits are nearly endless scalability when it comes to processing power and reduced costs because customers pay only for what they really use – exact to the minute.

Furthermore, Lynx introduced two new APPS to the greenMachine platform. The MADI APP and the HDR APP both run on the greenMachine titan. The greenMachine titan MADI APP offers 64 inputs and 64 outputs on an optical fiber SFP connector basis. MADI APP furthermore expands greenMachine’s internal audio matrix by 64 inputs and 64 outputs (MADI IN and MADI OUT). The greenMachine titan HDR APP provides conversion of SDR to HDR and HDR to SDR signals and is fully configurable using LYNX greenGUI for setting the relevant parameters.
