Apantac To Show openGear Platform Solutions at NAB

Apantac will be exhibiting its entire range of existing and new solutions for the openGear platform at NAB.

The openGear platform is an architecture for Apantac’s products, which address a number of broadcast and professional audio video markets and applications. The openGear concept by Ross Video allows equipment users to install modular gear from several manufacturers in a single card tray, saving both rack space and money.

The Apantac solutions enhance the wide range of options being offered on the openGear platform and include: SDI and HDMI multiviewers, converters, scalers, distribution amplifiers, HDBaseT extenders, as well as the new KVM switch, which can also be adapted into a multiviewer with KVM.

Apantac has been first to market with a number of new solutions for the openGear platform including its Hybrid Multiviewer System, the OG-MiniDE-II. This multiviewer allows users to monitor HDMI and SDI signals on a single display.

The new KVM Switch, OG-KM, ensures that a user can control and switch between four or eight computers with a single keyboard and mouse. Since the openGear platform is modular, users can add multiviewer cards from Apantac and create a multiviewer with KVM functionality. All Apantac openGear cards use the Dashboard control and monitoring solution.
