​Crystal Vision Adds New Audio Features

The M-SAFESWITCH-2 fail-safe routing switch has new feature to help keep broadcasters on air.

The new per channel audio monitoring and switching feature now makes the M-SAFESWITCH-2 Crystal Vision’s most comprehensive switching solution, it says. Ideal for planned maintenance switches or as a very sophisticated auto changeover switch and including two independent 2 x 1 switches, the product “will guarantee” a clean switch for sources that are IP (ST 2022 or ST 2110 video), SDI or a mixture of both and can select from ten different fault conditions to automatically trigger a switch.

Because the M-SAFESWITCH-2 is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware – a card which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections – this customer-requested new feature could be added quickly and easily.

Explained Crystal Vision's MD, Philip Scofield: “This latest update gives broadcasters one more reason to use the M-SAFESWITCH-2 in the critical areas of their broadcast chain, whether IP, SDI or a mixture of both.”
