Apantac Debuts Modular Multiviewers at NAB 2015

Apantac is launching its new T# - (T Sharp) multiviewers that feature a modular architecture, interchangeable input/output boards, and support for 4K, 3G, HD/SD-SDI signals,

The T# multiviewer is based on a unique modular architecture from Apantac that is available in three frame sizes (1RU, 2RU, 4RU) and 16 pre-configured models. The pre-configured models can be easily expanded by adding additional input or output boards. All boards are hot swappable and interchangeable between all three frame sizes. In addition, all input sources on the T# Multiviewer series can be duplicated up to 64 times (on a single display) and any input is available to any output. [The T# supports output resolutions up to 1920x1200 including 1080P, and is 4K/UHD output ready.]

When fully populated (using the largest frame), the hardware accommodates eight input boards, each with up to eight video inputs supported, for a total of 64 3G/HD/SD-SDI and Composite Video inputs. T# is also built with 4K/UHD in mind. For 4K/US support, simply combine four 3G-SDI BNCs as a single 4K/UHD input. For each SDI input, 16 channels of embedded audio is supported, and can be decoded to display as on-screen audio meters. Two output boards with four outputs each provide a total of eight outputs per chassis. Output board format support includes: Fiber, SDI, HDMI, HDMI extenders, and HDBaseT extenders.

This modular architecture concept ensures a future-proof multiviewer solution for broadcasters and professional AV facilities.

To support an expanded range of input formats, Apantac has both HDMI and IP input boards on their short-term product road-map.

As with all other Apantac TAHOMA Multiviewers, the T# series supports 3rd party routers and production switchers, utilizes a flexible and simple skin technology that allows users to customize their on-screen display of graphics including; borders, labels, fonts, tally LEDs, clock faces, logos, embedded audio, discrete audio meters and audio / video alarms. Video windows on the display may include multiple labels, and support UMD, OMD, IMD and standalone labels.   

Apantac is exhibiting at NAB 2015 in booth N6006.
