Apantac Unveils New Modular Multiviewers

Apantac, a provider of multiviewers, video walls, extenders, and signal processing solutions, is launching a new family of multiviewers called the T# (T Sharp) series that feature a modular architecture to protect against future obsolescence.

The multiviewer series comes in three frame sizes (1RU, 2RU, 4RU) and/or 16 pre-configured models. All boards are hot swappable and interchangeable between all frames. T# supports output HD resolutions up to 1920x1200p including 1080p.

Among a number of new features, the T# multiviewer series includes the ability for users to duplicate all input sources up to 64 times and to establish an infrastructure in which any input is available to any output. The pre-configured models can be easily expanded by adding additional input or output boards.

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. There is also a version of the input board with four SFPs for accepting SDI signals over fiber, as well as upcoming SFP plug-ins from third parties for decoding SMPTE 2022-6 and more.

The T# series can also be used for 4K/UHD content by combining four 3G-SDI BNCs as a single 4K/UHD input. For each SDI input, 16 channels of embedded audio are supported, and can be decoded and displayed 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: HDMI, SDI, Fiber, HDMI extenders, and HDBaseT extenders.

Apantac said it would include additional new features, including support for both HDMI and IP inputs, soon.

As with all other Apantac TAHOMA Multiviewers, T# supports third-party routers and production switchers and the TSL protocol, while leveraging 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.

The new T# Multiviewers will be demonstrated at Apantac's IBC 2015 stand (#8.E37).
