Apantac Shows Universal Multiviewer for Ross openGear Platform

Apantac, a supplier of cost-effective multiviewers, video walls, extenders, and signal processing solutions, will launch its new openGear Multiviewer card with HDMI and DVI inputs at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2016 Show, February 9-12. The new Multiviewer is ideal for any visual monitoring applications that require support for both multimedia and video inputs.

This new openGear multiviewer card with HDMI/DVI inputs (Model: OG-MiniDE-II) complements Apantac’s existing multiviewer card for SDI inputs (Model: OG-MiniQ). Together, these two cards allow you to monitor Multimedia + Video signals / inputs on a single display. This combination creates a truly Hybrid Modular Multiviewer Solution - a first of its kind for the openGear platform.

The new Multiviewer card (Model: OG-MiniDE-II) is designed for the Ross Video openGear Platform, an open and modular platform for broadcast and professional AV solutions. Each card has four HDMI/DVI inputs, a HDMI and a SDI output. Each window can be freely sized and positioned, and OSD (On Screen Display) such as borders, labels, markers, audio meters, analog and digital clocks etc. can be added. The OG-MiniDE-II cards are front accessible and hot swappable, and ten of these cards can fit into the 2 RU openGear frame, which makes it the most compact Hybrid Multiviewer solution available.

Apantac's new HDMI HDBaseT Extender card for openGear transmits uncompressed 4K, 2K, HD, 3D, embedded digital audio, as well as control signals such as RS232 and IR over a single CATx cable.
