C3-340 Series CORIO®matrix


C3-340 C3-340 CORIOmatrix is based on TV One's exclusive CORIO®2 technology and provides high quality modular video matrix switching using CORIOsoftswitch, which provides an industry first firmware based video routing, switching and video conversion platform. 16 AV module slots are available. Additional DVI-U or 3G-SDI modules can be added later.

By choosing scaled output modules, the CORIOmatrix also provides Up, Down and Cross conversion between a variety of analog and digital video formats thru 3G-SDI. The modules selected determine what format will be accommodated and the matrix size. Signal parameters of the incoming video may be adjusted. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off.

All the functions can be controlled via serial connection via RS-232 or IP. Windows software is provided for both video and audio routing and setup of the router and can be used as the main control interface if desired. Third party controllers using the built-in command line interface easily permits a wide choice of control options. The unit is housed in a standard 4RU rackmount case and features an optional redundant hot swappable internal PSU and power inlet.

Advanced Features
The CORIOmatrix includes advanced Digital Flicker Elimination circuitry and high 4:4:4 full bandwidth sampling rate ensures crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling ensures faithfully reproduced, high resolution colors. Pixel Level Motion Adaptive Diagonal Interpolation and Noise Reduction ensures high quality de-interlacing of PAL, NTSC and 1080i signals. 3:2 Pull-down ensures proper 24 fps film extraction from NTSC and 1080i sources.

Integral audio switching is provided to route audio from the DVI (HDMI-compatible) input or SDI input to the DVI and SDI outputs. An optional Audio Module can provide AES and analog or digital I/O breakout capabilities as well as audio delay and can link to our A2-7300 range of audio break-out units. Audio routing control is implemented in the Windows software and also available using the command line interface.

The DVI-U universal interface utilizes a single DVI-I connector to provide the following signal formats: HDMI, DVI-I, plus analog YUV, YPbPr, RGBHV, RBBS, RGsB, Y/C and Composite Video. A variety of adapters are available to convert from DVI-I to other connectors.

DVI-U Modules
The system features the following types of modules for the inputs and outputs. All modules only use 1 AV Slot.

  • DVI-U Universal Input Module - 2 Inputs
  • DVI-U Universal Scaling Output Module - 2 Outputs

The DVI-U output module with scaling allows any input to be converted to any of the DVI-U formats on the output. The high resolution DVI-U outputs are selectable as virtually any PC or HDTV resolution. NTSC, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, SECAM standards are supported.

SDI Modules

  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI Input Module - 2 Inputs
  • HD/SD-SDI Input Module - 4 Inputs
  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI Output Scaling Module - 2 Outputs
  • HD/SD-SDI Output Scaling Module - 4 Outputs*
  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI Output (non-scaling) Module - 2 Out*
  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI In/Out (non-scaling) Module-1 In 1 Out*
  • HD/SD-SDI Output Non-Scaling Module - 4 Outputs*

Monitoring Module
A single monitoring card allows the inputs and outputs to be viewed on 1 or 2 outputs for signal verification. Embedded audio signals can be monitored along with source and destination identification. A separate DVI-U and 3G/HD/SD-SDI version of this module is available.

Audio Interfaces
The optional CM-AUD-8IN-8OUT Audio Interface Module allows connection to any of the following optional external breakout units via HD-44 Connector.

  • A2-7312 Converts AES-3id I/O to 16x BNC Connectors 8x AES-id In and 8x AES-3id Out
  • A2-7302 Converts AES-3id I/O to 16x XLR Connectors 8 AES Stereo In and 8x Stereo Out
  • A2-7342 Converts AES-3id I/O to 16x XLR Connectors 4x Analog Stereo In & 4x Analog Out
  • A2-7322 Converts AES-3id I/O to Analog Stereo on Terminal Blocks, 8x Analog Stereo In and 8x Analog Stereo Out, Balanced or Unbalanced

Future Modules
Additional types and formats of Video, Audio and Data Modules will be added in the future.
