[Discontinued] CORIO2 Seamless Switcher/Scaler w/ Audio 8x1
Provides high quality 8x1 seamless switching and scaling between standard video formats and Computer or HDTV signals with versatile audio capabilities.
C2-3360 Universal Input Seamless Switcher provides high quality up, down and cross conversion between standard video formats and Computer or HDTV signals. Each of the 8x Universal Video inputs on HD15 connectors can accommodate Composite Video, YC (S-Video), YUV, YPbPr, RGBHV, RGBS or RGsB formats. The output is selectable as any computer resolution up to 2048x2048 at any vertical refresh rate and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p as well as Composite and YC.
Two Program outputs are provided. One is Universal Analog via an HD15 that can be set to any analog format and resolution form Composite Video through 1080p HD. The second Program out is provided as DVI-D. The Preview output is an analog RGBHV signal that shows the selected input as a full screen image preview; CV and YC inputs are up-converted to RGBHV for viewing.
Advanced Capabilities of the C2-3360 include scaling of the RGB or YPbPr inputs, Genlock, Unrestricted Picture-In-Picture (any input over any other), Chromakey, Lumakey and Mixing. The Key Mode allows computer graphics to be keyed over an external Composite, YC, or HDTV signal or visa versa. The keyed image may be faded in and out. Due to the 4:4:4 sampling format, precise keying at the pixel level can be achieved. The Mix Mode permits glitch-free mixing between the computer image and external video. The PIP Mode is unrestricted and allows any input to be inset in a window over any other input. Edge Blending allows feathering any or all of the edges; multiple images can be aligned vertically, horizontally, or both to create unusual displays. Using multiple units, any number of images can be blended. Gamma correction is employed to compensate for many of the problems faced when blending projectors.
The C2-3360 adds Differential Stereo Audio switching via by an integral 8x1 stereo audio routing switcher. The eight balanced/unbalanced inputs may be set to follow any of the video inputs. The connections are made via terminal blocks on the rear panel. Adjustment of audio volume and balance is possible (MUTE, -15dB to +15dB), plus separate routed outputs for program and preview.
