LYNX Technik AG® Launches Flexible "One Module - Many Solutions" Card at NAB - Booth No. C1628
The P IE 5610 FLEXCARD platform allows users to define their very own toolset from a menu of firmware options
The new P IE 5610 FLEXCARD Multi-format Image Engine is a "one module - many solutions" device for the Series 5000 system that allows users to define their very own toolset (of any combination) from a menu of firmware options. The firmware options include:
- Aspect Ratio Conversion - includes fixed presets and user-adjustable aspect ratios
- Up / Down / Cross Conversion - includes fixed and user-adjustable scaling, color space conversion and aperture correction
- Noise Reduction - includes 'mosquito noise' removal, artefact block removal, 2D/3D recursive low pass filtering, and H/V aperture correction
- Video Delay - includes independent 12-frame programmable video delays for each output channel
This straight forward, cost-effective signal processing card gives users the freedom to build a feature-set of any combination of available firmware options that is specific to their application. So, whether users are simply looking for a noise reducer, or for a noise reducer plus video delay solution with up/down/cross conversion, the new P IE 5660 delivers a single-card solution that once required a handful of modules.
LYNX FLEXCARD modules are designed all around flexibility. Invest in the functionality you need right now, and upgrade quickly by purchasing new features in the future. All P IE modules are shipped fully loaded with all options pre-installed - users simply purchase license codes to activate the options they need. This eliminates the need to invest in new hardware, and absolutely no complex and time-consuming reprogramming is required.
The P IE 5610 FLEXCARD module supports and auto-detects all video formats from SDTV to HDTV up to 1.485GHz/s. 16 channels of embedded audio is automatically delayed to compensate for any internal signal processing delay, and then re-embedded into each of the 2 output channels. Up to 7 user presets can be stored and recalled from flash RAM, and provides full Metadata support including time code, closed caption transcoding, WSS and AFD.
"The new platform is about being flexible and we want our customers to use this flexibility to their advantage," comments Winfried Deckelmann, CEO of LYNX Technik AG.
