CABSAT 2011: Axon Demos To Include Synapse, SynView, Cortex, TRACS2
This will mark the 12th year Axon will be exhibiting at CABSAT, held this year at the Dubai World Trade Center, Feb. 8–10. Axon will showcase live presentations and demonstrations from the range of Synapse modular interfaces, SynView multiviewer, Cortex monitoring and control software, and third generation video air check/compliance recording system TRACS2.
The Synapse system now features 3G processing and the G3D100 3D processor, a low latency, dual-channel (stereoscopic) module with specific 3D functions; horizontal and vertical flip on either input for 3D mirror rigs, plus left- and right-eye signal squeeze to present combined anamorphic side-by-side images in a single stream. With two color correctors on-board, the on-board mixer can be used to create any type op anaglyph 3D video. The unit has recently been enhanced with 2D-to-3D conversion. The module has been used for various 3D demo transmissions in Europe, Middle East, and the US.
The Synapse product line also features Dolby processing. AXON has 15 modules that can either encode, decode, or transcode Dolby E, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pulse. AXON recently partnered with Dolby in a workshop in the Middle East on “Surround Sound Audio for Multi-Platform Broadcasting”.
AXON’s multiviewer system SynView, part of the Synapse range, is now also available with DVI and VGA inputs, with output resolution up to 1920×1200. Audio bar graphs, multiple Tally, and UMD OSD are included as standard. Synview will accept LTC, VITC and NTP for multiple analogue or digital clock displays. SynView is a modular system; every card has its own CPU so is fast to boot and may be used stand-alone. Also additional cards may be added to expand an existing system and being modular, SynView may be re-configured using our Cortex control and monitoring applications; this flexibility makes SynView attractive to the Hire and Outside Broadcast market where every job is different.
TRACS2, Axon’s third generation video air check/compliance and recording system will be on display with the new HD input feature.
Cortex, AXON’s monitoring and control software will feature the latest developments with PanelView; a customer-definable User Interface for control and monitoring of Axon and third-party products, with Router Control and SNMP functionality.
