Crystal Vision will be exhibiting at the Media Production & Technology Show in London for the first time when it heads to Olympia for the UK broadcast industry reunion on 11th and 12th May 2022. Booth L400 will be showing the company’s latest best-of-breed video processing software apps for the MARBLE media processor hardware, all of which can work with IP, with SDI or with both IP and SDI at the same time. The functionality offered by these apps – which support ST 2022, ST 2110 video and 31 different SDI standards including 1080p – includes chroma keying, linear keying, video delay, profanity delay, color correction, legalizing, picture-in-picture and fail-safe switching. This support for multiple signal formats gives the easiest possible SDI to IP upgrade, while also making the apps perfect for mixed SDI and IP installations as well as fully IP or fully SDI environments. Crystal Vision will also be discussing how the software-based MARBLE platform makes it easy to create custom products to solve problems using SDI or IP video.
Crystal Vision will also be showing the rest of its IP/SDI video processing apps at MPTS 2022 including the M-PIP picture-in-picture device, M-VIVID video delays, M-CLEANIT profanity delay, M-COCO-2 color corrector and M-SAFESWITCH-2 fail-safe routing switch. Visitors who care about audio will be interested in the new per channel audio monitoring feature recently added to all the MARBLE software apps which makes it easy for a broadcaster to detect problems with their audio channels. This new feature makes it possible to monitor for audio group present, channels within the audio group present and channels within the audio group present but silent on embedded SDI and ST 2022 inputs.
Crystal Vision is the company that people come to when they have specialised processing needs and the company has a history of creating products for its UK customers, such as the Q-Down down converters. Booth L400 will therefore also provide the opportunity for Crystal Vision to discuss with visitors how the MARBLE platform can be used to create custom products to solve their specific problems using SDI or IP video. An advantage of MARBLE being a software-based platform is that the functionality from different apps can easily be combined to produce new apps.
Based at Whittlesford near Cambridge in the UK and with an office in the USA, Crystal Vision provides a full range of interface and keyers and helps people transition through a range of technologies – from SD to HD, from HD to IP and from IP to IP.
