Scalable HD/SD SDI Multiviewer Solution with DVB-ASI/IP TS Decode Capability


SkyLark Technology introduces the SL NEO 8000 Hybrid MultiViewer, designed for baseband or hybrid applications with monitoring of both traditional baseband SD-HD SDI video signals and DVB-ASI/IP Transport Streams. Demultiplexers, TS decoders, and a Multiviewer Processor are combined into a single device.

Going beyond the capabilities of conventional multiviewers, the SL NEO 8000 offers unrivalled functionality such as baseband and broadband monitoring, integrated test and measurement, remote control via VNC/WEB/SL NEO Client Software. The embedded Web-Based Interface provide access to the system administrative functions associated with configuring and customizing the system.

Available in 1...3 RU chassis sizes, SL NEO 8000 Hybrid Multiviewer is a scalable solution for monitoring from 8 to 24 SD-HD SDI video and DVB-ASI/IP Transport Streams sources.

HDMI/SXGA/UXGA/UWXGA output signals are generated for the setup of displays. Up to 24 display channels are supported with all service indication, audio signal control, and service time systems.

The software package contains web-editor, which permits settings for each window’s position and size, channel logo/name, background, and a VU or PPM audio level display. The product is compatible with 16:9 and 4:3 formats, and signal loss indications and reactions to black fields or frozen frames are implemented, as is Tally and warning signal generation.
