SL NEO 8000. MultiScreen Processors

Multiscreen processors for monitoring signals in control rooms. Up to 24 channels for displaying SDI/HDMI and ASI/IP streams. Up to 4 SDI/HDMI outputs. Alarm in case of emergencies, visualization of service information. Optional IP streaming and recording of multiscreen outputs or source signals.

Overview of the SL NEO 8000

Main Functions and Operations

Streams Capture

  • Stream Capture: demux, decoding of incoming Signals/Streams from SDI/HDMI, ASI/IP Interfaces.
  • Types/protocols: see list of supported I/O Interfaces and Protocols.
  • Processors display input signals of NTSC/PAL/720p/1080i/1080p/2160p formats with FPS values from 25 to 60 on one output monitor (compatible with 16:9 and 4:3 formats).
  • Up to 24x HD 1080i/p 50/60 Capture Ports.

Media Data & Embedded Ancillary Data Processing

  • Media Data (AV Streams): up/down/cross convertion (FPS, Color Spaces), Super White/Black Levels, Video Levels Ajust, Frame Sync, Output Loudness Normalization (R-128), Audio Levels Ajust/Normalization, DRC, Audio tracks mapping.
  • ANC Data Vizualization: OP-47/42 and CEA-608/708 Closed Captions.

Reliable Operation on a Local Network or in the Cloud

  • SkyLark SL NEO Products is optimized for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver comprehensive cost-efficiently Solutions.

Best Performance & Functionality

  • SL NEO 8000 Performance is provided by two Intel Xeon Gold Server CPU, highly productive DDR4 RAM.
  • The Wide Functionality is Powered by the SL NEO Media Platform Software.

SL NEO 8000 Processor Software Licensing

  • Only the number of Capture Ports, Multiscreen Output Ports, and Formats (SD or SD/HD or SD/HD/UHD) are licensed.
  • Any changing of Capture Port Interface type (SDI/HDMI/IP/ASI) and selecting for Capture Port any IP protocol from the list of supported, will not require additional licenses.
  • Changing type of Output Port Interface (SDI/HDMI/IP/ASI) within the same category (uncompressed or compressed type), selecting any IP protocol from the list of supported for Output Port, will not require additional licenses.
  • Increasing the number of Capture Ports, Output Ports, format changes to a higher resolution will invalidate the current license.
  • To restore license validity, return the number of Ports and formats to their original values, or purchase an upgraded license that includes payment only for additional Ports and Format upgrades.

More Details

  • Processor setup and multi-screen composition editing is performed via the built-in web editor.
  • You can display multiple analog and/or digital clocks and the current date in a separate window.
  • The web editor allows you to set the channel name, position and size of each window, as well as a scale for displaying audio levels: VU, PPM, LUFS.

Displaying text information coming from Program Player (controls playlist execution) and File Recorder modules.

The multi-window composition display:

  • name of the current executable event in a play/rec-list (Media field);
  • time passed from the event start and time left to the event end (Remaining);
  • name of the next event in a play/rec-list.

The alarm service allows users to configure sending commands (actions) to other SL NEO platform services in case of triggering the following events:

  • Still Detect — detecting a freeze frame or a black field,
  • Audio Level — exceeding or lowering the set audio level by the dBFS scale.

Implemented option to send emails in case of triggering alarm events.
