Control-Room Solution


IndiSys is a solution for control-room environments with patented Digital Parallel Processing technology. At the heart of the all-digital solution is SynLink, an architecture delivering more than 100 times the image-processing capacity of the classic LAN in most 24/7 control rooms. The modular solution lets you convert to digital any type of video signal or workstation and bring them to the wall without any limitations in terms of real-time display, number, of simultaneous sources available. SynLink eliminates the need for external switches, and a single cable link is required between SynLink and the DisplayWall. IndiSys delivers as much as 64 simultaneous, live videos per cube (broadcast quality); 256 video live simultaneously per cube (high quality); or 4,096 video PC traffic (refresh 7 images per second).

The DVX-5400 multiplexer transmits four channels of uncompressed serial digital video across one laser. The latest addition in the DigiBand line, the DVX-5400 uses Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) to create an efficient transmission system that eliminates the need for one laser per channel of video. It also eliminates the need for assigning an independent bandwidth to each channel, leaving it available for other assignments. The DVX-5400 utilizes TDM to assign recognition keys to each channel, which travels across the optical fiber to the receiver.

Via Technologies

The 1U rackmountable Mood media-streaming servers from i3 micro technology are based on the ultracompact, highly integrated EPIA V8000 Mini-ITX mainboard. Supported by the i3 Center management and provisioning server, the EPIA-based Mood server product line comes in two versions: the Mood Live streaming server for live IP-TV and the Mood Movie streaming server for video-on-demand applications. For live-TV content distribution, a digital signal is received through the satellite or cable connection, descrambled using a digital receiver, and passed to the Mood Live server, which delivers the media stream through an IP-based Ethernet or xDSL network to the set-top box. For video-on-demand, digital media content is stored on the Mood Movie media server and can be retrieved at any time and delivered through Ethernet or xDSL to the set-top box connected to the TV.

Lens Alignment Gauge

Schneider Optics

The Projector Lens Alignment Gauge lets you adjust projector lens holders and lens turrets to achieve the precise perpendicular relationship between the lens and the plane of film in the projector gate. The Projector Lens Alignment Gauge features stainless-steel lens gauge blocks for the 4-inch and 70.6 mm lens sizes as well as stainless-steel “metal film” in two thicknesses (the thinner of which is more flexible to conform to curved gates). The appropriate lens gauge block is mounted in the projector in the position where the lens would normally be clamped, and the appropriate metal film is mounted in the film trap (with the projector stopped). A custom-built dial indicator is then used to measure the four corners of the metal film in the gate to make sure that they are equal distance from the back of the mounted lens gauge.
