This four-window multi-graphic processor offers picture-in-picture display of high-resolution computer-video graphics and HDTV or PAL/NTSC video sources. It accepts up to 19 input sources and features a true 19×4 input matrix switcher that allows any source to be displayed in any or all four available onscreen windows for use in command and control, network operations centers, videoconferencing, or other AV environments requiring high-quality multi-image displays. The processor can incorporate static or full-motion images as backgrounds. Extron's Graphic Still Store feature enables live screen captures or images uploaded from a PC to be stored for use as presentation background images.

Spectra2|VQM (Video Quality Measurement)

This monitoring solution lets users generate realtime video streaming quality metrics such as presence, accuracy, and objective Mean Opinion Scores (MOS) that they can use to diagnose a range of video-related problems at the IP, transport, and content levels. The portable monitoring solution supports multiple-level QoS scores and industry-standard Forward Error Correction analysis. The Windows-based software monitors video streams transported over RTP and MPEG-2-TS (transport stream) protocols and supports measurement of multiple concurrent SD and HD video streams.
