TV One is releasing the C2-260 PCI/ISA card video scaler that uses TV One‘s CORIO2A® technology and will give integrators an edge in the customization sector of the Pro AV market.
ERLANGER, KY, April 4, 2007–TV One‘s new C2-260 PCI/ISA card which made its debut at NSCA provides high quality Up Conversion from standard video formats to Computer or HDTV and Cross Conversion between Computer and HDTV resolutions in a compact package. It comes with all the great features that are common to TV One products such as Genlock, Chromakey, Lumakey, PIP and Mixing. It‘s ready for PC integration and plugs into a vacant slot inside the PC where it receives all its‘ power from a standard hard drive connector within.
It handles virtually any computer resolution up to 2048×2048 at any vertical refresh rate and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. The C2-260 has two Composite inputs and two S-Video inputs. A PC loop-thru is also provided. TV One‘s exclusive AutoSetA® feature takes the hassle out of setup by automatically sizing and positioning the computer image to fit exactly on the video screen. All settings can be stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off. An On-Screen Display is available to assist in setup.
Variable Zoom can go up to 10x allowing any part of the computer screen to be enlarged while Variable Shrink can go down to 10 percent. Position controls allow movement around any desired area. The advanced Digital Flicker Elimination circuitry and high sampling rate insures crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling insures faithfully reproduced, high resolution colors.
The C2-260 also has additional capabilities, such as Genlock, Chromakey and Lumakey. The Key Mode allows computer graphics to be keyed over an external Composite or S-Video signal. The keyed image may be faded in and out. Due to the 4:4:4 sampling format, precise keying at the pixel level can be achieved. The Mix Mode permits glitch-free mixing between the computer image and external video. The PIP Mode allows the computer input to be inset in a window over either of the video inputs. The Genlock feature insures precise synchronization of the incoming signals by providing a wide Subcarrier lock range with Subcarrier phase adjustment.
All the functions can be controlled via an optional Infrared Control Remote Unit or via the RS-232 connection. A Windows Control Panel is provided and most third party control systems interface directly with the entire C2 range of products. The unit is provided with a single break-out cable incorporating all of the required PC and video inputs and outputs, along with RS232.
The C2-260 has a suggested retail price of $995 and is available now.
