May 2014 – Analog Way is pleased to introduce full 4K resolution on the LiveCore™ series of Premium AV Switchers. With the new 4K technology, it offers the latest generation of HDTV standards (UHD & DCI 4K).
An Ascender 48-4K will be unveiled in Analog Way’s booth #C7125 during InfoComm 2014, on June 18-20 in Las Vegas, USA.
As technology continues to evolve, Analog Way brings a significant improvement to the LiveCore™ series of AV processors with the addition of new connectors: HDMI 4K and DVI 4K. Three HDMI 4K inputs and 2 x DVI 4K outputs will be available on the SmartMatriX Ultra, Ascender 32 and Ascender 48. The NeXtage 16 will come with 2 x HDMI 4K inputs and 1 x DVI 4K output.
Several frame rates are available as 4K/30P 4:4:4, 4K/60P 4:2:0 or 4K/60P 4:4:4 according to the reference. The LiveCore™ series supports 3840x2160 (UHD) and 4096x2160 resolutions (native resolution for DCI-compliant 4K).
The powerful processing capabilities of the LiveCore™ series allows managing different 4K display combinations without losing the use of true seamless layers. To ensure optimum efficiency, the LiveCore™ series offers the ability to perfectly switch a 4K native background or 4K layers. Advanced layer management ensures the highest flexibility: when one output is disabled, its layers can be added to another output, resulting in up to 12 true seamless layers per output in 2K, or 6 true seamless layers in 4K.
Thanks to the LiveCore™ Output Expander which adds up to 4 outputs to 12x4+1 LiveCore™ models, the features are amplified and offer other powerful combinations around 4K resolution for input and output. Custom Monitoring will allow personalization of the Preview/Monitoring output with the ability to display all sources in 4K.
An Ascender 48-4K will be demonstrated during InfoComm in Analog Way’s booth #C7125. The unit will be controlled through the Web RCS, a user-friendly user interface enabling operators to fully prepare a high resolution show and control it live.
