The partnership will provide system integrators with a wide range of key components for video routing, conversion, signal processing and multi-image display solutions.

The multiviewers offer support for HD-SDI and SD-SDI inputs and high resolution outputs up to 1920 x 1200 at 50 or 60 Hz, including 1080p. The solution also features input auto-detection, source window sizing and positioning capabilities, full-screen mode allowing users to turn any of the source windows to full screen, ability to cascade modules for large-scale monitoring applications, static / dynamic labels, and tally support.
