Grass Valley Intros New Multiviewer to European Market

IBC will provide European customers with their first chance to get a close-up look at Grass Valley’s new high-quality, fully integrated multiviewer capability in the family of Trinix NXT multi-format digital video routing switchers.

A new multiviewer is available for the Grass Trinix routing lineup.

Introduced at NAB, the new option supports infrastructures up to 3 Gb/s, while providing up to eight SDI multiviewer monitor outputs per card—including the ability to monitor audio for each source. The Trinix Multiviewer is ideally suited to monitoring within all types of broadcast control rooms, live production and distribution facilities, and mobile trucks.

The new Trinix NXT Multiviewer is easily installed into a new Trinix NXT router or field-integrated into existing Grass Valley Trinix frames.

Each multiviewer board includes 32 scalars with all inputs on each board supporting all video standards (from 480i to 1080p). By using the card’s cascade capability, the system can also support up to 128 images on a single output without rescaling the cascaded signals. Users can also set up a single image to span multiple monitors, creating stunning video cubes.

With less than 75 watts typical power consumption for eight outputs, the Trinix NXT Multiviewer features two MADI inputs for discrete AES audio monitoring in addition to embedded audio monitoring capabilities from any source routed to the multiviewer. It also has Sophisticated graphics, tally (TSL and Image Video), and UMD support, signal monitoring, status, and alarming functions
