It enables broadcasters with comprehensive monitoring and 3 Gb/s functionality at a low cost
Harris Corporation has introduced the QVM6800+ Quad card, a quad-split multiviewer in a card that brings multi-image display processing functionality to Harris 6800+ modular core processing platform.
According to Harris, the QVM6800+ offers quick configuration, setup and operation. As a three-slot module in the 2RU 6800+ frame, the QVM6800+ requires a minimum amount of rack space, allowing up to six quads to be populated in one frame. It is ideal for outside broadcast/mobile production vehicles and studio production facilities, as well as existing 6800+ customers.
The QVM6800+ multiviewer card includes four auto-sensing inputs, as well as simultaneous DVI and HD-SDI outputs. With resolutions up to 1920x1200p, the QVM6800+ module includes embedded audio and video alarm capabilities, enabling operators to better respond to any problems. Configuration is done with the intuitive Z-Configurator layout editing software, a Windows-based editor that allows a user to configure the multiviewer for setup and operation. The QVM6800+ multiviewer card also supports CCS Protocol (CCSP) allowing full integration with CCS Navigator monitoring and control software.
Harris has announced that its QS100HD Quad module, which fits into the expansion slots of the Sony LMD-xx50W series of LUMA monitors, is now available via Harris channel partners throughout the US.
Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications, said: The 6800+ platform has always made it easy for broadcasters to cost-effectively migrate to new standards without rebuilding their infrastructure, and the QVM6800+ module is no exception.
It is the only Quad card on the market to offer auto-sensing of all input formats, including 3Gb/s, HD-SDI, SDI and composite sources. With the QVM6800+, broadcasters can invest in emerging technology, such as 3Gb/s, at an extremely attractive price point, ensuring they will be prepared for both today’s and tomorrow’s monitoring needs.
