The FusionPro along with the new features will be shown on a variety of display devices at NAB including two Clarity Visual Systems UXGA rear projection cubes, a Christie Digital SXGA rear projection cube, and a Zenith 30" LCD monitor. New features on display will include:
• High Quality UXGA (1600 x 1200) output
• In-Picture Audio Monitoring of analog, AES/EBU & SDI embedded audio
• HD Inputs
• Z-Manager multi-system control software with support for graphics and audio
The FusionPro High-Resolution Video Display Processor combines Zandar's multi-window display technology with one of the most powerful image processors to date. The FusionPro carries a range of plug-in processing cards and associated i/o, enabling users to combine input formats like analog video, SDI, computer, DVI, and HD in the one system. The cards can be used in 3RU or 1RU frames. The FusionPro supports up to 13 dual-channel input cards in a 3RU or 4 dual-channel input cards in a 1RU chassis or from 8 to 26 real-time, high resolution - up to SXGA (1280 x 1024). Zandar will be showing UXGA (1600 x 1200) at NAB with scalable windows on a single large screen display. The modular chassis is designed to provide robust solutions for large-scale audio/visual display applications including Command & Control, Virtual Monitor Walls, Presentation, Video-conferencing, and Control Rooms.
The modular 3RU chassis has a dual redundant power supply and along with the 1RU has easily accessible front-loading processing cards, and support for local and remote control. High image quality is achieved through a combination of 10bit RGB outputs, an advanced video rendering engine, and dynamic phase adjustment for accurate pixel mapping.
Zandar's new FusionPro 3RU has been in use in a number of key installations since March 2002. Some of these installations include Mellon Financial Corporation in Pittsburgh, Star TV Hong Kong, The European Broadcasting Union and WIN Television Network in Australia.
Optional software for both the 3RU and 1RU allows user configuration of displays (Z-Editor), and multi-system control (Z-Manager). Options also exist for UMD/Tally, hot-swappable front-loading redundant PSU, Dual Output Display and in-picture audio monitoring of analog. AES/EBU is provided by plug in cards and SDI embedded audio.
