SMP-xx Modular MultiViewer Family
4,8,12 &16 Input Modular MultiViewer

The SMP−xx is our new fully−featured 1RU Modular MultiViewer. It is ideal for a wide range of Professional AV and High End Broadcast applications. SMP−xx is extremely flexible and allows for monitoring of a wide range of both Video and Audio sources on a single, or dual, independent displays. The compact 1RU frame features 6 modular slots, 2 of which are reserved for the Network and MultiViewer controller cards. The other 4 slots are available for modular Video or audio input cards. The frame is available either as a standard frame (SMP−Sxx) or as the optional SMP−Rxx. The SMP−Rxx frame features an integral 16x16 router for up to 3G HD−SDI. This makes the SMP−Rxx an ideal solution for space critical applications such as Outside Broadcast units where both routing and MultiViewing are required. The SMP−xx MultiViewer offers all the standard features you would expect from a fully−featured Broadcast MultiViewer such as tally support, sophisticated video/Audio/Metadata alarms, Under Monitor Display, Genlock input, Multiple clocks and timers and much more. But, despite its superb feature set, one of its key advantages is that we make it easy to use. The MultiViewer is controlled via an intuitive browser based GUI that enables you to free−from scale and position all your video/audio tiles on screen using simple drag and drop and click technology. .

Due to the simplicity of its control without loss of features, coupled with our outstanding 5 year warranty, the SMP−xx is already the MultiViewer of choice for a wide range of Broadcast and command and control applications worldwide. .

The SMP−xx can be expanded from 4 to 16 video inputs in increments of 4 at a time. Video inputs can be chosen to be a mixture of HD−SDI (up to 3G), HDMI (with HDCP), RGBHV, Component Video or Composite Video. Several rear modules can be partnered with our VIP−3 (or VIP−3D) video scaler cards to give ultimate input flexibility.

The SMP−xx is also extremely powerful in terms of its audio metering capability. Up to 16 channels of embedded audio from each Video input can be metered on screen via industry standard balistically correct scales. This gives you the ability to display metering of up to 256 channels of embedded audio simultaneously. External Analog or digital audio input cards can be added in place of Video input cards to allow for level metering of up to a maximum of 128 channels of external Digital or Analog audio. A selection of Analogue or Digital audio input and output cards can be partnered with our RMP−A32 Audio rear. Furthermore, the new optional VIP−3D Video scaler card offers metering (but not decoding) of Dolby® E Metadata embedded on the video inputs..

Two independent outputs are featured as standard on the SMP−xx. Each output offers both HDMI and HD−SDI (to 3G) in parallel. Each independent output also has the option to embed up to 4 pairs of audio selected from any of the embedded or external audio sources. This can be done independently for each output set. The SMP−xx also gives you the flexibility to add a second independent output card into one of the 4 modular slots. This would allow you, for instance, to have independent 4x2 and 8x2 MultiViewers in the same 1RU frame!.

Future expansion is easy with the SMP−xx. Additional video or audio input cards can be added in the future up to the frames capacity. Alternatively, if your inputs outgrow the 1RU SMP−xx frame, the same cards (including the network and MultiViewer controller card) can be transported to the larger 3RU MP−xx frame which will allow a maximum of 72 x Video inputs in total, meaning all you need to do is purchase the MP−xx frame and any additional input/output cards you require for expansion..
