Eyeheight Serves At Wimbledon

Eyeheight returns to the field this week for the latest in a series of recent sport successes.
A DK-2 multi-rate linear downstream keyer from the geNETics range is on duty in southwest London, providing digital graphics to support live transmission of the 2013 Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships.
Equipped with a VP-10 video T-bar module and installed in an FB-9E chassis, the keyer is being used by a major outside-broadcast service provider to process overlays such as contestant identifiers which can be faded in and out over the live action.
"A highly compact unit, the DK-2 is ideal for use in OB vehicles, city-centre studios or wherever space is at a premium," said Eyeheight Sales Director Martin Moore.
"Up to six DK-2 modules can be housed in a 1U chassis under local control from an FP-9 front panel. They can also be fully operated via Ethernet from anywhere in the world. Features include 10-bit linear keying, manual or automatic transitions, a user-selectable choice of additive, multiplicative and self-key modes, and AES digital audio voiceover."
Compatible with all commonly used 625/525-line standard-definition, 720p intermediate-definition and 1080i high definition formats, the Eyeheight DK-2 incorporates background, fill and key inputs, wipe, matte and garbage-matte generation, independent main and preview keyers and EDH reinsertion for the main output. It is fully transparent to SDI-embedded audio and other ancillary data. Mechanical relay bypass is available as an option.
The Eyeheight DK-2 is equipped with inputs for slave fill sync, slave key sync and master input line sync plus independent programme and preview outputs. An RJ45 port allows connection of three GPI channels and tally as well as RS232-based on-board protocol control.
Held at the All England Club in southwest London since 1877, Wimbledon is the world's oldest tennis tournament and the only event of its kind still played on grass. The tournament takes place over two weeks in late June and early July, leading up to singles finals. Five major events are contested each year, as well as four junior events and four invitational events.
