Lawo Adds Multiviewer Module To V__matrix

News Image
Lawo has announced the launch of its new V__matrix vm_mv24-4 and vm_mv16-4 virtual modules (VMs), at NAB 2017.

The new modules adds high quality multiviewer functionality to the V__matrix ecosystem when loaded onto a c100 core processing module. Capable of handling both IP and SDI sources, these VMs can monitor uncompressed 4K/UHD, 3G, HD and SD video as well as both embedded and discrete audio while generating pixel perfect mosaics with ultra-low latency.

The award-winning V__matrix, premiered at last year's NAB, is a software-defined IP core routing and processing platform based on data center principles of flexibility, fabric computing and COTS economics. Designed to provide a completely virtualized real-time production infrastructure, V__matrix leverages multiple cores connected to a high-capacity COTS IP network with redundant 10GE and 40GE connections to form a distributed IP routing and processing matrix with frame-accurate, clean switching just like a legacy baseband matrix.

The vm_mv24-4 can monitor up to 24 sources or max 36 Gbps of IP or SDI video while the vm_mv16-4 is capable of up to 16 sources or a max of 36 Gbps. Both multiviewer VMs can generate up to 4 output heads (mosaics) and scale and display any source on any output head without limitation. The same source can be displayed on multiple output heads at different resolutions. The output heads can be configured as either HD, 3G or 4K and output over IP interfaces or, using the modular rear-plate I/O, as SDI.

Both VMs also optionally support SMPTE2042 VC-2 compressed video which further increases their monitoring capabilities by allowing monitoring of more 3G and 4K/UHD signals without hitting their respective processing capacity maximums. The VC-2 option also includes the ability to compress the IP output heads which allows for 4K/UHD mosaics to be transported over a 10Gbps IP network.

The V__matrix multiviewer VMs were designed to be controlled by Lawo's groundbreaking touch operated configuration system "theWALL". This unique HTML5 based GUI makes mosaic configuration with borders, colors, UMDs, tally etc. a simple case of drag and drop.
