Blackmagic Updates Teranex

News Image
Blackmagic Design has released an update to its Teranex 2D, 3D and Express converters.

3.1 includes a new software application that lets customers remotely set up and change settings on from a central location, as well as adding a new 12G-SDI to quad HD-SDI conversions to Teranex Express.

The update also features a centralised control software application called Teranex Setup. Available for both Mac OS X and Windows computers, Teranex Setup enables users to remotely setup and control the Teranex 2D, 3D and Express converters. It automatically locates Teranex converters on the network and and then takes control of all features in the device.

Teranex Setup also includes a new user interface that enables customers to access features like source and output selection, proc amp, colour correction, aspect ratio, audio mapping and more.

The update gives Teranex Express customers new conversion features for managing high frame rate 12G-SDI connections, including the ability to convert a 12G-SDI Ultra HD video feed into Quad Link 3G-SDI video. This Quad Link 3G-SDI is used on any Ultra HD monitor where the Ultra HD image is made of 4 x 1080HD SDI resolution video 'tiles' that are recombined in the monitor. Each of the Quad Link 3G-SDI feeds may also be sent to an independent monitor when creating video wall Ultra HD displays from four 1080HD resolution monitors.

The update supports UHD frame rates from 23.98fps to 60fps, meaning it can now be used for outputting the resolution to a wider range of display devices, including video walls, large LED screens and older 3G-SDI equipment. The update adds 30 and 60fps Ultra HD support to Teranex Express, enabling customers to select up to 227 different types of conversions.

"Broadcasters ask for Teranex quality by name because they know it's the best way to convert between different video formats and standards," said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. "The new Teranex Setup software makes it easy to control Teranex converters from anywhere in a facility or studio, and the new Teranex Express quad mode will help customers integrate the latest 12G-SDI Ultra HD 2160p60 video devices into existing HD broadcast equipment."
