Projected Image Digital launches new D-Tek products

Digital media server and content specialists Projected Image Digital has launched two important new products from D-Tek Industries – the D-Switch and the D-Switch Pro.
Both products are designed to aid the growing creative convergence between visual production mediums like lighting and video.
Projected Image Digital’s David March said: “We’re excited to be working with D-Tek Industries and products that are at the forefront of visual production and creativity. The industry is currently moving very fast, and these are the first of a whole series of related products”.
D-Tek Industries donates £5 for every unit sold to the charities Warchild and Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy.
The D-Switch unit is the first in a series of innovative new products being exclusively distributed by Projected Image Digital.
The D-Series products have been developed to give lighting designers the power and flexibility to control the video elements of their show.
The D-Switch unit switches four synchronised (genlocked) video signals to a single video output via DMX512 lighting control protocol. Four video sources e.g. video sources, DVDs, or cameras, can be switched between, and output to, a single video feed going to a video projector or LED wall. The switching is controlled by a DMX512 lighting console using only a single channel to select between the user’s four video sources and black out.
The unit also features a manual selection mode and an automatic chase function.
The standard D-Switch unit is a Composite Video and S-Video unit.
Component Video and Serial Digital Interface (SDI) units will be released in early 2004.
The D-Switch Pro unit is the second new D-Tek Industries unit enabling lighting designers to have the power and flexibility of controlling the video elements of their show.
The D-Switch Pro unit allows the switching of four synchronized (genlocked) video signals to four video outputs via the DMX512 lighting control protocol.
Four video sources - videos, DVDs or cameras - can be switched between, matrixed to, and output to four video feeds - either projectors or LED walls. The switching is controlled by a DMX512 lighting console using four DMX channels to select the four video outputs from the four sources, plus a black out function.
The unit also features a manual selection mode and an automatic chase function.
The standard D-Switch Pro is a Composite Video and S-Video unit, and Component Video and Serial Digital Interface (SDI) units will be released in early 2004.
