Zandar announces more HDTV monitoring solutions at Broadcast LIVE

Zandar Technologies, a leading innovator in the design and development of high resolution image processing and control
systems, will be introducing the enhanced HDTV capabilities in its MultiViewer range to the UK broadcast and production community at Booth #D54 at Earls Court 2, London between 20 - 22 June, 2006.
Addressing the challenges of HD monitoring, all MultiViewers are enhanced to support genuine HD output resolutions (1080p), automatic aspect ratio management and auto-sensing of HD and SD signals.
Hot off the press, and newly announced at NAB is the extended range of Predator HD solutions. The popular compact HD4 and HD8 MultiViewers are now complemented by the higher capacity Predator HD12 and Predator HD16 solutions to offer unprecedented image quality that is synonymous with the Zandar MultiViewer brand. The new 2RU systems accept 12 or 16 inputs to offer a comprehensive product range that is ideal for HDTV monitoring in a variety of applications.
All Predator HD MultiViewers include support for HD-SDI and SDI inputs and drive high resolution displays up to 1080p. With an extensive feature set, as standard, including audio and video monitoring, UMD & Tallies, clock display, and LAN control, the HD MultiViewers have numerous control options including the intuitive Z-Configurator layout editing software, On-Screen Display, GPI, and ZRP remote panel.
Additional functionality is available with the Predator HD8, HD12 and HD16 MultiViewers which feature the ZdH Zandar Dual Head display capability as standard. ZdH seamlessly converts the Predator HD MultiViewer into a wall processor, capable of driving two displays as one virtual super-screen.
With the ability to display any input on either output, images can also be spanned across both displays to add further flexibility.
At Broadcast LIVE, the company shall showcase the Predator HD8 to demonstrate the superb control options available with the ZdH display.
Predator HD8 can display eight images on one ultra-high resolution display or be easily mode-switched to DualQuad for display across two screens, making it particularly suitable for space-saving OB truck installations.
Also on display is the modular FusionPro+ MultiViewer which also supports high definition resolutions up to 1080p. Available in either 1RU or 3RU, this fully configurable system combines multiple inputs in all common formats such as analog video, SDI, HD-SDI, RGBHV computer sources, DVI sources, and audio, all in one system. Like the Predator HD range, FusionPro+ is easily set up and managed using the intuitive Z-Configurator layout software and features ZdH Zandar Dual Head as an option to achieve significant cost-savings.
As a true testament to the truly superior image quality and flexibility offered, project successes of the HD Series of Multiviewers include
Switzerland's largest TV production company, tpc, who has installed multiple Predator HD4 MultiViewers to drive an impressive and innovative large production monitor wall inside their HDTV OB truck; while FusionPro+ MultiViewers are used in a brand new sports playout facility and news studio at Norway's TV 2 and in Maori TV's control room.
