Driving HD monitoring forward with Zandar at IBC

Zandar Technologies will be Driving HD at IBC 2006 as they demonstrate enhanced HDTV monitoring capabilities in their MultiViewer range in outside broadcast applications.
The Zandar stand #8.411 will feature an OB vehicle scenario with multiple Predator HD MultiViewers configured across a bank of LCD monitors while in the outside exhibitions (#OEH218), SBP’s new OB vehicle will be open to visitors to show a working installation of the FusionPro+ and Predator HD MultiViewers inside.
The International broadcast and production community will have the opportunity to witness the outstanding flexibility and control of Zandar MultiViewers – whether in the studio, control room or at demanding live outside broadcast events.
The Predator HD MultiViewers (HD4, HD8, HD12 and HD16) offer true HD quality images, driving high resolution displays up to 1080p with auto-detect of SDI and HD-SDI signals. 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. The Predator range can also uniquely output Dual HD across two displays at various 50Hz resolutions using the ZdH Zandar Dual Head display feature.
The modular FusionPro+ MultiViewer 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, 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 with the ZdH Dual Head display capability available as an option.
At IBC, Zandar will demonstrate how the ZdH reduces capital costs by seamlessly converting the 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 and making it particularly suitable for space-saving OB truck installations.
All systems boast immediate startups and can be easily reconfigured at the touch of a button, making this comprehensive product range ideal for HDTV monitoring in a variety of applications.
