TV ONE's CORIOflex Gives More Choice And Flexibility

TV One’s CORIOflex breaks out of the industry mold by letting the integrator decide the number and type of video inputs, outputs and features.
CORIOflex is designed so that one C2 video processor acts as a base unit and a variety of S2 Expansion units may be added to make a custom switcher/scaler known as a CORIOflex system. There are almost limitless combinations and units can be easily interchanged making it extremely flexible and cost effective.
"We noticed a gap in the industry between manufacturers and systems integrators," said David Barnes, president of TV One. "We felt this was a perfect solution to bridge that gap and give integrators a chance to be their own architects and build a CORIOflex system that fits their install needs exactly."
CORIOflex units are interconnected via the rear panel Options Connectors to become fully integrated from a video/audio flow and control standpoint. For example, when a C2 switcher/scaler’s inputs are increased using multiple S2 Input Expansion Modules, the entire system functions as a single unit. All available inputs appear with equal status, regardless if they are directly on the C2 unit or via an attached S2 unit.
Building a CORIOflex system is easy. A system integrator simply chooses a base C2 unit with the features desired. Since all interconnections are external and recognition is automatic, configuring the system is as simple as plugging in the Options, Video and Audio Interconnect Cables. Since the outputs of the S2 units are connected to the inputs of the C2 unit, one input of the overall system is lost. For example, the C2-2250 has two Composite Video inputs and when the output of a S2-105CV, which has five Composite Video inputs, is attached to the input of the C2-2250, it occupies one of the C2 Composite Video inputs, so the system total is now six Composite Video inputs.
There are a variety of inputs and outputs available with CORIOflex. Depending on which C2 unit and S2 units are chosen the following inputs and outputs can be accommodated: RGB/YPbPr, YUV, Composite Video, S-Video, DVI or SDI. There are many combinations and ways to configure a CORIOflex system. A basic example would be to build a Seamless Switcher with 35 inputs of Composite Video, S-Video, RGB/YPbPr and DVI.
The CORIOflex system’s standard features include automatic incoming resolution detection and support of multiple worldwide television standards. It can handle a maximum input PC resolution of 2048 x 2048 and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p. Variable Zoom can go up to 10x allowing enlargement of any part of the computer screen while Variable Shrink can go down to 10 percent. Depending on which C2 unit is used as the base, the CORIOflex system can have advanced features such as Genlock, Picture-in-Picture, Chromakey, Lumakey, Mixing and Edge Blending. In addition to seamless cuts and dissolves, special effects transitions are possible between any of the CORIOflex system inputs when the base C2 unit has that feature. CORIOflex can also incorporate stereo audio switching with variable delay.
When it comes to controlling the CORIOflex system, there are several options including a Windows Control Panel, a single RS-232 interface and in the case of systems based on the C2-2000 series, an IP interface is provided. CORIOflex models include all rackmounting accessories. Since CORIOflex is firmware based like all CORIO2 products, new firmware can be uploaded quickly and easily at no extra cost to the user.
