- TAHOMA-DE “Universal” – supports broadcast video and computer inputs on a single display
o 4-16 HDMI, DVI, DVI, VGA, YPbPr, Composite, HD-SDI, SD-SDI Inputs
o 4-64 HD-SDI, SD-SDI, Composite Inputs
o 4-16 HD-SDI, SD-SDI, Composite Inputs
o Looping video inputs
o 16-32 HD-SDI, SD-SDI Inputs
o Built-in routing switcher – any input to any output
- TAHOMA-Mini-Q-V “quad-split”
o 4 3G/HD/SD-SDI and Composite (PAL / NTSC) Inputs
o Combines the functionality of a Multiviewer, 16x4 or 16x8 routing switcher for the Multiviewer, up/down/cross converter
and associated 16x1 router, audio routing switcher, and an audio embedder
All Multiviewer Series’ within the TAHOMA platform include a built-in CATx extender on every output for extending signals up to 115 feet. They support DVI, HDMI, VGA, and SDI outputs up to resolutions of 2048 x 1080 or 1920 x 1080, depending on the series. The TAHOMA platform also incorporates the Apantac “skin-technology” allowing users to customize the on-screen display of graphics including; borders, labels, fonts, tally LEDs, clock faces, logos, embedded audio, discrete audio meters and audio / video alarms. The built-in 2D graphics accelerator ensures that the display of on-screen graphics is in high quality true color.
The internal high-speed 6 Gigabit bus aids rapid interconnection between the video processing modules, which function to scale and position the input sources on the display, add all the on-screen display elements, supports the built-in CATx extender, and aids with system expansion in order to display additional video sources.
Apantac’s intention with building a single platform across all its Multiviewer families, was that once the platform was established, new features could quickly and easily be carried through to the whole platform.
The TAHOMA platform of Multiviewers is well suited for a wide variety of small and large-scale installations, mobile vans, master control rooms, production studios, command and control, digital signage, medical imaging, distance educations, government and many other broadcast and professional audio visual applications.
