Recognizing that customers need to monitor more sources at a single location, Grass Valley introduced the second-generation of its multiviewer option for the Grass Valley Trinix NXT routing switcher.
The tightly integrated multiviewer incorporates Grass Valley’s latest FPGA-based scalar technology to enable multiple views combined with graphical images to display audio, clocks, mnemonics, and tally alarms on single or multiple displays. This allows users to proactively preserve 24/7 operations, reduce maintenance costs, and troubleshoot problems before they escalate.
The new TMV-2 Multiviewer option is targeted at live production, studio operations, and especially OB van operators because of its compact size and fully featured monitoring capabilities. With its flexible 32×8 architecture, the Trinix NXT Multiviewer offers low power consumption (80 watts), high scaling quality, and low signal latency (20 milliseconds).
“Our newest Trinix NXT Multiviewer option boasts the smallest footprint and a comprehensive set of features, ensuring a well-running installation and reduced operating costs,” said Charlie Dunn, executive vice president of Products at Grass Valley. “With a fully integrated multiviewer solution, users benefit from the simplicity of not having to worry about outboard gear and cabling, while saving time, money, and maintenance costs.
The Trinix NXT Multiviewer supports Grass Valley’s XPT native protocol for accurate source switching and is compatible with TSL and Image Video protocols for tally and mnemonic transfers.
Every Trinix routing switcher sold can be upgraded to 3 Gb/s, as well as can be equipped with the Trinix NXT Multiviewer option.
Pricing and Availability
The new TMV-2 Trinix NXT Multiviewer is currently available, at a list price of $38,995 (€31.995).
