tvONE has announced auto-switching capabilities for its C2-2855 Universal Scaler.

Described as ‘a high performance scaler that provides best-in-class video scaling and format conversion’, the C2-2855 can now act as a standalone device thanks to its new auto-switching functionality.

It allows the user to connect their source and have it automatically displayed on screen without having to press any buttons. 

With the C2-2855, the incoming video resolution is detected, analysed and the user is ready to present. 

Users in situations that regularly put them with little or no technical supervision could benefit from this functionality, with areas such as meeting rooms, medical environments, teaching spaces and live staging events being targeted by tvONE.

The C2-2855 has two other derivatives within its product family, the C2-2755 Video Scaler and the C2-2655 Scan Converter. 

When asked about tvONE’s new user interface and software designs, Andy Fliss, tvONE’s director of sales and marketing – the Americas, said: “Our R&D team flawlessly succeeded in delivering on our customers’ needs.

“The C2-2×55 product line diminishes installation time and shortens learning curves and that’s where integrators and rental and staging experts find success today.”

The C2-2×55 is capable of handling a variety of inputs and outputs, including: SD/HD/3G-SDI, HDMI, DVI, Composite Video, YC, YUV, YPbPr or RGB. 

An included key feature allows an image to be keyed over another and faded in and out due to the 4:4:4 sampling format for RGB sources.

Five full-frame still images can be stored and switched along with five logos.

Stereo Audio switching is provided by an integral 4×1 audio routing switcher. 

Four unbalanced stereo inputs can be assigned to each of the video inputs and switched to a rear mounted analog connector or embedded on the HDMI/DVI-U/SDI outputs.

Digital audio can be de-embedded and output via the analogue connector which provides Digital-to-Analogue conversion. 

It can also be assigned as an Audio-Follow-Video (AFV) source for any of the video connectors or re-embedded onto another digital capable output.

Transitions permit Seamless cut, fade or wipe transitions between input sources.

The Picture-In-Picture (PIP) functionality allows an input to be inset in a window over a second input or vice versa, with the PIP window having the ability to be placed anywhere on the screen.
