Analog Way has released Eikos, a multilayer, high resolution mixer seamless switcher with four Scalers, aimed rental and staging applications.
Eikos offers up to 12 inputs including four fitted with SDI and two with DVI-D. It outputs digital and analogue signals in DVI and VGA (RGBHV) simultaneously with a selection of many formats from HDTV to Computer 2K. There are three different operating modes: multilayer mixer, 12 x 2 seamless native matrix and QuadraVision.
In multilayer mixer mode it can display up to six layers comprising three live sources, one frame and two logos. Up to two PIPs can be displayed on a live background, or three PIPs on a still background. Live layers can be customised by the user with various attributes including borders, movements, zooms, cuts, fades, wipes, slides and smooth moves. Eikos uses one output as a preview and the other for the audience.
With the 12 x 2 scaled native matrix, any of the 12 inputs can be in cut or fade and synchronised on the two outputs. Up to two PIPs can be added on a still background in Matrix mode. A mirror function allows it to display a PIP sent on the first output on the second output. The PIP size and position are automatically restored on the second display.
QuadraVision mode allows the display of four computer or video sources on the main output. The display of the four windows can be done according to four different pre-programmed presets with different window sizes and positions available. Different effects and transitions are also available to manage the windows (zoom, cut, fade, wipe, slide, smooth move).
The Integrated Audio Stereo switcher features 12 inputs (eight analogue and four from embedded SDI) and two outputs. An additional auxiliary input can be mixed into any output. Master volume and individual input level can be adjusted. Each input and output offers balanced or unbalanced connections. The Video Output card provides SD or HD TV formats in various signals from Composite Video to HD SDI. This output can be used to record the show by outputting the same content as the Main output.
