TV One introduces the new CORIOmatrix C3-340 Scaling Routing Switcher

August 19, 2011

TV One will be delivering its brand new C3-340 Series CORIOmatrix at IBC 2011 held in Amsterdam on September 9th-13th.

The new C3-340 offers an industry first firmware based video routing, switching and video conversion platform. 16 AV universal module slots are available and the CORIOmatrix automatically recognises the modules inserted as an input or output module. There is no dedicated input or output slots when using 2-Channel DVI-U or 3G-SDI modules. It can be configured with up to 64 x 64 input/output 3G-SDI/DVI-U connection combinations. This flexibility allows end user configurations to be based on their own needs instead of the router forcing a certain setup and limited configuration. Additional DVI-U or 3G-SDI modules can be added later in open slots without having to re-set the router. All AV modules are hot swappable and recognised for immediate auto configuration.

The CORIOmatrix also provides Up, Down and Cross conversion between a variety of analogue and digital video formats thru 3G-SDI. The modules selected determine what format will be accommodated and the matrix size. Signal parameters of the incoming video may be adjusted. All settings are stored in nonvolatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off. User defined presets are also available to customise settings for various applications.

All the functions can be controlled via serial connection via RS-232/422/485, USB or IP. Windows software is provided. A front panel LCD option makes direct setup easy. Third party controllers permit a wide choice of control options. The unit is housed in a standard 4RU rackmount case and features an optional redundant hot swappable internal PSU and power inlet.

The CORIOmatrix includes advanced Digital Flicker Elimination circuitry and high 4:4:4 full bandwidth sampling rate ensures crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling ensures faithfully reproduced, high resolution colors. Pixel Level Motion Adaptive Diagonal Interpolation and Noise Reduction ensures high quality de-interlacing of PAL, NTSC and 1080i signals. 3:2 Pull-down ensures proper 24 fps film extraction from NTSC and 1080i sources.

The new C3-340 CORIOmatrix is part of the huge variety of product offerings from the CORIO2 & CORIO3 Technology ranges and will be on demonstration and display at the IBC 2011 Exhibition.
