MVP®

Multi-Image Display & Monitoring System

VistaLINK® enabled Thumblink™ Enabled Active Format Descriptor (AFD) Evertz IntelliGain® Enabled Evertz X-LINK™ Enabled 3Gb/s enabled

A single MVP® system can expand from 8 inputs with a single output, to as large as 1000+ inputs to more than 50 displays.

The MVP® revolutionizes the multi-display marketplace with a highly flexible, intuitive and simple yet comprehensive approach to virtual wall monitor applications. The possibility of displaying any input signal to any output monitor can now be realized without the need for DAs or upstream monitor routers.

MVP® Display

Key Features and Benefits

  • Highest quality video images - single pass processing
  • Hardware based - no PC on board, no hard-drive
  • RTOS - Real-Time Operating System
  • Not a frame limited architecture - PLink™ interconnects and Ethernet control; does not exhibit PCI bandwidth limitations
  • Expandable - frame not limited to a maximum number of inputs per system - cumulative bandwidth
  • True hot-swappable, front-access input, output modules and PSU
  • Fast power cycle recovery (15s)
  • Redundancy options for mission critical operations
  • Fiber output option - single fiber (single or Multi-Mode) up to 10km support
  • HD/SD serial output option
  • "Out of the box" implementation - set-up is quick and easy
    • 9:16 output aspect ratio support (WARP™)
    • Flexible - usually 2-3 solutions from the same system with options for future growth
    • User-friendly GUI - drag & drop control, fast preset recall and off-line development; real time display layout control
    • Consolidated - scaling, signal sniffing (fault monitoring), routing and fan-out of inputs
    • Supports many output display destinations
    • Eliminates the need for a preview/monitor router to support multiple inputs to multiple displays
    • Show multiple copies of the same BNC input across displays
    • Monitor everything - View by Exception with VistaLINK® and display video inputs only when faults are detected through built-in signal monitoring
