Apantac, an internationally recognized manufacturer and pioneer of cost-effective yet feature-rich multiviewers announces that its TAHOMA T# Multiviewers are being installed by Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) for its nationwide news studio technology upgrade. An extensive line-up of Apantac’s T# Multiviewers are being installed in ABC control rooms at all twelve studios throughout Australia.
Specifically, Apantac developed an interface between its T# Multiviewers and the Grass Valley Karrera K-Frame switcher housed at each studio. This software integration provides a level of communication between the switchers and the multiviewers that streamlines the synchronization between the two systems. The integration allows the T# Multiviewers to sync directly with the K-Frame, so that all source, UMD naming and labels as well as auxiliary source setting changes on the switcher are automatically populated on the T# multiviewer output windows. This ensures that the monitor wall driven by the Apantac T# multiviewers and fed by the switcher is automatically updated with display information that is continually updated as switching events occur.
The T# Multiviewers are considered one of the most flexible and versatile Multiviewers on the market today. With the T#, a facility can build the Multiviewer that they need by choosing from a selection of input and output boards, or from a selection of pre-configured models. Plus, one can mix & match a variety of signal types (SDI, HDMI, IP, Fiber, HDBaseT and more) for multi-image display processing and monitoring on displays, without any external conversion. T#’s unique and high bandwidth universal mid plane architecture allows any type of future format to be added by simply plugging in a new hot swappable input board, making it truly future-proof.
“Working with the Apantac team has been an excellent example of flexibility working in a turnkey technology environment, seamless integration with a variety of solutions, as well as a commitment to providing the customer with an advanced solution to meet their needs,” comments senior engineer, ABC.
