Analog Way has added a new powerful multi-screen seamless switcher to its LiveCore series, the Ascender 16.
Analog Way’s new Ascender 16 (Ref. ASC1602) is a powerful Multi-Screen Seamless Switcher based on the LiveCore platform. Ascender 16 features twelve inputs with forty-two source plugs: 6xHDMI, 9xDVI-I, 3xDisplayPort, 12x3G/HD/SD-SDI and 12xUniversal Analog. It can handle any source from composite video, up to 2560x1600, and outputs a variety of formats, including HD-TV and Computer formats up to 2560x1600 and 4K. Ascender 16 is available with full 4K resolution I/O as an optional feature. With this option the device supports 3840x2160 (UHD) and 4096x2160 resolutions (native resolution for DCI-compliant 4K).
Ascender 16 includes an independent Dual-Link output for monitoring purposes, with a Live Source Mosaic layout. The product delivers varied display configurations: Mixer, Hybrid, Hard Edge and Soft Edge configurations. In addition to a native background layer, Ascender 16 can display up to 2 true seamless scaled layers per output. One hundred slots are available to store frames or logos in the device’s non-volatile memory. Layers, including frames and logos, can be controlled individually in time and transition, and can be fully resized. Advanced layer management ensures higher flexibility and safety: when one output is disabled, its layers can be added to another output, resulting in a setup with 8 layers on a single output possible.
Ascender 16 can be controlled via the Web RCS, an intuitive Web-based Remote Control Software specifically designed for the LiveCore series. For more demanding applications, Ascender 16 can be controlled through the Vertige, a powerful Remote Console. To facilitate the ease of integration, Ascender 16 can also be easily controlled throughAMXand Crestron 2 or 3-Seriessystems thanks to a full package of drivers available on www.analogway.com. Additionally Tablet and iOS apps are available on the app stores.
