Analog Way’s Vertige™ Controller Now Supports Matrix Routers and External IP Devices
Posted on Friday, December 11, 2015
December 2015 – Analog Way, an innovation-driven designer and manufacturer that specializes in computer and video signal processing and distribution, announces a new version for the powerful Vertige™ controller to be presented at ISE 2016. From February 9-12, 2016, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, the Vertige™ will be showcased on Analog Way’s booth # 1-N32 featuring the support of matrix routers and external IP devices.
Vertige™ (Ref. VRC300) is Analog Way’s powerful remote console for wide screen and multi-screen configuration. Since its launch, the Vertige™ has been enhanced through several software releases. The latest version (V02.02) brings major improvements. The Vertige™ can now control most popular upstream matrix routers (Extron®, Lightware, Kramer, Blackmagic Design, etc.) and allows dynamic routing of the video signals to the LiveCore™devices’ inputs according to screens content. If a matrix router is not available in the default set provided by Analog Way, the Technical Support team can easily generate a custom descriptor that can then be directly imported into the Vertige™ through USB. Other improvements include the configuration and control of the confidence screens, usually dedicated to the speaker to display the content visible to the audience and more.
At ISE 2016, the Vertige™ will be showcasing our next firmware version V03 (available Q1, 2016). In that version, the Vertige™ will support the latest LiveCore™ features: 4K inputs, Layer Cut & Fill, advanced layer management, and monitoring widget layout customization. This version is a new step in Analog Way’s strategy to develop the Vertige™ as a powerful show controller. The product’s operation environment is now enlarged to remote control of external IP devices. By simply pressing a user key button on the front panel, operators can now perform standard operations on external IP devices such as recalling presets on any Analog WayMidra™ device, controlling the playback of a media player or positioning a PTZ camera on the fly. As for the matrix routers, the library of external IP devices can be easily extended without the need of upgrading the Vertige™.
To show these highly powerful capabilities, the Vertige™ will be showcased at ISE 2016 on a demanding configuration. The product will be controlling the following devices at the same time: several Analog WayLiveCore™ systems, one Midra™ mixer, a matrix router, a media player, and two PTZ cams.
