Uncompressed 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 and HDR Signal Management Solutions for Film, Broadcast and Post-Production Demonstrated at Stand 10.D46
MILFORD, Conn. – Aug. 29, 2016 -- Thinklogical, a global manufacturer of secure, high-performance KVM signal extension and switching systems for video-rich applications, today announced the launch of its new TLX24 matrix switch at IBC 2016, Sept. 9-13 2016 in Amsterdam, in stand 10.D46.
The TLX24 offers a compact, high performance, non-blocking, 24-port matrix switch for complete, end-to-end routing of video and computer peripheral signals. The 1RU matrix is available with fiber-optic, CATx and hybrid connectivity options, and may be configured as a unidirectional 24x24 or a bidirectional 12x12 switch.
The TLX24 delivers a 100 percent uncompressed, 10Gbps signal path with the lowest signal latency in the industry. When combined with TLX extenders, the TLX24 offers precise pixel-for-pixel transmission and switching of UHD, HDR and 4K DCI resolution video -- up to 4096 x 2160 resolution, 60Hz frame rate, 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and 30-bit per pixel color depth -- with no visual artifacts, jitter or lost frames, and with instantaneous computer peripheral (keyboard, mouse, trackball, etc.) responsiveness.
TLX24 incorporates an easy-to-use push-button front panel interface for simplified access and control, and its small form factor chassis is ideal for space-constrained applications such as broadcast control rooms, post-production suites and O.B. mobile production trucks.
True “Any-to-Any” Switching for Flexibility and Efficiency
With a protocol-agnostic architecture, virtually any signal -- regardless of type or standard -- can be switched through the TLX24, and any port on the matrix can be quickly configured to accommodate any signal format or direction, in or out. It is easy to change any port on the TLX24 to be video or audio or machine-or-tablet control -- whatever configuration is required to accomplish a task -- in just minutes.
With this true “any-to-any” switching capability, a flexible and efficient “virtual-suite” design concept is made possible, where operators in all of the rooms in a broadcast or post-production facility —including control rooms, edit suites, theaters, slow motion replay workstations, and viewing rooms—can instantly switch in and out of whatever computer they are controlling.
Having one routing system with the flexibility to change the purpose of a suite or workstation with the push of a button, without having to physically re-wire or move servers and displays dramatically improves efficiency and productivity without compromising creativity, quality or reliability.
“Based on customer demand, Thinklogical has engineered all of the power and performance of our mid- to large-scale matrix switches into a new compact form factor with the TLX24,” said Joe Pajer, president and CEO of Thinklogical. “The uncompressed high-bandwidth signal stream and flexible switching options found in TLX24 means content creation professionals no longer need to compromise on productivity, performance and resolution quality when working with UHD, 4K or HDR content.”
