  • IP gateways

    Crystal Vision's two IP gateways are the ideal products for integrating SDI into an IP environment.

    The IP products are software apps that run on the MARBLE-V1 media processor – purpose-built video over IP hardware that fits in the Vision frames. No other IP products make it quite so easy for your systems to grow and mature with the transition. To work with new essence-based standards like SMPTE 2110 (or to change the functionality of your product completely), you just need to buy a new low-cost app to run on your MARBLE-V1 hardware.

    The SDI6-IP-2022 app encapsulates SDI to SMPTE 2022 IP to allow the transport of uncompressed video over 10GbE IP networks. The IP-SDI6-2022 app de-encapsulates SDI from 10GbE IP networks.

    When your needs change, you can simply install a different software app on your MARBLE-V1 hardware.

    More about the SDI6-IP-2022 gateway...
    • Software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor

    • Encapsulates SDI to IP to allow signal transportation over 10GbE IP networks

    • Supports SMPTE 2022-6 and 2022-7 protocols (simply install a different app for different protocols)

    • Converts six HD/SD or three 3Gb/s SDI input connections and allows flexible assignment of the converted flows to either of the two output 10GbE links

    • Second 10GbE link can be configured for SMPTE 2022-7 redundant streaming

    • Supports 31 SDI video standards

    • Unicast and multicast transmission support

    • SDI sources synchronised to common reference timing source prior to IP encapsulation for clean switching of sources into encapsulation flow

    • Choice of multiple timing sources with fail-over: PTP, two analogue Black and Burst or tri-level syncs references via Vision frame, or video input

    • Know your signal is present and valid, thanks to signal monitoring and fault detection

    • Flexible control: select from, front and remote panels, SNMP and web browser

    • Save rack space: MARBLE-V1 media processor fits in Vision rack frame alongside interface products, with up to ten cards in 3U and two in 1U

    • Five year warranty (with product registration)

  • IP to IP translator

    Crystal Vision's IP-IP-2022 IP translator is ideal for any applications where network settings need to be changed in some way.

    It can be used for network address translation – ideal for connecting systems with conflicting IP addresses. It can be used to translate multicast addresses to unicast addresses – useful for those who want to distribute IP encapsulated video flows. It can be used for SMPTE 2022-6 to 2022-7 protocol translation. And as a firewall it's fast enough to handle multiple video flows.

    Crystal Vision's IP products are software apps that run on the MARBLE-V1 media processor – purpose-built video over IP hardware that fits in the Vision frames. No other IP products make it quite so easy for your systems to grow and mature with the transition. To work with new essence-based standards like SMPTE 2110 (or to change the functionality of your product completely), you just need to buy a new low-cost app to run on your MARBLE-V1 hardware.

    Broadcasters are discovering they have all sorts of new issues to solve using IP – and the IP-IP-2022 could be the ideal product to solve them.

    More about the IP-IP-2022 IP to IP translator...
    • Software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor

    • De-encapsulates and re-encapsulates video (up to six HD/SD or three 3Gb/s) between up to four bi-directional 10GbE IP network interfaces

    • Supports SMPTE 2022-6 and 2022-7 protocols (simply install a different app for different protocols)

    • Ideal for applications such as network address translation, protocol translation, unicast to multicast address translation and for setting firewall restrictions

    • Supports 31 video standards

    • Inflow sources synchronised to common reference timing source prior to IP encapsulation for clean switching of sources into encapsulation flow

    • Choice of multiple timing sources with fail-over: PTP or two analogue Black and Burst or tri-level syncs references via Vision frame

    • Know your signal is present and valid, thanks to signal monitoring and fault detection

  • Safire 3 real-time chroma keyer

    Crystal Vision's Safire 3 real-time chroma keyer offers affordable support for resolutions from SD to 1080p, and includes features such as lighting compensation, colour correction and video delay. Broadcasters everywhere are using it for applications from weather to immersive virtual studios, and have all discovered that Safire 3 gives the best results possible, with its auto setup plus easy-to-use adjustments using recently enhanced hardware control panel or any web browser.

    Safire 3 is ideal for any live virtual studio or sports production where you care about the quality of the chroma keying. It wins those side-by-side evaluations. And you'll get fantastic support from Crystal Vision, with a five year warranty. Find out more below.

    More about Safire 3...
    • Real-time chroma keyer for use with 3Gb/s, High Definition and Standard Definition sources (31 different video standards)

    • Ideal for any live chroma keying or virtual set production - used by broadcasters and sports graphics providers across the world, including BBC Weather

    • Get excellent results with minimal sensitivity to camera noise: uses extremely sophisticated algorithm to determine how the key is derived

    • Easy to set up and operate: with cursor-based multi-point sampling to set up the optimised default settings - and input freeze to make things even easier

    • Tweak the picture until you're happy: range of fine-tuning tools to optimise the picture in more challenging conditions

    • Key on any colour: select blue, green or any colour you like - including sporting surfaces such as grass

    • Works with reflective and transparent objects, from spectacles to smoke: linear chroma keying allows areas of the final picture to be a mixture of both Foreground and Background
