Grass Valley, California, 27 April 2011 – Ensemble Designs will feature a new Layering Engine for use in presentation and live events. The new Layering Engine, part of Ensemble Designs’ Avenue signal integration system, will be demonstrated at the infoComm Show in Las Vegas, June 13-16, 2012, in Ensemble Designs’ booth C4820.
iPad control and monitoring set the Avenue Layering Engine apart from other small mixers, keyers and logo inserters. The iPad interface gives the operator freedom and flexibility in switching an event or show. Also, an iPad or web browser can be used to quickly and easily create keyed presets that can be recalled on-air by automation systems.
More than a traditional mix effect, the Layering Engine, has two, independent linear keyers, program/preset background transitions, and audio mixing, voice over and breakaway. The new Avenue P9425 Layering Engine provides a complete and flexible solution to combining audio and video content for high end video applications.
Layering Engine inputs can be driven by SDI signals from cameras, remote feeds, character generators, graphic and stillstore systems, and video servers. Each input has a built in frame synchronizer which means that cameras and other video sources don’t need to be genlocked. The full range of SDI signals from SD to HD and 3G formats are supported. Base configuration is 8×2 and larger systems can be configured up to 30 I/O ports. Realtime processing and low latency simplify system integration.
Based in Grass Valley, California, Ensemble Designs is in their 21th year of business and is a leading provider of signal processing and infrastructure products to the professional video and broadcast industry, and other government and commercial applications. Customers include CBS News, NASA, Major League Baseball, and the Olympic Broadcast Organisation,.
