At IBC 2015 SAM launched a new integrated multiviewer for its Sirius range of enterprise level multi-format routers. As well as offering the full range of facilities expected of a multiviewer, the new Sirius multiviewer adds powerful new capabilities, including streaming and browse outputs, and Media Biometrics intelligent monitoring.
The new multiviewer is fully integrated with the Sirius router – no outputs or redundant crosspoints are sacrificed. It supports up to 12 4K screens with 48 sources, and in addition to video, audio and metadata monitoring, includes high quality streaming outputs as well as browse outputs for desktop monitoring. Processing delay through the multiviewer is minimal, making it suitable for both live production applications and playout or infrastructure environments.
As well as regular signal monitoring, the Sirius multiviewer also supports SAM’s Media Biometrics media analysis and reporting technology. Media Biometrics technology brings human-quality intelligence to monitoring, but goes way beyond human capabilities by comparing analyzes of media streams and reporting issues within just seconds. It also integrates fully with SAM’s other Media Biometrics-enabled systems, including ICE, Kahuna and IQ Modular to provide system-wide intelligent monitoring and reporting.
“The new integrated multiviewer for our Sirius routers includes capabilities well beyond other multiviewers,” said Alan Smith, SAM Product Manager. “Sirius is the most powerful and flexible router on the market with unique capabilities such as AHP (Advanced Hybrid Processing) which make it a highly cost-effective choice for mission-critical routing applications; the new integrated multiviewer adds another level of intelligence which further enhances operator confidence.”The Sirius integrated multiviewer will be available early in 2016.
