GREEN AND YELLOW GO 4K LYNX TECHNIK AG
Building on its worldwide reputation for no-compromise German design, manufacture and support, LYNX Technik presents a range of yellobriks® and the already multi-award winning greenMachine® titan, the customer configurable ‘Super Brik’ modular ar processing platform for 4K/UHD broadcast dcast and professional AV signal processing.
12G-4K/UHD POWERFUL AND FLEXIBLE MULTI-PURPOSE PROCESSESSING PLATFORM
The greenMachine® titan hardware has been designed for 4K/UHD requirements. nts. The hardware is a powerful processing platform for video, audio and metadata that can perform many different functions using one of the available greenMachine constellations (configurations). 4K (12G SDI) constellations (pre-configured application sets) for greenMachine® include; static and dynamic HDR < > SDR conversion, audio embedding/de-embedding including MADI and DolbyE®, video and colour adjustment, frame syncronisation, up/down/cross conversion, ROI scaling and audio/video test signal generation.
The functionality of the greenMachine® can be simply switched by deploying a different constellation and assigning a license via the free greenGUI control software. The perpetual licenses can also be moved between machines making them ideal for reconfigurable OB and fly away system applications.
All constellations include NOVA, an SNMP v2 interface, and Custom Control which enables the creation of stripped down customised user interface panels for operational use.
greenMachine® titan processes either four individual 3G/HD/SD- SDI video streams or a single 12G SDI video stream carried on a coax 12G single-link, or coax quad-link 4K (4x 3G 2SI). In addition, fibre SFP options are available for one 3G/ HD/SD- SDI and one 12G 4K/UHD input and output. The 12G (up to 3840 x 2160 @60 Hz) processing supports conversion between any input and any output format including up/down conversion of 12G-4K/ UHD.
greenMachine® is the ideal reconfigurable ‘toolbox’ for studios, OBs, fly-away and remote production and other media facility that require 4K/UHD AV signal processing, or are currently working in 3G and are looking for a cost-effective software upgrade to 12G in future.
4K FORMAT CONVERSION
LYNX Technik’s yellobrik® model CQS 1441 provides a bridge between 4K UHD quadlink (2SI) devices and 12G SDI single-link devices. Conversion modes include: 12G SDI single link to 4x 3G Quad link (2SI); 4x 3G Quad link (2SI) to 12G SDI single link; 6G SDI single link to 4x 1.5G SDI and 4x 1.5G SDI to 6G SDI single link. The integrated SFP fibre port allows for optional TX, RX and TRansceiver SFPs to provide
conversion to and from 12G fibre and loopthrough configurations for local feeds or monitoring.
12G 4K/UHD DISTRIBUTION AMPLIFIERS
A line of yellobrik® re-clocking coax distribution amplifiers for up to 12G 4K/UHD allow users to input any signal, whether SD/ HD/3G or 12G SDI and feed multiple reclocked outputs to devices across a facility. Two future proof models are available, 1>7 and dual 1>3.
12G 4K/UHD HDMI MONITORING
Full 12G 4K/UHD can be expensive and unnecessary if only confidence monitoring is required. LYNX Technik’s PMV 1841 QuadSplit yellobrik® is a compact, portable processor with an integrated down converter, for applications that require low cost, reduced resolution confidence monitoring of 4K/UHD 12G, SQD quad-link streams on an HDMI display at 1080i resolution.
In addition, it supports the display of four individual 3G/HD/SDI- SDI inputs on a single HDMI monitor (1080i full screen). The PMV 1841 allows the selection and display of waveforms, vectorscope, embedded audio level metres, safe area / centre markers, time code, video standard, video and audio alarms and up to 16 characters of free text for each input channel. The size and position of the four video panes and the required monitoring elements is user selectable. 3G/HD/SD- SDI channels can be viewed either as 4 quadrants on the monitor or toggled through 4 individual full screen views.
Its compact size and affordable price combined with the advanced overlay features makes this an ideal solution for studio, outside broadcast, production and post-production monitoring requirements.
12G 4K/UHD FIBRE TRANSPORT
The LYNX Technik yellobrik® 4K fibre transport solutions solve the problem of transporting real-time, uncompressed 4K 12G/UHD with virtually zero signal attenuation, over distances up to 20km.
The single 12G coax transmitter model offers a coaxial loop-through in addition to the fibre output. The fibre receiver provide two 12G coax outputs and the transceiver has one coax to fibre input and one fibre to coax output. Single wavelength and CWDM multiplexing SFP options have a range of up to 10km.
For the transport of either 12G on 4x3G coax format (2SI or SQD) or four discrete 3G signals, the OTR 1441 and 1442 offer a single box (at each end) solution. The four inputs are first internally converted to fibre, then multiplexed into a single LC fibre. The receiver module de-multiplexes the individual streams and converts them to four 3G coax outputs. The 3G channels can be independent, or the quad feed of 12G 4K/ UHD in 2SI or SQD. Modules may be ‘daisychained’ to transport either 8x 3G or 2x 4K/ UHD over a single fibre.
The O TR 1442 may also be combined with yellobrik® bi-directional transceivers to add Ethernet or RS232/RS422/RS485 signals to the multi 3G or 4K/UHD fibre link.
12G 4K/UHD FIBRE BI-DIRECTIONAL TRANSPORT WITH SYNC, AUDIO AND SERIAL DATA
For more complex situations the greenMachine® Bi-Directional Quad Transport system offers simultaneous point to point, bi-directional connection of 4K/UHD plus external audio, HDMI, GPI/RS-serial data and sync over a single pair of fibres. Two greenMachines are required and both can accept 4K/UHD on a single 12G coax or 4x 3G coax (2SI). The receiving element of each greenMachine can be configured to provide either 12G coax or 4x 3G (2SI) outputs. The Quad transport can alternatively carry four discrete 3G/HD/SDI- SDI channels in each direction, or 4K in one direction and 4x 3G/HD/SDI- SDI in the other, making it an ideal starting point in a 3G environment with a simple switch to 4k/ UHD in the future.
All yellobriks® and greenMachines® come with the intuitive free of charge, userfriendly yelloGUI or greenGUI software which offers users access to all advanced settings and adjustments within the units. Rackframes for greenMachine® and yellowbriks® offer a neat mounting solution and redundant power options.
