tvONE Introduces New CORIOmatrix mini
As a result of the overwhelming success of the small form factor, CORIOmaster mini video wall processor, tvONE is excited to announce the launch of the CORIOmatrix mini. The new, 1 RU, routing switcher is more than just a matrix router. It’s a 12-port scaler, format converter, audio router and HDBaseT extender all in one unit. The C3-310, CORIOmatrix mini is unique in that it uses modular hardware with 5 (or 16 with the larger 4 RU, C3-340) AV module slots that offer a wide mix of top-quality signal management options. In addition to the introduction of the CORIOmatrix mini also comes a completely new web interface which is accessible by using the latest versions of IE, Chrome and Firefox web browsers.
“In today’s world, A/V installations and BYOD environments demand total flexibility. Every day installers are faced with displays and projectors of varying ages, sizes, connection limitations and aspect ratios, and these all need to be fed by an equally diverse selection of sources,” said, Andy Fliss, Director of Marketing, tvONE. “The CORIOmatrix mini is a reliable source for any room system that has diverse inputs and outputs. It is a small 1RU non-squared matrix router that can scale and convert nearly any signal source to any signal output requirement.”
The CORIOmatrix mini is based on tvONE’s exclusive CORIO®2 technology and provides high quality, modular video matrix switching using firmware-based video routing, switching & video conversion platform. There are 5 AV universal module slots available. The module type determines the signal format as well as the number of I/O’s. The CORIOmatrix mini automatically recognizes the inserted module type and whether it is an input or output connection. This allows the user considerable flexibility in configuring the unit with their own individual video I/O requirements. The CORIOmatrix mini’s modular approach allow integrators the freedom to specify this product in almost any presentation room environment and to accommodate most I/O variables. Modules can be added or changed as needed.
The CORIOmatrix mini also provides Up, Down and Cross conversion between a variety of analog and digital video formats. Once input all video is processed, routed and scaled at a high 24-bit RGB 4:4:4 full bandwidth sampling rate to ensure crisp, clear images, faithfully reproduced in high resolution color. Pixel level motion adaptive, and diagonal interpolation ensures high quality de-interlacing of PAL, NTSC and 1080i signals. 3:2 Pulldown ensures proper 24 fps film extraction from NTSC and 1080i sources. All video signal parameters can be customized, adjusted and stored in non-volatile memory. All video sources can be viewed simultaneously on one display via the optional Monitor Output card. The CORIOmatrix mini has the ability to embed and de-embed audio signals from video sources while routing. An optional Audio module enables D/A conversion. Housed in a 1RU rackmount case the unit features an optional, redundant, factory fitted, internal PSU and power inlet. All the functions can be controlled via the web user interface, RS-232 or IP.
