Analog Way Unveils Midra 4K Series

Analog Way unveils New Midra 4K series presentation switchers.

Analog Way announces the launch of its new range of powerful 4K60 multi-layer video mixers and seamless presentation switchers, the Midra 4K series.

Ideally tailored to small/medium-sized fixed installations and live environments, the new series offers the highest reliability, the lowest latency, unrivaled ease of use, optimal image quality and state-of-the-art live 4K processing features. The range includes four products: QuickVu 4K, QuickMatrix 4K, Pulse 4K and Eikos 4K.

The Midra 4K series presentation switchers feature ten inputs, including eight 4K60 inputs (four HDMI 2.0, two 12G-SDI and two DisplayPort 1.2) and two 1080p inputs with user-selectable HDMI and SDI connectors. They also have two 4K60 outputs, each with mirrored HDMI and SDI connectors. Depending on the product, these two outputs can be combined to create a dual-output edge-blended display or configured as two independent Program outputs or one Program output and one Auxiliary output. In all cases, a dedicated multiviewer with resizable widgets is available to monitor the Program & Preview screens and all the connected sources.

Based on the extremely robust and reliable Midra 4K platform as well as on Analog Way’s 5th generation scaling engine inherited from the LivePremier™ presentation systems, the Midra 4K series features ultra-low latency 4K60 10-bit 4:4:4 image processing, genlock synchronisation, uncompromising video quality, true seamless switching, HDR support and HDCP 2.2 compatibility.

The Midra 4K series presentation switchers offer dozens of powerful functionalities to produce stunning AV presentations: custom output formats, areas of interest (AOI), Luma and Chroma keying and advanced video effects, to name a few. They come standard with the ability to easily de-embed or embed digital audio on all the inputs and outputs. An option is also available to add support for Dante audio networking.

The Midra 4K series presentation switchers are designed to be entirely operated from the easy-to-use front panel keyboard and graphic display. Ease of setup and flawless control of the presentations are ensured by the unmatched, on-board intuitive Web RCS, an HTML5-based user interface with live source thumbnails.

All products in the range feature Ethernet control via a standard TCP/IP socket connection supported by all major third-party control systems. They can also be controlled by the free Crestron driver as well as by AW VideoCompositor, Analog Way’s unique drag and drop customisable Crestron user interface praised by System Integrations experts around the world. Additionally, they can be operated by a comprehensive range of remote control panel options such as the powerful event controller RC400T or the compact Control Box2 and Shot Box2.
