TVOne C3-450 CorioMaster

Posted by in TVOne | September 12, 2012

C3-540 CORIO®master offers a new, more efficient approach to building video systems.

Using TV One’s latest CORIO®3 technology, it gives the user access to new levels of video processing power to achieve new heights of creative and dynamic video displays. All this is possible in one 4RU chassis.

CORIO®3 video processing technology allows the use of layouts which define where each output is used. Outputs can be grouped together or individually and can be independently rotated through 360° in real-time, without adding additional delay, for use in creative video wall applications. Projectors can be used off axis with brightness controls to aid in an even distribution of the projected image. Warping controls allow for projection on curved screens. Multiple layouts can be used at the same time or one layout can be designed to tie multiple projectors or monitors together as one large image. Up to 4 layouts can be used simultaneously.

Edge blending, monitor walls and multiple projectors can show any combination of inputs by setting up video canvases to design each layout. Multiple canvases can be used at the same time to define multiple layouts to aid in choreographing a video design. To further assist functionality, multiple windows can be used to design a canvas with the capability to resize and rotate 360° each window on the canvas which is then sent to the predefined layout. Canvases can be duplicated on a number of layouts to permit display in more than one area or used for status display on one monitor of the entire canvas.

The user of the CORIOmaster can dedicate one layout as a multi-viewer to monitor the inputs to aid in previewing the sources during live events or used as a status monitor in various types of installations.

Control of the CORIOmaster is provided by a multiplatform software package that provides an intuitive way of setting up layouts and defining the video canvas to be used for each layout. Presets can be saved and recalled. Changes can be made to the canvas and then transferred to the layout.

The flexibility to use various input formats and the ability to up, down, and cross covert those signals on the outputs of the CORIOmaster to various displays and projectors of any format allow for easy installation without the use of multiple pieces of equipment to accomplish the same task all accomplished in a 4RU chassis.

The CORIOmaster is high power in its capabilities, but low in its power consumption. It typically requires only 150 watts, fully loaded. A traditional video system that performs the same task can consume up to ten times as much energy. Over its life, that is a lot of savings.

Physical Properties
The C3-540 has 16 Universal AV Module slots available and the CORIOmaster automatically recognizes the modules inserted as either input or output modules. This flexibility allows end user configurations to be based on their own needs. Additional DVI-U or 3G-SDI modules can be added later in unused slots when powered up they will be made available to the user.

CORIOmaster also provides independent Up, Down and Cross conversion for every output between a variety of analog and digital video formats thru 3G-SDI and WUXGA. The modules selected determine what format will be accommodated and the inputs and outputs available. Signal parameters of the incoming video may be adjusted. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off.

User defined presets are also available to customize settings for various applications. Separate third party control using the built in command line interface switches seamlessly between presets.

All the functions can be controlled via serial connection via RS-232/422/485, USB or IP. A front panel LCD option makes direct setup easy. The unit is housed in a standard 4RU rackmount case and features an optional redundant hot swappable internal PSU and power inlet.

Advanced Features
The CORIOmaster includes high 4:4:4 full bandwidth sampling rate ensuring crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling ensures faithfully reproduced, high resolution colors.

Integral digital audio switching is provided to route audio from the DVI (HDMI-compatible) input or SDI input to the DVI and SDI outputs. This can also be controlled by the built in command line interface.

Software Control
The unit is provided with a multiplatform/multi language software package for simple intuitive control of the unit. Starting with the ability to set up the input and output signal requirements, the user is guided through the graphical interface in configuring the outputs into the layouts.

Once the system has been configured your visual artistic talents can be unleashed by positioning, sizing, stretching and rotating windows onto the canvases. Windows can be easily layered and overlapped and layer priority of each window can be easily changed. The canvases can be designed off-line and then checked and adjusted when connected to the unit.

By use of presets, the different arrangements of the windows can be recalled live by use of simple commands from third party controllers.

The DVI-U universal interface utilizes a single DVI-I connector to provide the following signal formats: HDMI, DVI-I, plus analog YUV, YPbPr, RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB. NTSC, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, SECAM standards are supported as Y/C and Composite Video. A variety of adapters are available to convert from DVI-I to other connectors.

DVI-U Modules
The system features the following types of modules for the inputs and outputs. All modules only use 1 AV Slot.

  • DVI-U Universal Input Module – 2 Inputs
  • DVI-U Universal Scaling Output Module – 2 Outputs

The high resolution DVI-U outputs are selectable at virtually any PC or HDTV resolution.

SDI Modules

  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI Input Module – 2 Inputs
  • HD/SD-SDI Input Module – 4 Inputs
  • 3G/HD/3G-SDI Output Scaling Module – 2 Outputs

Video Walls or Multi input Variation
The standard configuration permits up to 16 inputs (32 HDSDI) and 16 outputs. For use in Video Wall applications the unit can be ordered with between 2 and 8 inputs allowing the remaining slots to be dedicated to drive a multi monitor wall to a maximum of 28 screens.

Alternatively the unit can be ordered with between 4-8 outputs allowing the remaining slots for input cards to a maximum of 28 inputs (56 HD-SDI)

Data Modules
Tally Module – Uses 1 of 3 Data Slots Provided

Internal Memory
USB Access to Internal Micro SD Card located on CPU module via Rear Type B Connector

Future Modules
Additional types and formats of Video and Data Modules will be added in the future. Please check our websites for the latest list.
