Playout 4C1

Product Description

4 multicamera output HD-SDI; part of the WMT Multicam products

The WMT playout portfolio make it possible to receive live video from any WMT system using broadband internet networks  The WMT outputs consist of 19 inch 1U or 2U high systems with two Ethernet connections providing next to video input also video output or video return.

The WMT decoders connect to the internet with just a single Ethernet connection. When the correct ports are forwarded in the firewall the signals of a WMT will come in and turned into a video signal. This video signal will exit the WMT decoders through a SDI video connection with embedded audio.

The systems supports both DHCP and ­fixed IP number confi­guration via the front LCD panel. The management interface is WEB based and makes it possible to confi­gure maximum bitrate, video resolution and delay. Also the IP con­figuration can be done via the web interface. This package includes a service providing access to the LinkMatrix where it is possible to manage and administer the terminal and connections to other WMT terminals.

The 4C1 decoder is a 2U rack unit. It has 4 audio inputs and outputs for intercom to overcome separate de-embedding. The 4C1 has 4 times HD-SDI outputs with embedded 8 audio channels of which 4-8 is the return audio from the intercom.


Manage & Control
