TV One releases New Input Expansion Switchers for CORIO2 products

These new additions ensure the user can tailor their system to their needs

MARGATE, KENT, 25TH January 2007 - TV One is dedicated to providing products that can satisfy any need and with the new S2 -Series of Input Expansion Switchers, TV One comes ever closer to providing the ultimate technology for every system requirement.


This new range of Input Expansion Switchers is designed to work in conjunction with any C2 -1000, C2 -2000 and C2 -7000 series Video Scaler/Seamless Switcher to provide additional inputs of a wide variety of signal types from standard video to PC, DVI and HD -SDI. An S2 model can be connected to a C2 Scaler's rear panel via an interconnect cable and become fully integrated into the control system of the C2 Scaler supplying up to 10 additional inputs of Stereo Audio (balanced or unbalanced), Composite Video, S -Video, DVI, RGB / YPbPr / YUV and HD -SDI

Users are not restricted to just one Input Expansion Switcher; multiple S2 models may be interfaced to a single C2 Scaler, providing additional inputs for each input type available on the Scaler. When multiple S2 models are used, the Windows Control Panel recognized the C2 Scaler and all the connected Input Expansion Switchers as a single Multi -format Seamless Switcher.

This fully customizable approach enables the user to choose an appropriate C2 Scaler and corresponding S2 Input Expansion Switchers to tailor the system to meet their individual requirement. S2 -Series models are available with or without Stereo Audio and there is also an additional Stereo Audio (with delay) model within this product range.

As well as providing additional inputs to the C2 series of Video Scalers/Seamless Switchers, these high -performance units can also operate as stand alone video and audio switchers. Input selection is by front panel push buttons, IR remote control or via RS -232 and because these desktop units are also available with single or dual rackmount options, these versatile products can fit into any space.

Because the S2 -Series is firmware based like all CORIO2 products, new firmware can be uploaded quickly and easily at no extra cost to the user. This means that a model which is several years old can be upgraded to the same advanced level as a brand new version of that same model.

See the S2 -Series on demonstration and display at ISE 2007 on TV One's stand A70.
