June 2015 - Analog Way is pleased to announce the addition of a powerful new true seamless presentation switcher to the LiveCore™ series, the NeXtage 08. The new system will be presented as a world debut during InfoComm US at Analog Way's booth# 1715, from June 17 to 19, in Orlando, US.


NeXtage 08 (ref. NXT0802) is a new high-end Seamless Switcher with dedicated live processing, designed with a rugged reinforced chassis and hardware for demanding live events. Equipped with 8 scalers, 8 seamless inputs and 2 main outputs, NeXtage 08 offers 28 input plugs: 4 x HDMI, 6 x DVI-D, 2 x DisplayPort, 8 x 3G-SDI and 8 x Universal Analog. With 2 independent seamless mix layers per output, as well as an independent Native Background layer included for Soft Edge Blending or individual screen modes, NeXtage 08 is an exciting tool to create impressive shows requiring two independently switched displays.

Switching between inputs is always true seamless, and the NeXtage 08 even allows for clean cut switching between connectors on a given input. The NeXtage 08 also offers unique connectivity through SDI SFP Cage on each output, compatible with most SFP modules on the market. The device can handle any source from composite video, up to 2560x1600 (DVI Dual-Link available). It also outputs a variety of formats, including HD-TV and Computer format up to 2560x1600. NeXtage 08 is available with full 4K resolution I/O as an optional feature. With this option, the device supports 3840x2160 (UHDTV) and 4096x2160 resolutions (native resolution for DCI-compliant 4K).
NeXtage 08 features a Full Preview with all layers viewable, as well as a customizable Live Source Mosaic Monitoring on an independent output. All sources and layers can be displayed in real time on the Program, the Preview and the Live Source Mosaic Monitoring output.

The 8 scalers ensure an easy, intuitive, and powerful experience with the NeXtage 08. The 2 seamless mix layers per output can be controlled individually in time and transition. All layers are completely customizable, meaning any source can be fully resized, resulting in limitless screen configurations. Up to 100 still pictures (frames or logos) can be stored easily in the NeXtage 08 memory via the Web RCS. These are all fully resizable and support all settings and transitions of the layers. A Native Background allows creative customization and addition of a third layer on either or both outputs.

The NeXtage 08 can be controlled directly from its front panel or using the Web RCS, an intuitive Web-based Remote Control Software specifically designed for the LiveCore™ series. For more demanding applications NeXtage 08 can be controlled via the Vertige™, a powerful Remote Console. To facilitate the ease of integration, NeXtage 08 can also be easily controlled through AMX and Crestron 2 or 3-Series systems thanks to a full package of drivers available on www.analogway.com. Additionally Android and iOS apps are available on the app stores.
