Crystal Vision brings video processing solutions to Stand L400 at MPTS 2022

Crystal Vision will be exhibiting at the Media Production & Technology Show in London for the first time when it heads to Olympia for the UK broadcast industry reunion on 11th and 12th May 2022. Stand L400 will be showing the company’s latest best-of-breed video processing software apps for the MARBLE media processor hardware, all of which can work with IP, with SDI or with both IP and SDI at the same time. The functionality offered by these apps – which support ST 2022, ST 2110 video and 31 different SDI standards including 1080p – includes chroma keying, linear keying, video delay, profanity delay, colour correction, legalising, picture-in-picture and fail-safe switching. This support for multiple signal formats gives the easiest possible SDI to IP upgrade, while also making the apps perfect for mixed SDI and IP installations as well as fully IP or fully SDI environments. Crystal Vision will also be discussing how the software-based MARBLE platform makes it easy to create custom products to solve problems using SDI or IP video.

Visitors to the London show with an interest in graphics will be able to have demonstrations of three keyer software apps, ideal for virtual studio, channel branding and graphic overlay applications. Features shared by these keyers include the ability to work with both IP and SDI (or a mixture of both), full synchronisation with multiple reference source options including PTP and flexible monitoring and control options. The M-SAFIRE chroma keyer offers Crystal Vision’s best picture quality to date, with a noise-free key as well as numerous tools to optimise the picture including advanced clip processing, colour correction, edge shrink, colour spill processing, lighting compensation and shadow processing. Two quad split multiviewers facilitate the M-SAFIRE setup by allowing four of the processing stage signals to be viewed simultaneously along with the ability to zoom into any area. The M-KEY is a traditional linear keyer which can key one externally-generated graphic over a video stream or a matte. For those seeking to save money along with an easier workflow, the unique M-WEBKEY web page keyer can key a web page on to an IP or SDI video stream – using the power of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, AJAX, XML and JSON to add still and animated on-screen text and graphics as well as sophisticated data-driven graphics.

Crystal Vision will also be showing the rest of its IP/SDI video processing apps at MPTS 2022 including the M-PIP picture-in-picture device, M-VIVID video delays, M-CLEANIT profanity delay, M-COCO-2 colour corrector and M-SAFESWITCH-2 fail-safe routing switch. Visitors who care about audio will be interested in the new per channel audio monitoring feature recently added to all the MARBLE software apps which makes it easy for a broadcaster to detect problems with their audio channels. This new feature makes it possible to monitor for audio group present, channels within the audio group present and channels within the audio group present but silent on embedded SDI and ST 2022 inputs.

Crystal Vision is the company that people come to when they have specialised processing needs and the company has a history of creating products for its UK customers, such as the Q-Down down converters. Stand L400 will therefore also provide the opportunity for Crystal Vision to discuss with visitors how the MARBLE platform can be used to create custom products to solve their specific problems using SDI or IP video. An advantage of MARBLE being a software-based platform is that the functionality from different apps can easily be combined to produce new apps.

Based at Whittlesford near Cambridge in the UK and providing a full range of interface and keyers, Crystal Vision helps people transition through a range of technologies – from SD to HD and from HD to IP. BCS Bureau
