LYNX Technik Launches greenMachine callisto+ Hardware with Dual-Channel Up/Down/Cross Converter Configuration
May 12 2021 – Weiterstadt, Germany – LYNX Technik, provider of modular signal processing interfaces, announces its latest greenMachine general purpose hardware device, Callisto+. Callisto+ is 2x 3G capable and complements the existing greenMachine Titan hardware (4K capable) with the same feature set and performance. Callisto+ therefore provides users with a more cost-effective and entry level signal processing solution when 4K is not necessary or required.
greenMachine callisto+ hardware (model: GM 6825) includes input/output cross-point switching and distribution, an audio cross-bar for embedding/de-embedding SDI audio to and from sources & destinations, with support for analog, discrete or embedded AES and MADI audio. A Dolby E® decoder and a full metadata management tool are also included. HDMI in/outputs are provided and fiber interfaces for 3G HD-SDI and Gigabit Ethernet LAN control are available with optional SFPs. The hardware also offers an integrated color display and control panel for live image monitoring, audio meters, and status indicators. Plus, full remote control is available using the greenGUI software
Up/Down/Cross Conversation Configuration:
The first signal processing configuration available for callisto+ is GMC-2CUPXD, a broadcast-quality two channel 3G SDI up/down/cross converter, which can convert between SD, HD and 3G video formats. In addition to its conversion capabilities, the GMC-2CUPXD is considered fully featured in that it also includes a frame synchronizer, 3G scaler, de-interlacer with motion adaptive filtering, embedded metadata management, color correction for gain, lift and gamma adjustment, as well as various video adjustment features.
One of the unique features of the greenMachine platform is that users may purchase licenses for future configurations, without the need to purchase new hardware. Plus, unlicensed configurations can be deployed for testing and proof of system concept but will show watermarks at the outputs – a “try before you buy” opportunity. This adaptability and customization are the true unique and flexible heart of the greenMachine concept. Users have peace of mind that their hardware investment is safe now, and for the future.
