AXONâ€™s modular infrastructure and communications system Synapse was enhanced with a dual background input 3Gb/s, HD, SD downstream keyer: the GDK100.
This module has 4 triple rate (SD, HD, 3Gb/s) inputs: 2 background inputs, 1 fill input and 1 key input. It also has 4 triple rate outputs: 2 program outputs, 1 preview output and a user definable output (program, preview or modified key output). Depending on the connector panel you have either Ethernet (for easy and fast card upgrading) or GPI control (over RJ45).
â€¢ 2 selectable background inputs
â€¢ Key input
â€¢ Fill input
â€¢ Self key
â€¢ The 4th output can be software configured for any output task: program, preview or
modified key output.
â€¢ Adjustable slice level and transparency (with definable modified key monitor output)
â€¢ Preview output for content verification prior to go on air
â€¢ Transparent for 16 channels of embedded audio
â€¢ Transparent for all ANC data
As with most of the new Synapse modules the keyer is also available in a SD or HD/SD version which both can be future upgraded to handle 3GB/s.
â€œThe GDK100 can be used as a downstream keyer for external logo generated keying and other graphical overlay keyingâ€?, says Peter Schut AXONâ€™s CTO. â€œThis is the first step into a full modular based Master Control / Branding systemâ€?
