Analog Way completes the Midra series with Eikos2 and Saphyr

 January 2014 – Analog Way is pleased to complete its Midra™ series of mid-range Mixers/Seamless Switchers with Eikos² and Saphyr. Both products will be exhibited in Analog Way’s booth #11-F58 during Integrated Systems Europe 2014, on February 4-6, in Amsterdam, NL. 

Eikos² (Ref.EKS550) and Saphyr (Ref.SPX450) offer diverse connectivity with 10 seamless inputs and 16 input plugs, including 4xDVI-D, 4xHDMI and 4x3G-SDI. The systems can operate fast and seamlessly switch between any of their 16 input plugs without fade through black or loss of sync. 
Both systems feature 2 outputs and a video output with digital and analog connectivity. A Mosaic Preview with 2 modes is available on both models, and EDID management is standard for all computer sources. 

Eikos² and Saphyr can be used in mixer or native matrix modes with different layering capabilities. In addition, Eikos² features a Quadravision mode to display up to 4 layers on a still background according to 12 different layouts. A Quick Frame function is available to place a foreground frame over all other layers when necessary. A simple button push allows return to the previous display. 
Both systems feature a variety of effects and transitions to animate layers. Eikos² delivers up to 34 seamless transitions, including circle, stretch and depth.

Digital audio can be easily embedded or de-embedded on HDMI and DVI-D connectors on inputs and outputs. For easy routing of audio signals, some functions such as Fast Routing and Audio Breakaway mode are available.

Eikos² and Saphyr can be controlled through the RK-350, a brand new Remote Keypad, or the RCS², a user-friendly and intuitive graphic interface designed for the Midra™ series. As an AIR application, the RCS² is compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux. It offers 3 main sections to setup and control the units: Setup, Edit and Live. 
To facilitate the ease of integration of the Midra™ series, Analog Way provides a full package of drivers for easy control through Crestron and AMX control systems.
