The new version 1.4 of the Ascender 48 presented at ISE 2014 will offer several major improvements.
The link mode will provide the ability to link two units, with inputs and outputs shared and added. Units will then function as one impressive 24x8+2 Scaled Seamless Matrix system with 2 live Mosaic Previews, 84 input plugs, 100 frames, 100 logos and 96 scalers available.
Advanced layer management will ensure higher flexibility: when one output is disabled, its layers can be added to another output, resulting in up to 24 layers per output. 
Custom Monitoring will allow personalization of the Preview/Monitoring output. Up to 8 display templates for the monitoring output will be stored and easily recalled using the Web RCS

Ascender 48 will be controlled through the Web RCS, a user-friendly graphic interface enabling operators to fully prepare a show and control it live. Ascender 48 will also be demonstrated with the Shot Box, a new 76 keys pad with labeled commands for easy control of presets on the LiveCore™-based systems.
