Up to 50 frames and 50 logos can be stored in the device’s memory bank. Layers, including frames and logos, can be controlled individually in time and transition, and can be fully resized.
Ascender 48 can be controlled through the Web RCS, an intuitive Web-based Remote Control specifically designed for the LiveCore™ platform.
It can also be easily controlled through the Vertige™ Remote Control Console, or through AMX and Crestron 2 or 3-Series systems thanks to a full package of drivers available on www.analogway.com.
Vertige™ - Premium Remote Controller for large Events/Multi-venues
The Vertige™ (Ref. VRC300) is a Premium Remote Console designed to control Analog Way’s latest generations of Mixers/Seamless Switchers. The controller presents a large operations panel of 510mm depth and 740mm wide (20”x29.2”), including a large 16/9 TFT color touch screen, and a variety of direct keys, contextual buttons, sliders, knobs as well as a joystick and T-Bar to operate the console.
To ensure optimum efficiency, the Vertige™ is based on “screen” management: each Mixer’s output can be managed independently and considered as one screen. Operators can quickly organize and manage their screens as wanted. For example, a layer can be changed simultaneously on all screens within seconds. Advanced combinations can be performed and saved for later use.
Vertige™ will be demonstrated controlling the Ascender 48 during LDI 2014.
