Alta 4K is a new line of powerful multi-screen & multi-layer 4K60 presentation switchers and videowall processors designed to deliver high-end video presentation experiences for demanding live events and fixed installations.
Alta 4K presentation switchers
Alta 4K Presentation switchers
Alta 4K presentation switchers combine rugged design, class-leading video processing and image quality, HDR support, ultra-low latency, versatile 4K connectivity, livestreaming capabilities, and unmatched ease of use to meet the needs of the most challenging applications including live corporate meetings, hybrid events, worship productions, or large-scale LED video wall installations.
Versatile 4K connectivity
The Alta 4K presentation switchers offer up to sixteen inputs, including fourteen 4K60 inputs (eight HDMI 2.0, four DisplayPort 1.2 and two 12G-SDI) as well as two 1080p inputs with user selectable HDMI and SDI connectors. They feature also up to six independent 4K60 outputs, each with mirrored HDMI and SDI connectors. Four of these outputs are additionally equipped with SFP+ connectors compatible with Analog Way's fiber optic or ST2110 SFP modules. All Alta 4K products come also standard with a dedicated Multiviewer output to control all connected sources as well as Program & Preview screens.
Built for reliability
Based on an extremely robust and stable FPGA-based hardware platform, the Alta 4K series is ideal for the most demanding environments, from major live events to 24/7 permanent LED wall control. With the highest quality components selected for their proven reliability, optimized airflow management and a cleanable dust filter, the Alta 4K series is exceptionally quiet and offers reliable operation with maximized uptime and reduced maintenance. Complying with the latest international safety and environmental regulations, the Alta 4K presentation switchers meet all operating conditions for peace of mind.
Class-leading image processing
Like the award-winning LivePremier and Midra 4K products, the Alta 4K series is based on the class-leading Analog Way's 5th generation scaling engine, featuring ultra-low latency 4K60 10-bit 4:4:4 image processing, uncompromising video quality, and HDCP 2.2 compatibility. The 4K video outputs of the Alta 4K series can be freely configured as single screens, edge-blended widescreens or scaled auxiliary outputs, and each screen can be composed of a live background with native resolution and up to 8 live layers. The Alta 4K series also incorporates all Analog Way's latest innovations to meet the expectations of the most demanding customers, including advanced color correction with custom external 3D LUTs, real-time SDR/HDR conversion or high frame rate processing at up to 144 Hz.
The Alta 4K series offers all the advanced real-time video processing features you need to unleash your creative potential and deliver outstanding presentations that leave a lasting impression: true seamless switching on all layers, advanced borders, elegant transitions, alpha channel support, Luma and Chroma keying, custom output formats, AOI ... In addition, audio can also be easily de-embedded from the video sources, and re-embedded on the physical video outputs to be sent to a display or recording device. An option is also available to add support for Dante audio networking (32 channels). The Alta 4K series also offers a livestreaming functionality, allowing to stream any input or output to an online web service such like YouTube and Twitch.tv, or directly send the content to software like OBS Studio for recording or custom livestreaming.
Easy to control and integrate into your ecosystem
The Alta 4K series features an elegant and easy-to-learn HTML5-based user interface (Web RCS) designed to allow for the best ease of setup and to ensure flawless control of multi-screen presentations. The Web RCS offers unique features such as live source thumbnails and supports multi-operator collaboration. The Alta 4K presentation switchers can also be conveniently operated by a comprehensive range of control solutions from compact presets shot boxes to the powerful event controller RC400T, but also by many third-party solutions such as Companion or Universe. To ease the integration into a fixed installation, the Alta 4K series offers TCP/IP control via a standard Ethernet connection as well as free Crestron® and AMX drivers. And for even more advanced integration, Analog Way offers the unique VideoCompositor solution, which gives end customers easy access to the powerful video compositing capabilities of the Alta 4K video processors directly within any Crestron® application. Finally, a complete off-line simulator allows you to train yourself or to prepare your configuration and presets in advance. It also allows developers to implement and test their application or driver before having access to the Alta 4K switcher.
