The Midra™ presentation switchers have been purposefully designed for live events and fixed installation applications requiring both reliability, ease-of-use, superior image quality, flexible connectivity and uncompromising multi-layer processing capabilities.
Midra™ presentation switchers
Flexibility and Versatile Connectivity
Today, staging technicians and system designers often face unpredictable video format and connectivity requirements as different presenters can use a wide range of input devices. The Midra™ series of presentation switchers feature up to 10 seamless inputs with up to 16 input connectors that support all popular digital and analog formats. They also feature up to two outputs with mirrored connectors that support most common video formats as well as custom resolutions. In addition, they include a 3G-SDI and analog outputs useable as video output or Program clone.
Simplified Integration with Direct HDBaseT™ Compatibility
The Pulse² - H and the Saphyr - H models have been designed using HDBaseT™ Alliance specifications, ensuring interoperability with other HDBaseT™ certified products. They feature up to four HDBaseT™ inputs with embedded audio, Ethernet and PoE+ remote device powering for two of them. They also include two HDBaseT™ outputs that can deliver digital video and embedded audio with Ethernet pass through plus bidirectional RS-232 and IR signals up to 492 feet (150 meters) over a shielded CAT 5e/6 cable directly to HDBaseT™ enabled displays. This allows reduced installation cost and even greater flexibility for your integration requirements
Uncompromising Video Quality and Advanced Processing Capabilities
Based on the extremely reliable and robust Midra™ platform, these presentation switchers offer ultra-low latency image processing, uncompromising video quality, true seamless switching, multi-layer video capabilities and advanced video effects for elegant AV presentations, which make them an ideal solution for live events and fixed installations.
The Midra™ switchers have been designed with innovative functionalities, including some advanced features inherited from the premium Analog Way video processors. They can display multiple live layers with background and foreground positions. Thanks to the Quick Frame function, a foreground frame can quickly hide all other layers when necessary. To fit any display resolution, including non-standard formats like LED walls, the presentation switchers manage custom output formats. They also include advanced management of audio to easily embed or de-embed digital audio on compatible connectors, ensuring better processing and quality of the video and audio mix. For easy routing of audio signals, some functions such as Fast Routing and Audio Breakaway are available.
Powerful and Flexible Control Options
The Midra™ presentation switchers can be entirely operated from the easy-to-use front panel. Each model can also be easily controlled using the intuitive drag & drop user software interface: the RCS2. They offer IP (Ethernet) control via a standard TCP/IP socket connection and an RS-232 serial interface supported by all major third-party control systems. Additionally, they can be controlled by a comprehensive range of remote control panel options such as the RK-350 keypad or the Shot Box².
