MultiLogo V132 8G

Specs

MECHANICAL

Standard Crystal Vision module 266mm x 100mm

Weight: 200g

Power consumption: 12.5 Watts

OPERATING SYSTEM

MultiLogo runs the uCLinux operating system

VIDEO AND AUDIO STORE

Non-volatile multi-port internal store for pre-prepared still or animated graphics and audio files

Internal store is duplicated in DRAM and Flash

8 GB store for up to 500 graphics

DRAM store has six video output streams. Flash store is used to preserve all video and audio data when the board is powered down

DRAM store has six video output streams and two audio output streams. Flash store is used to preserve all video and audio data when the board is powered down, with data then copied to RAM on power up

MultiLogo can read six and write two images at once

All three keying layers can be used while graphics are being transferred to the MultiLogo board

VIDEO INPUT

One HD or SD input (for main programme)

Sections of the live HD or SD input can be recorded. Number of frames to be recorded can be selected and whether to record fill only, key only or fill and key. Mask controls can be used to reduce the recorded picture size to the area of interest only. All six RAM video players remain fully operational during recording

270Mb/s or 1.5Gb/s serial compliant to EBU 3267-E, SMPTE 259 and SMPTE 292-1

HD cable equalisation up to 140m with Belden 1694A or equivalent (approx. 100m with Belden 8281). SD cable equalisation >250m Belden 8281 or equivalent

Input return loss: -15dB for 50MHz to 1.5GHz

Auto 50/59.94Hz and video format selection

Input to output embedded audio processing delay: 4 lines

ANALOGUE REFERENCE AND DELAY THROUGH BOARD

The output can be locked to an SD Black & Burst or HD tri-level syncs analogue reference

Each input has a one-line TBC to align the input signal timing

SD delay: 6.5us min - one line plus 6.5us max

HD delay: 1.7us min - one line plus 1.7us max

Output timing can be from either an analogue reference or input 1, with a user offset of up to one video line. When locked to an analogue reference, the relative timing will be 0.0us plus any user set delay. Using input 1 as the reference source will give the minimum delay plus any user set delay

VIDEO OUTPUTS

One HD or SD Program output and one HD or SD Preview output using RM52 frame rear module, or RM52 + RM33 rear modules together if ML-GPI8 add-on board is fitted

Relay bypass protection of the input to the main output

Serial output: 270Mb/s or 1.5Gb/s serial compliant to EBU 3267-E, SMPTE 259 and SMPTE 292-1. In auto mode MultiLogo will default to outputting either the input standard or the external reference standard. When the output required is HD and the reference is HD Black and Burst, MultiLogo can be forced to cross-lock as long as the output format selected and external reference share the same frame rate. The output video standard can be fixed so that the MultiLogo can be powered without input and used as a standalone video source

KEYING

Three keyers can independently bring up three graphics and associated keys from the internal or external sources

Graphics can either have separate key signal or be self-keyed (options are Self Key, Split Key and Full Key)

Key processing can be additive or multiplicative

The three keyers have separate gain, offset, opacity and inversion controls

Key fade control to fade graphics in and out

Fade to Black

Program, Preview and keys can be set as black or as a colour from the matte generator

User-definable rectangular mask available to hide unwanted areas of graphic (with left, right, top and bottom adjustable sliders)

PLAYING OUT GRAPHICS

The supported file types are BMP, JPG, TGA, PNG, SGI and WAV (32, 44.1 and 48kHz PCM audio). Other file formats can be converted to the required MultiLogo format using the included Image Converter program and then transferred from a PC to the board using the MultiLogo Control Software

The position of the graphics on the screen can be controlled

The animation controls set the way the selected multi-frame video files are played out and are Play, Pause, Stop, Normal, Loop and Bounce

Recorded video clips can be easily trimmed: go through clip frame by frame using Previous and Next controls and select Mark in and Mark out points. The clip will then run from the new Mark in and Mark out points and can be either trimmed to permanently remove the unwanted sections or cancelled to return to the original

For animated 'split keying', outputs can be locked together to ensure fill and key signals play out at the same time and are same screen position

LOOK-AHEAD PREVIEW

Preview output can be used to preview the next state and the transition to that state before it is applied to the Program output. After the logos and keys are set up on the Preview output, the full transition can be previewed on this output. The proper transition can then be applied by using the Cut button (immediate) or Auto button (up to 1024 frames), or by pulling down the relevant GPI. By the end of the transition the contents of the Preview and Program outputs will have swapped over

QUICK TEXT

Simple text insertion feature which is part of the MultiLogo Control Software

Allows operator to type in text for internal use or simple text graphic, and then convert the text to a graphic format which is saved in the Flash on the MultiLogo board. The text will need to use one of the key layers to be displayed

Can be used with an unlimited number of characters and any available Windows font

Text box background can be any 24 bit colour and can be sized up to full screen 1080p

Text defaults to centre alignment

Type \n to put text on a new line

AUDIO

MultiLogo can embed up to 16 channels (eight stereo pairs) of audio into four groups on its output video. Audio routing of the individual channels allows selection of which of the possible sources are embedded. Audio cannot be shuffled between the embedded input and output

The background audio can be sourced from up to four groups of audio embedded in the video input

Up to two audio clips such as a voiceover or sound effect can be sourced from 32kHz, 44.1kHz or 48kHz sampled PCM WAV files held in two audio stores on MultiLogo

Audio mixing allows the output audio to be generated from a mix of the background audio and voiceover/sound effect clips

The background audio can be partially or fully dipped between 0% and 100% allowing it to be either mixed with or be replaced by the voiceover/sound effect clips. Dipping automatically begins as soon as an audio player starts or when the external AES input passes a threshold level. If multiple voiceover/sound effect clips are enabled, the background signal will be dipped to the lowest level set. A value of zero means the background audio will be fully faded out during the voiceover

The voiceover/sound effect clips can be faded in and out independently, either manually or automatically. A fade in and fade out auto transition rate can be set between 1ms and 5000ms

The voiceover/sound effect clips can have their level adjusted between 0% and 100%

Audio can be played out separately, or audio and video ports can be locked together so files can be played out at the same time allowing a graphic or animation to have accompanying audio

Audio player controls are: Play, Stop, Pause, Normal (play once), Loop (play continuously), Lock to RAM (follow selected video store), Unlock, and Dolby E (select if audio recorded as Dolby E; this will then disable audio level control and fading). The audio player controls are inactive when an audio file is locked to a video port

Audio can be set to fade to silence during a Fade to black. The fade rate can be set between 1ms and 5000ms

ANCILLARY DATA

Ancillary data can be taken from the input

Ancillary data can be passed directly from the input to the outputs

PRESETS

Up to 256 presets can be stored and recalled from the MultiLogo Control Software or GPI. MultiLogo V132 8G can recall up to 16 presets by GPI

Presets store the current state of the MultiLogo including which files have been assigned to the RAM memory, the position of the keys and the key gain settings

Partial presets allow the user to select the individual parameters that are to be saved and then recalled

Select whether a preset plays a clip or transition, or simply cues it

Identifying text can be assigned to each numbered preset

State of MultiLogo after power up can be saved using Save Power On control and recalled using Recall Power On control

The Preset Import/Export feature allows settings to be easily copied from one board to another. Using the MultiLogo Control Software, either all presets or an individual preset can be imported/exported. Presets can also be deleted. The current control state of the board is always saved and exported with the presets. The presets are copied to a file on the PC, and this file can then be downloaded to another MultiLogo, giving the same controls and presets as the original

GPI INPUTS

Four GPI inputs

The four GPIs can be toggled between recalling presets and transition control, providing extremely flexible GPI control of each key level and making complicated effects from any mixer or automation system easy

When transition control is chosen, each GPI can be individually selected to control key layers 1, 2 and 3, start any of the video and audio players or do a mix between Program and Preview, allowing the three graphics to be faded up or down independently

Active: pull to ground, pulled up to +5V through 10 kohm

Works with pulse or latching GPI levels

GPI OUTPUTS

One GPI output

The GPI output acts as a tally to indicate whether key layer 1 is faded up

Other GPI output connection is used to control the bypass relay

Electrically: Open collector transistors 30V, 270 ohm current limit resistors. Pulled up to +5V through 6800 ohm

ADDITIONAL GPIS WITH THE ML-GPI8 ADD-ON

The ML-GPI8 add-on board provides additional eight GPI inputs for recalling the first eight presets and eight GPI outputs which act as a tally and show which of the eight presets was recalled most recently via the GPI input

Makes MultiLogo V132 8G a ‘double decker’ board which uses two frame slots. The 16 GPI connections are accessed through the 26-way high density D-Type on the RM33 frame rear module which is used in combination with the standard RM52

100Mbit Ethernet connectivity from the graphics PC straight into the video store on the board, via the RJ45 connector on the RM52 rear module, for easy transfer of images and audio files

MultiLogo Control Software is included on a CD with MultiLogo and allows advanced control of the logo keyer

MultiLogo Control Software stores a list of IP addresses at which any MultiLogos can be found, with the user able to easily change the control from one logo keyer to another by selecting from the list

Basic control from integrated control panel on AE frames and remote panel

Statesman Lite allows basic control from any PC on a network

VisionWeb Control is available via the web server on the frame and allows basic operation using a standard web browser on a PC or tablet

SNMP monitoring and control available as a frame option

Industry standard protocols help MultiLogo to work with automation systems. Second serial port (link select instead of GPI inputs) allows connection to automation systems and video mixers

Crystal Vision's ASCII protocol can be easily implemented for simple button box type control

RM52 frame rear module includes a dedicated RJ45 connector for RS422 control
