TV One showed off the immense Edge Blending capabilities at a fraction of the cost when compared to other devices with the same features.
TV One showed off Edge Blending in a new light at InfoComm 2007.The TV One Edge Blending setup was built for around $30,000 making it tens of thousands less than anything on the market with the same capabilities. If the six projectors weren’t impressive enough the Edge Blending setup was also able to do PIP’s that were movable across all screens, full preview, keying and switching.
The entire setup consisted of one TV One C2-7100 which was feed to a distribution amplifier. This feed was then sent to six C2-2250’s which did the actual Edge Blending. The image was sent to six Eiki LC-XB40 XGA boardroom projectors and shown on a Stewart 96″w x 54″h screen, all of which retails for the modest price of $30,000.
“We really wanted to show everyone at InfoComm that they to can do an amazing Edge Blending display for a fraction of the cost,” said David Barnes, president, TV One. “We recognize that not everyone has a $100,000+ budget so we want them to know there is an alternative.”
TV One has a full lineup of products that will do Edge Blending consisting of several Dual and Single Channel Video Processors. The Dual Channel Video Processors which only requires one unit for a two edge blend are: the C2-7260, C2-7210 and C2-7110. The Single Channel Video Processors which require two for a two projector edge blend are: the C2-260 (PCI Card), C2-1250, C2-1350, C2-2250, C2-2255, C2-2350, C2-2355.
Multiple units capable of Edge Blending can be added for even more dramatic expansion. The possibilities are near limitless since images can be aligned vertically, horizontally or both to create unusual displays. TV One products are based on flexibility which is why Edge Blending is not limited to high resolution RGB computer images, but includes Composite Video, S-Video, YUV or YPbPr Component Video, SD-SDI, HD-SDI, DVI or any of the multiple formats supported by the various C2 models. Gamma correction is employed to compensate for many of the problems faced when doing edge blending between projectors.
