DIGITAL UPDATE sponsored news Christie Terra adds to its 4K capabilities
Christie has introduced new products to help customers leverage the benefits of the Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SD- VoE) Alliance. This promises a standardised approach to maximize the scale, scope and user-experience of AV-over-IP system architecture and performance. Christie Terra solutions enable the design and integration of SDVoE-compliant systems. Built on standardised SDVoE technology, Christie Terra solutions support video formats up to 4K at 60Hz, transporting and pro- cessing uncompressed, zero-frame latency, artefact-free video over affordable 10G Ethernet components. As part of a Terra solu- tion, the Christie Terra Transmitter processes audiovisual sources and control signals and transports uncompressed, zero-frame latency,
artefact-free content over 10G Ethernet networks.
The Christie Terra Receiver accepts the audiovisual data and control from the 10G Ethernet network and supplies it to displays or other AV devices. The Christie Terra Con- troller provides complete operational con- trol and management for the streamlined installation, configuration, programming and upgrading of Christie Terra systems.
Christie Terra offers: • Zero-frame latency • Uncompressed AV processing • Broad video resolution (up to 4K@60Hz) • Complete AV and control connectivity (support includes video, audio, RS-232, IR control, Gigabit Ethernet and USB)
