The LI-4SD 4 Input SD-SDI Multiviewer with Looping Inputs (1RU) from Apantac accepts 4 SD-SDI or analog composite video as inputs with looping output. Its platform displays multiple auto-detecting video inputs at different formats on a high-resolution display up to resolutions of 2048 x 1080. The Tahoma Platform combines the display of video windows, audio meters, label/UMD, tallies, alarms, and indicators in a very space-efficient package. It supports auto-detection of HDMI and DVI.
