The MV-4200 3G/HD/SD/Analog/HDMI/DVI/RGBHV Mixed High Resolution Multiviewer from For.A comes with eight 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs and four 3G/HD-SDI and four HDMI outputs.

The modular design of this 2RU multiviewer allows you to expand the total inputs to up to 68 analog or 8 analog and 24 DVI inputs by adding separately available input cards. The MV-4200SDI card has twenty 3G/HD/SD-SDI analog composite inputs and up to 3 of these can be added to the MV-4200. With three MV-4200HDMI cards installed (each with eight DVI inputs), you get a total of 4 3G/HD/SD-SDI and 24 DVI inputs. HDMI sources can be connected via separately sold DVI-to-HDMI adapters.

In addition, the MV-4200IF Interface Card (available separately) can be added for GPIO, serial control, and input of analog audio, AES audio, and genlock. The MV-4200 Multiviewer offers a customizable window layout, audio level meters, and AFD-compatible cropping functionality.

Layout Manager
  • A Windows based application is provided for managing and creating screen layouts
  • Customize the layout on a computer by registering or changing layout patterns, adjusting title displays, and configuring other settings as needed
  • Store up to 48 layout patterns on the viewer
  • Saved layouts can be applied directly from the front panel control
Video Streaming
  • In addition to computer-based layout management, you can stream video from the viewer over Ethernet
  • The streaming video can be used for additional local computer displays or for remote monitoring applications
Record Streamed Video
  • Frames before and after errors or after specified triggers (video loss, frozen frames, incorrect luminance/black levels, CRC errors, audio loss, silence, and excessive audio levels) are captured and can be saved to a Windows computer as a sequence of still image files
Versatile Mixed-Source Environment
  • Supports mixed signals as required, from 3G-SDI (Level-A/B), HD-SDI, SD-SDI, analog composite, HDMI, DVI, or RGBHV sources
  • Asynchronous input is also supported
  • Accepts an array of formats and frame rates including NTSC, PAL, 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, and 23.98/24/25/29.97/30 P or PsF (no frame rate conversion)
HD Output of Source Signals
  • Features up to 8 output channels
  • Sources can be displayed on 1 or 2 screens, each with HDMI and SDI interfaces available for HD monitoring support
Audio Level Monitoring
  • 16 channels of embedded audio levels in each 3G/HD/SD-SDI or HDMI signal can be monitored
  • Use Layout Manager to customize display positions, number of channels, and display groups
Audio Monitoring Output
  • Audio from any channel can be monitored via HD-SDI, HDMI, or analog audio output
Prominent Error Display
  • Indicates errors by full-screen display, flashing border, error icon, or error message
  • Prominently identifies the relevant frame
  • Tally: Choose from frame tally or marker tally display
  • Titles: Identify each source channel with a title. Supports display of alphanumeric characters, symbols, and Korean characters (up to 16), which can be displayed within or outside the picture
  • Timecode: Ancillary timecode in 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals can be displayed
  • Safety Area: Can be displayed for each channel
Time and Timer Display
  • Supports clock time synchronization with the SNTP server
  • Up to 4 clocks can be displayed, along with date, in analog or digital format
  • Data display is also available
  • This feature can be also used as a count up/down timer, or remaining time counter.
Logo and Background
  • Registers up to 8 logos and 4 background images
