The 1RU 4-Channel Platinum Predator II-GX Multiviewer from Imagine Communications is an expandable, dual-head, auto-sensing HD multiviewer. It is designed for HD control and monitoring. This unit features auto-sensing support for multiple input standards and has ancillary data decoding capabilities. It has 4 video inputs and low processing delay. The unit's integrated UMD decoding and display, as well as several tally style options, make identifying and highlighting sources easily customizable. It also features embedded audio monitoring, video loss, video freeze, black picture, caption loss, audio loss, silence or over-level, and auto-sensing support for composite/HD/SD inputs. The Platinum Predator II-GX supports a range of input standards and includes on video display of D-VITC information.

The Platinum Predator II-GX architecture allows you to expand the input capacity by adding processing cards (sold separately) to match future increase in monitoring needs. The Platinum Predator II-GX multiviewer is capable of driving two independent displays. Its compact design and easy setup make it ideal for SNG and flycase applications. By using a single Platinum router (sold separately), up to 512 sources can be fed to up to 64 Platinum Predator II-GX systems. Source and destination names can be extracted from the router for display with the video, while Z-Configurator software allows the user to dynamically switch router sources, offering the ability to pull any router source to any PIP.
