KVIEW: AN IDEAL COMPLEMENT FOR DISCRETE VIDEO MONITORING 11/07/2017
The preferred choice by some very highly-regarded customers in several European and Latin American countries
KROMA has been manufacturing and selling a large portfolio of discrete, broadcast-quality monitors since 1994, with sizes ranging from 4 to 9 inches for preview solutions, and 18, 24 and up to 46 inches for larger monitors. The SD, HG and 3G video input options have always been present in the whole family of products, as well as some advanced instrumentation features such as vector-scope, waveform monitors, vumeters and even phase-meters for each channel.
Recently, under the KROMA by AEQ brand, this range of solutions for discrete monitoring has incorporated two 4K models up to 12G, as well as a novel, proprietary multi-viewer solution named KVIEW.
KVIEW is a multi-viewer processing system based on standalone units which are very easy to use, ideal for high-quality signal monitoring in studios, mobile units and other outside broadcast scenarios. It counts on 8 x 3G/HD/SD-SDI auto-detecting inputs and a multi-view output (simultaneous DCI and 3G-SDI outputs). An external converter is not required in order to display the output on SDI and low-cost HDMI displays. KVIEW is a very compact unit, with half-width 1RU form factor. Up to 4 units can be cascaded in to combine 32 inputs onto a single display.
KROMA customers have welcomed the addition of this KVIEW multiscreen solution, as demonstrated by the quick deployment of many units in very diverse work scenarios. Among them you can find producers like Videoreport or Setemedia in Spain, public institutions such as Madrid Council or the Parliament Building -also in this country-, as well as Polish DTS, UnoTV’s central headquarters in Mexico, Televisa with its 22 new locations in Guadalajara (Mexico) which is starting DVB-T broadcasting there, as well as ClaroSport that used it during Brazilian Rio 2016 Olympics.
