ScreenPro II HD Switcher
ScreenPro II HD Controller
Controller to Talley Cable
Controller User Guide
This device adds flexibility and greater control to multi-screen and single screen events.
The controller enhances PIP and KEY placement, source switching, and layer control options during a presentation. The ScreenPRO-II Controller includes access to 36 presets, available to the operator at a touch of a button. Preset recalls include items such as sources, layer functions and transition effects simplifying the control of single screen or multi-screen events.
The controller also allows for remote switching of the MatrixPRO routers encasing the total flexibility and capacity of the presentation system. The controller works with up to 16 inputs, any mixture of RGBHV analog signals and SDI/ HDSDI, DVI signals, from both external routers and the built in routers of the ScreenPRO II.
The ScreenPRO II controller is available with a tally and a PS2 Keyboard card. The tally card triggers tally lights on Camera CCU units or other devices. The PS/2 Port allows for a PS/2 keyboard to be connected simplifying setup functions.
Combined with the ScreenPRO-II Processors and a BlendPRO-II, the ScreenPRO-II Controller can manage blended screens up to 4 projectors wide. In addition, the controller can manage four auxillary outputs when used with an external router. If needed, the ScreenPRO-II controller can tie in ImagePRO processors to the AUX outputs so that all signals are scaled to a preset resolution and format.

Video switchers, also known as a video display controller (abbreviated to VDC) is essentially the key component of a video signal generator. This kind of vision mixer is used for generating a visual signal in computers, and in some cases an audio signal too, although this is just a secondary function. The video switcher first made its appearance in our homes in the first types of home computers, such as the old Commodores and Spectrums, and is now an integral part of video signal generator logic. A video mixer cannot work alone however, as it needs support from various other parts of the computer to work. For example, pixel data is stored in the computerÔ??s RAM, while character fonts are held in the ROM. Therefore, the video switcher chip will usually be totally integrated into the main computer, and so users will be able to see the video RAM it gives in the CPUs memory map. It can also act as a co-processor that acts independently, although this is not usually the case. The video switcher is generally available in three different formats. Video shifters are the most basic type of production shifter, and take care of the video timing signals. These obtain data one byte at a time from the CPU, and use synchronization signals to produce a video signal. The CTRC video switcher reads data directly from the computerÔ??s RAM, and this is then outputted either through a ROM or directly. Far more complex are video interface controllers. This kind of video switcher supports sprites and video RAM which is dedicated towards color attributes, thus making extremely high-resolution images possible.
