Creating A Larger System Using Two 7 RU FramesBy using Kaleido-X’s mid-plane expansion module, two Kaleido-X (7 RU) frames can be connected to display up to 192 video inputs over up to 12 displays. This configuration provides easy system expansion without losing any of Kaleido-X’s extreme signal flexibility, due to the full interconnectivity of video, audio and metadata, as well as timecode and control signals.
Remote Control of Integrated Routing and Multiviewer SystemsIntegrated multiviewer and routing systems can be controlled using a choice of remote control panels. One simple option is to use a traditional router control panel to assign any source, anywhere, any number of times on the monitor wall. This mimics what the router would do to a traditional monitor wall, by allowing the user to assign any source to any destination. This type of control is available with the NVISION control panels, as well as third-party router control panels from Snell (Pro-bel) and Nevion.
Sophisticated Alarm DisplaysThe Kaleido-X offers very sophisticated alarm display elements, which are activated when video/audio, metadata or SNMP alarms are detected. Informative text and graphics alert operators at the monitor wall, with color coded on-screen alarm status indicators. These status indicators can be configured to latch the status, in case of sudden faults that cannot be intercepted by the operators. Acknowledgement mechanisms are available, with interaction by an on-screen mouse.
Superior Display Flexibility with Kaleido-XKaleido-X offers superior signal flexibility due to the system’s high bandwidth performance. This allows an operator to focus on the ideal monitoring configuration, without worrying about system limitations.
2,304 Audio Channels Per FrameKaleido-X offers exceptional audio performance, with the ability to monitor up to 2,304 channels of audio per 7 RU frame (1,536 embedded audio channels plus 768 discrete audio channels), including embedded, discrete AES or discrete analog.
Multiroom Production Monitoring with a Single MultiviewerKaleido-X offers highly effective, multiroom production monitoring, with fully independent display layouts and control panels in each room. The monitoring displays can be quickly reconfigured for different productions, with full flexibility over window positioning and sizing. The processor’s high quality multiviewer outputs also make it ideal for the most critical live monitoring applications.
Multichannel Playout Monitoring with a Single MultiviewerKaleido-X’s flexible architecture makes it highly suitable for multipod, playout monitoring applications. Each pod can have an independent display layout, with independent control using a dedicated remote panel. All sources can be shared across the pods, which allows easy pod layout changes to handle more or fewer channels, as commonly happens during night shifts with reduced operator crews.
Using Integral Router for MonitoringThe Kaleido-X system features built-in routing which eliminates the need for separate routing in control rooms, and provides a significant cost saving.
Router Integration: High Picture Counts Per DisplayKaleido-X offers rich integration with the NVISION router family, and third-party routers, to allow expansion up to 1,152 video inputs and 96 multiviewer outputs. Grass Valley’s Cluster Feature enables multiple multiviewers to behave like a single system from an operator’s perspective, with full layout flexibility.
