IQLDK30 3G/HD/SD Logo Inserter & Keyer

The IQLDK30 provides a flexible and cost-effective linear or luma keying solution ideal for 3G/HD/SD live production and playout applications. With other key features including logos, clock and text crawl insertion, the IQLDK30 delivers space savings by including other common branding elements on a single card.

The unit is capable of adding any combination of up to six animated or static 10-bit color logos into the SDI stream at any point within 4:2:2 boundaries of the active picture. Keyer and logo control is via RollCall, GPI, RollTrack triggers or SNMP, allowing the IQLDK30 to easily interface with external systems. Logos can be efficiently downloaded over TCP/IP network via...

FEATURES

Keyer
  • Linear and luma keyer with full level of opacity and mix controls
  • 2x background, fill, and key inputs
  • Dedicated program output, and two independently selectable auxiliary outputs, showing preview, program, program pre-fade, background 1&2 (clean feed), fill, key, processed key and pattern (black, color bars) signals
  • Cut to black, cut to program and fade to black or on program output controls available with adjustable duration
  • Self-key capability using fill input to provide key signal
  • Key opacity control (0-50%)
  • Optional digital clock with NTP or internal timing, and two independent crawl layers with local text insertion or file upload
Logo Inserter
  • 6 internal key layers for static or animated logos providing start, stop, pause and loop actions
  • Each layer offers independent transition timers and mix, fade, take and combined fade/take options with smooth control of transparency, fade in/out time. Includes controls for background color and object position on per layer basis
  • 32 GB on-board logo storage support, with dedicated large 1 GB active video memory for long animated sequences

  • Video and alpha-channel processing at 10 bits to 4:2:2:4 resolution
General
  • 32x user memories and 32x display memories e.g., logo position and keyer settings
  • Ancillary data can be passed from the background inputs, fill inputs or blanked
  • Local Ethernet port for direct control and logo upload via standard web browser including RollCall and SNMP for remote C&M
  • 8x GPIO ports configured for control or tally output (logo & key on/off) with keyer and logo control (cut in/out, smooth fade up/down and memories (user & display actions) via GPIO interface
