Calibre UK to debut upgraded switcher/scalers at InfoComm 2013

Company maintains competitive edge by making ‘under the hood’ improvements to LEDView530 and HQView530

Calibre UK returns to InfoComm 2013 with significant updates to two of its most important products for the pro-AV marketplace: the LEDView530 and HQView 530 switcher/scalers.

Both products were launched earlier this year, with the former being aimed at the control of large-scale LED screens in rental and fixed-installation applications, and the latter being designed specifically to multiple-projector setups.

They have already found a loyal following among rental companies and AV systems integrators, and now Calibre UK has increased their appeal by maintaining its policy of continually updating its products during their lifetime.

Tim Brooksbank, Chairman, Calibre UK, explains: “We’ve given both the LEDView530 and the HQView530 a number of new features that really set them apart from the competition. These include the ability to capture an input feed to save as a custom test pattern, for display as a customer logo screen or as a backdrop when no live signal is being displayed. Both products can scale this saved image and will geometrically correct, warp, rotate and blend it like a live input, something our key competitors can’t achieve!

“Users can also now choose whether PTZ is applied globally to all input signals or is automatically saved and recalled per input channel per signal mode – a very powerful function for performing per-mode adjustments to aspect ratio.

“We have also enhanced the color calibration options with the ability to set R, G, B gains and bias (black level) per input channel and the ability to set saturation and hue per input channel, per mode. Unlike many competing products, these functions are available for all input channels including DVI, HDMI and 3G-SDI.

“Finally, both products have been given new ‘blue’ easy-to-read dimmable front-panel menu displays, with fast navigation via jog-wheel as well as buttons for direct input selection.”

In addition to being included as standard on all new inventory, all the above new features with the exception of the updated front-panel are available as free firmware upgrades for existing customers.

“We’re celebrating 25 years in business this year and customer service has always been one of our top priorities,” adds Brooksbank. “We always enjoy exhibiting at InfoComm and getting the chance to put the results of our intensive R&D effort in front of the pro-AV community. This year will, I’m sure, be no exception!”

Calibre UK will exhibit on Booth 4481 at InfoComm 13 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL, from 12-14 June 2013.
