Only from Calibre UK: the industry’s most powerful LEDView530 switcher/scaler releases new firmware

Robust, accurate and powerful PIP functionality puts Calibre UK ahead of the curve for scaling and switching of LED displays

Calibre UK has further strengthened its LEDView530 scaler/switcher with the addition of new firmware for user selectable and variable picture-in-picture (PIP) flexibility.

“The new PIP function of the LEDView530 scaler/switcher adds the functionality of expensive windowing solutions available from other manufacturers in the market today, but at an affordable price,” explains Tim Brooksbank, Chairman at Calibre UK.

PIP is used for the composition of a single displayed image comprised of background content plus a second windowed input channel, viewed on one single LED videowall. Typically the background content will be computer generated. The LEDView530 supports virtually all sources including Mac and PC and the PIP content is a video feed either direct from a camera or via a vision mixer, typically over 3G or HD-SDI.

“The firmware update is considerably important for smaller installs requiring variable PIP sizes and backgrounds, particularly at smaller facilities such as sports grounds where it gives LEDView530 a significant advantage in allowing users to generate a combined image, with advanced features such as pixel-accurate PIP sizing and PIP fade in/out transitions,” adds Brooksbank.

Significantly, LEDVIew530’s PIP is inserted within the defined output pixel area, so once the overall picture size has been set to suit the LED videowall using Calibre UK’s class-leading per-edge-based left/right/top/bottom sizing mechanism ensuring the PIP is automatically sized proportionately within that defined LED videowall pixel area. This advanced processing makes it very fast & simple to adjust the LEDView530 scaler/switcher for virtually any LED videowall.

“Variable PIP size can be used as a main background, so that a display showing a sports event plus scoreboard or advertising data can be composed. An event may be shown in the top portion of the screen with data below and to the right, or either side of that live image.”

The new firmware for the LEDView530 scaler/switcher is available now. Existing users can take advantage of the firmware update immediately by downloading the update free from www.calibreuk.com.

The LEDView530 was demonstrated integrated with Lighthouse Technologies’ X3 modular 3mm LED screen at InfoComm 13, the largest annual event of the audiovisual communications industry.
