Analog Way announces Pulse²


October 2013 – Analog Way is excited to introduce Pulse², a new versatile Mixer / Native Matrix Switcher. Pulse² is based on Analog Way’s new Midra™ platform, the core of a brand new line of mid-range Mixers / Seamless Switchers. The Midra™ platform consists of 6 products: QuickVu, QuickMatriX, SmartMatriX², Saphyr, Eikos² and Pulse².

Analog Way is pleased to renew its line of mid-range Mixers Seamless Switchers with the Midra™ platform. Based on Midra™, the Pulse² offers a new design and innovative functionalities, including some advanced features inherited from the LiveCore™ series, Analog Way’s range of Premium Presentation Mixers.

A new architecture
Compared to the Pulse which was launched in 2009, the new Pulse² benefits from several major improvements, bringing the product to the next level. Pulse² comes in a 2RU enclosure with a deeper chassis, ensuring better air circulation and cooling of the device.
The product offers upgraded connectivity, through 8 seamless inputs and 14 input plugs: 4 x Universal Analog, 4 x DVI-D, 4 x HDMI and 2 x 3G-SDI plugs. Thanks to the CleanCut effect, the Pulse² can operate fast and seamlessly switch between any of its 14 input plugs without fade through black or loss of sync.
EDID management is now standard for inputs 1 through 6 for computer sources.
Pulse² features a matrix mode with 2 outputs. To fit any display resolution, including non-standard formats like LED walls and rear-projection cubes, Pulse² offers custom output format management.

Ultra-performing processing with smart functionalities
Thanks to optimized programming and a new architecture, the Pulse² offers Fast Seamless Switching, with a 50% speed gain in control parameter response. The de-interlacing process on the Pulse² was significantly improved, similar in quality to the process available on the LiveCore™ series.
Pulse²offers two frame layers, with background and foreground positions. Thanks to the new Quick Frame function, a foreground frame can quickly hide all other layers when necessary.
Preset management was also optimized, and the Pulse² offers smart functions such as Swap and Split. Available using hot keys, these functions allow users to switch between a PIP and a live background source (Swap), or the display of two PIPs side-by-side on a colored or frame background (Split).

Advanced audio management
Major new assets available on the Midra™ generation of Mixers Seamless Switchers also include advanced management of audio and embedded audio. The Pulse² can easily embed or de-embed digital audio on HDMI and DVI-D connectors on inputs and outputs, ensuring better processing and quality of the video and audio mix.
The signal to noise ratio was notably improved, and fine-tuning of the gain on analog signals can be easily made through a comprehensive audio section available on the machine user interface. Routing mode allows the audio of any input to be associated to any output.

A new user interface: the RCS²
The RCS² is a user-friendly graphic interface designed for the Midra™ platform, and inspired by the Web RCS of the LiveCore™ series.
As an AIR application, the RCS² is compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux. It offers 3 main sections to setup and control the Pulse²: Setup, Edit and Live.
The section to control audio signals includes the main elements of an audio console, including a potentiometer and a VU meter.
The Midra™ series can also be controlled by several Analog Way’s Remote Controllers, including Orchestra and Vertige (available 1st semester 2014).

All products based on the Midra™ platform received Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certification.
Analog Way’s new Pulse² will be demonstrated at several international tradeshows starting October 2013: InfoComm Middle East & Africa (United Arab Emirates – Booth #TA-115), Satis (France – Booth #D65) and LDI (United States of America – Booth #2231).
