LYNX Technik’s greenMachine Callisto+ Hardware with Dual-Channel Up/Down/Cross Converter Configuration provides users with a more cost-effective and entry-level signal processing solution when 4K is not necessary or required. greenMachine Callisto+ hardware (model: GM 6825) includes input/output cross-point switching and distribution, an audio cross-bar for embedding/de-embedding SDI audio to and from sources & destinations, with support for analog, discrete or embedded AES and MADI audio. A Dolby E decoder and a full metadata management tool are also included. HDMI in/outputs are provided and fiber interfaces for 3G HD-SDI and Gigabit Ethernet LAN control are available with optional SFPs. The hardware also offers an integrated color display and control panel for live image monitoring, audio meters and status indicators. Plus, full remote control is available using the greenGUI software. The first signal processing configuration available for Callisto+ is GMC-2CUPXD, a broadcast-quality 2-channel 3G SDI up/down/cross converter, which can convert between SD, HD and 3G video formats.
