It joins the single channel model, CARBON 1080p 60 player, in Alcorn McBride’s CARBON product line.

CARBON supports many of the easy-to-use, flexible control features that come standard with Alcorn McBride products, such as Playlisting, Ethernet, Serial and GPIO. Features include frame-accurate video synchronization, quad 3G HD-SDI and Quad HDMI output, and genlock input.
