New multi-track video player offers up to 8 channels of HD video in 3 RU enclosure.
Alcorn McBride has introduced the Digital Binloop HD, a product that provides playback of up to eight HD video channels in only three rack units. Ideal for themed entertainment, museums, and other applications requiring high-resolution video playback, the Digital Binloop HD stores video on CompactFlash so it has no moving parts to wear out and handles video resolutions of 1080i, 720p, 480P/576P, or 480I/576I. The Digital Binloop HD outputs video via HDMI or HD-SDI (SMPTE-292M) with embedded audio. Analog video formats include component (YPbPr) or RGB, with composite Standard Definition monitor output; the unit can offer simultaneous SD and HD monitor outputs.
In addition to the unit’s HD video capabilities, the Digital Binloop HD also supports stereo audio along with Dolby® or DTS® bitstreams. It can also output networked audio via a CobraNetTM option. Any or all tracks can be synchronized with each other or with an external source. The unit can be controlled via SMPTE, RS-232, MIDI or Ethernet.
“The stunning video quality of HD will encourage rapid and widespread adoption of this format throughout the industry, ” said Alcorn McBride’s COO Jeremy Scheinberg. “The Digital Binloop HD, with its compact form factor and zero maintenance design, makes it easy for users to set up multiple channels of HD playback. This product will provide years of superb performance for a wide variety of HD applications.”
