LYNX Technik AG announced that its highly anticipated greenMachine titan platform with 12G processing for 4K/UHD productions in broadcast as well as professional AV and industrial signal processing applications, is now shipping worldwide.
greenMachine titan adds 12G signal processing, helping users facilitate and move toward a 4K/UHD infrastructure. Titan, a four-channel hardware device, provides 12G processing as well as the ability to convert between single link 4K video (12G) and quad-link 4K video (4x3G). For the signal processing functionality required for 4K/UHD productions, greenMachine users now have additional APPs to support a 4K workflow. These APPs include: frame synchronization, embedding / de-embedding and up/down/cross conversion.
As the broadcast and AV industries shift towards technologies such as UHD, HDR, virtual reality and transition from SDI to IP, the requirements for signal processing continues to play a key role in facility infrastructures. LYNX Technik products provide a software-defined approach to the way signal processing functions can be accomplished. Users can configure and customize greenMachine hardware by downloading APPs from the greenStore for functionality.
The “brains” behind greenMachine is the greenGUI software, which has been designed to revolutionize the way greenMachine signal processing systems are visualized, configured and controlled. Plus, it’s complimentary to all greenMachine users. A free and fully functional version is available for download from Lynx greenGUI software, complete with a simulated universe of greenMachines for users who want to test the software.
One of the key advantages of greenMachine is scalability as an app-based processing platform. LYNX Technik said this makes it a future-proof investment for broadcasters to grow with evolving video and audio standards. New standards and compatible devices will no longer require a new piece of hardware, but simply an exchange or adding an updated or new application.
