Visionary’s MV4 is a high performance IP Multiviewer with integrated scaling and multi-windowing technology.
The MV4 IP Multiviewer is a 1RU rack-mountable windowing appliance that connects to a network and accepts up to (4) AV over IP streams from PacketAV Matrix Series ultra-low latency 4K encoders. The MV4 is designed for processing these dynamically switchable input streams simultaneously in a variety of layouts. Each input can be scaled and positioned according to default presets (such as quad view, side-by-side, Full, PiP, PaP, 3+1, etc.) or in any user-defined configuration.
With the MV4, users can mix and match input resolutions, scale any video input up to 4K UHD and route any input to any window, combining up to four sources together into a single 4K image. The combined output video is then encoded into a single stream sent to one or more PacketAV Matrix Series Decoders at resolutions up to 4K. Multiple MV4’s can be cascaded to provide 7×1, 10×1, 13×1, 16×1 or higher capability.
The MV4 IP Multiviewer enables users to select audio from any of the four sources for playback — even one not currently displayed. Seamless switching ensures no frame loss during window and video transitions. Both 1080p60 (HD) and 4K (UHD) inputs can be displayed without downscaling, taking full advantage of the MV4 IP Multiviewer’s remarkable image processing.
MV4 presents a paradigm shift in traditional multi-windowing technology that has until now required a separate HDMI multiviewer at each display. This flexible and scalable method of IP distributed multi-windowing allows the MV4 to be centrally located mounted in an MDF rack or anywhere else on the network, expanding capabilities while reducing installation and maintenance costs.
The MV4 IP Multiviewer is controllable via the front panel buttons along with an intuitive on-screen (OSD) Graphical User Interface, simplifying system configuration. Third-party control is supported via an API.
Visionary’s MV4 IP Multiviewer is an ideal solution for small and large commercial venues that require monitoring or display of multiple sources simultaneously. From the conference room to the control room, to the classroom, the versatile MV4 represents the next evolution in IP Multiviewer technology.
