Apantac Showcases New Cost-Effective Mi-16 Multiviewer Family at InfoComm 2016

Apantac, provider of multiviewers, video walls, extenders, and signal processing solutions is showcasing Mi-16, its new family of cost-effective 3G/HD/SD-SDI Video Multiviewers at InfoComm 2016, booth N2313. Mi-16 was first shown and demonstrated to the public at NAB 2016.

“Our new Mi-16 range of Multiviewers is packed full of features typically only found in a $15,000 Multiviewer system, yet starts as low as $2,250,” comments Thomas Tang, President of Apantac. “The Mi-16 is an ideal choice for facilities that require a full-featured Multiviewer solution, yet are cost conscious.”

There are three models in this new family, which all share the technology that was developed from the award winning TAHOMA Multiviewer family. Key features include:

  • Low latency – single frame delay
  • Low power consumption – uses only 15W of power
  • Windows can be sized and moved freely
  • Passive loop outs - never lose your source, even if the multiviewer is turned off.
  • Analog and digital clocks, up and down timers
  • Static and dynamic UMD, tally
  • 32 GPI/O for tally, counters and alarms.
  • Video and audio alarms
  • Safe area markers
  • Decoding 16 channels of embedded audio displayed as meters
  • On screen displays – borders, labels, text, logos
  • Optional redundant power supply

Three models that will be demonstrated at InfoComm are:

  • Mi-16 – 16x1 Multiviewer:                
    • 16 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs with passive loop-outs and HDMI and SDI output
  • Mi-16+ (plus) – Single or Dual Output Multiviewer (16x1 OR 8+8)
    • 16 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs passive loop-outs and dual outputs (each independent output supports display of eight inputs)
  • Mi-16# (sharp) – Dual Output Multiviewer (16x2)
    • 16 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs with dual outputs. Each input can be resized and duplicated up to 16 times and can be assigned to both outputs. Each independent output can display up to 16 windows.

The Mi-16 family of cost-effective Multiviewers offers a large set of features in a small footprint (1 RU wide and 10” long) and uses very low power (15W). They are ideal for fly pack, mobile production studios as well as government and house of worship applications
