Westar announces Video Combiner for 4K devices

Jul 21, 2015 | Press Releases

Saint Charles Missouri, July 21, 2015 – Westar Display Technologies, Inc. has introduced a new member of its popular EZwindow video combiner family, the EZwindow4K.

The EZwindow4K features a 4K input, plus 1 to 4 standard inputs. The 4K input is not re-timed or re-sized. It is mapped to either the foreground or background layer for video combining. The unit’s output timing is defined by the 4K input, with minimal video latency. The standard inputs can be placed in various window locations within the 4K foreground or background layer. Some limitations exist in window locations. Please contact Westar to discuss your application.

The 4K I/O is 4x Single Link DVI on the standard model. Optional mezzanine cards support DisplayPort and HDMI. The standard inputs are compatible with RGBHV, DVI, NTSC/PAL, RS-343, and other video types.

The EZwindow4K is ideal for combining HUD imagery with the OTW scenery in 4K projector applications. The EZwindow4K is also applicable for combining multiple video streams into 4K TV’s. All inputs are mapped to either the foreground or the background layer. All keying is performed on the foreground layer. RGB key, HSV key, alpha blend, and other combining techniques are supported.

EZwindow4K deliveries commence in September 2015.
