UHD 4K Video Combiner - EZwindow4K

EZsplitter

4 Channel Video Splitter with Repeater

The EZsplitter™ splits video to multiple display heads, and/or converts a video feed into multiple formats. EZsplitter™ supports resolutions up to WUXGA and can process the following video formats on both the input and output: RS-343, RS-170, NTSC/PAL, STANAG, Component video, and DVI-I (TMDS and analog RGB)

Features

Z

Resolutions up to WUXGA

Supports up to 1920×1200 with pixel rates up to 162MHz

Z

Up to 4 output channels plus repeater

Configurable with up to 4 output boards. For applications requiring more than 4 outputs, the EZsplitter supplies a control and video repeater output for additional EZsplitters

Z

Independent output resolution and timing

Output resolution and timing is completely independent of input timings. User-definable area-of-interest (AOI) within each input and mapping of the AOI onto the output resolution

Applications

2×2, 3×1, and other single-input video walls

The EZsplitter is ideal for video wall applications using 1080p component displays. A single feed can be divided to multiple 1080p displays. View examples

Splitting a single IG channel into multiple display heads.

If your image generator is creating content for multiple display devices, the EZsplitter™ can separate out and re-format individual video windows within the stream to drive different displays. View examples

      Example Applications

      Convert to multiple formats

      A single video source is re-formatted into multiple video formats. For example, a single 1080P DVI video source can be output as a 1080P RGBHV, a downsized RS-343 875 line output, and a downsized NTSC output using a EZsplitter-AAA. In addition, the original 1080P source is available via the repeater output (DVI-D).

      Partition video to multiple displays

      A single video source is divided into multiple video streams, each with a programmable area-of-interest. For example, a single 1600×1200 DVI video source can be divided into (4) 800×600 SVGA (RGBHV) quadrants, using a EZsplitter-AAAA. In addition, the original 1600×1200 source is available via the repeater output. All the video and splitting functions are done in a 1U device, reducing extra cabling and rackspace!

      Video Wall Controller

      A single 1080P signal is intended to drive (3) adjacent portrait mounted TV’s to form a large video wall using a EZsplitter-BBB. Each Type B board is programmed to a specific area-of-interest within the input video stream. This area of interest is resized and rotated to create the required 1080P output for the wall of TV’s, in either HDMI or Component video format.

      Splitter plus

      A single 1920×1200 DVI video source needs to be split to (4) destinations, plus down-sized and converted to NTSC for a video recording function. A EZsplitter-ACCC will create the down-sized NTSC signal (A), plus the (3) C cards combined with the standard digital repeater output will create (4) 1920×1200 DVI outputs.

      Video converter for custom video type

      A EZsplitter can be a solution to convert standard video to your unique video type. Please contact Westar if you have a specific video format to be generated from a standard video format.

      Hybrid

      A single video source is divided into multiple video streams using two EZsplitters. For example, a single 1600×1200 DVI video source can be divided into (4) 800×600 SVGA (RGBHV) quadrants, using a EZsplitter-AAAA. In addition, the original 1600×1200 source video is output to another EZsplitter via the repeater output. The second EZsplitter-ABA can downsize the source video to NTSC for DVR recording, resize to 1080P for a large format HDTV (HDMI or Component), and output one of the quadrants to an RS-343 875 line specialty display.
