Long Beach, CA, United States, 2008/08/18 - LYNX Technik AG, provider of intelligent interface products for the broadcast and professional audio & video industry, is using IBC 2008 as a launch pad for a significant new product range to complement their existing line.
LYNX Technik AG is using IBC 2008 as a launch pad for a significant new “attractively priced” product range to complement their existing line of broadcast modular products.
LYNX will debut their new Series 1000 MiniModules, a compact “brick” style line of utility interface products that are offered at an extremely low price point, while still offering broadcast-quality functionality. The Series 1000 complements LYNX’s existing Series 3000 MiniModules and 5000 CardModules, offering customers a vast range of functionality and price points.
The first in the Series 1000 to be introduced is the D VD 1606 module, a 3 GHz re-clocking digital video distribution amplifier. Offering a combination of flexibility and performance, the D VD 1606 supports one SDI video input and six outputs and handles data rates from 270 Mb/s to 3 GHz.
The D VD 1606 also features input signal presence detection. Plus, the whole Series 1000 modules are completely compatible with existing Series 3000 modules, including mounting hardware and power supplies.
“We are responding to market needs and requests for a very basic and more affordable modular processing solution,” comments Winfried Deckelmann, CEO of LYNX Technik AG. “Our new Series 1000 range is ideal for space-constrained applications that demand broadcast quality, yet only require a very basic level of functionality.”
With this new series of modular products, LYNX is continuing to grow their portfolio to clearly become one of the leading providers of HD processing products in the industry. This new introduction not only extends their offering, but offers broadcasters a choice when considering how to ease their transition to HDTV. This also presents great value to existing clients who are using standard definition and wish to upgrade existing systems to high definition.
Throughout 2008 and 2009, LYNX Technik will bring to market additional Series 1000 modules that are being designed to satisfy all of today’s most demanding digital Broadcast requirements and are being configured to meet the needs of a variety of levels of technical sophistication.
The LYNX range of signal processing equipment is versatile and reliable, has been rigorously tested, and has been proven to work in the most demanding of multi-format environments. Applications include; mobile vans (OB trucks), broadcast master control rooms, production studios, network operating centers, post production, video duplication facilities, and more.
The new LYNX module D VD 1606 3GHz re-clocking digital video distribution amplifier is priced very attractively and will be available in September, 2008.
