Snell & Wilcox is expanding its IQ Modular line with 25 new components that deliver multi-use functionality in SD, HD, and hybrid television facilities. Being introduced at NAB2005 are new components - including converters, synchronizers, distribution amplifiers, routers, and audio modules - all capable of operating at SD and HD resolutions and all offering the capability of being used in multiple ways and in multiple configurations.
Another feature of the new IQ Modular products is improved signal handling and fidelity, resulting in very low return loss and the ability to equalize longer cable lengths securely. New IQ modules have built-in signal firewalls that ensure signals are not lost to mission-critical components. The signal firewall capability ensures that the output - whether video or audio - is continuous even when the input fails.
All IQ Modular products can be reconfigured without the need for a PC. Snell & Wilcox's Active Front Panel (IQHSBOX), which fits in a 1RU space, can manage full configuration, diagnostic, and operational control of all modules via a single coaxial cable using the company's RollCall network control and monitoring system.
