Our ScreenProII is configured with all the upgrade options available including (2)HD-SDI inputs as well as the E.O.C. card. This expanded output card adds output signals of HD-SDI, YRB component and 480i NTSC. Also the frame grab capacity increases from 3 frames stored onboard to 100 frames. For complete specs on these upgrades please see the following links.

ScreenPRO-II HD uses four image layers (Unscaled Background, up to two scaled PIPs or Keys, and an unscaled Downstream Key) to produce sophisticated effects, including transitioning backgrounds, transitioning PIPs, wipes, dissolves and keys.

Two inputs are scaled and mixed to provide mixing within a PIP (Picture-in-Picture) or, alternately, two independent PIPs or Keys displayed on a Background.  In addition, two unscaled high-resolution input channels provide seamlessly transitioning backgrounds, or alternately, a high resolution background and high resolution Downstream Key (DSK).  An internal 8X2 analog video router provides universal analog sources to each scaler channel.  In addition, up to two SD/HD SDI inputs are available for the scaled channels.

ScreenPRO-II HD supports input and output resolutions up to UXGA. High quality motion adaptive de-interlacing is performed on Standard Definition and High Definition video sources. ScreenPRO II features a low video processing delay of three input fields maximum.

ScreenPRO-II HD is packaged as a 3RU rack-mount unit.

Whats New on SPII v1.22.txt





Our SPII controller includes 8 tally contact closures. These tallies can be assigned to 8 discrete inputs or multiple inputs to 1 tally. Tally is provided via 25 pin D-sub connector on the rear of the controller. Communications between the controller and other Barco devices is handled over standard ethernet cable. The controller acts as DHCP server. The devices are networked via 10/100 switch and ethernet cable. The controller can be placed anywhere in a control room while only being tethered by a ethernet, 25 pin tally and power cables.

This device adds flexibility and greater control to multi-screen and single screen events.

The controller enhances PIP and KEY placement, source switching, and layer control options during a presentation. The ScreenPRO-II Controller includes access to 36 presets, available to the operator at a touch of a button. Preset recalls include items such as sources, layer functions and transition effects simplifying the control of single screen or multi-screen events.

The controller also allows for remote switching of the MatrixPRO routers encasing the total flexibility and capacity of the presentation system. The controller works with up to 16 inputs, any mixture of RGBHV analog signals and SDI/ HDSDI, DVI signals, from both external routers and the built in routers of the ScreenPRO II.

The ScreenPRO II controller is available with a tally and a PS2 Keyboard card. The tally card triggers tally lights on Camera CCU units or other devices. The PS/2 Port allows for a PS/2 keyboard to be connected simplifying setup functions.

Combined with the ScreenPRO-II Processors and a BlendPRO-II, the ScreenPRO-II Controller can manage blended screens up to 4 projectors wide. In addition, the controller can manage four auxillary outputs when used with an external router. If needed, the ScreenPRO-II controller can tie in ImagePRO processors to the AUX outputs so that all signals are scaled to a preset resolution and format.
