MILFORD, Conn., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Thinklogical, a leading provider of fiber optic KVM switching and extension solutions, has expanded its product portfolio with new high-definition video solutions specifically designed for the broadcast and post-production environments. The ImageEvolution product line includes a powerful video processing unit, designed for image correction and scaling, as well as video conversion and fiber video extension. In addition, the line currently features a new HDMI Repeater for distribution of one of two HDMI/DVI video sources to four displays (simultaneously). These products made their premier at this years NAB 2008 trade show in Las Vegas.

For image correction Thinklogical has harnessed the cutting edge technology of Gennum, using the award winning VXP(TM) image processor. This supplies a core platform for exceptional and enhanced image processing and quality. As a result, the ImageEvolution provides two flexible 30-bit digital video input ports supporting RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4 and YCbCr 4:2:2 interlaced and/or progressive sources up to a maximum pixel rate of 165MHz per port. Other key ImageEvolution processor features are mosquito noise reduction (MNR) and block artifact reduction (BAR) for minimizing artifacts introduced by compression systems, such as MPEG. Flexible signal or dual pixel digital video output at 8/10-bit RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4 and YCbCr 4:2:2 progressive up to a maximum pixel rate of 165MHz is also achievable. "Indeed, the ImageEvolution represents a significant achievement in high-performance, high-definition video processing. It really takes the video processor to a whole new level with the introduction of conversion and extension, which are important issues in the broadcast and post-production industries," comments Kevin Keefe, Director of Engineering. "This product is very unique and we anticipate this technology will meet the demands of the market and enable broadcast and post-production professionals to fully harness high-definition video." The ImageEvolution represents great strides in video technology with enhanced connectivity flexibility, with multi-mode fiber ports for video extension up to 1000 meters (3280 feet). This provides key integration with Thinklogical's line of fiber optic video extenders and switches, making the ImageEvolution a highly effective and scalable asset management system. In addition, it is capable of delivering true 1080i/p, without any frame or bit dropping and no degradation in video performance. In addition to the video processor the ImageEvolution line also features an HDMI Repeater. This sends one of two video sources (HDMI or DVI) to four digital display devices (LCD monitors, projectors and plasmas) simultaneously, with superb identical reproduction and without any signal loss. The ImageEvolution HDMI repeater supports high-definition protocols to insure maximum compatibility and signal encoding in order to maintain the highest HDMI single link video resolution and digital audio signal. The new ImageEvolution product line will be available for shipping July 15th, 2008. Demonstrations of the ImageEvolution products will take place at the IBC tradeshow, at the RAI Convention Centre (Hall 12P, Stand # A29) in Amsterdam, September, 12-16th 2008.
