Tally and Remote Control

HDQLINE Displays integrate easily with existing Tally systems and controllers. Dynamic and Static UMD / Tally support is provided via Ethernet network protocols (sonoVTS IMD / TALLY protocol / Image Video / TSL / Ember+) or up to 8 GPI contact closures, each GPI is individual configurable. In addition, an optional hardware control panel is available.


HDQLINE displays can display a variety of additional information needed by professionals. This includes up to 16 Channel Audio Level Meters (AES / EBU / BBC / Nordic scales), static and dynamic UMD, Timecode (VITC) display, TV Standard display, two independent timers, clocks (Locked to external NTP), a WSS indicator and a Dolby Signal Indicator. Furthermore, various markers can be used, e.g. for aspect ratio, safe area and center. In addition to norm settings according to SMPTE and EBU specifications, each marker can be set manually. What’s more, users can also choose to display two safe area markers at the same time. The color, brightness, horizontal / vertical position, and width of any element can all be modified to your individual needs.

ST 2110 License (requires Universal I/O Expansion module)

This license enables receiving of professional media over IP streams according to SMPTE ST 2110.

TICO Decoder License (requires Universal I/O Expansion module)

Allows receiving of UHD pictures over a single 3G SDI channel. Key features are: visually lossless up to a compression ratio of 4:1, very short latency in the range of a few microseconds.

VC2 Decoder License (requires Universal I/O Expansion module)

Allows receiving of UHD content over a single 3G SDI channel.

DCS+ (Display Control Suite+) License

DCS+ is the graphical orientated, intuitive and user-friendly tool to control all parameters on individual displays as well as predefined groups of displays in a larger system like direction room or OB van. A complex display wall can easily be created by drag and drop display icons into your layout, either online (real time) or offline. DCS+ gives a perfect overview of the settings of each display.

Automatic Color Adjustment Match+ License

True and stable color reproduction under various conditions is essential for many applications. The newly developed Match+ plugin for DCS+, based on the experience of the renowned Color Calibration tools of hd2Line and QLine series, Match+ is the ultimate tool for automatic color space adjustment. Supports many professional spectro radiometer measurement kits like Minolta CS200, CS2000, Klein K-10 or Jeti specbos 1211, etc.

WFM License

Allows Waveform or Vectorscope type monitoring of the selected video input.
