Tally and Remote Control

HDQLINE Displays integrate easily with existing Tally systems and con- trollers. 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.

Tally and Remote Control

HDQLINE monitors 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.


Universal I/O Expansion Module

This plugin board adds multiple IN- and OUTPUTS to the HDQLINE display platform and therefore increases the flexibility, the number of possible applications for this new family of professional monitors. Among them are 2x 10GigE SMPTE 2022 Video-over-IP (up to 4 channels each) interfaces and 2x 12G SDI single link UHD interfaces.

The list of options includes:

- 2 independent 10GigE SMPTE 2022-5/6 Video-over-IP interfaces
- 2 x 2 x 3G SDI input / output
- 2 x 12G SDI input
- 2 x 3G SDI input / output
- 1 GigE

- 2 x Fiber (SFP modules)
- 2 x Dual Coax / Fiber (SFP modules)
- 2 x HD BNC
- 2 x HD BNC
- RJ 45, LAN Stream, Monitoring

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.

The list of options includes:

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

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 1201, etc.

WFM License

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