Product Information

The Draco MultiView 4K60 typically allows visualization scenarios common in air traffic control and control room applications, including 4:1 / 4:2 Single-Head or Dual-Head.
The individual screens can be arranged freely and displayed in diff erent modes:
Fullscreen Mode, Quadscreen Mode (Quad Mode), Picture-in-Picture Mode (PiP Mode), Preview Mode, 2+2 Mode and Free Mode. Presets allow instant switching between the desired layouts.

Easy Switching
Real-time switching between the video sources is done by keyboard commands. External control options are possible via API or the GPIO interface.

Don‘t miss any audio alerts
The embedded audio signals can be output to a loudspeaker via a separate audio interface. Either the audio track of the currently active screen can be output or the various audio signals can be combined (summed) so that relevant signal tones can be heard at any time, regardless of the source.

Fail-safe and space-saving
The Draco MultiView 4K60 has redundant power supply and extensive SNMP options for status monitoring (video, PSU and switching status). It is build for 24/7 operation.

The Draco MultiView 4K60 seamlessly integrates with Draco vario extenders and Draco tera matrices.

Typical Applications

Control Rooms
The ability to observe manage processes simultaneously is essential in modern control rooms. The MultiView 4K60 provides operators with the ability to control up to four processes on one workstation using single or dual screens, and just one keyboard and mouse.

Air Traffic Control, Air Traffic Management – ATC/ATM
Instant switching between different source devices with no delay, lag or visual artefacts means that flight controllers never lose the picture and maintain their vigil whatever the circumstance.

Boardrooms and conference rooms
The Multiview 4K60 offers a simple and secure solution to the need to select between several high quality input sources in group presentations and meetings. Coupled with a touch screen controller it provides a simple and intuitive system for corporate installations.

The fast paced and exacting requirements of the broadcast industry demand the highest image quality processing and switching along with instant response and reliable performance. The MultiView 4K60 delivers the ultimate in 4K image quality and switching between sources to keep producers, engineers and editors on top of the production process.
