draco multiview 4K60

Display of up to four Single-Head video signals on one monitor.


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.
