Quartz Premieres Xenon At IBCMulti-format router accepts plug-in Signal Processing Technology modules (July 28, 2004)
Quartz announced their IBC product lineup today. IBC04 marks the European launch of Xenon the Signal Processing Router. Xenon is an advanced multi-format router designed to accept plug-in Signal Processing Technology modules, which bring external hardware functions into the router. The latest addition to the SPT module range, an advanced quad split generator will be unveiled at the show
The latest new features added to the Quartz Master Control range will be on display, including advanced new audio capabilities in the QMC-HD. QMC-HD is the first master control switcher to support 16 channels of audio processing and internal Dolby E decoding and encoding.
IBC04 will be the first time Quartz has demonstrated high definition routing and master control in Europe, responding to rapidly growing interest in HD in the area this year.
The existing ranges of products will also be displayed, including the Q256 range of large format routers and the SC1000 advanced system controller.
Quartz will be in the same location as last year - Stand No: 9.441.
