Profanity delay

Do you need to prevent expletives, obscene gestures, wardrobe malfunctions, bloopers, competitor mentions, coughing fits or technical problems from making it to air?

Colour correction

Whether you need to adjust the colours on in-shot plasma displays, set the range of colours for an encoder to transmit or correct computer-generated and post-production outputs, Crystal Vision provides a cost-effective and space-saving solution - with clever features not usually available at this price level

Synchronisation

Whether you need to synchronise incoming video signals not locked to your local reference or compensate for timing delays within your video system, Crystal Vision's extensive range of synchronisers will be perfect for the task

Video A to D conversion

Crystal Vision's A to D converters have been popular since the company began. The decoders are perfect for bringing sources generated by cameras, tape machines, DVD players and graphics generators into a digital environment.

Routing and switching

Crystal Vision offers a variety of 2 x 2 switches and small routers for 3Gb/s, HD and SD sources - products that broadcasters rely on to keep them on air. Use them as your emergency transmission switch if you need to avoid broken equipment or use them to manually bypass products requiring maintenance

Video delay

No one does the range of video delays that we do. They are ideal for use anywhere you need to match delays in your system - virtual studio graphics, MPEG encoders/decoders, satellite and HD radio links, audio processing and profanity delays.

Up and down conversion

Working with 3Gb/s, HD and SD sources, our up and down converters will give you the best quality at the best price - with extra features for that really tidy system design. No wonder, then, that they are our top-selling products.

Our audio distribution amplifiers will make the most of your rack space, with our quad channel analogue DAs and dual channel AES DAs.

Audio processing

If you need to alter your separate audio signals, the flexible ADP 310 can provide audio processing for multiple channels of analogue or digital audio.

Keying has always been one of Crystal Vision''s real strengths. Whether you need to chroma key, insert graphics, scale your pictures or create a wipe effect, we have a product to suit your application perfectly.

Crystal Vision offers a range of products that can resize and reposition video – ideal for picture-in-picture effects, squeezing the end credits to preview the next programme or squeezing a presenter to allow room for additional graphic material.

Logo and linear keying

You can insert any graphics on to video sources using our logo and linear keyers. Choose from products which include internal storage (the MultiLogos) or those that get their graphics via an external video input (the M-KEY, LKEY 3 and LKEY-SQZ) or via a web page (the M-WEBKEY).

Clip storage

Crystal Vision's clip stores are the most convenient way to add extra video sources to a mixer to enhance transitions, holding up to 60 seconds of moving HD video or 300 seconds of moving SD video.

Crystal Vision offers the most flexible video over IP. Our IP products are software apps that run on the MARBLE-V1 media processor – purpose-built GPU/CPU hardware that fits in the Vision frames.

SDI to IP conversion

Crystal Vision's IP gateways are the ideal products for integrating SDI into an IP environment.

IP to IP translation

Crystal Vision's unique IP to IP translator has been designed to help broadcasters solve IP challenges, allowing changes to network settings.
