“For three years Key Digital’s multiviewer has been our most popular and dynamic video processing device. The longevity of the product says so much about its rich feature set in a time of such rapid technological advancements,” said Jonathon Ferry, national training manager for Key Digital. “With the release of KD-MLV4x2PRO we are implementing the feedback of our customers to add improvements to a favorite. HDBaseT output with an included Rx unit means ease of integration with displays and projectors, and the addition of multi-channel audio formats adds to the versatility of this product as it is now ideal for theater applications as well as conferencing and collaboration.”
The KD-MLV4x2PRO provides Multiview functionality and seamless switching. This allows installers and users to give any large panel or screen video wall functionality. In full screen mode, the screen will display any of the six (four HDMI and two VGA) video sources. In quadrant mode, this view is all four video sources in equally sized-quadrants, and in multiview mode the option is to choose a primary video source on the top, bottom, left, or right of the screen while still viewing the additional three sources. In addition to multiview picture-in-picture functionality, KD-MLV4x2PRO is also a seamless switcher with uninterrupted screen transitions during source selections, making it ideal for conferencing and presentation applications where slow video sync time on the room’s projector can lead to user frustration.
The KD-MLV4x2PRO offers maximized processing capabilities needed for the most technical applications including the ability to make custom screen layouts with layering and transparency features.
A wide array of control options include IR, RS-232, TCP/IP via open API, and web control interface, in addition to Key Digital’s control system Compass Control Pro which has the most native interface for the product.
KD-MLV4x2PRO joins a suite of Key Digital IP-enabled products that are now app ready. The engineers at Key Digital have created a very easy way for installers and users to switch inputs and control Key Digital systems as if you were standing in front of the unit — all from your iOS device. The Key Digital app can be downloaded free from the App Store.
