Weight

68 lbs

Product Details

With native 4K input and output, this device provides impressive pixel processing power. Native or scaled inputs, two connectors or four, this HDCP-compliant system manages it all. With 28 inputs and 14 outputs (eight PGM, two Multiviewer and four scaled Aux outputs), the system offers full show control, including eight independent PIP mixers and a dedicated Multiviewer.

Thanks to its linkable chassis, it can easily expand beyond these eight outputs without the need for additional external processing and routing to distribute the signals. And as its inputs and layers can also be extended, the E2 is even capable of managing a blend of up to 32 4K projectors.

The E2’s straightforward cross-platform user interface provides touchscreen ergonomics. Having the presets stored on the chassis enables easy control via third party systems. Multiple users can control the system simultaneously, and the API allows third-party developers to create custom control programs and interfaces.

Designed for the live-event industry, the rugged E2 features a steel chassis that withstands the challenging conditions of life on the road. It offers screen control in a compact form factor of only four rack units, making it easy to ship and install. And its modular cards and dual redundant power supplies make the unit reliable and easy to maintain in the field.
