Christie Spyder X20 video processor

Unmatched 20 megapixel video processing, matrix switching and integrated source monitoring

Overview

 

The Christie® Spyder X20 is a versatile, hardware-based video processor combined with the flexibility of a universal routing switcher. You get:

  • 20 megapixel bandwidth video processing,
  • internal matrix switching, and
  • integrated source monitoring for video wall monitoring.

Why use the Christie Spyder X20 video processor?

This technology makes complicated projection displays easier, faster and more flexible.

  • Monitor all inputs – in real time and full frame rates – simultaneously.
  • Blend, window, mix and scale any source format.
  • Use multiple resolutions from multiple sources.
  • Route displays to multiple destinations.
  • Route signals to any destination device or combination of display devices (projectors, plasma screens, LED walls, rear projection cubes, etc.)
  • Combine multiple displays to create an enhanced resolution that’s better than any single display could achieve.

Features

  • Live preview capabilities, with online editing 
  • Sources can be in preview and program 
  • An intuitive user interface 
  • Universal input/output capabilities 
  • Built-in conversion for analog/digital, interlaced/progressive, resolution, aspect ratio and frame rate   
  • Single point-of-control for all processing and signal distribution functions 
  • Small form factor (4RU) 
  • Easy set up and minimal wires, boxes and rack space – everything is contained in one unit
  • Simple, cohesive control through front panel functionality, Vista Control software and external control via Ethernet or serial port 
  • Redundant, hot-swappable, power supplies 
  • Unsurpassed, proprietary scaling and image quality 
  • Virtual software lets you build configurations and program without hardware 
  • Use with widescreen and single screen destinations within the same unit 
  • Unrestricted window and picture-in-picture (PIP) placement 
  • Any input can operate as a native, high-resolution channel, scaled PIP, scaled background or key channel 
  • Compatible with HDCP (optional)
