OUR PART # HQV520
The Optoma HQView520 HQVâ„˘ is a Scalerâ€“Switcher/Scan Converter with Warp, Edge Blend, and 3G-SDI In/Out that can be used as a routing switcher and universal interface for 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, DVI, as well as HDMI.
Optoma has collaborated with Calibre to produce special versions of Calibreâ€™s edge blending and warping products, optimizing them for use with Optoma's ProScene series of projectors. This unique partnership delivers reduced complexity and setup time needed for edge blending of multiple ProScene projectors, and is covered by Optoma's industry-leading ProScene technical support services should you need assistance with your edge blending needs.
Edge Blending Explained
Some applications require a brighter and higher resolution image than can be produced by a single lone projector, so in this situation, when more than one projector is needed to provide a single image, unless done well, the image could display visible "bands", showing overlap of the projected images, and interfering with image clarity. Edge-blending technology solves this problem through elimination of the visible banding to produce a single bright, high resolution image across the projection surface, using multiple projectors. The HQView520 lets you precisely control multiple, edge-blended images quickly, easily, and seamlessly.
Keeping end-user applications in mind, the HQView520 is made to allow you to expertly and seamlessly edge-blend multiple, curved images on all 4 image edges using an unlimited number of projectors. You'll get precise control of edge-blended images and warp displays to fit practically any projection surface â€“ flat or curved (for more information, see the "Optoma Simple Guides" under the "Documentation" tab above).
The Optoma Advantage
Traditional blending solutions require time-consuming and complicated configuration with many compatibility issues between blending solutions and projectors. Optoma's blending solution resolves and eliminates this. Each of Optoma's ProAV projector models has been rigorously tested with the HQView520 and a series of optimized presets developed to greatly reduce blending project complexity and setup time.
If help is needed with your blending project, uniquely, the industry-leading ProAv support team at Optoma is available to assist with your complete blending project â€“ blending boxes and projectors as a single system â€“ which helps greatly simplify the support process for you, and allowing us to help in quickly and efficiently putting your blending projects on track.
For over a decade, Optoma has been one of the worldâ€™s foremost projector designers and manufacturers - among the very few companies which focus exclusively on projectors.
Today the Optoma range is representative of the evolution of projection expertise, honed and refined through manufacturing and support of millions of projectors worldwide. This expertise has been integrated into their products and support services, with an eye toward demanding pro applications, including:
Harnessing the powerful capabilities of the Reonâ„˘ video processor from IDT, running state-of-the-art HQV algorithms within skillfully designed hardware and firmware from Calibre, the Optoma HQView520 is a high-performance yet compact image scaler featuring HDMI/DVI/Component/VGA inputs and HDMI/DVI output, all delivering stunning image quality for Broadcast, professional, and corporate AV users.
This exceptional unit includes 4-sided soft edge blend for seamless multiple projector image blending, and flexible geometry correction functions which can rectify image shape and projector misalignment using drag and drop of each image corner, using pin, rotation, barrel, or using keystone and rotation.
The HQView520 also includes full warp-mapping capability, with this capability provided by an included flexible and intuitive PC application. Third party generated warp maps can also be processed from automatic image alignment systems, all of which helps make the HQView520 great for dual overlaid projector alignment in 3D projection systems.
This exceptional unit comes with 3G-SDI input and out connectivity and is backwards compatible with HDSDI and SDSDI. A Genlock input is included for studio/staging, compatible with bi or tri-level sync, as well as black & burst.
Automatic Geometric Alignment
The HQView520 is Scalable Ready certified, so it can be used with Scalable Display Technologies products, providing automatic geometric display alignment. This camera-based, software-driven system automatically aligns displays with remarkable accuracy and speed, to even further simplify the setup of warping and blending of projects.
