Under Monitor Display and Tally Systems
Under Monitor Displays (UMDs) are extremely powerful tools in the design of control room monitoring systems, giving immediately identification of the source and/or destination of the signals being displayed on the monitors. Advanced UMD systems can incorporate tally information in the display and can be directly interfaced to the switching equipment that feeds the signals to the monitors so that the display information is continually updated as switching events occur.
The displays can operate as ‘static’ displays, where the information to be displayed is downloaded to the device from a PC over a serial data link or by push-buttons, or as ‘dynamic’ displays, where the information is received continuously from the router control system.
UMDs (Under Monitor Displays) are alpha-numeric display modules with tally LED bars positioned under picture monitors (or in front of them). A remotely located Controller interfaces all the messages, color attributes and tallies with the Router and the Vision Mixer.
Dynamic UMDs are serially addressed by the Controller and can be TRI-color. Tally routing information may be changed either automatically or at will. Film static displays are bi-color with two tally led bars.
Various types of display are available, so as to match common monitor spacing.
The Under Monitor Displays are designed to operate either alone or as part of an integrated system. The modular approach allows a system to be easily reconfigured at a later date.
Static and Dynamic displays are available as single, double and triple to match common picture monitor spacing. OSD Audio monitor Display with Tally are available so to integrate the System with the new flat LCD monitor (for Video Splitting wall).
A high level of integrated technology Controller ensures control of UMDs and Multi-Image Viewers from most brands interfaces, allowing connection of up to a large numbers of UMD in the Control Room.
UMDs (Under Monitor Displays) are alpha-numeric display modules with tally LED bars positioned under picture monitors (or in front of them). A remotely located Controller interface all the messages and color attributes and tallies with the Router and the Vision Mixer.
UMDs are usually either 10, 20, double 9 or triple 6 character dynamic displays.
They can also be film static displays.
The static ones are bi-color backlight displays with a tally LED bar.
Dynamic UMDs are serially addressed by the Controller. Tally routing information may be changed either automatically or at will.
Various types of display are available, so to match common monitor spacing.
