LINDY Switch Makes Multifunction Display Easy

User friendly GUI gives business users control over their displays

We announced today a video switch for businesses that don’t have the support of an AV technician, but want to show multiple displays to a single screen and provide additional information such as details of special offers or rolling news.

The LINDY 4 Port HDMI Video Processor Switch takes the output from four HDMI sources and displays them in a myriad of combinations on a single display. Using a simple desktop publishing style web interface, users can easily alter the way images are displayed, making it extremely flexible for a variety of uses from the foyer to the board room.

“The video processor uses chroma key to overlay two images, something that most people associate with the green screens in film production or TV weather reports, but it’s a highly effective tool in many other situations,” says Owen Haigh, Senior Product Manager of LINDY Electronics. “Chroma key allows users to easily overlay text or images over another HDMI source making it ideal in situation where information frequently changes. The user friendly GUI means that you don’t need to be an AV expert to get the results you want.”

In addition to chroma key, the LINDY 4 Port HDMI Video Processor Switch allows for images to be shown in Picture in Picture (PiP) and multi-window displays, supporting resolutions up to 1080p, which makes it ideal for control, monitoring and security applications. It is also capable of mirror and rotate functions. Audio is provided through the independent audio channel selection that supports a number of audio outputs including AC3, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD. The switch can also be controlled through on-panel controls, IR remote, RS 232 and Telnet.
