October 2013 – Analog Way is excited to introduce Pulse², a new versatile Mixer / Native Matrix Switcher. Pulse² is based on Analog Way’s new MidraTM platform, the core of a brand new line of mid-range Mixers / Seamless Switchers. The MidraTM platform consists of 6 products: QuickVu, QuickMatriX, SmartMatriX², Saphyr, Eikos² and Pulse².
Analog Way is pleased to renew its line of mid-range Mixers Seamless Switchers with the Midra™ platform. Based on Midra™, the Pulse² offers a new design and innovative functionalities, including some advanced features inherited from the LiveCore™ series, Analog Way’s range of Premium Presentation Mixers.
A new architecture
Thanks to optimized programming and a new architecture, the Pulse² offers Fast Seamless Switching, with a 50% speed gain in control parameter response. The de-interlacing process on the Pulse² was significantly improved, similar in quality to the process available on the LiveCore™ series.
Pulse² offers two frame layers, with background and foreground positions. Thanks to the new Quick Frame function, a foreground frame can quickly hide all other layers when necessary.
Preset management was also optimized, and the Pulse² offers smart functions such as Swap and Split. Available using hot keys, these functions allow users to switch between a PIP and a live background source (Swap), or the display of two PIPs side-by-side on a colored or frame background (Split).
Advanced audio management
The RCS² is a user-friendly graphic interface designed for the Midra™ platform, and inspired by the Web RCS of the LiveCore™ series.
As an AIR application, the RCS² is compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux. It offers 3 main sections to setup and control the Pulse²: Setup, Edit and Live.
The section to control audio signals includes the main elements of an audio console, including a potentiometer and a VU meter.
The Midra™ series can also be controlled by several Analog Way’s Remote Controllers, including Orchestra and Vertige (available 1st semester 2014).
