ISIS GROUP RECEIVES ORDER FOR ELEVEN D/ESAM 230 AUDIO MIXERS
Taiwanese Broadcaster Chooses Graham-Patten Mixers for New Project

Grass Valley, CA (July 21, 2010) – The ISIS Group has received an order from the Taiwan Broadcasting System (TBS) for eleven Graham-Patten D/ESAM 230 audio mixers. The mixers will be used by the Public Television Service (PTS), a national non-commercial television network that is owned and operated by TBS.

Graham-Patten audio mixers have been the standard of the video post-production industry for more than 20 years. Their architecture and operation is identical to that of a video mixer, and all of their functions are serially controllable using the industry-standard protocol developed by Graham-Patten. In 1991, the company received an Emmy® Award for engineering excellence in development of the first D/ESAM mixers.

12-05-07 ISIS Introduces BNC Version of RGBHV Super Switch
INNOVATION 16x16 Switchers Now with BNC Connectors

Grass Valley, CA – The ISIS Group, Inc. announced the introduction of a new 16x16 RGBHV routing switcher in the INNOVATION line. The new model offers the same wide bandwidth, supporting all formats from VGA (640x480) through QSXGA (2560x2048), the same flexibility and rugged construction as the popular INNOVATION multimedia switchers.

“Customers tell us that they select the INNOVATION line for its rugged construction, bandwidth, and competitive pricing – and they want those same features for fixed installations, where footprint isn’t a significant concern. The new model, with BNC connectors, is easy to install where long cable runs make the HD15 connectors on our other models less desirable,” says Steven Block, ISIS CEO. “Our distributors lobbied hard for this version, and we’ve seen an early, positive response from customers.”

ISIS INTRODUCES HD, SDI AND ASI 2X2 PROTECTION SWITCHER
HD-212 Adds Signal Interruption Protection to Critical Paths

Grass Valley , CA - The ISIS Group, Inc. expands critical path protection with the introduction of the HD-212, a 2x2 HD/SDI/ASI protection changeover switch. The unit is ideal for use in network, transmitter inputs, or satellite and cable head end operations.

Robert Stillwaugh, ISIS Group VP and Technical Director, explains where the HD-212 is most useful. "We designed this unit at the request of a major satellite company. Whenever there is a redundant signal, the HD-212 provides near-instantaneous switchover to a live signal if there is an interruption in the primary input. The 2x2 auto-senses HD, SDI, or ASI signals. This design is especially flexible, letting an operation start with the minimum configuration and grow the system with field upgrades as requirements change."

4-17-06 NEW ROUTERS SYNCHRONIZE INPUT SIGNALS

Grass Valley, CA – The ISIS Group continues to expand the INNOVATION family of routers with two new HD routers. There are two versions of each of the 8x4 and 8x8 configurations. Version 1 offers synchronization of the input signals such that any input that is switched to any output sees no ‘glitches’. Version 2 is the non-synchronized choice; it simply makes a vertical interval switch between the HD input streams. Both versions include automatic input equalization and output re-clocking

The new routers will provide a benefit for certain special applications, according to Bob Stillwaugh, the ISIS Group Vice President, Technology. “Version 1 is especially useful in applications where it is necessary to provide down-stream devices with ‘glitch-free’ signals.”

The new HD routers will be displayed with the rest of the INNOVATION line in the ISIS booth (SU141) at NAB2006.
