In addition to a native background layer, Ascender 48 can display up to 6 true-seamless scaled layers per output. Up to 50 frames and 50 logos can be stored in the device’s memory bank. Layers, including frames and logos, can be controlled individually in time and transition, and can be fully resized.
The new version 1.3 of the Ascender 48 presented at ISE 2014 will offer several major improvements.
The link mode will provide the ability to link two units, with inputs and outputs shared and added. Units will then function as one impressive 24×8+2 Scaled Seamless Matrix system with 2 live Mosaic Previews, 84 input plugs and 96 scalers available.
