For added reliability, Mentor CX changeover units provide manual, GPI, or automatic changeover between a pair of Mentor RG sync generators for the maximum possible availability for on-air productions. The Mentor CX features a front-mounted, hot-pluggable PSU with the option to add a second front-mounted redundant PSU.
Capable of switching up to 22 channels of mixed video, audio and timecode
signals, the Mentor CX will cover many applications where more than one main
sync and test generator needs to be backed up. Option cards add two channels of monitoring and changeover of analog signals or two channels of monitoring and changeover of SD/HD/3G video with format detection. A passive card is available to follow changeover events triggered by active cards that can switch digital or analog formats.
The base unit has a total of 10 channels comprising of 4 unbalanced channels of monitoring and switching of any combination of analog signals, 2 unbalanced channels of monitoring and switching SDI video, and 4 unbalanced channels of AES or LTC signals with format detection. Analog signals include Black Burst, Tri-Level Sync, AES/DARS, Word Clock 10MHz or 27MHz. SDI video includes SD/HD/3G.
