Kaleido-Solo is a compact, standalone 3Gbps/HD/SD SDI video to HDMI converter, which allows low cost LCD displays to be used for video and loudness/dialnorm monitoring. It's ideal for many professional monitoring applications, including production, mobile truck, post-production and broadcast.
The converter allows operators to monitor loudness and dialnorm levels accurately over time, using an history graph overlay, without the cost and complexity of a traditional loudness monitoring device. Kaleido-Solo also provides overlays for markers, Time Code, dynamic UMD (Under Monitor Display), AFD and ALM (Audio Level Meters). To simplify embedded audio monitoring, it provides two audio connectors to output S/PDIF and analog stereo of a 5.1 downmix, or any audio pair.
Kaleido-Solo provides automatic video input format detection, and supports a wide variety of video resolutions, including 525i, 625i, 720p, 1080i and 1080p.Kaleido-Solo is available in two versions: KS-900 and KS-910. These two versions are identical except that the KS-900 does not offer loudness and dialnorm monitoring.
