    Predator II-GX is more than just an HD multiviewer - it is a complete HD control and monitoring solution. It features auto-sensing support for multiple input standards and a modular architecture that allows smaller models to be expanded as demand grows. Combining pristine quality images, easy-to-use editing software and an array of standard video and audio monitoring capabilities, the Predator II-GX also offers extensive ancillary data decoding capabilities while the optional computer graphics card allows for the addition of test, monitoring or control sources on-screen as part of the multi-image display.

    The HD8 Predator II-GX offers a 1RU Frame with 8 video inputs. The unique Predator II-GX architecture allows the user with a smaller model to expand their input capacity by adding additional processing cards to match any future increase in monitoring needs. This highly flexible multiviewer also offer options to monitor PC sources on screen alongside video source, for example placing playout server control on screen alongside the playout sources to mix monitoring and control on the same displays.

    The Predator II GX series is an ideal selection for production and broadcast monitoring applications with it excellent image quality, minimum processing delay and easy to use configuration software.
