A world’s first feature on the Ascender 48
Ascender 48 (Ref. ASC4806) will be shown with an unparalleled operating mode: Perspective Layers. Available as an option for the Ascender 48, including units already in the field, Perspective Layers allow animation of live layers with a virtual viewing perspective in real time with X,Y,Z axis rotation control. In Perspective mode, the Ascender 48 can display 3 Perspective Layers per output plus a native background. The Perspective Layers can support the same seamless transition effects as any other layer. Using the Monitoring output, the operator can display the Perspective Layers on a preview in real time in order to see and arrange all layers and presets. Creation and management of the Perspective Layers can be managed directly from the Ascender 48’s Web RCS, a user-friendly interface. Equipped with 48 scalers, the Ascender 48 offers Mixer, Hybrid, Hard Edge and Soft Edge configurations to fit any application.
New – Cut & Fill feature on all the LiveCore™ systems
Analog Way constantly improves its systems according to market requests. A perfect example is the new Cut & Fill feature available in forthcoming version v3.01. Pairing two layers with the Web RCS, one containing a grey level source (Cut), the other one a live source (Fill), the unit can display perfectly keyed content to achieve nonrectangular smoothed-edged key layers. The Cut can be either a live source synchronized with the fill or a still picture. In this last case, adjusting the luma thresholds integrated in the preset allows creation of impressive dynamic transitions.
New – Vertige™ New firmware and more capabilities

The Vertige™ will be showcased with new firmware offering major improvements and new features. It can now control external matrix routers. Among other features, the Vertige™ can now manage devices in associative modularity mode: up to 4 LiveCore™ units of a same reference can be controlled together. In this configuration, wider screen display configurations can be achieved, either horizontally, vertically or both.
