Sierra Video SV-SM-12 SierraView Multi-Viewer, 12-input multi-viewer, 1RU


SierraView, from Sierra Video, is a full-featured high resolution family of multi-viewers that provides a flexible and cost-effective way of combining and displaying multiple images (or “tiles”) on a video display device. SierraView is designed for extreme versatility, allowing tile content, size, labels and positioning as well as display background to be changed to suit any application. Clocks, timers, time-code readers, UMDs, tallies and event indicators are easily generated as required.

SierraView SV-SM Series multi-viewers offer up to 16 video inputs (HD-SDI, SDI, and two DVI-I) and are housed in a 1RU frame - perfect for small broadcast and Pro AV applications.

The SierraView SV-SM Series allows multiple video channels, audio channels, audio meters, clocks and data to be integrated into a single display, or to be distributed and integrated among several displays for sophisticated studio monitoring and control purposes. It provides considerable flexibility with full audio support, easy browser configuration and control, as well as sophisticated alarms reporting. SV-SM Series multi-viewers are the ideal solution for compact monitoring in smaller OB vans, editing suites, master control or digital playout facilities.

SV-SM multi-viewers handle virtually any video format up to HD 1080p, 3Gbps. BNC and DVI-I connectors on the rear panel handle all video inputs. The SV-SM Series provides DVI-I output up to 1080p60 (1920x1080) in 16:9, for use with the highest quality LCD displays.

Extensive audio metering and monitoring support is a standard feature of all SierraView models. Up to 256 channels of audio bargraphs may be superimposed on the video, placed outside of the video or displayed in a dedicated tile. The bargraphs offer a choice of scales/ballistics and a loudness display option. Audio may be embedded or external analog or AES/EBU. Most international standard scales and ballistics (including Loudness) are supported and may be set by the user.

SV-SM Series multi-viewers provide alarms for video, audio and metadata with outputs to tallies, GPIs/GPOs, LAN and SNMP traps, allowing connection of the SV-SM-8, SV-SM-12 or SV-SM-16 with external monitoring systems.

The browser interface has been designed to make SierraView models very easy to use and enables all parameters to be quickly adjusted or pre-set configurations to be recalled, or played out as scheduled events. The optional remote panel (REMOTE-sv) has ten buttons which enable pre-set configurations to be instantly recalled.
