The Cronos series multi-function integrated signal Controllers have support for 4K @ 60 ultra-high definition video signal acquisition and transmission. The video resolution can reach all 4:4:4 chroma sampling in the RGB color spectrum. The signal processor truly is a high performance integrated signal processing platform. The pure hardware FPGA system architecture and modular design concept are extended to ensure the system is stable and efficient while supporting flexible and personalized combinations of various interfaces and service Models. The advanced system architecture and algorithms give the Cronos higher processing power as well as handling a maximum input and output scale of 320.320. 


The Cronos series multi-function integrated signal processor has matrix switching, large screen splicing controls, KVM system management, flexible configuration which provides a subversive upgrade of integrated control as well as other functions. With all this functionality, the Cronos series effectively reduces the amount of equipment required as well as the complexity of the system.

Cronos™ Multi-Function Integrated Signal Processing Platform


Cronos is a versatile, high-end plat-form for real-time testing of digital signal processing algorithms. Its modular design can support single equipment input and output up to 320*320, Ip Stream and 4K signals.


Millisecond Seamless Switching


Cronos uses a massive data transfer chip technology. It incorporates each signal dynamic setting to each signal exclusive channel transmit. The fast speed of Cronos allow it to operate at nanoseconds switching with no loss in efficiency.


KVM Operating Position Management


Cronos uses a compatible audio / video signal transmit and integrate control signal processing technology. It also contains a matrix KMV function to get intelligent management operation system.


Analog audio


Cronos supports all the video input channel synchronization and analog audio capture. It also includes separation of analog audio and embedded digital audio signal and video signal synchronous switch. It backs the feature of AV integrated linkage management.


Input Signal Network Preview


Cronos designs to support preview all the input signal image through software. Operators running Cronos can preview signal resources in advance before they display on video wall and can prevent any sort of error which highly enhances usage efficiency.


4K singal Input/Output



Like all other Tricolor devices, Cronos also supports high resolution 4K signal acquisition. It provides customer a unique viewing experience.


IP Streaming Codec


Cronos uses a Digital IP Streaming signal processing technology. It also supports IP signal decoding acquisition and encoding output. Another unique feature of Cronos is, Signals can be shared through network achieving signal interconnection. This feature simplifies administrator’s operation.


Input and Output Card mixed insertion


Cronos also contains input and output card mixed insertion feature. The chassis card slot provides unlimited support for both input and output cards. This enhances the utilization of chassis slot. Operators can enjoy high flexibility and convenience through Cronos.
