For increased system flexibility, the ISS 506 features separate
Preview and Program outputs. Discrete input selection for each
output enables preview capability of the “next to switch” source,
allowing an operator to cue material locally on a Preview monitor,
touch-screen control panel, or other viewing device.
Two simultaneous Program outputs are provided for dual-screen
environments. Additionally, the ISS 506 can be configured with an
optional output card to suit specific system needs. Available output
cards include 3G/HD-SDI, DVI, and scan-converted standard
definition video.
For professional transitions between inputs, the ISS 506
offers a wide range of effects, including dissolves and wipes with
selectable durations, as well as a cut. When the switching includes
audio signals, audio cross-fading is implemented that matches the
duration of the video transition effect.
In addition to seamless transition effects, the ISS 506 includes a
host of features for enhancing presentations. A PIP - picture-inpicture mode allows insertion of a PIP window that can be sized
and positioned anywhere onscreen, and transitioned into and out of
the image via wipe, dissolve, or cut effects.
The ISS 506 also provides the capability to insert one or two
graphic logos into any presentation. A corporate logo, black
screen, or any captured portion of an image can be positioned and
keyed into the presentation. Additionally, title keying is available for
overlaying title information for I-MAG applications, or other content
from any input source.
With versatile control functionality, the ISS 506 is ideal for
corporate boardrooms, auditoriums, houses of worship and other
live events. Full setup and operation is available from the front panel
as well as through RS-232 and Ethernet control. Furthermore,
presentations can be managed using the Extron
RCP 2000 Remote Control Panel.

computer‑video signals up to WUXGA
1920x1200, and HDTV up to 1080p/60.
The ISS 506 also offers two additional

Seamless Transition
Effects
The ISS 506 offers 26 seamless
transition effects including 24 wipe
options, in addition to a dissolve and
a cut effect.
Separate Preview and Program
outputs provide the ability to manage
presentations by previewing content
before displaying it on the Program
outputs. Operators can select the next
input, cue up the material, insert logos,
titles or PIP, and assign transition effects.
Once everything has been prepared, the
content can be sent live to the audience
with a single button press.
The ISS 506 can output RGB or HDTV
component video signals. The Program
content is output simultaneously on five
BNCs and a 15-pin HD connector, so
that two displays can be driven at the
same time.
Variety of Output Options
A flexible output expansion port can be
populated to support optional DVI-D,
3G/HD-SDI, or scan converter output
boards. When populated, these cards
serve as a third Program output and offer
additional system capabilities, such as
recording or digital signal transmission.
Selectable Output Resolutions
The ISS 506 offers scaled output rates,
including the following resolutions for
computer-video, projectors, plasma and
LCD displays, and HDTV:
640x480 800x600 852x480 1024x768 1024x852 1024x1024 1280x768 1280x1024

Audio Switching
The ISS 506 delivers complete audio
functionality with six input switching of
stereo balanced or unbalanced sources.
Audio switching can be either a hard
cut or a cross-fade, timed to match the
duration of a video transition. Individual
gain and attenuation adjustments are
available, eliminating noticeable differences
when switching between sources of
varying levels. Additionally, output
volume control eliminates the need for
an outboard audio preamplifier in many
system designs. Automatic audio delay,
based on video format, is applied to keep
the audio and video signals synchronized.
Numerous Seamless Transition
Effects
Several selectable wipe, dissolve, and cut
effects can be utilized to enhance and
deliver professional quality presentations, at
the touch of a button. Programmable effect
durations offer increased variety and further
customization, while adding a high level of
visual impact.
Multiple Logo Insertion with
Dynamic Image Capture
The ISS 506 allows the user to add one
or two logos to any presentation. A logo
can be created by capturing any portion of
an image displayed on-screen, and then
storing it in memory. Logos may also be
created on a PC and then uploaded to
the ISS 506 as BMP - bitmap image files
through the Ethernet port. Any of up to 16
logos stored in memory can be recalled for
display, positioned anywhere on the image,
and keyed into the display with specific
RGB or luminance levels.

Flexible Output Options
An expansion port provides the
option of a third, configurable
Program output for sending
high resolution digital video
to a large venue projector
or flat screen display, or
recording presentations via a
scan‑converted video output.
Auto-Image™ capability and 11 internal
test patterns expedite the set up process
and assist in delivering optimal image
quality. Available test patterns include:
color bars, two crosshatch patterns,
grayscale, ramp, alternating pixels, raster
border, and crop patterns for various
aspect ratios.
