Barco provides a guarantee relating to perfect manufacturing as part of the legally stipulated terms of guarantee.
On receipt, the purchaser must immediately inspect all delivered goods for damage incurred during transport, as
well as for material and manufacturing faults. Barco must be informed immediately in writing of any complaints.
The period of guarantee begins on the date of transfer of risks, in the case of special systems and software on
the date of commissioning, at the latest 30 days after the transfer of risks. In the event of justified notice of
complaint, Barco can repair the fault or provide a replacement at its own discretion within an appropriate period.
If this measure proves to be impossible or unsuccessful, the purchaser can demand a reduction in the purchase
price or cancellation of the contract (redhibition). All other claims, in particular those relating to compensation for
direct or indirect damage, and also damage attributed to the operation of software as well as to other services
provided by Barco, being a component of the system or independent services, will be deemed invalid provided

2. Summary
2.1 Properties
iSTUDIO is a complete video, audio and data monitoring system. It typically consists out of one or more HYDRA COMPACT controllers, a visualization system (usually a rear projection Display Wall) and the iSTUDIO software to manage
the complete system.
Hydra Compact
One or multiple HYDRA COMPACT devices are the hardware part of the iSTUDIO system. Different video signals (analog, SDI or HD-SDI) and RGB data can be connected to a HYDRA COMPACT module by means of its Streaming video
cards, SDI video input cards, HD-SDI video input cards, analog video input cards and RGB input cards. Thus each
HYDRA COMPACT might monitor up to 40 video sources depending on the configuration. It provides a digital output
signal to display the sources on a visualization system. Furthermore the HYDRA COMPACT processes tallies and different kind of VBI. Either hardware tallies, connected via GPIO or software tallies can be used. Closed captions,
XDS, wide screen signaling and VITC can be detected and displayed. Audio metering information of analog and
digital sources can be processed with the external NGM-164 audio metering box; embedded audio can be processed with some of the input cards.
The HYDRA COMPACT runs a web server. This enables to simply connect to and operate the HYDRA COMPACT from any
PC connected to the same LAN as the HYDRA COMPACT. On the PC simply a standard web browser is required.
The HYDRA COMPACT is optimized for uninterrupted, fault free operation. Therefore a redundant power supply with
three power modules and individual power inputs is used. In this way failing of one power net or power supply
module will not power down the HYDRA COMPACT. The operating system is burned on CD and by this can not get
corrupt. For data storage a flash disk is used. In addition the output of one HYDRA COMPACT can be inserted to another HYDRA COMPACT; in case that a projection module of one HYDRA COMPACT fails, the other HYDRA COMPACT displays
a combined output of both units.
If the number of displayed sources exceeds the capacity of one HYDRA COMPACT, or if the sources shall be displayed
on a larger area multiple units can be used. The iSTUDIO software enables to easily operate all of these HYDRA
COMPACT units commonly as one wall.
The figure below shows a Display Wall consisting in three projection modules each connected to one HYDRA COMPACT. These HYDRA COMPACT units are connected via the LAN to a PC, that enables the control of HYDRA COMPACT units
and their output for the Display Wall by means of the iSTUDIO GUI, available through the web browser. The various
input sources are directly connected to the HYDRA COMPACT units.

2. Summary
iStudio
The iSTUDIO software enables the control of the HYDRA COMPACT as well as the management of the content of the
connected display. Multiple HYDRA COMPACT units can be grouped to a wall and operated commonly. Besides of
video and audio windows, also windows with content like text, logos, clocks, timers, a stopwatch or alarms can
be displayed. Furthermore applications and viewers can be started and displayed. The arrangement of these
windows and the combination of such layouts of different HYDRA COMPACT units can be stored and re-accessed.
iSTUDIO provides the functionality to integrate alarm indicators and the detected VBI and tallies in the respective
video windows.
NGM-164
The external device NGM-164 sends audio metering data and audio alarms of audio sources via the Ethernet to
the HYDRA COMPACT thus enabling to monitor up to 64 or, if using multiple NGM-164 units even more audio
sources. This enables the HYDRA COMPACT to monitor lots of audio channels without requiring slots in the NGH-001
for that purpose.

5.2 Cleaning
To keep the cabinet looking brand-new, periodically clean it with a soft cloth. Stubborn stains may be removed
with a cloth lightly dampened with mild detergent solution. Never use strong solvents, such as thinner or benzine, or abrasive cleaners, since these will damage the cabinet.
Unplug the device from the wall outlet before cleaning.
Never clean the case of HYDRA COMPACT without first disconnecting the power supply cords!
Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners!
