User-interfacing, network communication and other non-time critical processes are supported by the platform’s PC-based Communication module. The LiveCore™ platform is the heart of Analog Way’s new generation of high-end AV processors. It was designed to provide state-of-the-art imaging and real time processing, including 4K resolutions and a world premiere: the Perspective Layers for top-notch presentations. 15 The LiveCoreTM architecture is very modular. The image processing pipeline is mainly composed of three sections: input, processing and output. The input and output sections support 2K/2048x1152 and WQXGA resolutions. Analog Way created an upgrade kit with inputs and outputs supporting 4K resolutions. The powerful high-computing rate can also be upgraded with the Perspective Layers upgrade on the Ascender 48 only. This option allows 3D space management of layers: more than the 2D position, the depth and 3-axis rotation can be used for never-before-seen presentations. Uncompared power of video processing Thanks to its modular architecture, the LiveCoreTM platform has constantly been improved from its debuts. It offers advanced and powerful features. 6-2 Optimized layer management X The LiveCoreTM series features an independent native background for live or still images, allowing additional layering capability. X In order to offer higher creativity, all seamless layers are considered as uniform layers, meaning any source can be fully resized. Background Layer Background Layer 2 sources 4 sources 2+1: NeXtage 08, SmartMatriX Ultra & Ascender 16 16 4+1: NeXtage 16 & Ascender 32 Background Layer 6 sources 6+1: Ascender 48 6-3 Frames and Logos Up to 100 memories (Frames and Logos) can be stored in the LiveCore™-based systems' memory. Using the Web RCS interface, they can be imported from/exported to your computer or simply be captured from a live input. Management of pictures is accomplished via a unique thumbnail library. Frames and Logos have the same properties as live inputs: they are fully resizable and can support all settings and layer transitions. The LiveCore™ platform offers up to 4 seamless logos/frames. Format Upload Download Transparency support BMP Yes Yes N/A JPEG Yes Yes N/A TIFF Yes Yes Yes GIF* Yes Yes Yes PNG Yes Yes Yes ICO Yes Yes Yes * Animated Gif not supported 6-4 Advanced Layer Management Available for all the LiveCoreTM series, this feature allows shifting the processing resources (scalers) of an output stream to another output. This can be achieved through the Web RCS with a simple drag and drop change. An Ascender 48 can display up to 24 true-seamless live mix layers and a Native Background on a single output! 17 6-5 The Perspective Layers This feature is exclusively available for the Ascender 48 when equipped with the OPT-4KASC4806-PL option. With this option, the Ascender 48 supports Ultra High Resolution and the Perspective Layers feature. It reaches performances unequalled and gives incredible new possibilities for live presentations. Developed by Analog Way’s R&D, this new feature enables manipulation of layers in a 3D space. The layer content can be either a live source or a still picture. More than a simple keystone effect, operators have the ability to change the layers position in the 3 dimensions x, y and z, but also to rotate them according to the three axes. When the Perspective Layers feature is activated for a screen, the Ascender 48 is powerful enough to offer the same level of effects as in a flat 2D mode. Each step of a transition is computed in real-time: whether it is the Flying Curve trajectory of the PIP or their properties (transparency, size, cropping…). Coupled with the Advanced Layers Management, the Ascender 48 can manage up to 12 trueseamless Perspective Layers and a native background on a single output. Creation and management of the Perspective Layers can be managed directly from the Ascender 48’s Web RCS, a user-friendly interface, through a section specifically dedicated to the Perspective Layers. No need to say that show designers can unleash their creativity! See the Perspective Layers’ video on YouTube® or on www.analogway.com: 18 6-6 Display configurations The outputs of LiveCoreTM units can be used separately (one output equals one screen) or in Hard Edge/Soft Edge Blend configuration (several outputs are used to create a single screen). In both cases, the LiveCoreTM unit can display 2, 4 or 6 true-seamless layers on a native background.

X The system offers a true A/B mix such as dedicated video mixers do. Inputs can be perfectly mixed and switched without restriction. Control through the T-Bar remains available all the time, for transitions from A to B and B to A. Individual T-Bars are available for each screen. X Thanks to its outstanding effects, the LiveCore™ series is the ideal range to easily create Cut&Fill feature stunning presentations. New menus are available to manage effects. Layers are uniform and independent, which means specific effects can be applied to each of them: size, type of transition, time of the transition, colorimetric effects, etc. X The Cut&Fill feature pairs two layers, one using a gray level source (Cut), the other one a live source (Fill), to acheive non rectangular smooth-edged PIPs or impressive transitions. X A variety of stunning effects can be achieved using functionalities embedded in the machine to make the process straightforward. As an example, the new "Background Cut" function allows automatic and instant calculation of complex slice-cut transition effects. This feature can be computed according to the screen size or to the selection maximum size. X In order to provide cutting edge imaging in a live environment, the LiveCore™ platform uses Analog Way's latest high performance algorithms, including a fully redesigned deinterlacing process and stunning new chroma keying. Very low latency remains the cornerstone of this latest generation of processing. X For applications requiring non-standard display resolutions, the LiveCore™ platform enables to create and save up to 10 Custom Output Formats. Two modes are available: CVT Mode using the CVT rules of VESA for fast creation and Full Mode to access all the parameters of the format. 21 7 - U S E R - F R I E N D LY A N D I N T U I T I V E G R A P H I C I N T E R FA C E Analog Way has been working extensively on the LiveCore™ series control interface to allow for the best ease of setup and operation. Through its Front Panel interface or via its web-based Remote Control Software, the LiveCore™-based processors are extremely easy to use and monitor in the field. 7-1 Control from front panel The LiveCore™ series features a 4.3” TFT color display with WVGA resolution (800x480 pixels), and a new graphical interface. The new interface allows management of input sources with snapshots for monitoring directly on the front panel’s screen. 7-2 Powerful Intuitive Remote Control Software To help operators make the best use of the LiveCore™ platform, Analog Way designed a Webbased Remote Control Software (Web RCS), which can be run from any computer system using an Internet browser (PC, Mac, tablet). From the very beginning of the LiveCoreTM series, the Web RCS has been constantly upgraded to meet the needs of operators with new features and improved ergonomics. The latest version of the Web RCS integrates a new flat design: besides the esthetic change, the software now runs up to 30% faster and frees 30% of computer resources. 22 X The Web RCS offers a user-friendly graphic interface consisting of 3 independent sections: Setup, Edit and Live. Since LiveCoreTM version 2.0, Live and Edit modes have been merged to increase the productivity and comfort of the operator: switching between these modes is instantaneous and all the functionalities can be accessed from both modes. The Edit mode is mainly dedicated to work on a single screen at a time whereas the Live mode allows to have a global view of all your screens. X With dynamic snapshots of available connected sources, the intuitive interface allows operators to fully prepare their shows and control them live during their events. X An innovative Sequence mode allows easy organization of presets through drag and drop. Set up Live Edit 7-3 Customizable Monitoring Layout The layout of the Monitoring output can be modified with the Web RCS to create complex mixes of inputs, programs and previews fitting the application requirements. As easy as working with the layers on the Program/Preview, the Web RCS offers numerous preset layouts. Up to 10 custom layouts can be saved, and then be simultaneously recalled with the working presets. 7-4 Screen Preset Management Operators can save their screen presets in the 144 available Memories. These screen presets can be saved or recalled simultaneously for all the screens using the 144 available Master Memories. An advanced filtering system enables to save or recall on a subset of screen preset properties: source, position size, cropping, transition properties… 23 7-5 Customizable Shortcuts The Web RCS offers over 100 keyboard shortcuts to improve operators’ productivity. These shortcuts can be customized with dedicated combination of keys using the Shortcut Manager. 7-6 New Sequencer The Web RCS sequencer passes a new step in preset management. Thanks to an intuitive Sequence Editor, operators can create cue stacks: they can add, delete and change the order of different actions such as loading memories or master memories, waiting for an event or a timeout, taking a screen. Once the sequence creation is completed, it can be played once or looped. It is also possible to reach manually any step of the sequence using the sequence player as a virtual keyboard. 7-7 Preset ID It is possible to instantly identify which preset memories is used on a screen (Program or Preview) thanks to the preset ID displayed in the window title bar. If the preset has been modified then the preset name appears with a star. 7-8 Snap to Grid and Snap to Layer Two new features are available to help operators to adjust the layers position and size. As its name indicate, the Snap to Grid feature enables operators to position the layers on a grid whose vertical and horizontal steps in pixels are user defined. The Snap to Layer feature enables to configure the layers relatively to other layers or to the screen. 24 7-9 View saving Operators can save the visual configuration of the Web RCS so that the next time they use it they come back to their favorite layout. Moreover, a Touch Mode was added to the Web RCS to operate it with a tactile display: some controls are adapted for more comfort. 8- ACCESSORIES AND APPS 8-1 Secure Power Unit - Ref.

It is important to have the whole scene represented to work on multiple layers from different screens at the same time (change of source of background, for example). It is useful to have both states Program/Preview shown at the same time as the LiveCore™ series allows you to change one or the other at any time (even during an effect). 2- Preset section This section allows the operator to save/load its scene presets (10 direct access presets and a page mechanism to organize them). 28 8 3- Layer section This section enables the operator to select a set of layers which belong to different screens in order to edit them simultaneously. Various criteria are used to perform advanced combinations. It will be possible to save those combinations for later use. 4- Source section This section allows assigning sources to the selected layers in Program or Preview. Twelve contextual buttons display the name of source. The capability to change a page allows benefiting from numerous sources in association with the management of plugs for the LiveCore™ series. 5- Control section This section enables the operator to select which preset to work with, and have direct access to basic functions applied to all selected layers (Clear, Unify ...). 6- Edit section This section allows the operator to edit the selected layers in three different ways: roughly by the joystick, finely by coders or directly by numpad. The block containing the numpad is contextual and also provides access to pages of shortcuts, tools, layer presets (Position, Size, Border, Effect …). 7- Transition section This section enables to use the T-Bar for transitions. Sliders can be used like T-Bar (Effects) or like Faders (Alpha). They are motorized in order to see the current state of the selection. 8- Control Transition This section allows giving a specific role to the sliders: - In FX mode, they allow to individually mix each screen - In Alpha mode, where different layers of different screens can be assigned to a slider, they will allow to control the layer opacity (transparency). 1 0 - S Y S T E M S I N T E G R AT I O N & T O O L S Analog Way offers a complete range of solutions to take full advantage of the flexibility and performance of our processors and consoles.
