A new single board computer (SBC) for Hydra and Hydra Compact has
been introduced to support native SXGA+ and UXGA output timings on
iStudio.
Sales release
Hydra and Hydra Compact – new single board computer (SBC)
Overview
The new SBC allows using the full SXGA+ and UXGA resolution for graphical information on
@STUDIO. As such, the @STUDIO graphics (borders, audio bar graphs, fonts, clocks, …) will be
displayed with much better quality on SXGA+ and UXGA displays.
Via the @STUDIO GUI with the new SBC the following new timings can be selected:
•
•
Projector Barco OverView DR+ SXGA+ Native
Projector Barco OverView PU UXGA Native
All other timings are still supported.
Please note:
Timings for third-party displays (= non-Barco displays) are delivered on an as-is basis. Barco
does not give any warranties regarding the functionality of these timings.
The new SBC can easily be identified by
its second network connector on the slot
plate. The serial interface for RS232 is
now provided via an extra slot plate
immediately next to the SBC.
Please note:
Currently only the top network connection
is supported!
Furthermore the SBC not only requires a new internal power cable but will also have to be
taken into consideration when calculating the max. number of boards to be plugged in a
HYDRA and a HYDRA COMPACT, respectively. The updated formulas are documented in the Hydra
user manuals and of course implemented in the BFO configurator.

Software and hardware compatibility
The new SBC is supported in @STUDIO 1.8.6 or higher.
Please note:
The @Studio 1.8.6 is a service release and only intended for Hydra systems containing the
new SBC! @Studio 1.8.6 should not be used to upgrade existing installations! The following
@Studio release (1.8.7, due for Q4 2005) will again be applicable for upgrading existing
installations.
The new SBC requires overlay board OVL /3 or higher. A straight flat cable combined with an
adapter PCB is used to connect the SBC to the overlay board.
Please note:
Using the wrong flat cable will permanently damage the SBC!
Current SBC’s can be replaced or upgraded in the field.
