IP Multi Viewer


Multi viewer that supports up to 4 IP inputs for 4K*1or 16 IP inputs for HD (1.5G/3G) and up to 4 IP outputs for HD (1.5G/3G), in redundant SMPTE ST 2110*2 and SMPTE ST 2022-6 environments*3 .

Designed for IP or hybrid production workflows, the 1RU MV-1640IP supports SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE ST 2022-6 as standard. The unit supports up to 32 inputs (16 IP and 16 SDI*4) and 5 monitor outputs, and includes many of the same features found in other MV Series multi-viewers including M-JPEG stream output for LiveViewer and alarm recording function. An optimal choice when migrating to a mixed IP system and or building a new one while maintaining existing baseband system.
*1 SMPTE ST 2110/ST 2022-6 . Uncompressed video input only.  *2 SMPTE ST 2110-10/20/30/40(timecode).  *3 SMPTE ST 2022-7.  *4 Optional.

Supports IP inputs/outputs and ideal for to check IP sources

  • Inputs (Up to 32 inputs)

     - SDI outputs (standard): 4 outputs for 3G/HD-SDI or 1 output for 12G-SDI, and 1 HDMI output*4.
  • IP
     - IP Standard: SMPTE ST 2110-10/20/30/40, SMPTE ST 2022-6/7.
     - Compatible with SFP28 modules, the unit is ready for either 10 or 25 GbE environments.
     - Uses NMOS IS-04 for stream registration and NMOS IS-05 for stream switching.
  • Windows: Freely layout up to 25 windows for one 4K or up to 40 windows for four 2K signals.
  • Expandable number of inputs with low latency thanks to a cascaded connection scenario.
    *1 ST 2110/ST 2022-6 uncompressed. 
    *2 With MV-1640SDI installed. 
    *3 With MV-1640SDI-12G installed. MV-1640SDI is required. 
    *4 HDMI outputs same video as SDI output. 

Layout Manager and On-screen Monitoring

  • Customizes layouts, using the software in Windows® to adjust image size, position, title display, and other settings.
  • Stores layouts on the viewer.
  • Recalls saved layouts directly from the front panel control.
  • Logo display in title areas: Stores and displays 4 logo images.
  • Tally, Title, and Timecode Display.
  • Time of day, Timer, and Information Display.
  • Can display time based on a 30-hour clock.
  • Registers up to 24 schedule timers per day for 1 week.
  • Supports data import even when offline.
  • Multiple units controlled via layout manager.



  • Audio Level Display.
  • Audio Monitoring Output.

M-JPEG Stream Output and Cropping

  • An integrated M-JPEG streaming video output serves as a simple way to monitor signals outside of the control room, with users accessing the signal from any web-enabled device.
  • Dedicated APP for Windows®:
     - Monitor the M-JPEG streaming output on an app for Windows.
     - Pre-alarm recording allows footage to be stored on PC HDD and reviewed when error occurs.
  • Cropping:
     - Specifies areas to crop in pixels or by percent.
     - Background image is shown outside cropped areas.
     - Aspect ratio also maintained after partial cropping (of one side, for example).


Resize from HD to 4K and from 4K to 2K.



Cascade Connection

  • Units can cascade via SDI, with a few micro seconds delay with each addition.
  • Numbers of the windows per monitor can be increased.
  • Monitor SMPTE ST2110/SMPTE ST2022-6/SDI/HDMI together by connecting the MV-1200* or MV-1640IP configured for SMPTE ST 2022-6.
    *To be supported. 

Controls and Error Detection

  • Supports external interfaces and control protocols (including monitoring), SNMP function.
    - Supports Ember+.
    - Monitor SFP communication status, result of IP/SDI conversion, PTP status and more via SNMP.
  • Detects frozen frames (Y/C and Y only).
  • View error logs or user text in the Information Display.
  • Flashing borders or error icons/messages to identify screens with errors.
  • Pre-alarm recording allows footage to be stored on PC HDD and reviewed.
