Hybrid IP, UHD-Ready Multiview Monitoring Solution

EPIC™ MV is a highly scalable, SDI/IP multiviewer for playout and monitoring environments, providing a single canvas for mixed signal types and a seamless transition path to an all-IP future. This microservices-based multiviewer is scalable to thousands of PiPs and hundreds of displays, providing a high-quality, low-TCO monitoring solution that optimizes IP infrastructure investment.

Designed to simplify monitoring environments, EPIC MV is a true hybrid solution that natively supports high-bandwidth uncompressed content, as well as low-bandwidth compressed streaming formats. 

EPIC MV is a UHD-ready, multi-image display system with a rich set of supported tally, UMD protocols, and REST-API for the integration of control systems – it is primed for monitoring and monetizing content in high-value production environments.
