Lynx' Approach to greenMachine Operation and Configuration

Reprogrammable Multi-Purpose Signal Processing Platform

Lynx Technik AG, the provider of modular interfaces for broadcast and professional AV signal processing applications, will be showcasing its multi-purpose signal processing platform, greenMachine at the upcoming NAB show. It helps broadcasters and media professionals achieve the ultimate in flexibility on how to manage their signal processing applications.

GreenMachine offers a full set of pre-defined configuration concepts as "Constellations." These range anywhere from HDR conversion & processing, 4K up / down / cross conversion, frame synchronization, test signal generation, scaling, embedding / de-embedding, a host of audio processing configurations and much more. It is also possible to install it in every green machine. As Lynx Technique adds more Constellations, a user can simply download Constellations.

Users can reprogram greenMachine by selecting their configuration depending on the application and how they need to use the greenMachine. One can simply reprogram greenMachine via the local control panel or control software which provides free access to all available Constellations. If a constellation is not yet licensed, then the user still has full access to the new configuration. The video output simply has a watermark until a license is purchased. Another form of benefit is that when two or more green machines are connected to a PC or Mac running our free greenGUI software, they form a "greenUniverse." This Universe enables the greenMachines to freely share and transfer constellations between machines. 

The licensed constellations exist in the network "cloud" as in "instance" which is accessible by any machine. If multiple machines need the same Constellation, users simply add more instances (or licenses) for that Constellation. This shifts the paradigm and creates efficient and cost-effective ways of designing and minimizing hardware obsolescence. This adaptability and customization is the true unique and flexible heart of the greenMachine concept. Users have peace of mind that their hardware investment is safe, and for the future.

Lynx Technik will be showcasing the greenMachine multi-purpose processing platform and demonstrating how Constellations bring true flexibility to a signal processing workflow, at NAB 2019.
