New Annotation Pro Debuts from Williams AV

Williams AV just introduced the Annotation Pro (AN-C5), its next generation of annotation systems aimed at both ProAV and broadcast applications.

Annotation PRO adds 4K for system designers as well as a new NVIDA processor with 256 NVIDIA CUDA cores. This processor can deliver processing with less than two frames of latency. The embedded software application runs on a Linux OS and offers upgrade possibilities that Williams says are unavailable in a hardware based FPGA or ASIC solutions.

With two digital video inputs, a HDMI and USB 3.0 video and PIP (picture-in-picture) capabilities, the system can be configured to support many different dual video output viewing configurations such as near end/far end video, people & content, judge & defendant and so on. The USB 3.0 can also be configured for video capture applications.

Designed for the AV integrator, it works with any HDMI switcher and third party control system, Annotation Pro can work in a video in-line or loop through video design. And depending upon the project requirement the Annotation Pro can be ordered in either a non-HDCP (Annotation Pro) at $2,995 or as an HDCP-compliant (Annotation Pro Plus) device at $3995.

Here are all the specs.
