greenMachine – an Overview

LYNX Technik AG

greenMachine is unique in that it takes a three-pronged approach to processing definition and function. Rather than being a fixed application-specific box, greenMachine is a combination of:

This shifts the paradigm and creates an efficient and cost effective way of designing systems and broadcast infrastructure that embraces scalable performance and adaptable applications minimizing hardware obsolescence. This adaptability and customization are the true unique and flexible heart of the greenMachine concept. Users have peace of mind that their hardware investment is safe now, and for the future. 


greenMachine is designed to help broadcasters and media professionals achieve the ultimate in flexibility on how they manage their signal processing applications. greenMachine now offers a full menu of pre-defined configurations:

  • HDR & SDR Processing
  • Frame Synchronization
  • Test Generators
  • Bi-Directional Video Transport
  • Up/down/cross Video Conversion

Featured Functions can include: frame sync, scaler (ROI), UPXD converter, Dolby E® decoder, embedder/de-embedder, MADI in/out, de-Interlacer, video adjustment, color correction/adjustment, timing adjustment, basic test signal generator, metadata management, audio processor, dual or quad-transport and controller for SNMPv2 control. 

greenMachine HARDWARE:

12G SDI 4K/UHD titan hardware can simultaneously process four 3G/HD/SD-SDI video streams, or the channels can be combined to a single 12G SDI 4K/UHD path. Video input and output (up to 3840 x 2160 @60 Hz) and can be single-link 4K video (12G) on BNC coax or 12G fibre, or 2SI quad-link (4x 3G-SDI coax).

Conversion from any input format to any output format is supported.

All greenMachines include full cross-point switching and distribution at input and output and in addition to the many video formats will accommodate analog, discrete or embedded AES and MADI audio. A Dolby E® decoder and a full metadata management tool are also included. HDMI in/outputs are provided for ingest from PC or satellite receiver etc., and for output monitoring. Fibre interfaces for 3G HD-SDI, 12G UHD/4K-SDI and Gigabit Ethernet LAN control are via optional SFPs.

greenMachine users can configure and control the platform via the intuitive and heavily graphics based greenGUI, which is free to download.

You can run it in simulation mode without greenMachine hardware connected, which helps to explore the myriad of adjustments and capabilities available. It goes without saying that greenMachine is fully SNMPv2 compatible. The greenGUI control software provides remote control and status monitoring and event (error) reporting for all the greenMachines installed on a network. The full collection of signals can be shared with all the greenMachine devices in a network.
