The ES9600 uses JPEG2000 compression, the same advanced image technology found in digital cinema theaters. JPEG2000 delivers video quality superior to MPEG thanks to its 12bit color depth and 4:4:4 color sampling. The ES9600 includes a file conversion utility that makes creating compatible JPEG2000 files hassle free and far easier than for many commonly used MPEG HD players.
The ES9600's two channels can be independently controlled or they can be synchronized for super-wide screen or stereoscopic displays. The dual HD-SDI or dual DVI-I connectors facilitate the playback of 3D video and 2K resolution files. In addition, multiple unit's can be synchronized for multi-screen presentations or playback of full 4k resolution.
The ES9600's front panel features an easy to use graphical user interface, jog wheel, transport controls and video confidence monitor. The unit also features a web interface for complete remote control and playlist management. Dual Gigabit Ethernet links provide simultaneous control and data transfer connections. Sony 9pin machine control, AMX, Crestron and Medialon drivers will be available soon. The ES9600's list of professional features also includes genlock input, LTC, and 16 channels of audio.
