The LZX Industries Visual Cortex consolidates the functionality of several previous LZX modules to bring users a highly capable module that is able to serve as the nexus of any Eurorack video synthesis system. In addition to external video processing and 2D shaping/animation, the module is also capable off complex color mixing, automated transitions, luma/chroma keying, and much more.
Visual Cortex Features
Input Decoder prepares external video sources for processing inside your modular videosynthesis system. The video input is YPbPr (Component) for full color video processing. The Y input may be used with NTSC/PAL sources if only monochromatic processing is desired.
Output Encoder transforms any type of voltage video, audio, CV, logic into video signals suitable for display or recording. Outputs include NTSC/PAL, SVideo and YPbPr (Component) video signals.
Sync Generator produces master synchronizing pulses for your entire modular video synthesis system. It can lock to external sources for synchronized processing. NTSC/480i and PAL/576i timing formats are supported.
Animation & Key Generator is a multifunction low frequency control voltage generator designed specifically for video transitions, with an internal keyer as well. It is capable of triggered, manual and automated transitions.
Colourizer & Compositor is a multifunction analogue RGB processor designed to combine two sets of RGB signals into a single composite output. Blending modes include crossfading, addition/subtraction, and multiplication. Special features include color inversion, solarization, and a triple band linear colourizer.
Power consumption is 225mA per each +/12V power rails.
EuroRack standard power connector.
