The Antares ATR-1a is a one U, rack-mountable hardware version of Antares’s Auto-Tune pitch correcting software. The ATR-1a uses state-of-the-art digital signal processing algorithms to detect the pitch of an input signal (usually a solo voice or instrument) and instantly change it to the desired pitch, and preserve all the expressive nuances of the original performance without distortion or artifacts.
Make Scale From MIDI – Simply play a series of notes into the Antares ATR-1a from a MIDI keyboard or controller and the ATR-1a automatically constructs a custom scale containing only the notes from your performance.
Expression – The ATR-1a’s Speed control ensures that the rate of pitch correction (i.e., the speed at which the input pitch is adjusted to the target pitch) can be matched to virtually any style of performance.

It features two 8″ monitors each with a loop-through SDI input and output. The inputs are auto-sensing/selecting so you don’t have to worry about matching the input format; the monitor will display any supported format that you feed it.
You can choose to select to display either the input video or one of six scope displays, while the input video passes through the monitor to downstreamed devices.
Blackmagic Design’s SmartView Duo comprises a pair of side-by-side 8″ LCD monitors – both with an auto-selecting 3G/HD/SD-SDI input – that are housed in a 3 RU-high, rackmountable form factor. Ideal for live broadcast and mobile video production, the slim SmartView Duo features integrated tally (input via a standard 9-pin D connector) that clearly shows video status by displaying a red, green, or blue ring that borders the screen in question.
The 800 x 480-resolution displays’ auto-switching SDI inputs accept an extremely wide range of digital signals, from standard-def 525i and 625i to full progressive high-definition 1080p60 and several flavours of 2K-resolution video. There’s a loop-out BNC for both inputs, with re-clocking of the signal. For screen configuration and settings, plus firmware updates, the SmartView Duo has both USB 2.0 and Ethernet inputs.
For the SmartView Duo, a sleek design pays practical dividends. The thinness of the dual-display panel (less than 1″) means it’s easier to install, transport, and ship. The lack of mechanical controls on the panel itself takes inadvertent adjustments out of the equation. The auto-image-flip feature means that the displays can be rotated upside down so you can achieve the best viewing angle.
