Universal 3G-SDI converter debuts26 January 2010
TV One has chosen ISE2010 to premiere its C2-2375A Universal 3G-SDI Converter.
Based on TV One’s CORIO2 technology, the unit provides bi-directional conversion between a variety of analogue and digital video formats, as well as advanced features such as seamless switching, picture-in-picture windowing, chroma/luma keying, integral audio switching and SD/HD compatible Genlock.
Inputs and outputs can be SD/HD/3G-SDI, DVI, composite video, s-video, YUV, YPbPr or RGB. Signal parameters of the incoming video may be adjusted as desired and the high resolution RGB/YPbPr output is also selectable as virtually and PC or HDTV resolution. The second DVI and analogue output can be sent to a different format and resolution if required.
The included key feature allows an image to be keyed over another and faded in and out and due to the 4:4:4 sampling format, precise keying at pixel level can be achieved. The mix mode permits seamless cut, fade or wipe transitions between input sources while the picture-in-picture function allows for one input to be inset into a window (of any size and position) on top of another full-screen video input source.
Variable zoom to 10x enlarges any part of an input image to fill the screen and position controls allow movement to any area desired. Variable shrink to as little as 10% is also available and allows fitting an image onto most displays.
The advanced Digital Flicker Elimination circuitry and high sampling rate ensures crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling reproduces high-resolution colours, says the manufacturer.
Temporal interpolation improves frame rate conversion by analysing and merging successive frames and the pixel level motion adaptive diagonal interpolation and noise reduction provides high-quality de-interlacing of PAL, NTSC and 1080i signals.
The 3:2 pull-down also guarantees proper 24fps film extraction from NTSC and 1080i sources, TV One promises.
