Sirius 800 AHP – Frame Synchronizer

The Sirius 800 AHP Frame Synchronizer provides synchronization for SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G signals. Each channel can be independently configured and controlled, and can be locked to any one of 4 references.

Synchronization is based on frame drop/repeat technology throughout. A line synchronizer mode allows short delay and switch line blanking, avoiding SMPTE switching line disturbances and providing true clean switched outputs.

Features

SD/HD/3G frame synchronizer with up to 14 frames of video delay per channel

Minimum delay line synchronizer mode to remove SMPTE compliant switching disturbances.

All 24 channels on a Video AHP Input module can process the video and embedded audio. Each video channel operates independently of all others. There are no specific timing constraints for de-embedding or processing of audio.

Embedded Audio Processing

Each audio processing block can:

  • Process each mono audio channel independently:
    • Gain (-72/+30 dB, mute)
    • Signal phase invert
    • 16 independent audio mixers, with a choice of original embedded audio, processed audio, or silence
  • Audio channel swapping (shuffling) – for each embedded audio channel, choice of ‘original’ audio, ‘gain/invert’ audio, or mixed audio
  • Audio is re-embedded before the video is passed to the video crosspoint
  • Extract up to 16 channels of audio per video input (SD, HD and 3G level A) and pass all de-embedded audio channels (including VUC bits) to the audio crosspoint
  • Four video monitoring outputs are available. These can be taken from a point before or after processing. Multiviewer outputs are available from after input processing
  • Monitoring and multiviewer signals contain embedded audio present at that point in the signal chain

AHP Embedded Audio Processing (S8AHP-VA)

Processing

Audio mixing:

  • Up to 16 mono channels per mix. Selectable from incoming video or separately routed audio
  • Gain adjustment range per channel
  • Silence or -72 to +30 dB in 0.1 dB steps

All 24 channels on a Video AHP Output module can process the video and embedded audio. Each video channel operates independently of all others. There are no specific timing constraints for de-embedding or processing of audio.

Video AHP Output modules select audio embedded in the incoming video signal, or audio from the audio crosspoint. This is then processed and embedded into the outgoing video signal (after processing, if required). Each audio channel can be individually selected, allowing a combination of embedded and routed audio sources to be processed and embedded

Sirius 800 AHP

Sirius 800 AHP is the most flexible platform for hybrid video and audio routing available. Additionally, Advanced Hybrid Processing (AHP) is the most flexible and powerful processing available in a router.

Sirius 800 AHP routers from Grass Valley allows any combination of signal formats and processing, with no limitations on signal timing or synchronization, and no compromises on redundancy, monitoring or expansion capability. This flexibility allows systems to be configured ranging from simple video-only routing, through to powerful hybrid video and audio systems (with any combination of embedded and discrete audio).
