IQDMX34 3G/HD/SD 8 Channel Analog Audio De-Embedder

The IQDMX34 provides 8-channel analog audio de-embedding for 3 Gb/s SDI, HD-SDI 1.5 Gb/s or SD-SDI 270 Mb/s signals. Audio processing features include gain, invert and channel-level routing, while a video proc amp is also included in the feature set.

FEATURES

  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI de-embedder with 8 balanced analog outputs selectable from any of the 16 channels of embedded audio present on the incoming SDI stream

    • 3G-SDI to SMPTE ST 424/425 level A & B compatible
    • HD-SDI to SMPTE ST 292/274/296
    • SD-SDI to SMPTE ST 259-C
  • Features include independent gain, invert, mute controls, channel-level (sub-frame) routing, and adjustable delay for selected audio channels
  • Any group of embedded audio may be passed unchanged, processed or blanked
  • Embedded Dolby E support — pair routing and delay
  • Up to 9 frames of video delay and 2 seconds of audio delay
  • Able to pass all ancillary data without corruption inc. VANC metadata
  • Independent HANC and VANC blanking control
  • Input loss detection — default output of black/pattern/freeze
