IQSYN50 3G/HD/SD Frame Sync

The IQSYN50 provides frame synchronization for HD-SDI at 3 Gb/s or 1.5 Gb/s, or SD-SDI 270 Mb/s with 32-channel embedded audio handling. Including two SDI inputs, agile synchronization and audio firewall features means the IQSYN50 is ideal for general incoming line applications. A video proc. amp provides complete control over the video levels and RGB gamut legalization, along with tracking audio delay to avoid disturbance around synchronizer wrap points.

FEATURES

  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI synchronizer with additional video delay up to 30 frames and auto change-over on signal loss conditions
  • Agile, router switching tolerant synchronizer operation with precision genlock adjustment allowing you to time any SDI signal to pixel accuracy with greater tolerance to mis-timed upstream SDI switching (up to ± 10 lines adjustable), ensuring disturbance-free picture output
  • Firewall for video and processed PCM audio to provide a continuous uninterrupted output
  • Reference input capable of detecting and referencing to a bi-level or tri-level signal and selection from either external input directly or from internal chassis reference bus
  • Connectivity: 2 SDI inputs, up to 4 SDI outputs, reference input, 8x GPI/O, relay bypass version with input 1 bypassed to output 1 on power loss or card removal
  • Dual SDI inputs with auto switching on predefined input state errors — presence, carrier detect and valid CRC/EDH status
  • Standards supported:
    • 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
    • Fiber to SMPTE ST 297-2006C
  • Able to pass all ancillary data with independent HANC and VANC blanking control (VANC blanking is input line selectable)
  • Card-edge LED status indicators and input loss detection — default output of black/pattern/freeze/mute, and input SDI CRC, EDH and ANC data checking and reporting
  • Video proc. amp controls including video gain, offset, hue, RGB gamut legalization and Y/C picture position adjustment
  • Processing for up to 32 channels (at 3G-SDI) of embedded audio present on the incoming SDI stream to remove audio disturbance around the synchronizer wrap and drop points, and provide tracking audio delay
  • Any group of embedded audio may be passed unchanged, processed or blanked, and handles Dolby E and PCM audio present in the same group
  • Built in test pattern generator, two caption generators and audio tone generator
  • 16x user memories, save/recall/rename, and up to 8 GPI/O ports
  • Full RollCall and SNMP compatibility, with up to 70 RollTrack destinations and triggers available for detected module states including: PCM/non-PCM audio, input loss/freeze and reference loss


Options

  • Single mode fiber optic transmitter and receiver options — including SFP HDMI output version to provide a built-in local monitoring output — rear option
