IQSYN51 3G/HD/SD Frame Sync with Advanced Audio Processing

The IQSYN51 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 processing. Including two SDI inputs with clean-switching functionality, agile synchronization and flexible audio processing features the IQSYN51 is ideal for general incoming line applications. A video proc. amp provides complete control over the video levels and RGB gamut legalization, along with audio processing features including AES embedding and de-embedding, Dolby E auto-alignment, audio delay, gain, invert, channel level routing and mixing.

FEATURES

Key Features
  • 3G/HD/SD-SDI synchronizer with firewall for video and processed PCM audio to provide a continuous uninterrupted output, and additional video delay up to 30 frames at 1080, 60 frames at 720 and 120 frames at 625
  • Agile, router switching tolerant synchronizer ensuring disturbance free picture output, 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)
  • Dual SDI inputs with auto switching on predefined input errors, and embedded audio source selection from input 1 or 2
  • 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 IQH3B chassis reference bus

  • Video proc amp controls including video gain, offset, hue, RGB gamut legalization and Y/C picture position adjustment
  • Processing for 32 channels of embedded audio present on the incoming SDI stream including synchronizer tracking delay (with no disturbance during video synchronizer frame wraps or drops)
