The IQUDC33 provides two channels of multirate format conversion and AES embedding and de-embedding for 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals. Using high quality motion adaptive de-interlacing and flexible scaling technology the IQUDC33 is a broadcast quality conversion module able to handle a wide variety of common applications such as up-conversion for SD content repurposing on HD channels, or down conversion to maintain SD output feeds.
IQUDC33 includes frame synchronizers, capable of referencing to a SD bi-level or HD tri-level reference and a variable aspect ratio converter with reading and writing of WSS, VI and 2016 AFD signalling. Audio handling includes 8 user configurable AES inputs or outputs, shared between the video channels, plus audio channel routing, delay adjustment and level controls. Video metadata such as timecode, closed captions and teletext captions can also be passed through the module or processed according to the required output standard.
To allow the module to be further tailored to system requirements software options are available to provide noise reduction and side-bar keying, and versions are available with SFP cages enabling fiber conversion or additional electrical outputs on HDBNCs.
High-quality up/down/crossconversion including conversion aperture control
Frame synchronizer with HD tri-sync/SD bi-level reference input and input loss detection
Aspect ratio conversion including preset ARC maps relative to conversion modes, selectable pan, tilt, aspect, size, and output crop adjustments
Aspect ratio control (signaling reading and writing) using ETSI WSS and AFD Video Index signaling (RP186, SMPTE ST 2016)
Video processing features include: gain, offset, hue, horizontal and vertical picture enhancement, and RGB gamut legalization
Metadata support — Closed caption passing or processing for CEA608/708 and OP42/OP47/WST captions, and VITC or SMPTE ST 12 timecode translation
Additional processing options including; noise reduction (adaptive spatial and recursive), side-bar keying and linear frame rate conversion
8 AES audio I/O, balanced or unbalanced, available to/from any processed internal pair, and audio processing features including: channel routing, gain, invert, delay and eight internal tone generators
Processing for 16 channels of embedded audio present on the incoming SDI stream with no disturbance during video synchronizer frame wraps or drops
Non-PCM processing features pair level routing and delay compensation. Dolby-E data is passed with a delay to match the video and with co-timed audio frame drop or repeat
Dolby E support — Detection of PCM/non-PCM audio to SMPTE ST 337/338, pair routing and Dolby E header re-alignment
Built-in test pattern generator and 19 character scrolling caption generator
