PicoLink Series ENC-291p

12-bit SDI to NTSC/PAL Encoder

The ENC-291p is a miniature SDI to NTSC/PAL encoder, which features 12-bit superior quality processing. It features automatic 525-line and 625-line SDI signal detection conforming to the SMPTE ST 259-C standard, and provides a NTSC, PAL, PAL-M or PAL-N composite output signal. It also includes a convenient built-in test pattern generator. This unit is very simple to install and to operate, and it is the ideal solution for monitoring applications.
