A product that can perform multiple processing, conversion and utility functions across SD, HD and 3G SDI signals has been introduced by Evertz.
The 7815VPDA covers up/down/cross conversion, frame synchronisation, video/audio processing, coaxial/optical signal distribution and streaming encoding.
Darren Ward, senior product manager at Evertz, said, “In the past, multiple products would have been needed to perform all of the functions of the 7815VPDA.
“By packing this much advanced functionality into a single module we reduce cost, power consumption and rack space requirements while vastly simplifying interwiring.”
Frame synchronisation capabilities allow re-timing of signals while audio processing capabilities include stereo to 5.1 upmix, downmix, shuffling and Evertz IntelliGain audio loudness processing.
An on-board adjustable-bitrate MPEG2/H.264 encoder generates IP streams ideal for in-house IPTV and other monitoring applications.
