Showing for the first time is the new Lynx Technik yellobrik CHD 1812, a self-contained HDMI to SDI converter with integrated frame synchroniser. With this brik, facilities can convert HDMI to HD or SD-SDI, such as sources coming from broadcast video cameras. A key feature of this yellobrik is the built-in frame synchroniser, which eliminates the need to purchase a separate and expensive frame sync unit. It is an ideal solution for any application that requires a fully synchronised SDI input from an external asynchronous HDMI source.
A flexible reference input allows the unit to be cross-locked between formats. It also includes full audio support and embeds audio from the HDMI stream into the SDI outputs with two external analogue audio inputs. The audio inputs can be embedded if required.
Lynx Technik will also show its new PVD 5840 FlexCard ‘one module-many solutions’ card, which is part of the Series 5000 product line. The PVD 5840 FlexCard is a 3G/HD/SD dual channel frame synchroniser with up/down/cross converter that also includes image processing functions for aspect ratio conversion, noise reduction, and RGB gain and life colour correction. It also includes audio processing functionality.
