The 9950 is a frame synchronizer and an up, down and cross converter that supports 3 Gb/s, HD and SD SDI signals. Excellent for on-air use, the 9950 is equally at home in a 3G island, in an HD signal ingest installation, or in a production application. Embedded audio will have automatic delay compensation, dutifully retaining lip sync.

Upconversion

When configured as an upconverter the 9950 outputs 1.5 HD or 3 Gb/s HD video. All processing is performed on progressive signals at full bandwidth 4:4:4 for optimum signal quality. Aspect ratio conversion choices include: Letterbox, Anamorphic, Crop and Zoom.

Downconversion

When used as a downconverter, the 9950 has a 3G/HD SDI input and four outputs. The Aspect Ratio Conversion process offers Resizing and Repositioning with choices for: Letterbox, Anamorphic, Crop and Zoom. The 9950 automatically adjusts between 3G/HD and SD color space and gamma.

Cross Conversion

The 9950 provides cross conversion between formats, processing all popular variations of 1080 and 720, making it simple for every facility to ingest any type of 3G, HD or SD signal.

Aspect Ratio Conversion

The 9950 incorporates an aspect ratio converter for standard definition signals. Resizing and Repositioning includes choices for: Letterbox, Anamorphic, Crop and Zoom.

Picture Correction Controls

nput standard and frame rate are auto-detected. The 9950 automatically performs color space conversion. The built-in Proc Amp provides adjustment of signal parameters with controls for video, chroma, setup, hue.

Flexible Synchronization

An infinitely adjustable timing system genlocks to your house reference. The 9950 genlocks to either composite video (PAL or NTSC) or to Tri-Level Sync.

Metadata

Closed captioning is carried in data packets in the vertical interval ancillary data space. The 9950 properly translates between 3G/HD caption data and traditional SD captioning (line 21) so that closed captioning content is converted transparently between video standards and formats.

Audio Support

The 9950 supports four groups (16 channels) of audio embedded into the SDI stream. The internal processing disembeds the audio so that it can be processed independently of the video. When the video input and output are not synchronous to each other and the 9950 acts as a frame synchronizer; the audio content is appropriately sample rate converted to the new output sample rate. There is a compensating delay in the audio path to maintain lip sync with the video content. Additionally, delay is adjustable up to one second.

Automatic Aspect Ratio Conversion

The 9950 supports AFD (Active Format Description) to mark or identify the aspect ratio of the video content. These flags are generated at the output of the module, and they are read at the input. This allows the up and downconversion process to adapt automatically to material that is already in letter or pillarbox form in order to produce the most appropriate conversion.

Complete Control System

The 9950 can be used locally or controlled and configured remotely with Avenue Touch Screens, Express Panels, or Avenue PC Software. Alarm generation, configurable user levels, module lock out, and customizable menus are just some of the tools included in the Avenue Control System. SNMP support is provided.
