The Selenio™ SEL-1FS1 and SEL-2FS1 modules provide single-channel and high-density dual-channel video frame synchronization with audio timing for 3G/HD/SD/3D signals. These modules are ideal for any broadcast, post-production, cable or mobile facility where processing and synchronization of NTSC/PAL, SD (480i, 576i), HD (720p, 1080i, 1080p) and 3D video and audio (embedded and/or discrete) signals are required.
The SEL-1FS1 and SEL-2FS1 can retime an I/O signal to a local station clock for the clean processing of all synchronized signals. Signal processing functions include processing amplification, color correction, clipping and logo generation/insertion.
The unique Rules Engine capability puts custom video and audio signal management into the hands of the user so that specially modified code does not need to be uploaded. Any video and/or audio input scenario can be detected with the user determining processing required for the output.
The single- and dual-channel SEL-1FS1 and SEL-2FS1 modules offer comprehensive video and audio processing capabilities, including control over the picture, embedded audio processing and audio tracking. These modules also provide full handling of the associated embedded metadata, with the ability to de-embed and re-embed audio metadata from external sources.
In addition, there are eight AES input and up to eight AES output ports, allowing for separate audio processing. Analog and digital audio expansion modules provide analog audio interface capability and additional AES inputs and outputs. Back modules can accommodate a dual-fiber SFP and two dual-fiber output SFPs.
The modules can be controlled remotely using the standard web server element management system, Imagine Communications CCS Navigator™ software, HTTP web server or third-party SNMP-based control applications
There is the capability to provide the output with or without OSD for the SEL-2FS1 dual-channel version with one input signal. In addition, the SEL-1FS1 and SEL-2FS1 modules are Q-SEE™-compliant, allowing for direct thumbnail monitoring when installed in a Selenio frame. For a dual-channel SEL-2FS1 module, one thumbnail is provided. If a second thumbnail is required for the second channel, a video expansion module can be added.
The Selenio SEL-2FS1 dual-channel video converter provides video and audio synchronization, proc amp, color correction, clipping and logo insertion.
Front Module Connectivity
The Selenio SEL-1FS1 and SEL-2FS1 frame sync modules are interconnected with the two controller modules for SDI and 100Base-T for control and monitoring. An analog reference is available from each reference input on the back of the frame.
Video and Audio Expansion
For additional inputs and outputs and increased functionality, simply add video and audio expansion modules to the Selenio SEL-1FS1 and SEL-2FS1 frame sync application modules.
When an expansion module is installed beside an applications module, an automatic connection takes place. The corresponding block diagram in the graphical user interface is updated, giving the user setup, control and monitoring functions. Video and audio signals are automatically connected internally over bidirectional high-speed busses, eliminating the need for external cabling.
