Using high-quality motion adaptive de-interlacing and flexible scaling technology, the IQUDC30 is a broadcast-quality conversion module able to handle a wide variety of common applications such as upconversion for SD content repurposing on HD channels, or downconversion to maintain SD output feeds.
The IQUDC30 includes a frame synchronizer, capable of referencing to a SD bi-level or HD tri-level reference and a variable aspect ratio converter with reading and writing of WSS, VI and 2016 AFD signaling. Audio handling includes audio channel routing, delay adjustment and level controls. Video metadata such as timecode, SMPTE ST 2020 Dolby, closed captions and teletext captions can also be passed through the module or processed according to the required output standard.
To allow the module to be further tailored to system requirements software options are available to provide noise reduction.
High-quality up/down/crossconversion for SDI video inputs including conversion aperture control
Frame synchronizer with HD tri-sync/SD bi-level reference input and input loss detection
Aspect ratio conversion including preset ARC maps relative to conversion modes, selectable border color and pan, tilt, size, and input crop adjustments
Aspect ratio control (signaling reading and writing) using ETSI WSS and AFD Video Index signaling (RP186, SMPTE ST 2016)
Video processing features include: gain, offset, hue, horizontal and vertical picture enhancement, and RGB gamut legalization
Metadata support — Closed caption passing or processing for CEA608/708 and OP42/OP47/WST captions, VITC or SMPTE ST 12 timecode translation, and ancillary data bridge for 7 blocks of ANC data passing
Built-in test pattern generator and 19 character scrolling caption generator
Additional processing options including noise reduction (adaptive spatial and recursive) and linear frame rate conversion
Processing for 16 channels of embedded audio present on the incoming SDI stream with no disturbance during video synchronizer frame wraps or drops
Audio processing features including: channel routing, gain, invert, delay and eight internal tone generators
Non-PCM processing features pair level routing and delay compensation. Dolby-E data is passed with a delay to match the video and with co-timed audio frame drop or repeat
Dolby E support — Detection of PCM/non-PCM audio to SMPTE ST 337/338, pair routing and Dolby E header re-alignment
16x user memories and two GPI/O ports
RollCall control and monitoring compatible with standard logging and reporting features
RollTrack triggers available for detected module states including: input loss and reference loss
