GEN10 HD/SD Sync Generator
Features
The GEN10 is a cost effective and flexible SD/HD/AES sync generator. The GEN10 features 7 outputs including 2
groups of independently controlled SD/HD sync outputs and 1 AES-11 output. The SD outputs can be switched
between Color Black or Color Bars. HD tri-level sync can be switched between 19 different HD formats including all
that are in use today. The AES-11 output can be switched between SILENCE and TONE. All outputs are in sync with
each-other and are sourced from an accurate master time base.

House Reference Sync
Using genlock helps properly synchronize various pieces of video equipment so that issues with sync, timing
and phase do not occur. The GEN10 is an ideal way to synchronize a variety of post-production items since it
has multiple outputs and these outputs can be configured for either HD or SD formats.
In this example, reference from the GEN10 is being routed to a capture card breakout box, a VTR and a video
monitor in order to genlock all of the items.

HD10AMA
In some cases, a source device may only provide embedded digital audio, but analog audio monitoring is
desired. The HD10AMA can be employed to disembed digital audio and provide analog audio outputs.
In this example, embedded digital audio is being sent from a capture card breakout box to the HD10AMA and
then routed via the HD10AMA breakout cable to the analog mixer for monitoring. The HD10AMA could also
be used to route embedded audio to an analog VTR or audio recorder.
Note: For connections from the HD10AMA breakout cable to a VTR, no adapters are required. For connection
to most anlaog mixers, XLR to 1/4” adapters are required. XLR inputs on most analog mixers are designed for
mic level input, not line level input.

Features
The HD10AVA is a miniature, high-quality, audio/video, HD/SD A/D converter. The HD10AVA automatically
detects the video input format and embeds the audio inputs in the SDI/HD-SDI outputs. The HD10AVA is useful
for adding an HD/SD-SDI audio/video output to tape decks or any professional video equipment with analog
outputs. The HD10AVA is especially useful for adding HD-SDI outputs to most HDV cameras or decks by using
the component outputs of such devices. The HD10AVA uses a breakout cable for audio/video inputs and
provides 3 HD/SD-SDI on BNCs. NOTE: The HD10AVA does not up or down convert between HD and SD.

HD10AVA
Some SD and HD sources may only provide analog audio and video outputs. However, a SDI signal may be
needed for connection to a VTR or capture card with digital input. The HD10AVA acts as an analog to digital
converter for both audio and video sources and produces a SDI output.
In this example, analog audio and video is output from a prosumer HD camcorder and input to the
HD10AVA. The HD10AVA produces an SDI output with embedded audio that is then output to a capture
card breakout box.
Note: For connections to prosumer devices, the HD10AVA provides a dipswitch selection between consumer
audio levels and professional audio levels. If the HD10AVA were connected to an analog VTR, professional
audio level would be selected via a dipswitch setting on the converter.

HDP2 HD-SDI/SDI to DVI-D and Audio Converter
Replaces
Model HDP
Features
The HDP2 is a miniature HD-SDI/SDI to DVI-D converter for digital display devices, such as LCD, DLP, and Plasma
monitors or projectors. Using a very high quality scaling engine and de-interlacer, the HDP2 will automatically size 4:3
or 16:9 inputs to many DVI-D monitors. For appropriate monitor configurations, scaling is automatically 1 to 1—for
example, displaying 1920x1080 video on a WUXGA (1920x1200) monitor. The HDP2 will also automatically adapt the
input frame rate for monitor compatibility. In addition, the HDP2 provides 2 channel audio monitoring and a looping
output of the SDI input.
The HDP2 is designed for general monitoring, perfect for use in applications such as: General post-production
reference monitoring, Client monitoring, Presentation, Projection, Corporate displays, Kiosk applications ...and much
more.
The HDP2 also supports HDMI v1.3a Deep Color (with a DVI to HDMI cable). In the HDMI mode, Deep Color is
supported at 30/36 bits per pixel with 8 channel audio. USB connectivity allows for easy PC/Mac setup and field
upgrades.
Example
• HD-SDI/SDI to DVI-D
• HDMI 1.3a support (via DVI-D
connector), including:
- Deep Color 30-bit video (24-bit also
supported)
- 2 or 8 channels of embedded audio
• Automatically adapts to popular LCD/
DLP/Plasma monitors (and projectors)
up to 1920x1200 and 1080p
• High quality scaling engine for proper
display of 4:3 or 16:9 content—even
better quality than original HDP
• 1 to 1 scaling for appropriate monitor
configurations
• 2 channel RCA analog audio output
(user-assignable channels)
• HD-SDI/SDI looping output
