1-2 General Specification
PureLink’s AD-210 signal conversion UP/Down scaler product is a high performance
analog & DVI to DVI scaler that converts incoming analog RGB and YPbPr signal to DVI
signal. In addition to conversion, AD-210 is capable of UP/Down scaling DVI input
resolution as well as DVI output resolution. AD-210 supports the resolution from VGA to
WUXGA, 60Hz~85Hz.
With AD-210’s highest quality Sigma scaling IC, the transmission speed of massive HD
video data is faster than ever, as well as the processing speed of the incoming and
outgoing video signal.
For user’s convenience, the newly designed OSD (On Screen Display) menu option can
be easily reconfigure through the front LCD display of the AD-210

1-4 Main Features
*High Quality Picture – No Signal Loss and Support wide range of video
resolution
AD-210 is designed with one of the highest quality scaling IC which offers various
effective function, such as quickly and reliably convert analog (RGB & YPbPr) and
DVI signal to HD digital (DVI/HDMI) signal and put UP/Down the resolution on
both VGA&DVI input and DVI output port. At the same time, the digital noises that
may affect the picture quality will be eliminated. Due to the nature of the digital
signals and passing through multiple stages of connection, it is important to
eliminate the digital noises and boost the signal strength to preserve/enhance the
video signal quality.
*Signal amplification for signal reliability and long distance signal
transmission
AD-210 uses external DC 12V power supply adapter to be reliably operated and
also to run an internal chipset, which is designed to transmit high quality visual
signal to long distance. Up to 15M copper DVI-D single link cable can be used.
*Compact and Practical Design
AD-210 is designed compactly and practically, allowing users more ease and
convenience.
It takes 1 rack unit space.
*Auto EDID feature
In order to support the maximum resolution of connected monitor, an EDID data
of the monitor needs to be recognized by video source graphic adapter and
communicated with each other. But with PureLink’s AD-210 AUTO EDID feature,
the users can easily pre-save an EDID data of any DVI(HDMI) monitor. AD-210 is
capable of selecting your pre-saved EDID or 14 different EDID data which was
pre-programmed internal EEPRO Chipset of AD-120.
*HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) Compliant
AD-210 is fully HDCP compliant. Many video sources such as DVD players and
Satellite/Cable Receivers are HDCP encrypted. For these video sources to be
displayed correctly, HDCP compliant devices (e.g., TV, DVI Switch, distribution
amplifier) are required.
*DVI & HDMI Compliancy
AD-210 is in compliance with DDWG DVI 1.0 and HDMI v 1.3 Standard.
