Overview
The high quality FC-49 DVI / Audio to HDMI Converter accepts a DVI
input and an audio input (analog, optical or digital), and combines both these
A/V signals into an HDMI output.
In particular, the FC-49:
• Adds HDMI output capability to your DVI source so that, for
example, an HDMI television can be used with your DVI source 1
with sound
• Supports an operation frequency of up to 1.65Gbps per graphic
channel
• Features I-EDIDPro™ Kramer Intelligent EDID Processing™, an
intelligent EDID handling and processing algorithm that ensures
Plug and Play operation for HDMI systems
• Features input format auto detection: digital RGB or YPbPr
• Features audio input auto detection 2
• Is 12V DC supplied
• Is HDCP compliant
3.1
About HDCP
The High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) standard
(developed by Intel), protects digital video and audio signals transmitted
over DVI or HDMI connections between two HDCP-enabled devices to
eliminate the reproduction of copyrighted material. To protect copyright
holders (such as movie studios) from having their programs copied and shared,
the HDCP standard provides for the secure and encrypted transmission of
digital signals.
3.2
Defining EDID
The Extended Display Identification Data (EDID 3) is a data-structure,
provided by a display, to describe its capabilities to an HDMI source. The
EDID enables the FC-49 to “know” what kind of display is connected to the
output. The EDID includes the manufacturer’s name, the product type, the
timing data supported by the display, the display size, luminance data and
(for digital displays only) the pixel mapping data.
1 For example, the DVI source can also be the DVI graphics output of a PC as well as its audio signal
2 If an analog signal is not detected, the digital input (S/PDIF) is selected. If both analog and digital signals are not detected,
the machine selects the optical input (TOSLink)
3 Defined by a standard published by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA)

About HDMI
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an uncompressed
all-digital 1 audio/video interface, widely supported in the entertainment and
home cinema industry. It delivers the highest high-definition image and
sound quality. Note that Kramer Electronics Limited is an HDMI Adopter
and an HDCP Licensee. In particular, HDMI 2:
• Provides a simple 3 interface between any audio/video source, such
as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and video monitor,
such as a digital flat LCD / plasma television (DTV), over a
single 4 cable
• Supports standard, enhanced, high-definition video, and multichannel digital audio 5 on a single cable
• Transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel
digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future
enhancements and requirements
• Benefits consumers by providing superior, uncompressed high
definition digital video via a single cable 6, and user-friendly
connector
• Is backward-compatible with DVI (Digital Visual Interface)
• Supports two-way communication between the video source (such
as a DVD player) and the digital television, enabling new
functionality such as automatic configuration and one-button play
HDMI has the capacity to support existing high-definition video formats
(720p, 1080i, and 1080p/60), as well as standard definition formats such as
NTSC or PAL.
1 Ensuring an all-digital rendering of video without the losses associated with analog interfaces and their unnecessary digitalto-analog conversions
2 HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI
licensing LLC
3 With video and multi-channel audio combined into a single cable, the cost, complexity, and confusion of multiple cables
currently used in A/V systems is reduced
4 HDMI technology has been designed to use standard copper cable construction at up to 15m
5 HDMI supports multiple audio formats, from standard stereo to multi-channel surround-sound. HDMI has the capacity to
support Dolby 5.1 audio and high-resolution audio formats
6 HDMI provides the quality and functionality of a digital interface while also supporting uncompressed video formats in a
simple, cost-effective manner

Recommendations for Best Performance
Achieving the best performance means:
• Connecting only good quality connection cables, thus avoiding
interference, deterioration in signal quality due to poor matching,
and elevated noise levels (often associated with low quality
cables)
• Avoiding interference from neighboring electrical appliances that
may adversely influence signal quality and positioning your
FC-49 in a location free from moisture and away from excessive
sunlight and dust
