TSC 100
Transcoder and Standards Converter
Features
DESCRIPTION
• Video standards converter from PAL to NTSC or NTSC to PAL
The Extron TSC 100 Transcoder and Standards Converter accepts NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43,
PAL, or SECAM composite video or S-video signals, and converts them to NTSC 3.58 or PAL
composite video or S-video. The incoming video standard is auto-detected, and NTSC or PAL
output is selected using the front panel buttons. A high quality, four-line adaptive comb filter
performs the Y/C separation, virtually eliminating chroma noise.
• Inputs: Composite video on a BNC with buffered loop-through, S-video on a 4-pin
mini DIN with buffered loop-through
• Outputs: Composite video on a BNC, S-video on a 4-pin mini DIN
• Encodes S-video to composite video
• Decodes composite video to S-video
• Accepts NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43, PAL, and SECAM composite video or S-video
• Outputs NTSC 3.58 and PAL
• Factory aspect ratio presets for PAL and NTSC centering
• Front panel security lockout
• RS-232 serial control port
Input selection, standard selection, and picture controls are accessible on the front panel of
the TSC 100. The autoswitching feature allows any input to be selected automatically when a
video sync signal is detected, making the TSC 100 ideal for automatic routing and unattended
operation. Autoswitching can be activated or de-activated via RS-232. In addition, RS-232
allows the user to select full screen black or color bars as the output when no input is present
after being selected. It also enables users to select three factory sizing options for scaling
between NTSC and PAL video signals.
• Rack-mountable 1U, quarter rack width metal enclosure
• External universal power supply included, part # 70-777-01
