FS1 Front Panel Control
FS1 operation can be monitored and changed in a number of ways:
• Front panel control
• Remote web browser via Ethernet
• VTECS protocol via Ethernet
• SNMP monitoring (Simple Network Management Protocol)
Feature sets in each of the control methods vary, although the front panel and web
browser interfaces offer many of the same features.
The front panel offers the most direct control of the device, which is ideal for
machine rooms or wherever quick changes and status checks must be made.
Chapter 2, Controls and Indicators describes front and rear panel features in detail.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Remote Web Browser Control
Remote Web Browser Control
The FS1 internally contains an optimized web server that allows remote
monitoring and parameter setting via a network-attached computer running a
web-browser.
From a network-connected computer you can communicate with one or more
FS1 devices, even getting them to identify themselves via LEDs on the front and
rear panel (front: Identify, rear: ID).
Networks can be closed local area networks, a straight computer-to-FS1 cable,
or for greatest flexibility, exposed through a firewall to a broadband WAN.
The FS1 uses a standard RJ45 LAN connector, but internally the1 connection is
intelligent and communicates via standard “straight-through” CAT 5 ethernet
cables or null-modem (cross-over) cables with no configuration or strapping.
Note: Firefox and Internet Explorer 7 are the supported web browsers for FS1
control. Other browsers may work, but AJA cannot guarantee operation.
The browser GUI operation and features are discussed in Chapter 5.
SNMP Interface
SNMP offers remote network monitoring of alarm conditions. SNMP support
is described in Chapter 6.

Description
The FS1 features a very flexible architecture that allows simultaneous HD/SD
operation. There are three separate frame synchronizers in the FS1: a full up/
down/cross-converting synchronizer, a downconverting synchronizer, and a
standard HD/SD non-converting synchronizer. This architecture allows the
following functions:
• HD cross-converting with simultaneous downconverted SDI output
• Up/down/cross-converting with both the input and converted formats on
SD/HD SDI outputs (both synchronized)
• Up/down/cross-converting with dual SD/HD-SDI outputs
• Composite and S-Video outputs are always active (dedicated down-
converter for HD inputs)
For example, the FS1 can input 720p, and output both cross-converted 1080i
HD-SDI and down-converted 525i SDI (or 1080i in and 720p and 525i out).
The FS1 also allows the user to set the output format, and the conversion will be
automatic depending on what the input is. The FS1’s output format can also be
controlled by using the reference input (follows the reference input format).

Controls and Indicators
Controls and Indicators
When installing the AJA FS1 chassis, you’ll make media cable connections to a
variety of equipment. After installation, the front panel indicators will be useful in
monitoring what is happening on the system as well as troubleshooting problems
that can occur. Becoming familiar with the FS1 front and rear panels will simplify
installation, setup, and operation of the system. Use of the web browser user
interface and Remote Control Panel option are described in a Chapter 5.
On the following pages are front and rear panel illustrations with notations that
summarize all of the connectors and indicators. Detailed descriptions of each of the
connectors and indicators follow afterward.
Full installation instructions are provided in Chapter 3 later in this manual.
Note: The AJA FS1 should be plugged into 3-prong 100-240 VAC power before
you make connections to other equipment. The AC cords provide a path to ground
for accidental static discharge to protect system equipment. The FS1 has two fully
independent and redundant power supplies and will operate with one or both AC
power cords plugged into the unit. However, fault-tolerance exists only if both
power supplies are connected and plugged into separate branch circuits. Then if
power is lost on a branch or a supply, the FS1 will continue to operate on the
remaining circuit and power supply.
Warning: To meet safety regulations for leakage current and to achieve full
redundancy, connect the FS1 dual power supplies to separate branch circuits.

The alphanumeric display has two modes:
Status: Displays current machine status and/or error conditions. The status
display is enabled when you push the Status button.
Control: The control mode displays the menu structure for selecting and
changing/adjusting machine functions and parameters. The display changes
from status to control mode when you press a Select or Adjust button.
When the FS1 is powered up, the display will show an AJA logo and then the
status display.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Front Panel
Status Display
Pressing the Status button under the AJA logo pages through the eight status
displays. Normally, you'll be viewing the main status screen shown in a previous
illustration. It’s the default screen at powerup. Information contained in the
status display shows the current primary settings for the FS1:
• Input Format (upper left)
• Output Format (lower left)
• Selected Video Input setting (upper right)
• Selected Audio Input setting (lower right)
Input Format

For example, if set up to do a cross-convert from 1080i59.94 to 720p59.94
using embedded audio in and out, the display would look as follows:
IN 1080i59.94
SDI 1
OUT 720p59.94
SDI 1
If the selected input has no valid signal present, the FS1 displays IN No Input.
Note: If the input is incompatible with the chosen output format, the default
status screen will display the actual format, such as IN 525i 59.94. The video
format status screen, however, would be the default status screen at that point
(since the Alarm LED would be on), and it would display IN Incompat.
The other seven status displays are listed and described below:
The video format status screen shows the status of the active video input, the
output format, the genlock source, and the format of the reference signal (if
applicable). For example, if the Output Format is set to Follow REF, but
there is no valid reference signal present, the Output Format section of the
video format status screen will read OUT No Ref.
The sidebar status screen shows the main input format, sidebar input format,
output format, and sidebar input select. Any incompatibilities between
these formats are shown as Incompat.
The sidebar input screen always shows the detected formats of the main input
and the sidebar input—to help resolve incompatibilities.
The power/temperature status screen displays power supply and temperature
status. If a power supply is unplugged or an error is detected, the display top
line reads PS 1 OFF, PS 2 OFF, PS 1 Error, or PS 2 Error, respectively.
(When Power Supply Alarm filter (60.1) is set to Suppress; the display still
reads Power OK even if a power supply is unplugged.) If the FS1 internal
temperature threshold is exceeded, the display lower line reads
OVERHEATED and video output may be compromised. If the front panel
Alarm LED is lit, the reason should be evident if you check the video format
and power/temperature status screens.
9
10
The close-captioning status screen shows whether closed caption data is present on
the selected video input.
The AJA logo is displayed when no button activity occurs for 60 minutes.
The FS1’s System Name has been previously defined (how to enter/edit it is
described in Chapter 4, Parameter Menus, System Name 50.5).
Controlling the
FS1 Using the
Select and Adjust
Buttons
The FS1's control system is designed to be easy to use and remember. All
functions in the menu system are numbered for easy reference. Two pairs of up/
down buttons named Select and Adjust provide control. Pressing any of these four
buttons immediately puts the FS1 into control mode:
Select Adjust
To operate the FS1, use the Select buttons to select a function or parameter. Then
use the Adjust buttons to adjust the selected function or parameter.
The control display has two lines:
Parameter Number and Name
Current Parameter Setting
The top line contains a numbered and named FS1 parameter and or function.
The lower line contains the current setting.
The parameter Select buttons select a parameter to view or modify.
Pressing a parameter Adjust button changes the current parameter's value to a new
one from the FS1's list of choices—repeating the list if you continue to press
Adjust or adjusting a numerical value up or down. The exact choices displayed
will vary depending on the parameter. Adjustment choices made with the
Adjust buttons take effect immediately (except 1.1 Output Format which has a
1/2 second delay). In most cases, changed parameters will be stored into the
FS1’s non-volatile memory after the parameter remains unchanged for 3
seconds. Exceptions are the IP Address, IP Config, Subnet Mask and all SNMP
parameters; for these you must exit the selection to activate changes.
Holding down a Select or Adjust button continuously changes the choices
automatically with acceleration if applicable.
Pressing either a Select or an Adjust button while on the Status or Screen Saver
displays changes the display to the last remembered control menu.
Holding down both the Adjust (up) and Adjust (down) buttons—at the same time
will set that parameter back to its factory default value.
For some parameters, once the parameter is selected, the first Adjust button
pressed begins the editing. The top Select button then can be used to choose
the position (left to right) within the parameter being edited.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Front Panel
11
Holding down both the Select buttons at the same time returns the front panel menu to
parameter 1.1 Output Format. If you are editing an octet, string or other
parameter that requires a commit action (like editing a blinking IP address) and
you press both Select buttons, the edit will terminate (will not take effect and will
not be saved). On the other hand, if you are editing menu items that normally
take effect as they are edited (e.g. procamp gain), the edited value will take effect.
Note: Parameter displays and adjustment choices and values are described in detail
in Chapter 4.
Remote Control
Pressing the Remote button once results in a display showing how the FS1 is being
controlled. Pressing the button again cycles the display through all1control options:
LOCAL+REMOTE: Control is from the panel buttons, a web browser, or remote
panel (VTECS). The Remote button glows white.
REMOTE ONLY: Control of the FS1 is from a web browser on a network attached
computer or a remote control panel via the VTECS protocol (except for the
remote control function). The Remote button glows red.
LOCAL ONLY: FS1 control is only allowed from the front panel buttons (except for
the remote control function). The Remote button glows green.
Indicator
Descriptions
Indicators on the front panel are multi-state LEDs that light when a condition is
present. The following indicators are conveniently arranged in groups to show specific
subjects; these LEDs are also discussed on the following pages.
• Activity LEDs
• Power and Status LEDs
Activity Indicators
HD In—Shows that an active HD signal is detected at the previously selected input.
SD In—Shows that an active SD signal is detected at the previously selected input.
HD Out—Shows that an HD signal is being output.
SD Out—Shows that an SD signal is being output.
Aux—This LED is ON whenever a GPI input trigger is active if that GPI affects the
internal state of the FS1. If the associated GPI In parameter (36.1 GPI In 1
Response or 36.2 GPI In 2 Response) is set to No action, the LED stays OFF.
Proc Amp—Shows that the ProcAmp values are different from the factory nominal
values. If lit, the video passing through the FS1 is being altered according to
changes in ProcAmp parameter settings (it’s no longer at unity).
LAN—This LED will flash once whenever the FS1 is being controlled by a web
browser input or remote panel. Web browser actions that do not affect the
internal state of the FS1 will not cause the LED to blink.
Ref—Shows that the FS1 has an external reference video source applied to the Ref
connector.
12
Power and Status Indicators
Power 1—Shows that the FS1 #1 power supply is connected to AC mains power via
its power cord and is operational. Both the Power 1 and Power 2 LEDs must be
lit to ensure redundant power is available.
Power 2—Shows that the FS1 #2 power supply is connected to AC mains power via
its power cord and is operational.
Identify and ID—These two LEDs (one on the front panel and one on the rear) will
blink when directed to do so via the FS1’s Web browser interface Identify
button. This action is useful for identifying which FS1 you’re controlling when
there are multiple FS1 units in a machine room being controlled by a laptop or
computer. In the browser, simply click Identify and then watch for one of the
FS1s Identify LEDs to blink. The Identify LED on the front panel and ID LED
on the rear panel perform the exact same function. No matter which side of a
rack you’re facing, you’ll be able to see one of the LEDs.
Alarm—If This LED is illuminated, press the Status button to see a description of
the alarm event detected.
The Alarm LED may be lit because of a hardware failure, because of video
incompatibilities, or because of genlock loss. (Any of these conditions may be
filtered out using the Alarm Filters parameters.)
Note: Only having one power cord connected to the FS1 will cause the alarm
LED to light—this may be filtered with the Alarm Filters parameters.
Video incompatibilities may be deduced from the “Alarm Status” screen. When the
Alarm LED is lit, press the front panel Status button to go directly to the “Alarm
Status” screen.
Video incompatibilities that the FS1 may detect include:
Video Incompatibility Detected

available.
Notes:
1. In the case of 1080pSF/23.98 input—and when 1080i59.94 (or 525) is
selected as an output format, the FS1 automatically adds 3:2 pulldown to get the
correct frame rate. Similarly, in the case of 1080pSF/24 input, FS1 automatically
adds 3:2 pulldown to get the correct frame rate.
2. When passing 24 or 60 framerate video, the standard definition outputs will
not output valid video (the FS1 is not a framerate converter).

The functions of the FS1 Inputs and Outputs depend on the operational mode.
The operational steps are simple:
1. Select an output format.
2. Select the desired input.
All outputs are active all the time. If you select an output format first and then the
input source, the FS1 automatically performs up/down/cross conversion.
Audio embedding/disembedding is also automatic, according to the parameter
settings you’ve selected. For example, even though the input selected might be HDSDI with embedded audio, the analog audio output connectors will output proper
analog audio that has been disembedded from the serial digital stream.
Please study Chapter 4 Parameter Menus, for a full understanding of all the possible
FS1 settings.
Connectors
Connectors on the rear panel are arranged in groups for easy installation and
maintenance:
• P/S 1 and P/S 2—AC power connectors, each 3-pin (with Ground), one for
each independent power supply. Each power supply is autosensing from 100 to
240VAC at 50/60Hz. Only one has to be connected for FS1 operation, but
redundant operation is available only if both connectors are plugged into AC
power.
• AES/EBU Audio—8 digital channels in and out, two pairs per BNC.
• Analog Audio Ch.1-8 In/Out—8 channels of analog audio in and out via a
DB25 TASCAM-style cable (not supplied).
• GPI—connector providing dual isolated TTL compatible inputs and outputs.
The functions of each are selectable in software.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Connectors
• 10/100 LAN—RJ45 Ethernet connector.
• SDI In/Out—digital video with embedded audio. There are two input and two
output BNC connectors. The outputs are active all the time, although you must
specify the output format (and thus whether any conversion takes place). SDI 2
can follow the input (“bypass”)—see description on the following page.
• Component In/Out YPbPr/RGB—video, 3 BNCs for input, and 3 BNCs for
output. Component can follow the input (“bypass”)—see the description on the
following page.
• S-Video In/Out (Y/C)—one 4-pinmini-DIN for input, and one 4-pin mini-DIN
for output—see the description on the following page.
1
• Composite In/Out —NTSC/ PAL video, 1 BNC for input, and 1 BNC for
output—see the description on the following page.
• Ref Loop—reference video (looping), 2 BNCs.
• RS-422—DE-9 connector reserved for future use.
Each of these groups of connectors are discussed on the following pages.
Connector
Descriptions
8 Channel AES/EBU Audio Inputs And
Outputs
One BNC is provided for each of four pairs of
channels, both on the input and output: 1/2, 3/4,
5/6, and 7/8.
AES/EBU signals are handled by the FS1
internally as 24-bit digital.
Analog 8 Channel Audio
The two DB25 connectors, one for input and one
for output, support a TASCAM-style cable snake for
balanced 8-channel audio. Analog audio signals are
converted internally to 24-bit digital audio inputs
and outputs.
RS-422 Port
This DE-9 connector is reserved for future use.
15
16
GPI
A female DE-9 connector provides connection to external
equipment or circuits via an isolated TTL-compatible interface.
Appendix B contains a pinout and specifications for the GPI
connector.
LAN
An RJ45 connector provides a 10/100 Ethernet port for connection
directly to a computer or Ethernet hub or switch for connecting to a
LAN.
The FS1is compatible with CAT-5 straight-through or cross-over Ethernet cables,
automatically detecting which is used.
SDI Input and Outputs
BNC connectors are provided for two SDI inputs and two SDI
outputs. SDI video connections include embedded audio In/Out
(depending on your parameter settings).
The outputs are active all the time, although you must specify the
output format (and thus whether any automatic conversion takes
place). For example, with an SD-SDI input selected, you could set
the SDI 1 output to HD 720p for an upconvert, and then set the
SDI 2 output to “Follow Input” (bypass) to output the SD-SDI at
the same format/framerate as the input.
SDI provides the best quality 10-bit video input and output. If peripheral
equipment has a variety of inputs/outputs, use SDI I/O if it is available.
Component (YPbPr/RGB)
Connect SD or HD component YPbPr or RGB video
cables from a VTR, camera, or other source to the three
input BNCs. Then connect the YPbPr or RGB output
BNCs to your destination component device.
Component video signals are A/D (input) and D/A
(output) converted (10-bit). Like the SDI 2 output,
Component can be set to Bypass (follow input). Output is
affected by the 5.3 Aspect Ratio and 1.3 Component Out
parameter settings (see Chapter 4 for discussion of these parameters).
S-Video (Y/C)
S-Video input and output female 4-pin mini-DINs provide for connection
of desktop video/prosumer level equipment, including camcorders, VCRs/
VTRs, and monitors, to name a few. Use high quality shielded S-Video
cables when making connections.
S-video signals are converted internally to 10-bit digital. Output is affected
by 5.3 Aspect Ratio and 1.3 Component Out parameter settings (see Chapter
4 for discussion of these parameters).
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Connectors
Composite NTSC/PAL
BNC connectors support composite NTSC or PAL standard definition
input and output. Connect an NTSC or PAL composite video cable from a
VTR, Camera, or other source to the Composite In BNC. Then connect the
Composite Out BNC to a destination composite video device.
Composite video signals are 10-bit A/D (input) and D/A (output)
converted. Output is affected by 5.3 Aspect Ratio and 1.3 Component Out parameter
settings (see Chapter 4 for discussion of these parameters).
Reference Video (looping)
These two BNC connectors allow you to synchronize FS1 outputs to
1 your
house reference video signal (blackburst or composite sync for SD, or Trilevel for HD). If you have a sync generator or video equipment source to use
for synchronizing other video equipment in your studio, connect its
composite output here. When the FS1 outputs video, it locks to this
reference signal. Reference video does not need to be the same format as the
video input/outputs, but it must have the same vertical rate (for example,
1080i Tri-level reference video will work for 525 video input and output).
Examples of permissible reference video signals:
• 525 Color Black
• 625 Color Black
• 1080i Tri-level Sync
• 720p Tri-Level Sync

Warning!
Do not open the chassis. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Opening the chassis
will void the warranty unless performed by an AJA service center or licensed facility.
Warning!
Disconnect the external AC power supply line cord(s) from the mains power before
moving the unit.
Warning!
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized
plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two
blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for
your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
Warning!
Since the Mains plug is used as the disconnection for the device, it must remain readily
accessible and operable.
Warning!
Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the device.

Warning!
To meet safety regulations for leakage current, connect the FS1 dual power supplies
to separate branch circuits.
Warning!
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the
device has been damaged in any wav, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the device, the device has been
exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
All of the steps of installation and configuration are documented in this chapter,
summarized as follows:
1. Unpack the shipping box, removing the FS1 and two power cords.
2. Connect the FS1 to power, connecting the two power cords to mains AC.
If you plan to use remote control of the FS1, ensure you have an
Ethernet cable routed to where the FS1 will be placed. It can be
connected over a LAN or attached directly to a locally attached
computer. Ensure that the computer (whether communicating over a
LAN or directly to the FS1 Ethernet port) has a web browser installed.
If the FS1 will be attached to a LAN, talk to your IT administrator and
obtain the details about how to configure the FS1 (DHCP or static IP,
explained in this chapter).
The following figure shows typical LAN connections, although your
installation may differ.
3. If connecting to a network, configure the FS1 IP CONFIG, IP ADDR,
IP MASK, and IP GATEWAY parameters according to the information
obtained from your IT administrator in the last step. Connect it to the
LAN. From a network attached computer or one directly connected to
the FS1, “ping” the FS1 (explained later in this chapter).
4. Mount the physical chassis as desired: front rack, rear rack, or
deskmount. If you are mounting multiple FS1 units, try to place them
visually in the same area so if you communicate with them via a
network attached computer, you can use the FS1’s Identify feature to
turn ON the corresponding LED of the FS1 you’re communicating with.
5. Cable the system audio and video sources, VTR(s), monitors, and audio
equipment.

FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Mounting the FS1 Chassis
23
Mounting the FS1 Chassis
Physical
Requirements
You can locate your chassis in two ways:
• Rackmounting—attach the FS1 (rear or front mounted) to a standard 19-inch
wide equipment rack. The chassis occupies only one vertical rack unit.
• Desktop—lay it on a horizontal flat surface.
Chassis Dimensions
When planning the equipment location, consider the chassis dimensions:
1
Height—1 rack unit, 1.75 inches (4.445 cm)
Depth—12 inches (30.48 cm)
Width—17.25 inches (43.8 cm)
Connecting to a Network
You can network the FS1 directly to a laptop or other desktop computer using a single
Ethernet cable (straight or cross-over), or connect it to a local area network (LAN). In
either case, the FS1 connects via its 10/100Base-TX Ethernet connector. A LAN is a
shared network that includes other Ethernet devices all attached via a hub or digital
switch. LANs may be divided into zones separated by software or hardware routers.
Routers may also be used to connect the LAN to an outside wide area network
(WAN) such as the internet.
Devices on a LAN have IP addresses which may be fixed and permanent, or
dynamically assigned by the network (DHCP). When attaching the FS1 to a LAN,
talk to your network administrator to find out how they want it connected (static IP
or DHCP). Your IT department will be able to supply the information you need to
install the FS1 on a LAN.
TCP/IP Information
You ll Need
If your LAN has a DHCP server that assigns IP addresses dynamically, then you don’t
have to configure anything (the FS1 defaults to DHCP). If for some reason your IT
administrator prefers an assigned IP address that is fixed (static IP), then get the IP
address—you’ll be entering it in the “IP CONFIG parameter” of the FS1. If your
LAN requires static IP addresses, also ask your IT administrator for the Subnet Mask
and default gateway IP address (your LAN’s internet router). The following two topics
discuss two different ways to set up the FS1: via DHCP or via a static IP address.
24
Networking the
FS1 via DHCP
The FS1 default configuration (from the factory) automatically looks for a DHCP
server to issue an IP address. So, as long as your network has a DHCP server
(usually part of your router), all you need to do is plug the FS1 into the network.
Network configuration happens automatically.
If you prefer to manually select DHCP, use the Select buttons to navigate to
parameter 50.1 IP CONFIG, and use the Adjust buttons to select DHCP. That’s it!
Here are the steps to communicate with the FS1 after choosing the DHCP
selection:
1. Use the Select buttons to navigate to parameter 50.2. Note on a piece of
paper the DHCP-supplied IP address shown.
2. With your laptop or desktop computer connected to the same LAN as the
FS1 and DHCP enabled, type the IP address you noted in step 1 into the
browser address bar. You should now see the FS1’s browser status screen.
If the FS1 cannot get an address from the DHCP server on the LAN while the FS1
is set to DHCP via parameter 50.1, the FS1 will automatically drop back to a preset
factory IP address of 192.168.0.2. In this instance you can follow these alternate
steps to communicate with the FS1:
1. Set the computer’s Ethernet IP address to 192.168.0.n (where n is not 2).
2. Set the computer’s Subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 (most PCs default to the
proper netmask when the address is set).
3. Run a browser on the computer and type “192.168.0.2” (the factory
fallback IP address). You should now see the FS1’s browser status screen.
Note: If the FS1 fails to find a DHCP server via its network connection, it will fall
back to using the factory default static IP of 192.168.0.2—or whatever IP address
you’ve previously defined. AJA recommends you define a Static IP address with
parameter 50.2 so you’ll be prepared in the event your DHCP server fails.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Connecting to a Network
Networking the
FS1 using a Static
IP Address
To set a static IP address for the FS1’s IP address, you’ll need to make some simple
Parameter Menu selections. The illustration below shows the four menu selections
you need to make while entering the information provided to you by your IT
administrator.
1
Note: for parameters 50.2,
50.3, and 50.4, you will be
setting IP addresses that
consist of “octets” separated
by a period (i.e., 90.0.180.0).
For these parameters, the
Select button selects the
octet and then the Adjust
buttons select the desired
number. Pressing Select
again advances to the next
octet. At the final octet, the
address will flash—pressing
Select at that point confirms
the setting.
Configuring the FS1 with a Static IP Address
25
26
Networking the
FS1 using the
Factory Default IP
If you don’t want to use DHCP to network the FS1 and also don’t want to set your
own static IP address, you can simply use a Default setting to use a factory setting of
10.65.74.65. This might be useful for an application where you directly connect a
laptop or computer to the FS1 and want to get your networking connection
operating quickly. Here are the steps to set up this method of communication:
1. Use the Select buttons to navigate to parameter 50.1 IP CONFIG, and then
use the Adjust buttons to select Default.
2. Set your laptop or desktop computer Ethernet IP address to 10.m.n.m
(where m is not 65 and n is not 74).
3. Also on the computer, set the Subnet mask to 255.0.0.0 (most PCs default
to the proper netmask when the address is set, so you may not have to do
anything here).
4. Run a browser on the computer and type “10.65.74.65” (the Default
factory IP address). You should now see the FS1’s browser status screen.
Using Ping to Test the Network Connection
After setting the IP address and other TCP/IP settings and connecting the FS1’s
Ethernet connection to a LAN or directly to a computer, ping the FS1 to ensure
that you have a valid connection. Simply run the Ping utility from a Mac OS X or
Windows PC computer attached directly or on the same LAN as the FS1:
Mac Ping
Procedure
1. Find the Applications Folder, and then find the Utilities Folder inside of
the Applications Folder.
2. Locate the “Terminal” utility application and double-click it.
3. On the FS1, go to parameter menu 50.2 and read the IP address.
4. At the terminal prompt, enter “ping” and the IP address noted in step 3.
For example: ping 192.168.0.2
5. If successful, the ping utility will respond that packets were sent, received
and how long it took. For example:
64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.590 ms
6. If unsuccessful, check the FS1 network settings and resolve the problem
with your IT administrator.
Windows PC Ping
Procedure
1.
2.
3.
4.
From the Start button, select the All Programs menu.
Select Accessories/Command Prompt from the All Programs list.
On the FS1, go to parameter menu 50.2 and read the IP address.
From the Command Prompt utility’s prompt, enter “ping” and the IP
address noted in step 3. For example: ping 192.168.0.2
5. If successful, the ping utility will respond that packets were sent, received
and how long it took. For example:
64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.590 ms
6. If unsuccessful, check the FS1 network settings and resolve the problem
with your IT administrator.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Controlling with a Web Browser
Controlling with a Web Browser
To control the FS1 from a web browser on a network attached computer, enter the
FS1 IP address as a URL in the browser. For example, if the FS1 IP address were
“90.0.6.31”, you would then type into the web browser: http://90.0.6.31. This topic
is explained in greater detail in Chapter 5: Browser Remote Control.
Note: The webUI (GUI) will keep up with (most) network changes (IP address and
netmask) initiated at the GUI. On the other hand, the webUI may not reconnect to
the FS1 when network changes are initiated at the FS1 Front Panel. The browser may
or may not time out and display "Disconnected". To manually reestablish the webUI
connection, type in the new address, if the IP address has changed, or click the Refresh
1
button on the web browser.
Installing The Latest Software
Although the FS1 comes from the factory pre-installed with software, it may not be as
up-to-date as software posted on our AJA website. This topic describes the steps
required to upgrade the software in your AJA FS1.
Download the
Latest FS1
Software
Current and past releases of FS1 software are available on the World Wide Web from
AJA's website. To get the software, point your browser to:
http://www.aja.com/support/converters/converters-fs1.php
This link is also available at the bottom of the Update Firmware screen (discussed later
in this chapter). Once you’re at the update page, you can select FS1 software files to
download to your Mac or PC for upgrading your local FS1 machine.
Unpack the
Software
FS1 software update files are “ZIP” files that you can open with a number of standard
and third party uncompressor applications. The software image that you’ll install on
the FS1 is a file with a name like fs1_ver_2.2.0.10.bin or similar.
Note: Depending on your PC or Mac operating system settings, the “.bin” extension
may not be visible to you in a file directory.
27
28
Uploading and
Installing the
Software to the
FS1
Uploading and installing the software update requires a PC or Mac that can “see”
the FS1 via its ethernet connection. Follow this procedure to install the software:
1. Click the Update Firmware link at the bottom of the navigation box on the
left-hand side of any FS1 web page.
Browse
Button
Click
First
2. Click the Browse... button to select the downloaded file. For example:
fs1_ver_2.2.0.10.bin contained in the zipfile downloaded from AJA.
3. Click the OK button in the dialog box that appears, asking if you want to
upload the firmware. The file you select uploads to the FS1.
4. Click the Commit Uploaded Firmware button to commit the firmware to
FS1 flash memory, or click Cancel to abandon the update. Wait for the
procedure to complete—it will take only a few minutes.
5. Click the Restart FS1 With New Firmware button to restart your FS1.
6. After restarting, the FS1 is running the new software and your existing
FS1 configuration prior to the upgrade is preserved. Check the FS1 web
page again to make sure the software version is displayed at the top of all
FS1 web screens. If not, run the update steps again.
Notes:
On some browsers, the Retry page may appear even though the upgrade was
successful. If this occurs, refresh the web page and check for the version number
at the top of the page, indicating the upgrade was successful. If the old version
appears, click Retry. Occasionally, it may be necessary to clear the browser
history and re-enter the address before the browser connects with the FS1.
If there is a power outage or glitch during the software download, the FS1 will
boot the older software version and you can restart the upgrade process. The FS1
has been designed with a safety feature where an internal “safe” copy of the
previous software is retained in the event the updating process fails.

GPI Connector Pinout
The GPI inputs and outputs are electrically isolated from the power and ground on
the FS1 frame. There are two inputs and two outputs. Electrical isolation is provided
for up to two pieces of external equipment. The following guidelines apply to the two
GPI inputs and outputs:
• Input 1 and Output 1 share a common isolated ground on pins 6 & 8 (I/O
Ground 1).
• Input 2 and Output 2 share a common isolated ground on pins 7 & 9 (I/O
Ground 2).
• Pin 5, local chassis ground, may only be used as a reference when isolation is not
required.
• Both GPI inputs are internally pulled high through a 10K ohm resistor to an
isolated 5V supply, so that a relay contact closure or any device sinking at least
0.4 mA to ground will register a logic low.
• Both GPI outputs are 5V TTL compatible, sourcing up to 6mA and sinking up
to 4mA each.
Cabling the System
Where to Place the
FS1
Observe these precautions when placing your FS1:
• Plan adequate space for cable routing from the back of the chassis. Ensure that
cable connectors are not stressed and that cables are not bent or crimped.
• When rack mounting or stacking multiple FS1 chassis, ensure there is adequate
airspace for cooling around the FS1 units. Note the location of cooling vents on
all equipment next to the FS1 and ensure none are obstructed.
Note: FS1 units earlier than serial number 2F0482 should not be stacked more than
two together; later units can be stacked vertically without limit as long as there is
adequate cool air supply around the FS1 vents.

Power
Requirements
• Input Voltage—Chassis: autosensing 100VAC to 240VAC, 50/60Hz,
fully redundant with both power supplies diode isolated
• Power Consumption—25 Watts
Hazard Warning!
High Voltage. This situation or condition can cause injury due to electric shock.
Warning!
Do not open the chassis. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Opening the chassis
will void the warranty unless performed by an AJA service center or licensed facility.
Warning!
Disconnect the external AC power supply line cord(s) from the mains power before
moving the unit.
Warning!
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized
plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two
blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for
your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
Warning!
Since the Mains plug is used as the disconnection for the device, it must remain readily
accessible and operable.
Warning!
Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the device.
Warning!
To meet safety regulations for leakage current, connect the FS1 dual power supplies to
separate branch circuits.
Warning!
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the device
has been damaged in any wav, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has
been spilled or objects have fallen into the device, the device has been exposed to rain or
moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
System Video/
Audio Cable
Connections
When installing your system, you’ll make video and audio input/output
connections. These connectors are explained individually in Chapter 2.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Cabling the System
FS1 Audio Level
Choices Pro or
Consumer
Since the FS1 handles both digital and analog audio and can convert between the two,
it provides settings via the Parameter Menus and the remote web browser that allow
you to control the relationship between audio level in analog versus the same audio
level in the digital domain. The FS1 offers four settings to accommodate these
different audio relationships in both professional and consumer audio applications.
The audio levels listed in the following table are defined in reference to 0 dBFS (where
FS = full scale), which is the maximum level that can be represented digitally.
Note: the measurements mentioned here are made using a 1kHz sine wave.
FS1 Professional Audio Level Settings
1
FS1 Audio Setting
Meaning
+24 dBu analog = 0 dBFS SMPTE standard
With digital audio at maximum possible level
(before clipping), the expected analog audio
input level is +24 dBu, and the output will be
scaled to this level.
+18 dBu analog = 0 dBFS EBU standard
With digital audio at maximum possible level
(before clipping), the expected analog audio
input level is +18 dBu, and the output will be
scaled to this level.
+15 dBu analog = 0 dBFS
With digital audio at maximum possible level
(before clipping), the expected analog audio
input level is +15 dBu, and the output will be
scaled to this level.
FS1 Consumer Audio Level Setting
FS1 Audio Setting
Meaning
+12 dBu analog = 0 dBFS.
With digital audio at maximum level (before
clipping), the analog audio input level will be
+12 dBu, and the output will be scaled to
this level.
These levels are provided for consumer
equipment that outputs audio at levels lower
than the professional levels.
Note: In the consumer audio world, units are
often given in terms of dBV, so +12.2dBu is
equivalent to +10dBV. The standard
operating level then corresponds to -10dBV
(-7.8dBu). The "+12dBu" FS1 setting
provides consumer audio levels with
headroom.
How Do Audio Level Settings Relate to Nominal Levels?
Most users refer to audio levels at the Standard Operating Level for the U.S. and
Alignment Level for the EU—a level not at maximum level, but rather at some lower
point to allow headroom for audio to become louder without clipping.
In the U.S. most users use +4 dBu as their Standard Operating Level. This
corresponds to -20dBFS in the digital domain (20 dB of headroom, per SMPTE
31
32
RP-155), so the +24 dBu setting on the FS1 provides proper headroom levels for
digital and analog audio.
Most users in the EU use 0dBu as their Alignment Level. This corresponds to
-18dBFS in the digital domain (18 dB of headroom per EBU R68).
Correspondingly, the +18dBu setting on the FS1 provides for this relationship.
Alternatively, the FS1 +15 dBu setting provides safe headroom levels corresponding
to some German professional audio equipment.
Chapter 4:
Parameter Menus
Controlling the FS1 via Front Panel Parameter Menus
There are three ways to control the FS1: (1) remotely from a web browser, (2) using
a remote control panel, and (3) using the front panel Select/Adjust buttons and
Parameter Menus. This chapter deals with the latter—the most direct and allinclusive way to configure an FS1.
In Chapter 2 we discussed the panel controls overall, so ensure you’ve read and
understand that material first. In this chapter we discuss each of the Parameter
Menus and their use.
In each parameter screen the parameter number and name appear on the top line of
the display, and the parameter settings are shown on the bottom line of the display;
remember, the current setting is what is shown.
As mentioned in Chapter 2, you enter the parameter menus whenever you press the
Select or Adjust buttons. Here is the general format of the Parameter Menu display:
Parameter Number and Name
Current Parameter Setting
41
1
34
Pressing either a parameter Select or parameter Adjust button while on the Status
or Screen Saver displays changes the display to the last remembered Parameter
Adjust menu. If you’re already viewing a Parameter Menu, pressing
a Select or Adjust button causes a change to the next item.
Select Adjust
The parameter Select buttons to the right of the display select a parameter to view
or modify.
Pressing one of the parameter Adjust buttons changes the current parameter’s value
to a new one from the FS1’s list of choices—repeating the list if you continue to
press Adjust—or adjusting a numerical value up or down. The exact choices
displayed will vary depending on the parameter. Most adjustment choices made
with the Adjust buttons take effect immediately and will be subsequently stored
into the FS1s non-volatile memory if they remain unchanged for 3 seconds.
If a Select or Adjust button is held down continuously, the changes will begin to
happen automatically with acceleration, if applicable.
Pressing either a Select or Adjust button while on the Status or Screen Saver
displays changes the display to the last remembered Control Menu.
Holding down both the Adjust (up) and Adjust (down) buttons at the same time
will set that parameter back to its factory default value.
The remaining topical headings in this chapter list all of the Parameter Menus by
number and name. The number shows the order in the menu navigation system:
pressing the up or down Select button shifts you numerically up or down in the
order of their assigned parameter numbers. The name is what you’ll see in the
Parameter Menu display (for example, the first heading listed here is “1.1 Output
Format” which is exactly what you’ll see in the top line of the display when
viewing this parameter).
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — 1.1 Output Format
1.1 Output Format
This parameter defines the SDI 1 output format. Depending on other settings, it may
also apply to SDI 2 and the Component Video output.
1.1 Output Format
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Follow Input (Default)
Follow Ref
SD <sd_rate>
HD 720p <hd_rate1>
HD 1080i <hd_rate1>
HD 1080psf <hd_rate2>
Follow the format of the selected input.
Follow the format of the reference video input (Ref).
Select standard definition (available SD rates are listed choices).
Select HD 720p (available rates are listed choices).
1
Select HD 1080i (available rates are listed choices).
Select HD 1080psf (available rates are listed choices).
Notes:
1. Available rates that listed here depend on what has been chosen in the 3.3
Frame Rates parameter setting.
2. If the parameter 1.1 Output Format is set to Follow Ref, and the 6.1 Genlock
Source is set to Input, and the 2.1 Video Input is set to select one of the analog
inputs, then the output format will follow the input format rather than the
format of the signal on the Ref BNC as might be expected. (This combination
of settings effectively disconnects the Ref BNC.)
3. Changing the Output Format selection automatically selects new values for
H & V timing parameters (6.2 Output Timing H, 6.3 Output Timing and
6.4 Analog Output Fine). Each Output Format selection remembers its own H
& V timing settings.
1.2 SDI 2 Out Format
This parameter defines the output format on the SDI 2 BNC connector.
1.2 SDI 2 Output Format
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Normal (Default)
Bypass (Follow Input)
Standard Def
SDI 2 output follows the 1.1 Output Format parameter selection (both SDI outputs
are the same format).
SDI 2 output follows the format of the selected input.
The output from Downconverter 2 (see block diagram in Chapter 1) is always
standard definition.
Notes:
1. The output from Downconverter 2 (see block diagram in Chapter 1) is always
standard definition.
2. Bypass mode is not offered in these cases (3:2 Pulldown):
1080pSF/23.98 Input / 1080i/59.94 Output
1080pSF/23.98 Input / 525i/59.94 Output
1080pSF/24 Input / 1080i/60 Output
In these cases, Bypass mode behaves like Normal mode—the output is the
same format as the main SDI1 output.
35

1.3 Component Out
This parameter defines the output format of the Component Video Output BNC
connectors (Composite Out is a function of Input Format and the 1.3 Component
Out parameter setting).
1.3 Component Output
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Normal (Default)
Bypass (Follow Input)
Standard Def
Component output follows the 1.1 Output Format parameter selection.
Component output follows the format of the selected input.
Notes: Bypass mode does not work when the input is 1080pSF24 and output is
1080i60 (3:2 pulldown mode).
The signal type of the Component output (RGB versus YPbPr) is defined in another
parameter (3.2 Component OUT Format).
The output from Downconverter 2 (see block diagram in Chapter 1) is always
standard definition.
Notes:
1. Bypass applies to all analog outputs (Component, Composite, and S-Video).
When 1.3 Component Out is set to Bypass, Input signal format is 525i/59.94,
and 5.3 SD Aspect Ratio is set to anything other than Off, the Composite Out
and S-Video outputs will also bypass the Aspect Ratio Converter.
2. Setting parameter 1.3 Component Out to Bypass causes Composite Out to
bypass aspect ratio conversion (parameter 5.3).
3. As in 1.2 SDI2 Out, Bypass mode is not offered in these cases (3:2 Pulldown):
1080pSF/23.98 Input / 1080i/59.94 Output
1080pSF/23.98 Input / 525i/59.94 Output
1080pSF/24 Input / 1080i/60 Output
In these cases, Bypass mode behaves like Normal mode—the output is the same
format as the main SDI1 output.
2.1 Video Input
This parameter performs input video source selection for the FS1. Multiple input
sources may be present at all the connectors on the FS1 rear panel, but the active
input source routed through the FS1 will be the one selected here.

FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — 2.2 Audio Input
Notes:
1. Changing the Video Input selection automatically selects new values for Proc Amp
parameters (10.1 through 10.5). Each video source remembers its own Proc Amp
settings. This is referred to as Source Memory.
2. If 4.5 Audio Follow Video is set to On, then changing the Video Input selection will
also automatically select new values for all audio parameters associated with Audio
Follow Video (see the list provided in the description of parameter 4.5 Audio Follow
Video). Audio Source Memory is enabled only when 4.5 Audio Follow Video is set

4.4 Sample Rate Convert
This parameter controls audio sample rate conversion on input audio. On is the
default (audio is rate-converted and synced with video) and Off is a setting for use
when Dolby® 5.1 and similar schemes need to be preserved and the audio data passed
unaltered. Normally, set this to On (default). Set it to Off only if the following are
both true:
1. You want to pass digital encoded audio from either embedded or AES into
embedded and/or AES out.
2. You have the embedded or AES input genlocked to the FS1 output. In other words,
the encoded audio will not survive the frame-sync function (dropping or repeating
frames) so it needs to be set to lock to the input. You can lock to a reference only if
that reference is driving both the FS1 and the upstream source of the embedded or
AES input to the FS1.
Note: If parameter 4.5 Audio Follow Video is set to On, the Sample Rate Convert
selection is independently kept for each separate input: SDI 1, SDI 2, Composite, SVideo, and Component. If Audio Follow Video is set to Off, another Sample Rate Convert
selection is used.
4.4 Sample Rate Conversion
Parameter Adjustments:
On (Default)
Off
Description of Choices

4.5 Audio Follow Video
This parameter determines whether audio settings are remembered for each video
input.
Audio Follow Video applies to these
parameters:
• 2.2 Audio Input
• 2.11—2.18 Audio Map
• 2.21—2.24 Audio Map (Stereo)
• 4.2 Audio Delay
• 4.4 Sample Rate Convert
• 20.0 Audio Output Levels
• 20.1—20.8 Audio Level Ch (n)
• 21.0 Audio Output Phase
• 21.1—21.8 Audio Phase Ch (n)
Audio Follow Video does not apply
to these parameters:
• 4.1 Analog Audio Std
• 4.3 Embed Audio Out
Note:
Turning Audio Follow Video (AFV) On
results in the loss of the above settings. When AFV is
turned On, the source-memory settings are written
over the current settings. Turning AFV Off again will
not restore the original settings, but instead will result
in the source memory settings remaining in effect
until edited again.
4.5 Audio Follow Video
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Off (Default)
On
Normal operation. Audio settings must be made separately from any video settings;
they are not associated automatically.
The FS1 remembers the saved audio settings associated with the currently
selected input. Whenever an input is selected, the corresponding audio settings will
be recalled.
This allows you to set up specific audio settings for the different video inputs (i.e.,
perhaps the SDI 1 has a specific embedded audio channel mapping while the
component video input might always use AES audio input).
4.6 AFV Memory
Selecting this parameter and then pressing the up-arrow Adjust button saves the
current audio settings to source-memory for the currently selected video input.

Image is reduced slightly with aspect ratio preserved. Black is added top and

Automatically selects the best downconvert mode based on the input video's Active
Format Description (AFD) code. If the input video is not carrying an AFD VANC
code, the downconverter defaults to the mode specified in parameter menu 5.5
Downconvert AFD Default.
Note: Active Format Description (AFD) codes are carried in the vertical ancillary
(VANC) portion of HD SDI video signals, specified in SMPTE 2016 as
follows: “AFD information is intended to guide DTV receivers and/or intermediate
professional video equipment regarding the display of video of one aspect ratio on a
display of another aspect ratio.”
In the FS1 downconverter, the AFD code on the video input can be used to
guide the downconverter in choosing which mode to use to best display the
important content of the input 16:9 HD video on the 4:3 SD output. For
example, if the input AFD code is 10 (Full Frame), it means that the input video
has important picture information throughout the full 16:9 frame, so the
downconverter should use Letterbox mode to be sure none of the content is
cropped off. An AFD code of 9 (Pillarbox) says that the input video only has
content within the center 4:3 area of the picture (usually because it originally
came from an upconverted SD signal) so the downconverter Crop mode would
be the best choice. There are 16 possible HD AFD codes, of which 8 are in
common use. The FS1 does not process or use SD AFD codes.
FS1 AFD processing (passing, removing, and re-inserting) occurs based on the
setting of parameters 5.2, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7.

The FS1 does not insert an AFD code into the output. If the video input has an AFD
code and the FS1 is not up/down/cross-converting it, the input AFD code will be
passed through to the output.
If the FS1 is not upconverting or downconverting the input video, the input AFD
code is passed through. If there is no AFD code on the input video, a “Full Frame”
(8) code is inserted. If the FS1 is upconverting, the appropriate AFD code will be
chosen based on the upconvert mode.
The FS1 always inserts a “Box > 16:9 (center)” AFD code (4), which indicates that
the HD image has an aspect ratio greater than 16:9 as a vertically centered
letterbox within the 16:9 frame.
The FS1 always inserts a “Full Frame” AFD code (8), which indicates that the HD
image is full frame, with an aspect ratio that is 16:9.
The FS1 always inserts a “4:3 (center)” AFD code (9), which indicates that the HD
image has a 4:3 aspect ratio as a horizontally center pillarbox image within the
16:9 frame.
The FS1 always inserts a “16:9 (with complete 16:9 image protected)” AFD code
(10), which indicates that the HD image is full frame, with a 16:9 aspect ratio and
all image areas are protected.
The FS1 always inserts a “14:9 (center)” AFD code (11), which indicates that the
HD image has a 14:9 aspect ratio as a horizontally centered pillarbox within the
16:9 frame.
The FS1 always inserts a “4:3 (with alternate 14:9 center)” AFD code (13), which
indicates that the HD image has a 4:3 aspect ratio and with an alternative 14:9
centered pillarbox image within the 16:9 frame.
The FS1 always inserts a “16:9 (with alternative 14:9 center” AFD
code (14), which indicates that the HD image has a 16:9 aspect ratio with an
alternative 14:9 center within the 16:9 frame.
The FS1 always inserts a “16:9 (with alternative 4:3 center)” AFD code (15), which

6.2 Output Timing H
This parameter adjusts horizontal output timing with reference to the genlock source
already selected. When adjusting the horizontal timing (H), this parameter specifies a
number of pixels to offset, from zero to full line width.
6.2 Output Timing H
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Variable
Adjustment range increments from 0 to the width of the line in pixels. This could be
720, 1280, or 1920, depending on the format already chosen.
Default: 0
Note: Independent horizontal and vertical timing values are kept for all available
output formats.
6.3 Output Timing V
This parameter adjusts vertical output timing with reference to the genlock source
already selected. When adjusting the vertical timing (V), this parameter specifies a
number of lines to offset, moving the screen up to a half a frame up or down.
6.3 Output Timing V
Parameter Adjustments:
Variable
Description of Choices
Adjustment range increments from half a frame up to a half a frame down in single
line increments (where the frame size could be 525, 625, 750, or 1125,
depending on the format already chosen).
Default: 0

6.4 Analog Output Fine (Horizontal Timing)
Further adjusts the horizontal output timing of the analog output (only) in finer
increments than 6.2 (above)—in this case by sub-pixels. Each adjustment of this
control, from 0 to 127 adjusts the analog output timing by 1/128th of a pixel. Like
6.2, horizontal output timing is adjusted with reference to the Ref video selected.
6.4 Analog Output Fine
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Variable
Adjustment range increments from 0 to 127, with each increment moving the timing
by 1/128th of a pixel.
Default: 0
7.1 Sidebar Keyer
This parameter turns the Sidebar Keyer On or Off, and selects its source. When
turned On, the FS1 Sidebar Keyer takes a standard definition signal from the
selected input source (parameter 2.1), upconverts it, and then adds HD sidebars
from the source selected here in parameter 7.1.
The sidebars keyed over the FS1’s source video (2.1) will each have a width as
specified in parameter 7.2. Sidebar video is useful when upconverting standard
definition video in 4:3 Pillar mode, as the sidebar takes the place of the black on the
sides of the 4:3 aspect ratio picture.
The input selected here (7.1) for the Sidebar must be an HD signal, and it must be
the same format as that selected for parameter 1.1 Output Format.
Notes:
1. It is normal for SD sources used for the sidebar fill to sometimes have
asymmetrical edges (if SD video isn’t cropped to “real video”). This can be seen
in some cases where digital video was digitized from analog.
2. The Composite and S-Video inputs are not available as the sidebar source since
they only support SD.
The Component input may be used as a sidebar input source for 7.1—but only if the
main input selected by 2.1 is not Composite or S-Video. (There is only one A/D
converter in the FS1, and it cannot be used for both inputs simultaneously.)

FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — 7.2 Sidebar Edge
7.2 Sidebar Edge
This parameter selects the width of the sidebars when turned on via parameter 7.1.
Sidebar Keyer. The video selected in 7.1 will appear on the right and left of the active
video input (selected in 2.1). Sidebar Edge can be set to -128 through +128. A value of
“0” produces a 4:3 center. Positive values produce wider sidebars (and a narrower
center).
Alarm conditions occur if conflicting video formats are selected, such as the following:
• Selecting different formats for 1.1 Output Format, 7.1 Sidebar Keyer input
format, and the main 2.1 Video Input format
• Selecting analog inputs for both the main input and the sidebar1input
• Setting 7.1 Sidebar Keyer to On while in Follow Input mode (since the sidebar
keyer requires that the main input be upconverted).
When a sidebar-related Alarm condition appears, the sidebars will not appear on the
video output. The Status menu displays sidebar (SB) status information to help you
find the cause of the conflict.

In standard definition video (525i59.94), closed captioning data is encoded and sent
on line 21 of both fields, using a format defined by the Consumer Electronics
Association standard, CEA-608. This is traditionally called “line 21", “SD”, or “608”
captioning, and is used for analog composite, analog component, and serial digital
(SDI) video.
In high definition video, closed captioning is encoded and sent as Vertical Ancillary
(VANC) packets in SDI video, using a format defined by the Consumer Electronics
Association standard CEA-708 (there is no equivalent for analog HD video). This is
traditionally called “HD,” “DTV,” or “708” captioning. The data formatting and
encoding for 708 captions is very different from the data contained in 608 (SD)
captioning, reflecting the added features and capabilities available with the CEA-708
standard.
The FS1 UpConverter automatically translates incoming line 21 captions to CEA708 format and inserts the VANC packets into the converted HD video stream. This
is a complete translation from CEA-608 format to CEA-708 format (including the
embedded SD captions).
The FS1 DownConverters automatically intercept and reformat the SD caption data
in the incoming CEA-708 VANC packets, and output it on line 21 of the standard
definition outputs.
To pass closed captioning data to the outputs, parameter 31.1 UC Line 21 must also
be set to Pass. The FS1 CrossConverters will reformat and pass any incoming CEA708 VANC packets for the output frame rate.

FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — 35.3 Authentication
35.3 Authentication
This parameter determines whether password authentication is required in order to
make FS1 changes.
35.3 Authentication
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Disabled (Default)
Basic
No authentication.
User's browser prompts for a username/password for access to the FS1.
Notes:
1
1. AJA recommends using the Disabled setting, unless it is absolutely necessary to use
the Basic setting, since the authentication used is only as good as the underlying
network security. This is due to the password being sent across the network in clear
text. Security follows the “basic” authentication defined in RFC2617, which can be
read at this URL: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2617.txt
2. The default value is Disabled. It will be reset by a two-button hold down factory
reset, which will change this parameter back to Disabled; the single up button
factory reset will not (see parameter 99.0 for information).
3. Changing Authentication to Disabled will also reset the System Password parameter
to the default password, which is “password”.
4. If you select Basic without first setting the password (via web), the default
password will be used. See parameter 99.0 for more about the password.
5. After you select Basic, a password is required for webUI (browser) access to the
FS1. Passwords cannot be entered at the front panel but must be entered via web
browser. Your browser will prompt for a username/password. The FS1 ignores any
supplied username and uses only the password during authentication. If your are
prompted for a password more than once, please re-enter the proper password each
time.
6. In the web browser, changing this parameter will show/hide the controls for setting
the password.
7. If you are prompted for a password before you can set a new password, enter the
default, which is “password”. (Enabling the feature turns it on immediately,
requiring authentication for all traffic to/from the FS1.)

Chapter 5:
Browser Remote Control
Remote FS1 Control Via a Web Browser
An optimized web server inside the FS1 allows you to remotely monitor and adjust
parameter settings via a network-attached computer running a web-browser. The
network can be a closed local area network, a straight computer-to-FS1 cable, or
even exposed through a firewall to a broadband WAN (not generally recommended
since anyone on the internet can then access the FS1). The LAN connection on the
FS1 uses a standard RJ45 connector, but internally it’s intelligent and communicates
via standard “straight-through” CAT 5 ethernet cables or null-modem (cross-over)
cables without configuration or strapping.
Note: Firefox and Internet Explorer 7 are supported as web browsers for FS1
control. Other browser software may work, but AJA cannot guarantee operation.
To access the FS1, enter its IP address in the web browser. The IP address is
defined in parameter 50.2 of the FS1’s Network parameter menus—please note that
parameters 50.1 through 50.4 must all be configured correctly to access the FS1 on
your network. If the FS1 is using DHCP (the default), you can find the IP address
by pressing the Status button on the FS1 front panel until the Network Status display
is shown or you can go to parameter 50.2 and read it there. When the FS1 is
shipped from the AJA factory, the FS1 defaults to DHCP operation.
If 50.1 is set to DHCP, and the DHCP server on the network fails to grant an IP
address, the FS1 will fall back to the IP address set in STATIC ADDR (50.2).
If 50.1 is set to Default Addr, the factory default static IP address is: 10.65.74.65.
So, if 50.1 is set to Default Addr, you would type the following in the web browser:
http://10.65.74.65 to see the FS1 web interface Main Status screen.

General Screen
Information
All FS1 web screens have certain areas in common. On the left of each screen is a
navigational list of the available FS1 screens. Click any of these items to jump to that
screen. At the top of each screen you’ll also find a heading showing the connection status
and IP address in addition the FS1’s serial number and software version. This latter
information is useful if you ever have to call AJA Technical Support to discuss a problem
or get help. In the middle of each screen are menu choices and information pertaining
to the subject matter of that screen (i.e., the Audio and Video I/O screen has choices
about audio and video).
FS1 web screens closely mirror the parameter menus displayed on its front panel. In
each of the screens presented on the following pages, we’ll list the parameter menu
numbers that are related. Also, to make things easier for you to reference, we’ll list the
definitions redundantly here so you don’t have to flip back and forth between chapters.

From the Network screen, you can see at-a-glance all of the FS1 devices present on the
same local LAN as the current FS1 you are controlling. At the bottom of the screen
under Available FS1s—Click to Refresh, the system names of all FS1s on the LAN are
listed. Clicking on any of these will bring up the Status screen of that FS1. Note: the
FS1 you control may be running a different software version, so screens may look
different. As a rule, it’s wise to have all your FS1 devices running the most current
software and the same version. Also, you must have a properly configured default
gateway to see the FS1s.
Note: If the Default Gateway (parameter 50.4) is not configured properly, other FS1s
will not be visible here. If it displays No FS1’s found, check the gateway setting.

Resetting
Values To
Factory
Settings
FS1 web browser screens feature many user controls that can be reset to factory values by
simply “right-clicking” on the control, whether it be a drop-down menu or adjustable
“spinner” control. When you right-click a control, the browser will display a Reset to
Factory message that will cause the parameter to be reset.
Note: This only works with computers that allow right-clicking. Some models/brands of
computers and laptops may not permit this operation.
To perform a global reset of the FS1 to factory settings, go to the Miscellaneous screen and
click on the button at the bottom labelled Reset all FS1 parameters to Factory Values. (This
functions the same as the FS1 front panel parameter 99.0—another way to reset to factory
values.)

Audio Follow Video (4.5)—This parameter determines whether audio settings are
remembered for each video input.
Off (default)
On
Normal operation. Audio settings must be made separately from any video settings; they
are not associated automatically.
The FS1 remembers the audio settings associated with the currently selected input.
Whenever an input is selected, the corresponding audio settings will be recalled. This
allows you to set up specific audio settings for the different video inputs (i.e., perhaps
the SDI 1 input has a specific embedded audio channel mapping while the component
video input might always use AES audio input).
Audio Follow Video applies to these
parameters:
• 2.2 Audio Input
• 2.11—2.18 Audio Map
• 2.21—2.24 Audio Map (Stereo)
• 4.2 Audio Delay
• 4.4 Sample Rate Convert

Sample Rate Convert (4.4)
1
On (default)
Off
Normal operation. The FS1 performs audio sample rate conversion and keeps the video and
audio synchronized.
The FS1 does not sample rate convert the audio, leaving embedded audio as is, useful for
Dolby¤ 5.1 embedded audio and other applications.
Normally, set this to On (default). Set it to Off only if the following are both true:
1. You want to pass digital encoded audio from either embedded or AES into embedded
and/or AES out.
2. You have the embedded or AES input genlocked to the FS1 output. In other words, the
encoded audio will not survive the frame-sync function (dropping or repeating frames),
so it needs to be set to lock to the input. You can lock to a reference only if that
reference is driving both the FS1 and the upstream source of the embedded or AES
input to the FS1.
Audio Delay, ms (4.2)—This slider allows you to adjust the delay to compensate for video
timing issues (delay/latency). This slider changes the delay from -16 to 256 ms (the

Basic
Selects no password protection.
Selects password protection. When selected you will be prompted for a Name and Password.
Ignore the Name field, but enter the correct password to allow web access. The factory value
for password is password—if you select Basic Password you will have to initially enter the
factory password before you can enter a new password using the Set Password field below
Authentication. Once a password is entered, enter the same exact password in the Confirm
Password field and then click the Change Password button to the right of it. Please read the
“Notes” below.
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual — Remote FS1 Control Via a Web

FS1 Web Interface, Miscellaneous Screen: Authentication set to “Basic Password”
Notes:
1. AJA recommends using the Disabled setting, unless it is absolutely necessary to use the
Basic setting, since the authentication used is only as good as the underlying network
security. This is due to the password being sent across the network in clear text.
Security follows the Basic authentication defined in RFC2617, which can be read at this
URL: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2617.txt.
2. The default value is Disabled. Once changed to Basic, only entering the password or a
dual button factory reset will change this parameter back to Disabled, the single UP
button factory reset will not (see parameter 99.0 for information).
3. Changing Authentication to Disabled resets the System Password parameter to the
default password, which is “password”.
4. If you select Basic Password authentication, the default password will initially be used
(until you set a password with Set Password).
5. After you select Basic Password authentication, your browser immediately requires a
password before further interaction is allowed, as indicated by a browser dialog box.
The browser then prompts for a username/password for all access to the FS1. The FS1
ignores any supplied username and uses only the password during authentication. If
prompted for a password more than once, please re-enter the proper password each time
you are asked. Some browsers may store the password, which may require you to turn
off or clear password caching in the browser before you can use a new password.
Consult the browser help feature for instructions.
97
98
6. In the web browser, changing this parameter will show/hide the Set Password and
Confirm Password controls for setting the password.
7. You may be prompted for a password before you are able to set a new password. In
this case, you need to enter the default password. (This happens because enabling the
feature enables it with the default password already set to “password” and all traffic
to/from the FS1 needs to be authenticated once this happens.)
Set Password—the field used to enter a password (this field will not be visible if
Authentication is set to Disabled).
Confirm Password and Change Password button—the field used to confirm the password
entered above; contents must match, and the password will not be final until the
Change Password button is clicked (these controls will not be visible if
Authentication is set to Disabled).
Display Intensity (70.2)—Either by using the slider or by entering a value, you can dim
or brighten the alphanumeric display and activity indicator LEDs in steps from 1
(dim) to 8 (brightest).
Reset All FS1 Parameters To Factory Values (99.0)—As this button title implies, clicking
it will cause all current FS1 parameter settings to revert to the original AJA factory
values (except network settings—which are retained). Any settings you have made
to date will be overwritten.
Recalling factory defaults does not affect these network settings: IP Config, IP
Address, Subnet Mask, or Default Gateway. To clear network settings and recall
factory defaults, hold down both Adjust buttons at the same time from the FS1
front panel.

Network
Screen
This screen contains all of the information required to set up FS1 TCP/IP networking.
The screen also shows all FS1s that are on the same LAN as the FS1 the web browser is
communicating with.
Note: FS1 IP Address and netmask fields filter keystrokes and only allow legal
characters. The FS1 also checks the format of the entry to ensure it is valid; if found to
be invalid, the background of the IP Address or netmask will turn red. If you click the
Update button while an invalid entry exists in one of the these fields, the FS1 will
display an error dialog—you must correct the error before updating.
FS1 Web Interface, Network Screen
IP Address Type (50.1)—Use to change the IP address for the FS1. When you enter an
IP address and click the Update button, the FS1 IP address will change, and the
browser will display a “redirecting to...” page which should send the browser to the
new IP address entered. (You can also click on a link on the redirect page.)
DHCP (default)
Default Addr
Static Addr
Select automatic IP address assignment from DHCP server on LAN
Note: if the LAN DHCP server fails to grant an IP address, the FS1 will default to using
the static address (factory default is 192.168.0.2)
Use the factory default IP address: 10.65.74.65
Assign a static IP address manually (parameters 50.2, 50.3, and 50.4 will have to
be entered to accomplish this).
IP Address (50.2)—Enter an IP address compatible with your LAN (if you have one).
When you network the FS1 to a computer, this is the IP address that you’ll enter in
the computer’s web browser to bring up the FS1’s web interface from its embedded
web server. You must also click the Update button to update the FS1 with the IP
address entered here.

Netmask (50.3)—Enter a subnet mask compatible with your LAN (if you have one). You
must also click the Update IP Address button to update the FS1 with the changed
information entered here.
Default Gateway (50.4)—Enter the IP address for your LAN’s gateway/router (if you have
one). You must also click the Update IP Address button to update the FS1 with the
changed information entered here.
Update Network Settings—Pressing this button requests the FS1 to update its IP
information with what you have entered on this screen.
Available FS1s- Click to Refresh—All of the FS1 devices present on the same local LAN as
the current FS1 are listed below this heading (see note below). The serial numbers of
1 are listed—
all FS1s on the LAN, or their defined System Names (see parameter 50.5)
and clicking on any of these will bring up the Status screen of that FS1. Note: the FS1
you control may be running a different software version so screens may look different.
As a rule, it’s wise to have all your FS1 devices running the most current software and
the same version. Also, without a properly configured default gateway (whether you
have a router/gateway or not), the discovery feature, Available FS1s—Click to Refresh,
on the Network page may not work.
Below the FS1s listed are Others, which are other AJA devices. Items that may appear
here include AJA Ki Pro recorders and AJA KUMO routers.
Note: AJA devices shown are cached and may not reflect the realtime state of all devices
on the LAN. As FS1s and other AJA devices are added or removed from the network they
may take awhile to appear in the listing. If, at anytime you want a current view of the
network (clearing the cache and showing the realtime state), then press the Control key on
your keyboard while clicking the Available FS1s—Click to Refresh link.

SNMP Screen
This screen contains all of the information required to set up SNMP messaging to the
FS1.
FS1 Web Interface, SNMP Screen
SNMP Disabled, Enable 1 or Enable Both (51.1)—Select Enable 1 if you want the FS1
to issue trap messages to the defined trap 1 destination. To issue trap messages to
both Trap 1 and Trap destinations, Select Enable Both. Select Disabled (default)
when you don’t want the FS1 to issue trap messages.
Trap Receivers (51.2 to 51.5)—Enter the IP address of the destination where SNMP
command messages (called “traps”) will be sent (default is 191.168.0.3). This is
usually an SNMP client (“NMS” or Network Management System) somewhere on
your LAN. You must also click the Update submit button to update the FS1 with
the IP address entered here. A Port number for the TCP/IP port to be used for trap
messages from the FS1 to the NMS must also be specified (UDP Port 162 is the
default). Two sets of Trap Destination IP and Port numbers are provided so you
can send trap messages in parallel to two NMS.
Note: Illegal data, such as out of range addresses or text, entered on the SNMP web
page will generate an error page containing a message similar to the following:
Something is missing or out of range
trap IP 1:192.168.0.4
port 1: 162
trap IP 2: 0.0.0.0
port 2: 162
PRESS YOUR BROWSER’S BACK BUTTON TO CONTINUE

Chapter 6:
SNMP
FS1 Simple Network Management Protocol
SNMP is defined as a “simple network management protocol” and was specified as a
component of the internet protocol suite by the Internet Engineering Task Force
(IETF). The FS1 can act as a network element that issues SNMP trap messages
signalling a detected alarm condition or other system condition.
Before the FS1 can respond to SNMP requests, parameter 51.1 must be set to
enable SNMP communication.
51.1 SNMP Enable
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
Disable (Default)
Enable 1
Enable Both
When set to Disable, the FS1 will not issue SNMP trap messages.
When set to Enable 1, the FS1 issues SNMP trap messages to Trap Destination 1
(parameter 51.2) and as defined in the MIB.
When set to Enable Both, the FS1 issues SNMP trap messages to Trap Destination
1 and 2 (parameters 51.2 and 51.4) and as defined in the MIB.
When SNMP is enabled, one or more of 4 alarms may be sent by the FS1 to the
client NMS as a trap message:
Power supply failure or disconnection: fs1PSAlarm (see parameter 60.1)
Reference video: fs1REFAlarm (see parameter 60.3)
Format: fs1FMTAlarm (see parameter 60.2)
Temperature of FS1 is over limit (internally): fs1OVRAlarm
61
1
104
The trap message would be sent to server-based external network management
systems (NMS). These trap destinations must have a fixed IP address that you have
pre-defined (FS1 parameters 51.2 and 51.4 must be set to point to these, if used).
51.2 SNMP Trap Dest 1
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
variable
51.4 SNMP Trap Dest 2
Using the Adjust buttons, enter the IP address of the destination where SNMP
command messages (called “traps”) will be sent. This is usually an SNMP client
(“NMS” or Network Management System) somewhere on your LAN.
Default: 192.168.0.3
Description of Choices
Parameter Adjustments:
variable
Using the Adjust buttons, enter the IP address of the destination where SNMP
command messages (called “traps”) will be sent. This is usually an SNMP client
(“NMS” or Network Management System) somewhere on your LAN.
Default: 192.168.0.3
For example, the FS1 could send a trap message if one of its redundant power
supplies becomes unplugged. A client software agent that communicates with the
NMS might then get a message telling the operator what has happened.
Parameter 51.3 and 51.5 determine the SNMP Port(s) used for sending the trap
messages. UDP Port 162 is the default used for SNMP trap messages. However, if
this port is being used by another protocol or service, you can change the setting by
modifying these parameters.
51.3 SNMP Trap Port 1

GPI DE-9 Connector Pinout
The GPI inputs and outputs are electrically isolated from the power and ground on
the FS1 frame. There are two inputs and two outputs. Electrical isolation is
provided for up to two pieces of external equipment. The following guidelines apply
to the two GPI inputs and outputs:
• Input 1 and Output 1 share a common isolated ground on pins 6 & 8 (I/O
Ground 1),
• Input 2 and Output 2 share a common isolated ground on pins 7 & 9 (I/O
Ground 2).
• Pin 5, local chassis ground, may only be used as a reference when isolation is
not required.
• Both GPI inputs are internally pulled high through a 10K ohm resistor to an
isolated 5V supply, so that a relay contact closure or any device sinking at least
0.4 mA to ground will register a logic low.
Both GPI outputs are 5V TTL compatible, sourcing up to 6mA and sinking up to
4mA each.

108
The following illustration shows typical external wiring to the GPI connector.
The GPI inputs require some kind of contact closure between the input pin and
the input ground pin to register the logic low that triggers the GPI input.
You can connect the outputs to TTL buffers that communicate the GPI output
logic levels to other devices. For example, you could use an opto-isolator
controlling a relay to activate other equipment as shown below.

Glossary
Reference Terms
3:2 Pull Down
3:2 pull down is a process where six frames are added to a film’s original 24frames-per-second format so that it can work within the 30 fps NTSC
standard.
24P
A term for 24 full frames per second digital video progressively captured. It
generally refers to the HD format of 1920x1080, although it is also used with
1280x720 images as well.
1080i
Refers to a picture resolution of 1920 vertical pixels by 1080 horizontal pixels.
The “i” stands for interlaced scanning. Interlaced scanning is based on the
principle that the screen shows every odd line at one scan of the screen and
then all the even lines in a second scan.
1080p
Refers to a picture resolution of 1,920 vertical pixels by 1,080 horizontal
pixels. The “p” stands for progressive scanning. This format works on the same
principle as 720p; the only difference is that in this type there are more pixels
and the resolution is better.
1080psf
1080psf differs from 1080p defined previously; PSF is an acronym for
“Progressive Segmented Frame”. Like 1080p, psf is progressive, but it differs
in that the data is written as two separate “fields” (but without inter-field
motion as interlaced video carries). This provides psf with the temporal
motion characteristics of progressive video, but with the data transport ease of
interlaced video. There should be no visual difference between the display of a
progressive frame communicated as 1080p, and the same frame
communicated as 1080psf.
E1
1
120
16:9
Refers to the aspect ratio of movie screen and widescreen DTV formats used in all
HDTV (High Definition TV) and some SDTV (Standard Definition TV). The ratio is
16 arbitrary units of width for every 9 arbitrary units of height.
4:3
The aspect ratio of traditional National Television Systems Committee (NTSC) TV
screens. The ratio refers to four units of width for every three units of height.
720p
Refers to a picture that is 1,280 vertical pixels by 720 horizontal pixels. The “p” stands
for progressive scanning. Progressive scanning offers a smoother picture as 720
horizontal lines are scanned progressively or in succession in a vertical frame repeated 30
times a second.
Anamorphic
video
Refers to video images that are “squeezed” or “stretched” (depending on whether the
video is being upconverted or downconverted) to fit a video frame. When 16:9
anamorphic video is displayed on a 4:3 screen size (downconvert), the images will
appear unnaturally tall and narrow.
Aspect Ratio
A ratio of screen width to height. It may be traditional 4:3 or 16:9 widescreen.
ATSC
An acronym for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is responsible for
developing and establishing Digital-HDTV Standards. It is also the name of the DTV
system used by broadcasters in the U.S.
Barn Doors
When a 4:3 image is viewed on a 16:9 screen, the viewer sees black bars on the sides of
the screen, sometimes referred to as “barn doors.”
Codec
A short term used for both “Compressor-decompressor” and “Coder-decoder.” In terms
of Final Cut Pro and most editing and graphics applications, codec generally means
“Compressor-decompressor”, which, whether hardware or software, converts video and
audio signals to and from a compressed digital format. (“Coder-decoder” is generally a
device that converts analog video and audio signals into a digital format for
transmission, and also converts digital signals back into an analog format; depending on
the application, it can also have alternate meanings.)
Crossconvert
Refers to format conversion from one video standard to a similar video standard, such as
720p HD to 1080i HD.
Decoder
See “codec.” A device or program that translates encoded data into its original format
(i.e., it decodes the data.).
Deinterlacing
The process of converting an interlaced-scan video signal (where each frame is split into
two sequential fields) to a progressive-scan signal (where each frame remains whole).
Advanced de-interlacers include a feature called 3-2 pulldown processing. Sometimes
de-interlacing is referred to as "line-doubling."
Downconvert
Refers to format conversion from a higher resolution input standard to a lower one. For
example, converting a 1080 input to a 525 display (HD to SD).
FS1 Installation and Operation Manual —
DTV (Digital
Television)
DTV stands for Digital Television. It refers to all digital television formats and standards
established by the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC). Two basic DTV
standards are HDTV (high-definition television) and SDTV (standard-definition
television)
Embedding
Refers to inserting a digital signal into the blank parts of another digital signal, such as
embedding digital audio into the horizontal blanking interval of a digital video signal.
Frame Rate
The rate at which frames are displayed per second. Frame rates are used in synchronizing
audio and pictures for video and film. In motion pictures and television, the frame rates
are standardized by SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Editors). SMPTE
frame rates of 24, 25 and 30 frames per second are very common, with a1great number of
others also used. Frame rates have different applications and uses in different workflows.
For motion pictures 24 frames per second is common, while in standard definition
television 30 frames per second is common in the US (NTSC). Higher frame rates
produce smoother motion but also create larger file storage requirements.
Frame Sync
A circuit that automatically adjusts video signal timing to match the timing of a reference
signal, such as the signal from a genlock circuit.
Genlock
A circuit that phase-locks to a reference video input and produces timing signals used by
other circuits, such as a frame sync, to lock video to the reference.
HDTV (HighDefinition
Television)
High Definition Television refers to the highest-resolution formats of the DTV formats.
Offering twice the vertical and horizontal picture resolution of standard definition, an
HD picture is much sharper. HDTV has a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. HD formats
1080i and 720p both offer reduced motion artifacts like ghosting and dot crawl.
HD-SDI
Refers to a high definition signal provided on a serial digital connection.
High Definition
A video format consisting of either 720 active lines of progressive video or 1080 active
lines, using either progressive or interlaced scanning.
Interlaced
Scanning
A scanning method based on the visible screen showing every odd line at one scan of the
screen and the even lines in a second scan.
Keyer
A circuit that inserts one video signal into another. For example, a caption might be
inserted into background video.
Letterbox
Letterbox refers to the image of a wide-screen picture on a standard 4:3 aspect ratio
screen. Usually black bars are shown above and below the picture to fill the unused space.
Letter-boxing maintains the original aspect ratio of the source (often a film source of 16:9
aspect ratio or wider).
Luminance
The brightness or black-and-white component of a color video signal. Luminance
determines the level of picture detail.
121
122
Processing
Amplifier (Proc
Amp)
A circuit that cleans up a video signal by correcting the signal gain, black level, hue, and
saturation to desired specifications.
Progressive
Scanning
Progressive scanning provides a picture made up of 720 or 1080 horizontal lines
scanned progressively in succession, within a vertical frame. The frame repeats 30 times
a second.
Resolution
Resolution usually refers to the density of lines, and dots per line, that represent an
image. It is measured by the number of pixels displayed. A higher number of lines and
dots provides sharper and more detailed picture content. Analog television pictures have
over 200,000 color pixels while HDTV—at 1080 vertical pixels by 1920 horizontal
pixels—offer greater than 2 million pixels per picture.
Sampling
A digital process by which analog information is measured in intervals to convert analog
to digital.
SDTV
(StandardDefinition
Television)
Standard Definition Television pictures are higher quality than NTSC, however, they do
not reach the quality and resolution of HD. SDTV is based on 480 lines of vertical
resolution, available with both interlaced and progressively scanned formats.
SD-SDI
Refers to a standard definition signal provided on a serial digital connection.
Sidebars
See “Barn Doors.”
Upconverting
Process by which a standard definition picture is changed to a simulated high-definition
picture.
Widescreen
Widescreen TV is a picture with a 16:9 aspect ratio. 16:9 is the aspect ratio of movie
screen and widescreen DTV formats used in all HDTV (High Definition TV) and some
SDTV (Standard Definition TV); it stands for 16 units of width for every 9 units of
height.
