HUM ELIMINATORS
RF transmission in cables is routinely plagued by 50Hz or 60Hz hum or other interference.
When a cable is used for video signals, small electrical currents caused by differences in
ground potential (ground loops) or induced common-mode noise, can result in
considerable hum interference. Cameras, video recorders, monitors and video effects
generators... even switchers and computers downstream... are affected. Allen Avionics
offers three types of products to eliminate hum caused by ground loops or induced
currents. All are broadcast quality. Although they can be inserted anywhere in the
transmission system, they are most effective at or near the end of the cable run.
Hum Eliminators
Hum eliminators work best in those circumstances where interference is cause by small differences in ground potential (less than 20v DC) or by
induced currents in long cable runs. When there are multiple power panels in a building, or even on a single floor, equipment and lighting loads result
in small differences in potential which induce ground loop current flow and 60Hz hum.
Electromagnetically-induced currents in long cable runs also create hum. For 50Hz and 60Hz power systems, and where induced currents are high,
HEC-2000 and HEC-2000-H increase the attenuation at the power frequency. Should a small amount of hum remain after an HEC has been added to
the circuit, a second HEC can be added in series, without significant degradaton of the video signal.

Video Noise Eliminators
Video Isolation Transformers (VIT)
Video noise eliminators are effective for video signals up to 30MHz—
encompassing HDTV frequencies with little distortion. For signals below
20MHz they are totally “transparent”. Since hum reduction, using video
noise eliminators, is not as great as with HECs, their use is recommended
only where higher frequencies are involved.
Breaking the ground connection in video transmission lines will eliminate
60Hz hum caused by ground loops. When there are hum problems
caused by large potential differences (20v or more) the video isolation
transformer is the product to use. The dielectric withstanding voltage of
the VIT is over 500 volts at DC. VITs are true isolation transformers—there
is no DC path between the windings. Frequency response is flat over the
range 20Hz to 4.5MHz. VITs also remove the hum created by electromagnetically induced currents from power lines or distribution systems.
VNE-50: 50 Ohms unbalanced (impedance), 40dB for 60Hz hum
reduction depending on system, 0.2dB maximum insertion loss, 20dB
minimum return loss. Made of high-impact ABS plastic, measures 4 3⁄8 x

DEUCE SDQ
Scaler, Line Doubler and Line Quadrupler
A video scaling solution for the price-conscious, the Deuce SDQ is a versatile scaler,
line doubler and line quadrupler that offers state-of-the-art signal processing
technology— but with a no-frills design and at an extremely affordable
price. Deuce SDQ offers the most sophisticated level of “intelligent”
motion compensation processing available. Making use of three different
algorithms (adaptive frame using inverse 3:2 pulldown, vertical temporal
or static mesh), the scaler automatically selects the most effective motion
compensation method or combination of methods based upon the source material being scaled.
Deuce SDQ accepts composite, S-Video and Y/CB/CR component inputs in NTSC or PAL standards. Intelligently scales to
five output resolutions: 800 x 600,1024 x 768,1280 x1024, line double and line quadruple. The simple front panel has a
lockout function and a non-volatile memory remembers all settings. In addition, the compact unit has an RS-232 port and
a universal input power supply.
◆ Intelligent video scaling to three resolutions,
plus line doubling and line quadrupling.
◆ Switchable composite, component and
S-Video inputs in NTSC and PAL standards.
◆ VGA-compatible HD-15 connector provides
RGBHV, RGBS or Y/CB/CR progressive scan
output formats.
◆ Output vertical refresh rate locked to input
vertical refresh rate (59.95Hz NTSC; 50Hz PAL).
◆ Output resolutions include: 800 x 600, 1024 x
768, 1280 x 1024, line double and quadruple.
◆ Automatically
detects and applies the best
motion compensation selecting from three
algorithms:
– Static mesh (images with little or no motion).
◆ Supports 16:9 “letterbox” videotape and
DVD sources.
◆ RS-232 remote port for use with a

DEUCE MC
Scaler, Line Doubler and Line Quadrupler
Otherwise identical to the Deuce SDQ, the Deuce MC has a unique user-selectable
Motion Compensation feature that can be set based on the specific input source
image. The motion compensation feature enables Deuce MC users to
select one of three different motion compensation techniques: adaptive
frame using inverse 3:2 pulldown, vertical temporal or static mesh, or one
of three automatic modes that automatically analyze the video input.
Because each technique is set specifically for the type of input image, the result is the
clearest, crispest picture quality possible, making Deuce MC ideal for professional A/V applications.
Step features from as Deuce SDQ —
◆ Six user-selectable motion compensation settings using three different algorithms, applied individually or in combination:
— Static mesh (images with little or no motion)
— Vertical temporal (standard video)
— Adaptive frame (inverse 3:2 pulldown, for video originating from a film source)

multi-format inputs and outputs, they are the flexible and cost-effective
answer to any conversion requirement. BrightEye’s easy configuration
interface and signal status indicators make it simple to install and troubleshoot a system. Their compact size lets you put conversion where it is
needed: at a camera, projector, monitor, workstation or VCR. They support NTSC/PAL standard with automatic input sensing and switching.
BrightEye may offer the world's smallest TBC/Frame Synchronizer, but
the features, specifications, and performance are far from tiny. All analog
I/O is performed at 12-bits of resolution. Composite decoding incorporates sophisticated comb filters, and all internal processing meets or exceeds ITU-R601 specifications. BrightEye converters provide superb video
quality where fine detail and subtle shading are faithfully reproduced.
Going to HD is simple with BrightEye up and downconverters. Feeding
HD-Tri-Level Sync to a non-linear editor is easy with one of the BrightEye
master sync pulse generators and test signal generators. Reliable and
easy to install, these units make the transition to HD simple.
Bundled Mac and PC Software
Adjusting video levels, output timing and mixing audio channels is easy with
BrightEye control software. No dip switches or button hold downs are needed.
Use of the supplied Bright Eye Mac or PC software provides control and adjustment
of a single unit or multiple Bright Eye converters connected to a USB hub.
BrightEye Mac and PC software is included free with each BrightEye unit.
Rackmounting BrightEye converters is easy. You can install 3 to 6 converters with the optional rack mount kit. Six single high units or three double
high units (BrightEye 90 family) fit in just 1RU. Since BrightEye converters are less than 6” deep, you can even rack them behind other equipment
when space is at a premium. A power supply is required for each unit.
Fiber Optic Interfaces
When distances take you beyond the reach of ordinary copper cable, look to BrightEye’s fiber optic interfaces. With both laser diode fiber drivers and
photo diode receivers, they can handle both ends of a fiber optic link. Fully compliant with SMPTE 274M, 296M and 297M, BrightEye’s optical interfaces operate at a wavelength of 1310 nm. Integral SC type connectors make it easy to connect into fiber infrastructure. There are no internal fiber pigtails, so all optical converters support both multi and single mode fiber. BrightEye’s fiber interconnect carries the same digital bitstream that makes up
the electrical SDI interface. Data is carried by pulses of light rather than pulses of electricity. This rugged transmission system can carry serial digital
signals with no loss or degradation for 30 miles or more on single mode fiber. With the use of a launch attenuator, multimode fiber is supported.
Choose from converters that include analog video I/O or units that interface directly to HD or SD SDI signals. Ideal for outdoor events and remote
broadcasts, fiber is also electrically non-conductive, so it provides complete electrical isolation between the two connection points. Fiber connectivity
completely eliminates concern for AC ground loops and hum. Optical transmission over fiber is also immune to radio frequency interference (RFI) and
electromagnetic interference. Even nearby lightning strikes will not compromise the signal.

BrightEye 90-A HD Up/Down Cross Converter
BrightEye 91 HD Upconverter with AES Audio
and ARC with Analog Audio
The BrightEye 91 is an
upconverter with
analog composite and
standard definition
SDI inputs. Feed the
analog composite or
SDI output of a camera
to a BrightEye 91 and
upconvert to HD. Then
take the HD signal into
a switcher or projection
system. Upconverting
existing SD equipment
lets you leverage the equipment you already have and operate in
the HD domain. An external reference input allows genlock to a house
reference. All vertical interval data and closed captioning is faithfully
passed.
While some cameras may have IEEE1394 (DV) output, using the video
output and upconverting before distribution is preferable since longer
cable runs can be achieved and quality is superior. Additionally, the
BrightEye 91’s reference input allows you to time the upconverted
video output for use with a production switcher.
BrightEye 91 handles both embedded audio and discreet AES digital
audio inputs. It supports 16-channels of embedded audio. If the

PerfectSync Technology
The ADVC700, ADVC1000 and ADVC3000 all include patented PerfectSync technology to ensure perfect output synchronization. PerfectSync
controls and synchronizes the transfer rate of IEEE 1394 communication with an external reference signal. This prevents skipped and duplicate
frames and produces perfect conversion of all frames during analog/DV conversion. Many of the current analog/DV converters adjust the output
by skipping and duplicating frames in order to synchronize the DV signal to an external sync signal's frame frequency. In these converters, there
is no guarantee that all input frames will output to DV accurately without frame repetition and frame drops. Since the DVC700/1000/3000 are
primarily designed for studio environments, frame accuracy is essential for accurate offline and online editing. With PerfectSync, this is assured.

SMPTE TIME CODE EQUIPMENT
For Desktop, Rack Mount or Field Use
Horita offers a full line of SMPTE LTC and VlTC
time code readers, generators, inserters and
translators. The LTC line offers choice and
flexibility, from the basic WG-50 Play Speed
Reader/Inserter to the complete TRG-50 PC
Generator/Search Speed Reader/Window
Inserter with RS-232 interface and TC-TOOL
KIT tape logging software. VITC products
provide generator, reader/window inserter
and translator functions, enabling
translation between LTC and VITC, as well
as having a full-function VITC system. LED units, like the TCD-100 and VLR-100, provide visual displays, as well as
reader/generator functions. The TCI-50 and RLT-50 allow time-code to be inserted into, or extracted from, an RS4-22 data
stream. The GPI-50 is a time code based dual general purpose interface.
A complete studio clock and time code system is available with the Horita GPS-MTG. The system uses the accuracy of the
atomic clocks in the Global Positioning System and generates time of day, zone, and date SMPTE time code. Compatible
LED and video overlay display units show time of day and date for any time zone. When the studio time code is needed in
the field, the palm-sized battery operated, PTG mini-time code generator can be set to the GPS-MTG, providing multiple
field cameras with precise time/date time code, in step with each other and with the studio master.
Horita also offers color bar, test signal, blackburst and sync generators; matte and safe area generators; serial control
titler and keyboard controlled titler; counters; timers and stopwatches. All products are available in desk top, rackmount
and field packages. They are all versatile, affordable and easy to use.
What is SMPTE Time Code?
Types of Time Code Equipment
Adopted in the late 1960s by the Society of Motion Picture and Television
Engineers, SMPTE Time Code is an industry standard frame numbering
system that assigns a specific number to each frame of video in hours,
minutes, seconds and frames format. There are two SMPTE formats for Time
Code: Longitudinal Time Code (LTC) and Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC).
SMPTE time code equipment generally falls into
one of three categories: generators, readers, and
character inserters (or window dub inserters). The
generator creates the time code signal. Time code
readers “read” the electronic time code signal,
decode it and display it. The display may be an
LED readout, or it may be superimposed over the
video. Window dub inserters are generally used to
produce work copies of the master tape, with the
time code display “burned” into the video picture.
Other time code based equipment fill a variety of
needs. Translators allow interchange between LTC
and VITC, or into RS-422 /RS-232 protocols to
communicate time code information to VCRs,
edit controllers and computers. A GPI (General
Purpose Interface) uses time code to electronically
trigger events in production, playback, scientific
experiments, etc.
LTC is an audible electronic digital signal recorded on an audio or time code
channel of a VCR or audio recorder. VITC is a visual frame identification code
recorded in the vertical blanking interval of each video field. VITC time code
must be recorded at the same time as the video, and it can be read in VCR
pause mode. LTC time code offers more flexibility than VITC in that it may be
recorded prior to recording the video (prestriped), during production, or
added to the tape at a later time (post striped). However, it does use up an
audio channel, and the tape must be moving in order to read it.
Why is SMPTE time code so important? The answer can be stated in two
words: Accuracy and repeatability. With time code, every frame of video is
given its own unique identifying number. Once recorded, that time
code/video frame relationship will be the same every time the tape is played.

PTG Mini Portable Time Code Generator with LCD
PTR Mini Portable Time Code Reader with LCD
Designed for use in the field (runs 24
hours on a single 9V battery), the
palm-sized PTG features a large
2-line LCD readout for time code,
user bits, and setup information. Easy
to setup, it is ideal for use in multicamera shoots for games, concerts,
weddings, etc.—where each tape has to have the same time code for
precise time and image matching during post production. For these
applications the PTGs are jammed (automatically preset) to the same
time code source. User bits are set to the date and also include a unique
ID number for each individual PTG. Each tape will then have the same
time/date but a different ID number so there will never be a mixup.
The PTR reads SMPTE/EBU time
code and displays the time code
and/or user bit data on a 2-line
LCD display. “Store” and “Recall”
functions allow quick, easy capture
and review of up to 50 time code
events. Stored time codes can be
sent as RS-232 serial data to a PC
running the supplied PTR-LOG program.
◆ Reads and displays time and user bit data at 23.976, 24 (film), 25

ADQ-50 Audio / Video Cue “Streamer”
The ADQ-50 is a low cost, small, desktop sized unit that
generates both video and audio cue prompts for use
during ADR, Foley, or other post production audio tasks
that require precise and repeatable timing or syncing of
audio responses to specific video action.
The ADQ-50 overlays a thin white vertical line which
sweeps across the screen from left to right. When the line
reaches the rightmost side of the screen it meets a vertical
white bar, and a square box is flashed for a few frames in
the center of the screen. The combination of the disappearing line and the flashing square visually
signals the start of the audio event.
In addition, as the line moves across the screen, the ADQ-50 outputs an audio cue pattern
consisting of three evenly spaced audio tones, which a fourth tone missing in sync with the
flashing square video prompt. The audio prompts also interact with the video display by turning
off the sweeping line when the tones sound, permitting use on sound stages or other environments
where low or zero volume levels are required.
The ADQ-50 reads SMPTE time code from 1/30th play speed up to 10x play speed, allowing the
user to quickly and easily locate the video cue point on the video monitor. A simple actuation of
the pushbutton MARK switch captures the time code time associated with the cue point. The
marked time can then be trimmed frame-by-frame to help zero in on the exact point at which the
ADR, Foley, or other audio event is to occur.
In OPERATE mode the ADQ-50 automatically “backtimes” or subtracts from this marked time and
starts the sweep display and audio tone cuing sequences when the incoming time code matches
the calculated backtime value. The cueing sequence ends with the square video prompt flashed in
the center of the screen when the incoming time code coincides with the marked time.
AM-50
“On-Screen” Audio VU Meter
The AM-50 provides
a visual indication

Balanced input range is selectable from 0dBu,
+4dBu, or +8dBu, single ended input range
from -20dBV, -10dBV, or -5dBV.
Various formats are provided for displaying the
audio levels, including those designed to take
up a minimum amount of on-screen video
space, those with a “see thru” mode, black
mask on/off, audio level markers on/off, etc.
Display format, size, and position selections are
saved in non-volatile memory.

◆ Alarm mode leaves flashing “peak” reading
until display is manually reset.
The ADQ-50 can also be triggered manually for rehearsal purposes or by RS232 serial data input
from a PC. Event times can be entered manually from a list by using the MARK switches or input
from the included QMe event list/control software.

GPS1 • GPS2 • GPS3
SMPTE Time Code Generator/Readers Synchronized to GPS Time
The GPS1, GPS2, and GPS3 provide exact time and position in SMPTE LTC format for
recording on tape. The code is synchronized to standard time through an interface to
a GPS receiver. Time synchronization provides direct correlation of GPS position data
with the video recording. GPS1 is used when only time synchronization is required
during video acquisition. Because each logged position has a GPS time-tag, the GPS
position data can later be matched to the associated videotape images by the
GPS1-synchronized time code. Improved position accuracy can be obtained by
applying differential correction when post-processing the raw GPS data logged in the
GPS receiver or computer. GPS2 and GPS3 products add the real-time position data to
the “user bits” of the SMPTE time code once per second. The position data is subject to
the accuracy limitation as imposed by GPS selective availability, unless real-time
differential correction is provided in the GPS receiver.

GPS and UTC Time
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a navigation and position-locating system based
on reception from NAVSTAR satellites. GPS receivers provide highly accurate time fixes
anywhere worldwide. GPS system time is a worldwide standard atomic time that is exactly
related to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC or “Greenwich time”). Local time is Greenwich
time offset by hours corresponding to local time zone.
The GPS satellite antenna/receiver provided with Horita GPS/SMPTE time code and video
is a small dome about 4” high by 6” in diameter. It is rugged, sealed against the environment, and mounts with a standard 3/4” threaded pipe fitting. It comes with a 50’ cable and
is usually installed outdoors on a roof or indoors under a skylight. It does not have to be
oriented in any special manner other than to have a broad view of the sky.

AU51
Broadcast Audio Delay
A natural choice to any studio’s audio requirements, the AU51 is a 20-bit, broadcast quality
stereo Audio Delay with an adjustable range of up
to10.0 seconds. The delay can be adjusted in 0.01,
0.1, and1.0 second increments to accurately correct Lip Sync problems. It is very easy and simple to use. You just look at
the video while listening to the audio and turn the delay adjust knobs until the video and audio are correctly in sync. In
applications where the audio delay is a known fixed value, the delay can be preset at the factory.
The AU51D accepts either analog or digital audio signals and simultaneously output the delay audio in both analog and
digital forms. (In essence, it is also a digital to analog audio converter or vice versa). Accepting sampling frequency of
33.1KHz, 44.1KHz, or 48KHz gives AU51D the flexibility to deal with the increasing varieties of digital audio formats exist
today. The AU51D-EM steps up with ability to extract the audio signals from the embedded SDI signal.

STAR-8
Multi-Channel Crawl, Economy Crawl and Text Generator
When budget is the overriding
concern, look to the monochrome
STAR-8 multi-channel crawl system.
It is the most economical means of
displaying basic crawls messages for
large CATV and CCTV operations. A1RU standalone, eight-channel analog crawl inserter, the STAR-8, can display a single
fixed page of text information or crawl a single message for each of its eight channels. In the event of a power failure, the
STAR-8 automatically connects its video input directly to the video output, bypassing the unit. When power is restored, the
device will reset itself without displaying any out of sync characters.
When used with the powerful STARMU processor and Keywest Technology’s exclusive XCP software, STAR-8 is the ideal
system for cable headends. In that configuration, the STAR-8 supports up to 320 channels, making it the most cost-effective
multi-channel system on the market today. The STARMU processor can be controlled locally or remotely via modem or
over the web. Non-volatile battery backup of each channel ensures that messages will be displayed automatically after a
power outage. With the latest version XCP software, which is supplied with or without the STARMU system, entry data and
setting up crawls are easy. The software also provides off-line editing, real-time scheduling and remote communications.

CHAMELEON SERIES ROUTING SWITCHERS
Chameleon series switchers are custom-configured, modular products that can be configured in
sizes from 16x16, up to 256x256. Smaller configurations can often be expanded by simply
adding input or out put cards to the chassis via the hinged front panel. Analog video signals
from composite up to RGBHV are supported by the various configurations within the series.
Systems can be specified with balanced or unbalanced broadcast quality audio that can be
routed independently from the video or as audio-follows-video. The crosspoint matrix is
controlled via RS-232, IP or from the intuitive and familiar keypad front panel controller. An
optional external keypad controller is also available for remote operation. All switchers are
available with an optional industry-exclusive, integrated front panel preview monitor.

NEW! RS III RGBHV SERIES
The RSIII RGBHV Series matrix switchers are designed to route RGBHV
video signals and balanced or unbalanced stereo audio signals.
Available in matrix sizes from 4 x 8 to12 x 8, the series features 300
MHz bandwidth and can be used to route RGBS, RGsB, HDTV,
component, composite and S-Video signals. The series also feature
Knox’s exclusive volume and tone attenuation on the matrix outputs.
In addition to traditional RGBHV analog video and audio outputs, the series offers integrated CAT5 transmitters to distribute signals long distances
on low-cost twisted pair cable. Providing integrated CAT5 transmitters also alleviates cable management issues with the reack while reducing the
potential for faulty BNC terminations. The RSIII RGBHV is housed a 3RU chassis and can be connected through RS-232, RS-422/485 or Ethernet. Routing
and other functions can also be controlled by the intuitive front panel controller. Ideal for boardrooms, houses of worship, classroom systems, digital
signage, hospitality and VTC systems.

SDI Presence Detector
AES/EBU Digital Audio DA
Designed to monitor two SDI
signals and automatically switch
to a backup digital source. In the
event of a failure of the number
one digital signal it will switch
to an auxiliary signal. A captivescrew terminal sub-module is
provided for “audio-follow video” capability or status mode.
A 3-terminal dry-contact connector offers normally-closed and normally
open contacts to control peripheral gear. Component (270MB/s) and
composite (143MB/s) digital video formats are supported.
The input receiver device monitors the incoming signal level & produces
a DC voltage proportional to the amount of gain and equalization
necessary to recover and re-shape the signal. If the automatic gain/EQ
voltage exceeds a user set threshold, it will switch to auxiliary input
before data errors are visible in the primary input. Front panel switches
allow you to override the automatic change-over function and choose
either video source. Dual front panel “status” LEDs indicate the presence
or absence of Primary and Auxiliary video inputs. Primary/auxiliary
switching lets you take advantage of the automatic gain and
equalization capabilities of the input receiver. A 75 ohm matchedimpedance relay allows the input signal to pass through if power is lost.
Accepts either AES3-1992 or
AES3-ID inputs and provides a
total of eight outputs of digital
audio: six to AES3-ID and two
to AES3-1992. Transformercoupled inputs and outputs
are standard to eliminate the
possibility of ground loops.
Captive screw terminal blocks are used for the AES3-1992 input/outputs
while BNC’s are used for the AES3-ID connections.
A front panel switch selects between BNC and screw terminal, (AES3-ID,
AES3-1992). Sample rate LED’s show three rates, 48KHz, 44.1KHz and

signal. An AC power switch on the front panel allows the user to turn the
unit on or off at will. No need to go behind the rack to check the fuse;
the fuse is on the front panel.
Many features are found in the LEI-540 for professional use. The digital
signal path uses state-of-the-art integrated circuits. The data is re-sliced
and reclocked for jitter attenuation. Sample rates are automatically
detected and indicated by front panel LEDs. Data errors are also

propagation delays. Delay adjustment range is 6°.
IEC-787
Vertical Interval Inserter
Provides an economical
way to recover signals in the
vertical blanking interval
that may be lost during
video processing such as
video compression or
overlay and comb filtering.
This would include Closed Caption data on line 21, Ghost Cancellation
Reference signal on line 19 and other signals in the vertical interval.
Using front panel switches, any of lines 10 through 21 may be selected
for insertion. The keyer employs a high-performance phase linear
circuit to provide clean insertion, completely free of artifacts.
Differential input configuration is standard on both video inputs, but
single-ended configuration can be selected by an internal jumper. A
switchable Monitor output allows you to view either of the video inputs
ahead of the keyer. For system timing, a front panel calibrate switch will
cause the unit to alternate between inputs at a field rate. If no input is
connected to the VBI Source Input BNC, the IEC-787 may be used to
simply pass or delete selected lines in the VBI of the program video.

The IEC-754 Video Delay DA
features continuously variable
delay from 30ns to 475ns. It
offers transparent transmission,
with -3dB frequency response
to 32MHz, and -3dB to 16MHZ
with maximum delay. A
differential input is standard
and provides more than 80 dB of common mode rejection. An internal
spare 32 pin IC socket provides for additional optional delay that
increases the delay by 200, 300, 400, or 500ns. Cable equalization is
adjustable from the front panel with a calibrated control that
compensates for loss in coax cable for up to 1000’ of Belden 8281.
A delay trim on the front panel allows matching of signal propagation
delays with a range of ±5ns.
Decoder for the NTSC/PAL
system. It is capable of processing
and displaying all standard
closed caption format
transmissions. This includes
the codes specified by the FCC
Report and Order on General
Docket No. 91-1 and EIA-608
recommended practices for Captions, Text and XDS. Nine standard data
channels are supported by the IEC-788: Caption channels 1 through 4
(CC1- CC4), Text modes 1 through 4 (T1 through T4), and Extended Data
Services (XDS). The various operating modes are selectable from four
front panel switches.
A switch on the rear panel selects PAL or NTSC and a switch on the
front panel selects between 115 or 230VAC. Designed with the
professional user in mind, the IEC-788 processes composite baseband
video or S-Video. The composite video input is high impedance looping
and the S-Video is standard levels. A complementary differential input
amplifier assures high common mode rejection while its phase-linear
keyer cleanly inserts decoded characters into the video image.
Differential gain and phase are well within 0.1% and 0.1° respectively.
In addition, the IEC-788 is backed by a standard 10-year warranty.
High performance, flexibility, and economy are equally represented in
the IEC-788.

PCE-845 Closed Caption Converter
Inserts caption and text data on line 21 of the NTSC signal. It will insert
four channels of data that are multiplexed into the vertical interval on
line 21 of field one. Also capable of inserting data on lines 10 - 25. A
single internal jumper selects correct line placement. Also compatible
with PAL closed caption (caption data is usually inserted on Line 22 of
field one). Accepts composite, component and S-Video signals.
There are two composite video outputs. If a component format is used,
the delay of each signal path is carefully matched, providing transparent
thru-put. RS-232 and external modem port allow a modem and a
computer to be connected to the PCE-845, to simultaneously receive
local and remote caption data. A "TEST” signal confirms proper
operation. Two front panel LEDs indicate the operation in field one or
field two. Other status indicators confirm the presence of input video
and RS-232. By-pass mode may be selected from the front panel, by
software commands or via remote control. By-pass is transparent, and
will not glitch the video signal when selected.
A high performance NTSC/PAL closed caption decoder, the PDR-870 is
capable of processing and displaying all standard closed caption
format transmissions — including the EIA-608 Extended Character Set
— in the manner of a typical closed caption decoder.
Nine standard data channels are supported by the PDR-870: Captions
channels 1 thru 4 (CC1-CC4), Text channels 1 thru 4 (T1-T4) and Extended
Data Services (XDS). Decoding channels are selectable by four front-panel
toggle switches. Additional switches provide NTSC or PAL selection,
drop-shadow or box character keying, and internal/external video. An
internal video function allows the PDR-870 to generate its own video as a
medium for producing open captions.
In addition, the PDR-870 can accept an RS-232 data stream and directly
produce open captions, serving as a “character generator decoder.”
Along with it’s powerful decoder functions, the PDR-870 can serve as an
accurate “V-Chip” ratings monitor.
The PDR-870 can recover incoming Line 21 data and send it to a
computer terminal via the RS-232 port. The data may be recovered with
or without the embedded closed caption control codes. The PDR-870
can also perform a unique data conversion to reveal the “non-printing”
characters that are part of the closed caption control codes. Accepts
composite video using a single high impedance, looping input with
two outputs. For S-Video, uses standard 4-pin mini-DIN connectors or
BNCs for its input/output.

PDR-885 CC Encoder/Decoder
The PFS-875 features composite, component (YUV), S-Video and SDI
inputs and outputs, making it the preferred choice among professional
users. A front panel display allows convenient selection between multiple
inputs, which may be connected simultaneously.
The PFS-875 passes four channels of embedded stereo AES audio.
AES delay adjustments will allow for matching output audio to video.
A companion unit allows XLR analog input and output that requires
balanced line audio. The PFS-875 provides dual standard composite and
SDI correction and synchronization to an external analog reference.
When input video is lost, the synchronizer freezes the last good frame
of video, or black burst. The synchronizer decodes multiple composite
standards (NTSC, PAL).
In addition to inserting caption and text data on Line 21 of the NTSC
signal, the PDR-885 can also insert it in either field of the Vertical
Blanking Interval (VBI). Data on the incoming video signal can also be
recovered from either field of the VBI. The data may be displayed as
Open Captions, using the built-in CC decoder, and captured by a
computer utilizing it’s serial data port. Each of these functions,
encoding, decoding, and data recovery can be done simultaneously.
Closed caption decoder functions may be controlled from the front
panel (encoder and data recovery functions are controlled via the serial
data port). Front panel LEDs show the unit status and the presence of
data on the incoming video. Inputs and outputs are provided for
composite video as well as component (RY/ B-Y/Y) and S-Video.
For remote captioning applications, a second serial port is available as
a modem input. Both serial ports may be configured for RS-232 or
RS-422 I/O, with optional plug-in PCB. Internal jumper allows baud
rate selections of 1200 to 9600 bps. Modem and computer may be
connected simultaneously to process local and remote caption data,
only one active at a time.
V-Chip technology is also incorporated in the firmware of the PDR-885.
The PDR-885 handles the automatic repetition of the “V-Chip” data and
can interleave it with existing Line 21 CC data. An optional plug-in
modem is available that operates at 1200 or 2400 baud.
All analog inputs are sampled with 10-bit resolution and decoded using a

with six slots to accommodate various modules. One module slot is dedicated as a dual analog/digital audio reference tone
generator. A second slot is designed as the master genlock module (can be either analog or digital). The genlock module
provides the timebase for all chassis modules. Any of the output modules may be installed in the remaining slots. The output
modules are: analog blackburst, component digital black, analog test patterns, component digital test patterns, pulses (SY, SC

horizontal, and subcarrier timing.
The 812-OP/B digital burst
module uses two 2-bit
mechanical encoders that give
infinite phasing on both the
812-OP/A
vertical and horizontal timing.
This makes them ideal reference
generators, compensating for any timing offset within the timing chain.
Timing information is stored in RAM and can be held there if chassis
power is interrupted, or if you move the module from chassis to chassis.
They go in any slot. When placed in genlock slot #1 they become the
master and all other modules slave to it. They can’t genlock to external
video in the genlock slot. They can only run on its internal time base or
free-run mode. When in free-run mode, a front panel control adjusts the
frequency of the Voltage Controlled Crystal Oscillator (VCXO).
The 812-OP/C accepts analog black burst to genlock to an external
source. The 812-OP/D accepts
digital blackburst to genlock to an
external source. The genlock cell
is slot number two. Whether
module 812-OP/C or 812-OP/D, all
other modules lock to whatever
812-OP/C
is in cell number two. The slot
two module will produce the
necessary lock pulses for all of the other modules in the chassis. The
remaining four cells will accept a digital or analog test of black module.
The 812-OP/C or 812-OP/D take in a stable analog or digital black burst
signal and genlock to it.
A video presence detector controls if the module is in genlock or free-run.
A bi-color LED is used for a video presence indicator. If there is no video,
they automatically switch over to a free-run frequency condition and a

GENFLEX SYNC GENERATOR SYSTEM
PCO-818 Automatic Changeover Unit
As your GenFlex system grows, the PCO-818 stands ready to
grow with you. Engineered to provide complete sync
system reliability in a compact, economical package,
its advanced modular design provides flexibility never
before available in an Automatic Changeover unit.
Combined with the SPG-812, the PCO-818 offers the
best performance and reliability available today. It’s
basic function is to monitor an installation’s primary
sync generator and automatically switch to a backup generator in the event of a failure to the primary.
Modular design offers several advantages over traditional automatic changeover units: Monitor only the signals used by
the system: no need to pay for monitoring capability that isn’t required by the system. Install only the modules you need
now–add more later. Each module is matched to it’s signal: this allows them to accurately monitor pulses of various
amplitudes and widths. It also allows analog and digital signal monitoring in the same chassis. Since the PCO-818 and the
SPG-812 Sync Generator share a common chassis, modules may be interchanged between units. For example, a TV station
may use a single SPG-812 generator with a backup blackburst generator installed in the changeover chassis. In addition,
the PCO-818 is designed such that AC mains failure will not erase the memory of it’s last generator selection. Dual-coil
latching relays provide a reliable signal path even if power is lost to the PCO-818. Meanwhile, its power supply features a
“universal” voltage input range of 85v to 260v AC. In extreme conditions, the PCO-818 would be the last unit to shut down
in the event of an AC mains failure. Bi-color LEDs provide instant status indication for each signal in your system. If a
particular signal isn’t in use, the LED can be easily de-selected (dark) rather than produce a false failure (red) indication. A
“Manual/Automatic” switch allows you to override the automatic changeover function and select either generator in the
system. The PCO-818 is a chassis, power supply and motherboard only. You choose the modules to meet your requirements.

PCA-819 Remote Changeover Alarm
An add-on to the PCO-818 changeover system, the
PCA-819 Remote Changeover Alarm is engineered to
provide a convenient way to monitor changeover,
due to loss of signal, at a remote location. Bi-color
LED’s provide a visual indication of the Changeover
Frame status. Additionally, an audible alarm sounds
to indicate an alarm condition. And to provide even
more flexibility, isolated relay contacts are provided so the user can control other equipment or alarms in the event of a
loss of signal at the Changeover Frame.
Front panel switches allow the user to disable the alarm signal from either, or both, generator banks, and also mute the
audible alarm. Whenever a loss of signal occurs on any of the various changeover modules in the PCO-818, an alarm
signal is generated and the PCA-819 shows the alarm condition on the front panel. The PCA-819 is housed in a rugged 1RU
rackmount enclosure, and can be powered from120 or 240v AC.

stand-alone audio switcher. (Mfr # PAF823 • B&H #LIPAF823)........................689.95
PAF-821 8x2 Stereo Audio Follow (no buttons)
There are no push buttons on the front panel as the PAF-821 gets its
control functions from the VSW Series switchers or RS-232 from a
computer. Multiple switchers can be controlled by a single remote
control panel, PSR series. The PAF-821 is RS-232 controlled and remote
control is RS-422 or RS-485 via an RJ-11 telephone connector and cable
assembly. The PAF-821 is the stereo audio follow companion switcher
for the VSW-822 video switcher. (Mfr # PAF821 • B&H #LIPAF821) ................659.95
PAF-822 8x2 Stereo Audio Follow with Buttons
The PAF-822 gets its control commands from the VSW Series video
switcher. This unit can control the video from either location, video or
audio follow. This unit may also be controlled by RS-232 from a
computer. Multiple switchers can be controlled by a single or multiple
remote control panels. An RJ-11 connector is provide for remote control.

Multiple switchers can be controlled by a single remote control panel,
PSR series. The PAF-826 is RS-232 controlled and remote control is
RS-422 or RS-485 via an RJ-11 telephone connector and cable assembly.
The RJ-11 telephone connector allows several audio follow units operate
in tandem, so several levels of audio may be achieved. The PAF-826
operates as an audio follow for the VSW-800 series video switchers or as
a stand-alone audio switcher. (Mfr # PAF826 • B&H #LIPAF826) ....................757.95
PAF-827 16x1 Stereo Audio Follow (no buttons)
Same as the PAF-823, except the the PAF-827 is a 16x1 switcher. The
PAF-827 operates as an audio follow for the VSW-800 series video
switchers or as a stand-alone audio switcher.

PSR Series Remote Controls for ASW and VSW Switchers
The PSR-800 Series allows you to control and monitor 800 Series video and audio
switchers. Each remote has an RS-232 port. Communications to and from the
switchers themselves is handled via RS-485 compatible serial link, using an RJ-11
modular jack. This unique combination provides a reliable link over long distances (>1000’) with inexpensive, readily available cable. Active video and audio channels are indicated by a pair of seven-segment displays. A front
panel toggle switch provides audio and video “break-away”. Serial commands are easy to use and remember. If audio-follow-video switching is required, use the PAF-800 family of stereo audio switchers to accompany the PSR/VSW-800 series. Each 800 Series switcher features “audio break-away”
capability, allowing the audio to be switched independently of the video. Packaged in a tough 1RU high chassis.

Multi-Layer Audio/Video Routers
Link’s multimedia switchers are not repackaged single channel switchers. They are specifically designed, from ground-up, to handle the
demands of multimedia high resolution signals. Featuring a compact design (1RU or 2RU high), they deliver VGA to QXGA performance.
Competing 8x8 multimedia switchers are typically 3RU high. All the electronics are on front removable ‘hot shapable’ plug-in modules. The H
and V sync channels are based on the same 300mHz analog switching cross-point used for the red, green, and blue channels. This allows them
to handle ANY computer sync rate, polarity, or amplitude without the risk of introducing distortions or jitter to these signals.
Inputs and outputs are via HD-15 computer multimedia standard connectors. By eliminating the BNC connectors Link eliminates one of the
primary causes of signal degradation. If BNC connectors are required, an optional cable (CAD-9) is needed. Each frame has two front load slots
for power supplies. One power supply is standard. The second supply is the redundant power supply option. True load power monitoring is
included with remote indicators for both power supplies. The video and audio power supplies are identical in all Majestic series switchers.

DIGIFLEX 1000 SERIES
Terminal & Distribution System
DigiFlex provides digital, analog, video, and
audio modules for distribution in professional
video systems. The model 1000 frame is the
foundation of a complete family of digital
and analog products. The 1000 Series is the
“Professional's Choice” for long-term
system requirements for distribution, timing,
and processing needs. The 1000 frame makes it easy to accomplish rigorous jobs in the studio and in the field.
The DigiFlex frame will accept11modules (10 when the redundant power supply is installed). Any combination of the
available modules can be installed into the frame. Each module has a companion rear cell for I/0 connections. The
DigiFlex frame can easily accommodate a combination of analog & digital DA’s, A to D’s, D to A’s, synchronizers, and
transcoder modules. SD1& HDTV modules are available. The DigiFlex frame has a comprehensive set of diagnostic fault
indicators. The power supply has a green LED indicating that it is functioning properly. A red LED indicates the DC fuse is
open. If a redundant power supply is installed, the power supply will indicate an input power fault (ie. no AC). A red LED on
the frame indicates a frame fault (loss of signal to any of the modules installed into the frame).
Audio Monitoring Feature
The DigiFlex frame system offers a special audio monitoring feature that eliminates the need for external audio monitor
switchers. Model 1626 is an18-watt monitoring amplifier module that can be installed into an DigiFlex frame slot. The
1626 amplifier can monitor any DigiFlex audio card with an analog output. Rear Cell terminals are provided for connection
to external speakers (not provided by Link Electronics) for rack monitoring. A front edge card headphone jack is also
provided. The 1626 includes a master volume control. Each analog audio monitor has an “output to bus” switch. Setting
the module’s switch to the “on” position sends a sample of the audio that the module is processing to the 1626 monitoring
amplifier. Using the “output to bus” switch each module can be monitored individually.
Only one 1626 monitoring amplifier is required per system. One 1626 can monitor all of the audio modules installed into
ten or more frames. LED’s on each module rear cell indicate loss of signal. This allows the user to conveniently troubleshoot
connections at the rear of the frame. All module faults are tied together on a common bus. Relay contacts are provided on
a rear panel connector for an optional alarm. A +12 VDC power source is also available at the rear panel connector. The
alarm circuit of multiple frames can be wired together.
Frame Options
1000 - Frame with power supply, holds11modules, 1000/2 Frame with Dual power supply, holds 10 modules 7200 Mounting
Frame with power supply will hold any single DigiFlex module. It can be used as a stand-alone Frame-Sync or conversion
device, or it will hold any of the 41 DigiFlex modules. DigiFlex has a single isolated +12 volt power supply system distributed
on the back plane of the frame.
In the unlikely event a problem should occur with the DIGIFLEX 1000 Frame, it is usually repairable without removing it from service. With the exception
of a backplane problem, the DIGIFLEX 1000 Frame can remain fully operational during maintenance or repair. A redundant power supply may be
required for un-interrupted operation during repair. The rear cell is to be specified for the appropriate module. The rear I/O cells are capable of a
variety of different input and output connections. The cells can handle serial digital audio and video, analog audio and video as well as control
signals. The different rear cell I/O connections and the flexibility of the frame places virtually no limits on the diversity of applications that can be
accomplished with the 1000 frame.

HD-BRIDGE DEC+
HDV to HD/SD Interface with Genlock and ASI Inputs
A high-quality HDV (MPEG2) decoder interface with multiple output formats for
news gathering, recording, monitoring, and on-air playout. HD-Bridge Dec+
features 2 HDV IEEE1394 ports (iLink, Firewire), an ASI input, and a Genlock
reference input. Dual digital video outputs provide either HD-SDI or SDI
with embedded audio and time code. One output is a clean feed, and the
other features Time Code burn-in and aspect ratio markers. The interface
also provides composite, SD/HD component video, AES and analog
audio, and LTC outputs. A RS422 port is available for VTR control, and a
built-in cross converter allows1080i / 720p HD cross-conversion. The interface can also perform 720p24 HDV to1080PsF24
HD-SDI conversion for high-end 24p production, and there is also a1080i/720p HD to SD downconverter. For those who

ASI-BRIDGE CAM
HDV to ASI Converter
The ASI-Bridge CAM is a camera-mounted HDV to ASI converter, which offers
direct transmission of HDV news footage, and more effective HDV recording
to an MPEG-2 server. The ASI-Bridge CAM can also be combined with the
HD-Bridge DEC+ to create a highly effective long range HDV newsgathering
system. This overcomes the short range limits of Firewire cable, and allows more
flexibility in the field.
The ASI-Bridge CAM interface accepts HDV via an IEEE1394 connection, and
converts it to standard MPEG-2/ASI format. The interface is ideal for HDV news
gathering, and can be used to convert HDV directly to ASI without the need for a
costly HD MPEG-2 encoder. It also allows direct MPEG-2 recording on a server for
cost effective preparation of dailies. The use of ASI cabling from the camera means the dailies recording device can be
located further away from the camera. The compact interface mounts discretely between an HDV camcorder and a tripod,
and accepts power from the camera battery or from a dedicated in-line power supply.

ADC-800 CAM
HDV Camera HD/SD A/D Converter
The ADC-800 CAM is a compact, camera mounted interface which allows live
HD digital monitoring and recording from an HDV camcorder. This is achieved
by converting the EE uncompressed component analog output to HD-SDI, with
left/right audio and time code embedded. This path overcomes the processing
delay inherent with the MPEG2 Long GOP
structure, which makes it inappropriate to use
the HDV stream for live monitoring. This process
also avoids having to use many cables for recording. The ADC-800 CAM also provides separate on-screen display, including
markers, time code burn-in, and peak meters.

CHROMATTE
Studio Drapes and Custom Solutions
Chromatte is a flexible chromakey solution that allows you to shoot and key almost anywhere. The results achieved on
location are as good as those achieved in a dedicated studio environment. Chromatte is a fabric designed specifically for
use as a background for chromakey production. Unlike conventional chromakey fabrics that are usually blue or green in
color, in ambient light Chromatte is gray to the eye. The fabric contains millions of tiny glass beads that act as reflectors:
when any light — such as the directional light from Reflecmedia’s lens-mounted LiteRing — hits the fabric, it is returned
on the same path back into the camera’s lens. This retro-reflectice process means the camera ‘sees’ the apparently gray
fabric as a perfectly even blue or green background. The nature of the interaction between light and the glass beads
means that seams, folds and creases are no problem.
Chromatte is available in a range of standard size or custom produced studio drapes, where the fabric is backed with a
black light-proof drape and hemmed with eyelets across the top for easy hanging from studio tacking or rail.
Chromatte
offers unrivalled benefits:
Lighting: Conventional fabrics require
significant lighting to create an even color
background, whereas the only light required
to light Chromatte comes from the LiteRing.
This means that any spill from unwanted
light is eradicated and that chromakey can
now be used in low-lit scenes and sets.
Space: By removing the need for additonal
lighting, Chromatte takes chromakey out of
the studio and into any controlled lighting
envrironment— an office, meeeting room or
garage can be a chromakey location in
minutes. Install anywhere— there is no ‘spill’
in a Chromatte installation. Plus, with only
the camera mounted LiteRing required to
light the background, you no longer need
the space to accommodate heavy studio
lighting. With Chromatte you can chromakey
in smaller light controlled locations.
Time: For even an experienced lighting
engineer it can take hours to light a
chromakey set. In man instances, the time
involved and the dfficulties of achieving
high quality results have prevented the use
of chromakey in lower budget and timesensitive productions. Installing Chromatte
takes very little time, freeing up production
time to concentrate on other elements like
scene composition.
Flexibility: Reflecmedia’s LiteRing color
determines whether the production is shot
against blue screen or green screen. If
circumstances change and the alternative
color is required, the LiteRing can simply be
exchanged without any need for repainting
or relighting.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
LiteRing—the Chromakey Source
Chromatte fabric is designed to work with the LiteRing.
The LiteRing is a circular arrangement of bright blue or
green light emitting diodes (LEDs) in a circular casing
that is positioned in front of the lens. It provides all the
necessary source light required to illuminate the
Chromatte fabric for chromakey production.
The LiteRing connects to the camera with a specially
designed adapter ring which is attached to the inner
thread of the lens. The LiteRing is then placed onto the
adapter and locks with a single screw. This enables users to quickly release the LiteRing in
between shots, or change from a green to blue ring base upon their chosen keying color.
◆ The LiteRing takes the blue or green color away from the fabric and completely eliminates
the need to separately light the background. The ability to change the keying color in
seconds cannot be achieved any faster—no need to hang a different drape or repaint the
studio walls.
◆ Tungsten, HMI and fluorescent lights can be large in size, expensive to power an
uncomfortable to work under. Typically you need thousands of watts to light absorbent
chromakey fabrics, whereas the LightRing output of around 10 watts provides all the light
required by Chromatte.
◆ By relocating the color and light into one camera-mounted device, set up time is
significantly reduced, and many of the difficulties associated with conventional chromakey
are overcome.
◆ The LiteRing is available in both green and blue, and in three sizes to fit different size
cameras. Each size of ring has a series of optional adapter rings available to ensure
maximum compatibility with camera lens sizes.
◆ The LiteRing Controller (LRC) allows adjustment of the intensity of light required for
optimum keying results. The controller is powered using a 4-pin XLR connector from the
supplied 12v power supply or camera battery.
◆ Ideal shooting distances depend on a number of variables including levels of ambient
light, choice of keying applications, camera quality and filming formats. As a rule the
subject should be further than 8’ from the camera to avoid a blue or green cast of light.
Maximum distance is approximately 60’.

Chromatte Curtains
Chromatte Curtains are available in three standard
size. Ideal for use when filming in a dedicated
production environment, they do not need to be
fixed or flat but can be pulled back or in to place just
like a conventional curtain. Chromatte Curtains are
backed with black light-proof wool serge and
hemmed with eyelets across the top for easy
hanging from studio tracking or a curtain rail.
Each curtain has eyelets that run across the top. The drapes can be hung using a variety of fixing
methods ranging from s-hooks to tab hooks and rope ties. At the bottom of each curtain is a 4”
pocket where an optional weight can be sewn in. Each curtain comes in a custom bag for easy
storage and portability.

and more affordable than ever to take chromakey production out of the
studio and into any controlled lighting environment. The results are as
good as those achieved in a dedicated studio, but this way you can take
your chromakey studio wherever you go.
The 7’ square collapsible screen weighs just 8 lbs. and packs into a 36” diameter bag. Without any
additional fittings needed, ChromaFlex is opened and ready for use in seconds. The screen’s surface
area allows sufficient space to shoot from close-up to a well-proportioned wide shot. Experienced
professionals or chromakey amateurs will benefit from the ease, flexibility and versatility of
ChromaFlex and the greater time it allows for creativity.

ULTIMATTE DV
Chromakeyer for Live Production
Equipped with composite, S-Video and DV video signals for
foreground, background and composited output, Ultimatte DV
provides the solution for users searching for a cost-effective
tool for live production.
Logical and simple to operate, Ultimatte DV offers unrivalled
control over the matte parameters. Users can quickly compare
the input, the matte and the composite output via a single monitor connection. Internally generated test signals ensure
the highest quality output is maintained. An internal frame store allows non-synchronous signals to be combined – a big
advantage as many DV cameras do not have genlock – and also allows the user to store a background frame in memory.
The unit also functions as a transcoder, enabling the user to convert between video formats. On location, Ultimatte DV
can be used as a pre-visualisation tool, enabling the director and crew to evaluate the first composite, rather than only
seeing the camera feed on a preview monitor.
◆ Professional equipment is not needed. Just plug in devices you already
◆ Designed to work with many different asynchronous sources
have like a DVD player, DV camcorder or computer, and you’ll see
results immediately.
◆ Easy to use, with intuitive controls, interface and connections.

Video Paint / Ultimatte
Ultimatte Paints have been specifically formulated to provide the correct luminance and RGB
Values for optimum operation with the Ultimatte compositing system. The color specifications
were designed in conjunction with the Ultimatte Corporation and have their official approval.
Rosco Ultimatte Paints are recommended for interior and exterior surfaces including fabrics,
wallboard, plastics, plaster, brick, and concrete. Ultimatte Paints have been designed for use with
the Ultimatte System. However they can be used with Chroma Key systems as well. They provide
optimal luminance and color separation when shot on either film or video.
Rosco Ultimatte Super Blue is a darker, purer blue than Ultimatte Blue. It is designed primarily for use in shooting film for
Ultimatte compositing. It permits sufficient separation in the blue and green channels without having to saturate the
blue layer of the negative. The result can be less noise in the telecine transfer. In addition, it can be used to reduce glare
on horizontal surfaces that might interfere with a clean matte.

MINI
“Real Time” Scaling, Noise Reduction and Format Conversion
The Mini brings legendary Teranex image quality to the non-linear editing
and production world. If you’re looking to save time and money in the end,
the Mini is your best choice for real-time upscaling, noise reduction and frame
rate conversion. The Mini is packed with proprietary Teranex technology, like
Flexview for smart aspect ratio conversion, PixelMotion De-interlacing and
Multi-Directional Diagonal Filtering algorithms, which drastically reduce
jaggies on diagonal lines. Teranex’s Per-Pixel Temporal Recursive Noise
Reduction algorithm minimizes HD and SD video noise. Correct cadence is
assured through Teranex’s Per-Pixel Video/Film detection. Teranex HQV Technology yields unsurpassed image quality for
the demanding editor, video cinematographer or producer. Teranex’s mini delivers unparalleled quality, opening up a
world of real-time processing possibilities for the production professional.
F EAT UR ES
➤ In its most basic form, the Mini enables SD/DV productions to be presented in HD, with
◆ PixelMotion De-interlacing
◆ Multi-direction Diagonal Filter (MDDF)
eliminates “jaggies”
◆ Aspect Ratio Conversion
◆ Per-Pixel Video/Film detection & processing
◆ Scene Change Detection
resolution and clarity approaching that of native HD/HDV. For the producer that is mixing DV
and HDV content into the editing timeline, the Mini enables upconversion of the DV source to
HD in real time at high enough quality levels to effectively match the HDV content. The final
product may then be delivered in both SD and HD simultaneously by routing the SDI output
back through the Mini on playout. This real-time process not only saves time but also provides
quality levels much higher than is currently available within the editing applications.
➤ The Mini will convert SD video to and from HD in real time and with exceptional image quality.
◆ Proc Amp Controls
At the heart of the Mini is Silicon Optix’s Realta image processing engine, reducing overall size
while maximizing image processing capability. The result? The best possible picture from the
most flexible, powerful, and user-friendly standalone format converter.
◆ Detail Enhancement and Sharpness
◆ Embedded Audio (8- channels)
◆ Per-Pixel Temporal Recursive and Motion
➤ Mixing SD and HD content into editing timelines is a breeze, since the Mini enables
Adaptive Noise Reduction
upconversion of SD sources to HD in real time and mini’s scaled images are comparable to HD.
Real-time processing saves unimaginable time, especially when compared to CPU limited, non
real-time scaling and frame rate conversion available through non-linear editing and video
effects software applications.
Applications
• NLE real-time SD/HD ingesting
➤ The Mini has SD/HD SDI inputs and outputs, analog component, and HDMI outputs. It may be
• NLE SD/HD real-time Up/Down scaling
used equally well to feed a VTR, display, or video projector. Control is via front panel, on-screen
display or RS-232. Three Minis may be mounted in a 1RU frame. A vertical clamshell mount is
also available for desktop applications.

TV One’s CORIO2 Technology Offers More Than Meets the Eye
CORIO refers to TV One’s mission of “choreographing” video. As
video formats and standards continue to evolve, the landscape
becomes more complex. The heart of CORIO technology is its
ability to level the format playing field and allow users to easily
move between various computer, video, analog, digital, standard
and high definition video formats.
When they determine the design is finished, they freeze the code
with a known set of parameters. After that, changes or bug fixes
can only be done with external circuitry. The advantage is that the
chip can be mass produced at a lower cost if demand is sufficient.
The disadvantage is that any existing bugs are permanent and the
cost to make a new chip with corrections is prohibitive.
When other manufacturers design a video scaler or conversion
device, they look to chip manufacturers to provide a chipset for
the actual video conversion and scaling. Once a chipset is chosen,
the support circuitry is designed. However, the majority of these
chips are designed for a completely different task, primarily for
scaling incoming video to the format required for LCD and plasma
displays. These same chips are then adapted for use in standalone
video scalers, often with a high degree of success, but always with
one major limitation. The chip does only what it was originally
designed to do and handles a predetermined set of input and
output standards, resolutions and formats. Therefore, they will
never go beyond the initial capability.
CORIO2 technology is completely different. The firmware is loaded
into a FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) to perform the task.
That FPGA becomes the core of the finished product and can be
changed at any time to fix bugs, add input/output resolutions or
add new features. Since access to the FPGA is always available via
a serial interface port, new firmware can be downloaded and
upgraded in minutes. Because the actual inner working of the
FPGA is being altered, the hardware is effectively being changed
by the firmware upgrade. A user with a model several years old
can usually upgrade that unit to the same level as a brand new
version of that same model. This means that product features are
dynamic and provide “obsolescence insurance” to the end-user.

signal can be used as either the background or insert in the Picture-in-Picture window mode. Of course, it is also possible to
seamlessly switch between any of the analog inputs and the SDI input.
◆ The C2-5100/C2-5200
is ideally suited for use with LCD projectors,
projection TV systems, Plasma or HDTV displays to improve picture
quality. With its output signal format flexibility, it is assured that the
native resolution of virtually any digital display can be matched.

PRESENTATION SWITCHERS
C2-7100 • C2-7200
Beyond its versatile capabilities in converting
between analog and HD-SDI, the C2-7200
has the power of many other components ranging from a high-def video scaler and multi-format seamless switcher to a twin-window
picture-in-a-picture device, chroma/luma keyer, aspect ratio converter, logo inserter, and much more. Behind this level of functionality
are two completely independent scaling engines and two video mixers all utilizing TV One’s proprietary CORIO2 technology.
Same features as the C2-5100 and C2-5200 (respectively), PLUS
Outfitted with true 4:4:4 processing providing full-bandwidth color and precise keying (including soft keys), the device has eleven inputs
accommodating multiple HD-SDI, SD-SDI, DVI, YPbPr, RGBHV, RGBS, RGsB, YCbCr, composite, and S-Video signals, as well as all HDTV formats and any
PC resolution up to 2048 x 2048, not just pre-defined ones. A pair of independent output channels each offer SDI (SD or HD), DVI-I, any RGB format,
composite and S-Video. Armed with the ability to alter the aspect ratio of any input, the unit also allows different SDTV and HDTV images to be
intermixed in any operating mode. The C2-7100 is identical to the C2-7200 except without the SDI inputs/outputs. This results in a total of 9 Inputs,
along with the two independent output channels.

Same as the C2-7100 and C2-7200 (respectively), except
they feature the innovative CORIO EXP Front Panel
which gives the user complete functionality with 48
buttons, multi-way navigation control and integrated
LCD. It’s all located directly on the front of the unit
making on-site control easy.
The C2-7310 has all of the switching, video processing
and conversion capability of the C2-7210 plus a wide range of audio processing capabilities allowing the user to embed, de-embed,
delay, mix, route and sample rate convert digital stereo audio to satisfy even the most challenging requirements.
C2-7310 Step-up Features
The C2-7310 has full audio processing for an astonishing 48 channels of digital stereo audio - 16 in and 16 out via the external connectors, plus a
further 16 channels that can be de-embedded from the two SD-HD-SDI inputs and processed right along with the 16 external input channels. Due to
the highly flexible internal audio routing, the 16 external stereo input channels can be assigned to any of the video inputs and the 16 stereo output
channels can be assigned to any of the video outputs: Composite, YC, DVI, YPbPr, RGB, YUV or SD/HD-SDI. The 16 output channels can be embedded
in the two HD-SDI outputs and simultaneously fed to the output connectors.
The superior quality of the C2-7310 means that the full 8 channels of digital stereo audio of any frequency embedded within each of the two
SD/HD-SDI inputs can be de-embedded and processed along with a further 16 channels of AES-3id data, frequency between 24 to 96KHz, that can be
input via the HD-44 connectors, giving a total of 32 digital stereo audio inputs handled simultaneously. Each audio channel can be delayed by up to 2
seconds using exceptionally fine delay adjustment and the gain can be altered to anywhere between 0 and 800%.
A high-quality sample rate conversion enables users to increase or decrease the sample frequency on each audio channel as required while ensuring
optimum audio output. Control data, when included in an incoming audio signal can be extracted and displayed to the user. Each stereo audio output
can also be produced by down-mixing up to 3 uniquely delayed and scaled stereo audio inputs and routed to any audio output required. The C2-7310
also employs many automatic features including audio follow video and automatic audio delay to match the video processing delay.
