datasheet for ACS2048 by Barco
Alternative content switcher
As the ideal peripheral for all digital cinema installations, the ACS­2048 is an
8x1 switcher that accepts "universal" input formats, and outputs 12­bit twin
DVI at 2048 x 1080 ­ one of the digital cinema standards. With a high­quality
scaler at its core, upconverting any input format is as simple as
"auto­acquiring" and selecting the desired input.
However, disguised as a switcher, ACS­2048 is really a pathway to new
revenue streams for your facility. By enabling "alternate" content to be
displayed in the digital cinema resolution, your theater's role as a presentation
facility for events, businesses, conventions, town­hall meetings and so much
more ­ becomes a reality.
Key benefits
⋅ "Universal" inputs support HD/SDI, SD­SDI, DVI, Analog, Composite, and
S­video formats
⋅ Twin link 12­bit DVI outputs upconvert all inputs to 2048 x 1080
⋅ Motion adaptive de­interlacing and advanced noise reduction circuits are
employed throughout to maintain superb image quality
⋅ User­friendly front panel provides intuitive "local" control
⋅ A standard HDCP (High­Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) "decrypted
input" and "encrypted output" path enables copy­protected content to be
displayed at digital cinema resolutions, while maintaining the highest degree
of security for the copyright
