1 FRS-1801 HD/SD Universal Video Processor/Converter
1.1
Introduction
The FRS-1801 is a highly integrated module designed to synchronize, process and delay HD and SD signals
into HD/SD hybrid plants. The FRS-1801 is a single channel card.
The FRS can accept either HD or SD inputs and will provide an HD or SD output according to the input
standard. The output path provides frame sync, video proc, color correction. The additional processing delay
should be up to 15 frames. This is necessary for Dolby E & AC3 encoders, decoders delay.
The FRS can process up to 16 channels (4 groups of embedded audio) or 8 channels (2 groups of discreet
AES) inputs/outputs. The FRS will also allow for an internal connection to other audio processing cards like
Miranda’s UAP and DAP. These boards can be used when analog audio or Dolby E decode are a
requirement.

2.1
Unpacking
Make sure the following items have been shipped with your FRS-1801. If any of the following items are
missing, contact your distributor or Miranda Technologies Inc.
• FRS-1801 HD/SD Universal Video Processor/Converter
• FRS-1801-110-DRP or FRS-1801-75-DRP Double Rear Panel. See figure 2.2
2.2
Installation in the Densité frame
The FRS-1801 and its associated rear connector panel must be mounted in a DENSITÉ frame. It is not
necessary to switch off the frame’s power when installing or removing the card. See the DENSITÉ Frame
manual for detailed instructions for installing cards and their associated rear panels.
The FRS-1801 has multiple inputs and outputs, and requires a double-width rear panel.
The FRS-1801 must be installed in the right-most of the 2 slots covered by the rear panel (as seen from the
front of the frame) in order to mate with the panel’s connectors. If it is placed in the wrong slot, the front panel
LED will flash red. Move the card to the designated slot for correct operation. No damage will result to the
card should this occur.
2.3
ABUS Connection to Companion Audio Cards
When the FRS-1801 is used in conjunction with one or two companion audio cards (Miranda’s AAP, DAP or
UAP series), the ABUS flat cable must be installed between the ABUS connector of the FRS-1801 and the
connectors on the audio cards. The ABUS flat cable is supplied with the audio card.
Figure 2.1 ABUS flat cable installation
Note: If only one audio card is used, you must use the two end connectors on the ABUS cable, and leave
the center connector unplugged

Rear Panel Connectors
Figure 2.2 FRS-1801 Rear Panels
REF IN – Studio reference input
For external synchronization, connect a black studio reference signal to the BNC labeled REF IN.
The reference input must conform to SMPTE 170M/SMPTE 318M/ITU 624-4/BUT 470-6 for standard
definition signals and SMPTE 274M / SMPTE 296M for high definition signals and is used to phase the
HD/SD SDI outputs to the studio. A reference mismatch may occur if there is a difference between the input
video format’s frame rate and the reference format’s frame rate. When a mismatch occurs, the output will
freeze to the reference frame rate and produce an input error and the card-edge Status LED will turn red to
indicate the mismatch.
Note that in the case of HD signals of the same frame rate, any reference signal may be used to genlock any
output signal, regardless of scan type (progressive or interlaced). When a 720p/tri-level sync reference signal
is used with an interlaced output, the output is synchronized but there may be a delay of one field depending
on when the synchronization started.
HD/SD SDI IN – serial digital HD/SD input
Connect the serial digital video signal, conforming to the SMPTE 292M standard for HD input signals and
SMPTE 259M standard for SD input signals, to the BNC labeled HD/SD SDI IN. The FRS-1801 will
automatically switch to the detected line format.
HD/SD SDI OUT – serial digital video outputs
The FRS-1801 provides two HD/SD SDI video outputs on BNC connectors, labeled HD/SD SDI OUT 1 and
2. The SDI video signal conforms to the SMPTE 292M and SMPTE 259M-C standard.

The GPI User Presets are contact closures to ground (GND). To select a preset (User 1 to 4) using the GPI,
simply short the preset pin to any GND pin.
•
The card detects the transition to ground
•
User presets must be configured and saved through the normal operating mode of the FRS-1801.
GPI loading is a “single load” process triggered by a transition to ground: it needs to be activated only for a
short period (around 10 milliseconds) to be detected by the card. Since it is not activated by a level, it is not
necessary to maintain the level at ground after the activation.
GPIs are not operating modes; when loaded, they change only the current card configuration.
AES OUT/GPI – AES and GPI outputs
The rear panel AES OUT/GPI connector (15-pin D-SUB) provides four discrete AES3 digital audio outputs,
plus four GPI contacts (reserved for future use).

Control options
The FRS-1801 can be controlled in two different ways:
•
The local control panel and its push-buttons can be used to move through a menu of parameters and to
adjust parameter values (see section 3.3).
•
Miranda’s iControl system can be used to access the card’s operating parameters from a remote
computer, using a convenient graphical user interface (GUI). (see section 3.4)
3.2
Card-Edge Status LED
The status monitor LED is located on the front card-edge of the FRS-1801, and is visible through the front
access door of the DENSITÉ frame. This multi-color LED indicates the status of the FRS-1801 by color, and
by flashing/steady illumination.
The chart shows how the various error conditions that can be flagged on the FRS-1801 affect the LED status.
•
If a cell is gray, the error condition cannot cause the LED to assume that status
•
If more than one LED status is possible for a particular error condition, the status is configurable.
See Section 3.4.16 for details.
•
The factory default status is shown by a ›
The LED will always show the most severe detected error status that it is configured to display, and in the chart error

Local control using the Densité frame control panel
3.3.1
Overview
Push the SELECT button on the FRS-1801 card edge (see Section 1.4) to assign the local control panel to
operate the FRS-1801. Use the control panel buttons to navigate through the menu, as described below.
All of the cards installed in a Densité frame are connected to the frame’s controller card, which handles all
interaction between the cards and the outside world. There are no operating controls located on the cards
themselves. The controller supports remote operation via its Ethernet ports, and local operation using its
integrated control panel.
The local control panel is fastened to the controller
card by a hinged connector, and when installed is
located in the front center of the frame, positioned in
front of the power supplies. The panel consists of a
display unit capable of displaying two lines of text,
each 16 characters in length, and five pushbuttons.
The panel is assigned to operate any card in the
frame by pushing the SELECT button on the front
edge of that card.

8 | FRS-1801
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
[SELECT] Gives access to the next menu level. When a parameter value is shown, pushing this button
once enables modification of the value using the [+] and [–] buttons; a second push confirms the
new value
[ESC]
Cancels the effect of parameter value changes that have not been confirmed; pushing [ESC]
causes the parameter to revert to its former value.
Pushing [ESC] moves the user back up to the previous menu level. At the main menu, [ESC]
does not exit the menu system. To exit, re-push the [SELECT] button for the card being
controlled.
If no controls are operated for 30 seconds, the controller reverts to its normal standby status, and the
selected card’s STATUS LED reverts to its normal operating mode.
3.3.2

GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
3.4.2
The Input panel
This panel allows control of the deglitcher and freeze functions. See figure 3.3.
Deglitcher tab
Mode: select OFF or ON from the Deglitcher
pulldown.
When the Deglitcher is active, the card supports a
hot-switch between two signals on the same input
without producing a freeze on the frame sync, and
without producing artifacts on the output. For this
mode to function correctly:
• The two inputs must be synchronized to the
reference
• They must be phased within one line of
each other
• They must be phased to within +/- ½ line of
the HREF of the reference signal
The offset from the VREF can be variable, but a
distance of greater than 10 lines could create an
artifact in the active video. If the two signals are
more than 1 line apart, we will see a vertical jump at
the moment of switching that is proportional to the
number of vertical lines of offset between the two
Figure 3.3 Video Input panel – Deglitcher tab
signals. This will last for only one frame.
When a reference is present and the deglitcher is
active, the card reports the difference in timing between the input and the reference when the transition
occurs.
•
If the reference is missing when the deglitcher is activated, the Input timing to reference box will
indicate “Missing reference” in red, and the reference status icon at the top of the iControl window will
turn red and show the message “Reference missing”.
•
If the deglitcher is OFF, the reference status icon will be grey, and its message will read “Reference
absent”
FRS-1801 | 13
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
To perform a glitch-free switch between two sources, they must be in the same clean switch region. A clean
switch region is contained within ± ½ line about an H=0 point in the reference signal, as shown by the dotted
lines in the figure. There is a clean switch region centered on every H interval. As you can see, vertical
alignment with the reference is not important for the deglitcher to operate properly.
You may switch between signals A, B or C, without any glitch, and also between signals DÙE and signals
FÙG. Any other transition, like AÙD, will cause a vertical image shift for one frame.
To determine whether a clean hot switch is possible, you need to determine whether the two input signals lie
in the same clean switch region. There are two ways to measure the position of the signals with respect to
the reference:
•
Use the deglitcher tab in iControl (InputÆDeglitcher)
•
Use the controller menu in Appendix 2 (videoÆtimingÆin timing to ref).
When the deglitcher mode is on, each of these sources will display the alignment offset between the
reference signal and the input signal. Knowing the offset for both input signals, you can determine if they are
in the same clean switch region. If so, any hot-switch between those two signals will be glitch less.
To determine the limits of a clean switch region, you must know the input’s line length in μs. The first region
is delimited by +½ line and -½ line of the reference. For example, with an SD (525) signal the line length is
63.5 μs and so the first region lies between -31.76 μs and 31.76 μs. Other regions can be found by adding or
removing a multiple of line length to the two boundaries.
Example: for an SD (525) input signal, we have these clean switch regions:
-1 line and -31.76 μs to 0 line and -31.76 μs
0 line and -31.76 μs to 0 line and 31.76 μs
0 line and 31.76 μs to 1 line and 31.76 μs
etc.
Practical examples:
Example 1: we have two SD (525) sources, one that indicates an offset of -25 μs with respect to the
reference (A) and the other an offset of -35 μs (B). We know that a clean switch region limit is present at -½

line, which corresponds to -31.76 μs. We can now determine that this switch will not be clean, because the
two sources are on opposite sides of the limit, and are therefore not in the same clean switch region.
Example 2: We have two SD (525) sources, one that indicates an offset of 50μs with respect to the reference
(A) and the other an offset of 40μs (B). We know that a clean switch region limit is present at + ½ line and
another one at ½ line plus one line. These correspond to 31.76μs and 95.28μs. We can now determine that
this switch will be clean, because the two sources are inside the same clean switch region.
Freeze tab
Freeze type: This is a pull-down menu with four
options – FIELD 1, FIELD 2, FRAME and BLACK. It
determines the manner in which the FRS-1801
responds to a manual freeze, a video input switch
(“hotswitch” as defined by SMPTE recommended
practice RP-168, revised January 2002), a loss of
input signal or other input errors. The four possible
options yield the following results:

Auto Freeze: This pulldown (ON/OFF) enables or disables the auto freeze function. In Auto Freeze mode, a
reference must be present to ensure a glitchless output when a freeze is activated. There are only two freeze
possibilities in Auto mode: freeze to last valid Field or freeze to black. When Auto Freeze mode is disabled,
the content of the active picture will reflect whatever garbage is present at the input but, if a reference is
present, the output synchronization will be maintained to avoid unlocking downstream equipment.
Activate Manual Freeze: Select this checkbox to immediately freeze the output according to the mode
selected in the Freeze Type pull-down.
Note: The manual freeze setting is saved in the non-volatile memory of the card. If the manual freeze is
activated and the power is cycled, the card will start in freeze mode at the next power-up and the output will
be invalid. Just turn off the manual freeze to restore the output.
In all cases, audio will be muted when there is an input error. See audio section for more information.

The Timing panel
The Timing panel provides access to timing
adjustments which affect the signal outputs. There
are three slider controls, each with a data reporting
box which shows the current value, and into which
values can be typed directly. The total delay (the
sum of the delays shown in the three data boxes) is
reported at the top of the panel.
Vertical (lines): With this adjustment, a value
ranging from 1 to the maximum number of line
according to the video format, compared to the
reference or the processing delay, may be set. This
adjustment can be used in conjunction with the
horizontal timing adjustment.
Horizontal (µs): With this adjustment, a value
ranging from zero to the equivalent of 1 horizontal
line in the current operating format (e.g. ranging
from 0 to 63.46 µs for 525-line operation; 0 to 64.00
µs for 625-line operation; etc) compared to the
reference or the frame boundary, may be set.
SD Input Additional Frame Delay: This parameter
Figure 3.10 Timing panel
affects the overall processing delay of the card. It
affects both the HD and SD output by adding supplemental frame delay to the current processing delay. This
parameter will add a delay ranging from 0 to 15 interlaced frames (steps of 33 ms in 59.94 Hz and 40 ms in
50 Hz) to the current processing delay. Without a reference, the normal processing delay is 49 lines unless
the “Enable Minimum Delay” box is checked in which case the delay is set to 4 lines. It is important to note
FRS-1801 | 17
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
that the AFD frame accuracy or the audio processing won’t work with the minimum delay checkbox checked.
With a reference, the normal processing delay will be of 1 frame. 15 frames can be added to the frame sync
delay which depends on the timings between the input and the reference.
•
3.4.5
Note that, in order to compensate for the processing delay of the Dolby-E decoder on the companion
audio card, the additional frame delay must be set to at least one (1) frame or more depending on the
module used.
The Metadata panel
Dolby tab
The Dolby metadata is used to send information
about the audio stream, e.g. program configuration,
dialnorm. Available only in HD.
Presence: The status indicator turns Green when
the metadata is detected on specified detection
line.
Detection Line: The Insertion line is used to select
on which line in the VANC the audio metadata
packet is detected. The range is from 9 to 20 in HD
and 12 to 19 or 8 to 22 for SD 525 and SD 625
respectively.
Insertion Line: Specifies on which line the packet
will be inserted at the output.
The Insertion pulldown is used to enable/disable
the insertion of Dolby Metadata, and to specify the
source:
• OFF

flag specified in the default setting region is inserted.
Delete : In this mode, all the AFD flags present at the input are deleted from the video stream and no other
flags is inserted.
Default settings area
The text box is labeled according to the mode selected in the AFD Mode pulldown:
• In PASS mode, labeled DEFAULT and always empty.
• In INSERT mode, labeled FORCED, and shows the code that is forced into the system input regardless
of the actual input code.
• In AUTO mode, labeled DEFAULT and shows the current default AFD code to be used if no valid AFD
code is detected at the input
• In DELETE mode, labeled DELETED and always empty..

Config area
Presence: The status indicator turns Green when
AFD is detected on the input signal. On an SD
input, the AFD presence will indicate the presence
of the selected AFD source only, i.e. AFD, VLI or
WSS (for 625 sources only)
Source: Selects the source of AFD information –
options are AFD (SMPTE 2016), VLI of WSS (for
625 sources only).
Figure 3.14 Metadata panel – AFD tab
Insertion Line: The Insertion line is used to select
on which line in the VANC the AFD packet (SMPTE 2016) will be inserted. It is not necessary to specify the
detection line since the card will automatically detect the incoming packet.
Insertion: The Insertion pull-down menu is used to enable or disable the insertion of AFD on the two outputs:
• On the HD output, the Ancillary Aspect Ratio packet will be inserted
• For SD outputs, a selection must be made when enabling insertion:
o 525 outputs – AFD (SMPTE 2016) or VLI
o 625 outputs – AFD (SMPTE 2016), VLI or WSS
.
Flags area
The Flags sub-section indicates which AFD flag is detected at the input and which flag is inserted at the
output.
FRS-1801 | 19
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
The Active Format Descriptor (AFD) flag is used to identify the aspect ratio and protected areas of a video
signal. The AFD flag is implemented differently in SD and HD:
• In HD, the AFD flag is sent in an ancillary packet, normally found on line 11 in the vertical ancillary space.
• In SD, the AFD flag is sent as a VLI signal (RP 186) for 525 and 625 formats, as a WSS signal (ITU-R
BT.1119-2) for PAL only, and as an AFD packet (SMPTE 2016).
The AFD flags inserted and detected act only as information for the user and no aspect ratio processing is
made by the FRS-1801.
3.4.6
The Audio Processing panel
The Audio Processing panel provides full audio
processing and delay parameters for the input
embedded or discrete audio channels. These
parameters affect both the output audio channels
(embedded and AES) and the audio channels sent
to the DAP or UAP companion cards.
Group Detected sub-section
Status indicators turn green when audio groups 1,
2, 3 or 4 are detected.
Discrete AES Detected sub-section
Signal presence indicators monitor the presence of
AES inputs. The indicators turn green when AES
input signals are detected. The signal presence
warning color can be configured by the user in the
Alarm Config panel (Sect. 3.4.16)
Signal Presence sub-section
Signal presence indicators monitors the audio
channels presence and are related to the Silence
parameters defined in the Ch XX/Silence tab (see
details below): the indicator is green when an
Figure 3.16 Audio Processing – CH 1-4 levels tab
active signal is present and configurable when a
silence is detected according to the “no signal” threshold and the channel detection warning. The signal
presence warning color can be configured by the user in the Alarm Config panel (Sect. 3.4.16)
CH 1-4, CH 5-8, CH 9-12 and CH 13-16 Tabs
Each of these tabs controls Levels, Fixed Delays and Silence detection for four audio channels; each
channel is provided with a set of controls.
Levels sub-tab: grouped by pair of channels, each channel has the following controls:
Level (slider and input box): Sets the audio gain from -96 to 12 dB in 0.5 dB steps. For non-PCM
audio, the level value is overridden to 0 dB.
Mute (speaker button): Mutes the selected audio channel
Phase Invert: When checked, inverts the selected audio channel phase.
Lock: “Locks” both channel sliders together for levels and delay (coarse only), so that moving one
slider moves the other one as well.
20 | FRS-1801
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
Fixed Delay sub-tab: although the FRS-1801 automatically matches audio and video throughput timing,
provision is made for the user to insert an audio delay offset from the nominal value, in order to deal with
problems such as lip sync errors and audio phase alignment in the incoming feed. For each channel, two
sliders allow the delay to be adjusted.

Silence sub-tab
This tab sets the card’s behavior in the event of a
loss or absence of audio signal. The Signal
Presence indicators are then triggered according to
these settings:
Silence Detect: select which audio channels to
monitor for audio silences by checking their boxes.
This enables the signal presence indicators to
change color when there is no signal present which
activates the audio silence alarm. Otherwise, when
checkboxes are not checked, the signal presence
indicators turns grey when there is no signal present
and the audio silence alarm is not activated
Threshold: Signal absence is declared when the
signal level is lower than the signal threshold for a
duration longer than the No Signal Delay. The
threshold can be set to OFF or to a specific value: 72, -66, -60, -54, -48 dBFS. The default value is –60

designated as the .1 channel. The downmix can be
done using any of the 16 audio channels processed
by the audio processor using the Input Channels
controls in the interface.
Input Channels area: Use the 6 pulldowns to select
the source channels for the downmix process.
Output Channels area: The downmix stereo pair

signal. The input signals on channels 7 and 8 or 15 and 16 are discarded.
Levels: This pulldown selects the downmix levels mode:
• AUTO:
the Center and Surround downmix levels and the dialogue normalization (dialnorm) level are
taken from the Dolby metadata embedded in the video input, when present. If no Dolby
metadata is present, the downmix levels default to those currently set by the user in the
Center and Surround pulldowns. The LFE downmix level is taken from the LFE pulldown.
• MANUAL: the user sets the downmix levels via the CENTER, SURROUND and LFE pulldowns:
◊
CENTER – sets the center channel downmix level to the selected value
[+3 dB, +1.5dB, 0 dB, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, -4.5 dB, -6 dB, mute]

3.4.16 The Alarm Config panel
This panel allows the alarm reporting of the FRS1801 to be configured. The panel opens in a new
window when the button is clicked, and can be
resized if needed.
The panel is organized in columns.
Status/Name
This contains an expandable tree listing all the
alarms reported by this FRS-1801 card.
•
Each alarm name includes an icon that
shows its current status
•
Some alarms may be text-only and the
alarm status is shown in the name and not
by a status icon
The Card LED, Overall alarm and GSM
contribution columns contain pulldown lists that
allow the level of contribution of each individual
alarm to the alarm named in the column heading
to be set.
•
If there is no arrowhead in the box, there is
no pulldown and the alarm is not userconfigurable
• Card LED
This column allows configuration of the
contribution of selected individual alarms to the
status LED located on the front card edge. The
Card LED status is shown at the bottom of the
alarm tree in the Status/Name column.
• Overall Alarm
Figure 3.38 Alarm Configuration panel
This column allows configuration of the
contribution of each individual alarm to the Overall Alarm associated with this card. The Overall Alarm is
shown in the upper left corner of the iControl panel, and also appears at the bottom of the Status/Name
column.
• GSM Contribution
This column allows configuration of the contribution of each individual alarm to the GSM Alarm Status
associated with this card. GSM is a dynamic register of all iControl system alarms, and is also an alarm
provider for external applications. The possible values for this contribution are related to the Overall alarm
contribution:
• If the Overall alarm contribution is selected as Disabled, the GSM alarm contribution can be set to any
available value
• If the Overall alarm contribution is selected as any level other than disabled, the GSM contribution is
forced to follow the Overall Alarm.
FRS-1801 | 33
GUIDE TO INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
Levels associated with these alarms:
The pulldown lists may contain some or all of the following options:
The alarm makes no contribution (black icon)
The alarm is of minor importance (yellow icon)
The alarm is of major importance (orange icon)
The alarm is of critical importance (red icon)
The alarm exists but has no effect (used for text and composite alarms)
Shortcut: if you click in one of the columns beside a major heading in the Status/Name column (where
there is no pulldown shown), you will open an “invisible” pulldown that lets you assign a level to all alarms
in that section of the column simultaneously.
Log Events
iControl maintains a log of alarm events associated with the card. The log is useful for troubleshooting and
identifying event sequences. Click in the checkbox to enable logging of alarm events for each individual
alarm.
At the bottom of the window are several other controls
Overall follow LED
Click in the checkbox to force the Overall alarm to be
identical to the Card LED status
•
All Overall alarms for which there is a Card LED
alarm will be forced to match the Card LED alarm

Automation Using RS-422
Some card behaviors can be controlled using the RS-422 port. This is especially useful for automation
systems. For detailed information about the protocol including the handshaking, please refer to the Oxtel
Series Automation Protocol manual. The "Transport Layer" chapter gives more details about the
encapsulation of the command strings described below.
In the current version, we use the "Load image R0" command from the protocol to load User Presets, Factory
Defaults or ARC Presets.
3.5.1
•
Load Image R0 Command
In the original protocol, the R0 command has 2 parameters which have been renamed "Layer" and
"Oper_String" for this application. The supported values for each of these parameters are defined in the
tables below.
Layer '0' is used to load User Presets or the factory defaults.

Example:
To recall the USER_1 set of parameter, the " " command string should be encapsulated and sent by the
automation to the card. In this case, the final string would be:
<STX0>R00 0USER_1:<CRC low><CRC high>
Where <STX0>, <CRC low> and <CRC high> are described in the Oxtel Series Automation Protocol manual.
