Same funcitionality, now with 3G SDI
The ImagePRO™ is a powerful, all-in-one signal processor that accepts a wide range
of video input signals and processes them into a number of different signal formats to
meet the video requirements of virtually any application.
Incorporating Athena™, Barco’s custom-designed image processing technology, the
ImagePRO is a high performance video scaler, scan converter, switcher and transcoder
in one. The ImagePRO is the ideal solution for converting RGB, HDTV, Component,
S-video, composite (NTSC, PAL and SECAM), DVI, SDI and 3G HD/SDI into a user
selectable video format. ImagePRO supports a wide variety of analog and digital
output formats including broadcast and VESA standards along with many native plasma
formats. ImagePRO users may also create custom output formats to support unique
display requirements.
The ImagePRO-3G includes universal inputs, aspect ratio conversion, memory presets,
test patterns, vertical lock (Genlock), picture adjustments, motion adaptive deinterlacing, and 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown detection to name a few.
Technology brief
Athena™ scaler
Athena™ is a high-performance image
processing technology, that provides the
highest possible image quality while
minimizing processing delays. The architecture supports 1:1 video sampling and
processes video at 10-bits per color channel to maintain image fidelity. Horizontal
and vertical filtering techniques are used
to provide crisp, clean images to support
both extreme upconversion and downconversion operations such as prescaling for LED applications.
What is 3G?
The ImagePRO 3G supports the new
SMPTE 424M protocol for SDI inputs and
outputs. Previously, HDSDI only supported 1080i @60. 3G SDI provides for
the transmission of 1080p HD signals
running up to 60 fps signals over a
single coaxial cable. Professional grade
cable can carry these signals out to 130
meters (425 feet). By supporting progressive HD signals, the ImagePRO can
reduce processing latency to only a few
milliseconds.
Aspect ratio conversion and control
Wide-screen formats are becoming increasingly popular. It is often necessary
to convert video between formats with
different inherent aspect ratios. For example, wide-screen material shot in 16:9
format is often converted for display on
a standard television screen with a 4:3
aspect ratio. ImagePRO supports conversion between image formats in all common aspect ratios. In addition, user control of custom aspect ratios is provided.
Pan and zoom
ImagePRO supports flexible pan and
zoom operations. The Pan and Zoom
controls can be used to see very fine
detail in an area of interest of the input
image or to compress an input image to
form a very small output window.
Genlock/Vertical lock
True blackburst genlock capability with
SCH-phase adjustment is provided for
the broadcast quality NTSC and PAL output. All output formats including HDTV
may be vertically locked to the blackburst signal. HV Lock capability is provided to allow the output to be locked to
externally applied high resolution sync
signals. When a non-broadcast output
is selected, the Vertical Lock feature can
be enabled to lock the output frame rate
to the input frame rate or an externally
supplied vertical sync. Vertical locking
eliminates frame rate conversion problems that would otherwise result in motion artifacts or allows multiple units to
have their outputs timed together.
Memory presets
ImagePRO has 64 independent memory
presets. The memories save sizing, centering, detail, contrast, and brightness
information.
Enhanced digital processing
10-bit processing provides improved
signal-to-noise ratio and preserves dynamic range to improve image fidelity.
This is especially apparent in dark regions and areas of smooth, slightly varying tonal values.
