General Information
The HDSDI to Composite Converter receives a single (SDI, HDSDI, or 3G SDI) input and
converts it to either one of the two SDI LOOP through outputs or to a single
VGA/composite output. This converter also provides the added functionality of digital
audio output. To ensure compatibility across the globe an PAL/NTSC switch is another
added feature for standard video.
The FDSDI-COMP converter provides the ability to interface video from DVD players, TV
receivers, or iPad/iPods to Composite switches or displays.

S-Video/Composite
Recommended cable for s-video/composite and audio purposes is PIC 75 Ohm Coax,
P/N V76261. This is a lightweight, flexible, and low signal loss cable which meets FAA
flammability requirements of FAR 23.1359(d), FAR 25.853(a) and FAR 25.869(a)(4).
Similar aviation coaxial cable can be used from other vendors, as well. Some aircraft are
prone to AC noise. If noise is observed on Composite Video signals that use standard
Coax Cabling, then we recommend adding to the composite source a 75 Ohm video
isolation transformer such as Deerfield Laboratory, Inc. Part No. 162-1
(www.deerfieldlab.com, (650) 632-4090). In most cases this should be added to the video
output of the source. Coax cables should be terminated using solder sleeve coaxial cable
terminators, Raychem P/N: CWT-4174-W122-5/9.
Power
This is a 28VDC device that requires 250mA of power to operate, a minimum of 22 AWG
wire is recommended for Power and Ground applications.
