Extron Debuts SDI to DVI and Component Converter
Extron debuted the DVC 501 SD, which converts SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI serial digital video signals to DVI-D and analog RGB or component video formats. It extracts embedded AES3 audio, automatically equalizes incoming SDI signals to optimize transmission over long cables, and includes RS-232 serial control. The DVC 501 SD is ideal for applications including television production, medical imaging, military simulation, houses of worship, and live events that require interfacing SDI signals from broadcast-type sources to professional/consumer-level displays and signal distribution systems that only accept DVI or analog signals.
The DVC 501 SD is compliant with SMPTE 259M, 292M, 424M, and ITU digital video standards. It accepts data rates from NTSC and PAL to HDTV 1080p/60 and 2048×1080. An input loop-through delivers reshaped and restored multi-rate SDI signals for re-transmission over long cables. The RGB output can be set for RGBHV, RGBS, and RGsB. Bi-level or tri-level sync can be selected when the unit is set for component video output.
