Extron Introduces New Scalers for 3G-SDI and HDMI Cross Conversion
Extron’s new DSC 3G-HD A and the DSC HD-3G A scalers are 3G-SDI and HDMI cross converters. The DSC 3G-HD A converts 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI video signals to HDMI, while the DSC HD-3G A converts HDMI to 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI. Both products feature Extron video signal processing with 1080i deinterlacing, Deep Color processing, aspect ratio control and additional processing features for optimal format conversion and image quality. Selectable output rates are available from standard definition to HDTV 1080p/60 and 2K, plus 1920×1200 for the DSC 3G-HD A. For both products, audio from the analog stereo input or the digital video input may be embedded onto the video output. The DSC 3G-HD A and DSC HD-3G A are built for professional AV integration with many convenience features, including a user-friendly front panel interface, internal test patterns, memory presets and control via RS-232, USB or on-screen menus.
The DSC 3G-HD A and DSC HD-3G A offer several features that enhance and simplify AV system integration. Both scalers feature input equalization which conditions incoming 3G-SDI or HDMI signals to compensate for signal loss over long input cables. The DSC 3G-HD A includes an SDI input loop-through with reclocking to eliminate high frequency jitter. The DSC HD-3G A features a genlock input with loop-through and two simultaneous 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI outputs.
Enhanced audio capabilities for both products include audio embedding, input gain and attenuation controls, and input audio muting. For the DSC 3G-HD A, analog stereo audio, or up to four pairs of AES3 audio channels from the SDI input can be embedded onto the HDMI output. With the DSC HD-3G A, analog stereo audio or HDMI multi-channel PCM audio can be embedded onto the SDI outputs.
