Such advanced processing allows re-purposing of existing or new assets, as well as covering all common video and audio processing tasks.
Converting to or from 4K to HD/SD allows repurposing of existing assets, and all common video and audio processing tasks are also covered.
Real time standards conversion for ultra-high definition is needed to preserve the high quality expected in international exchanges. SAM has 3 solutions for UHD standards conversion to suit different requirements and budgets.
In SDI based systems there are commonly different methods of transport over physical connection for UHD signals; 12G serial, four wire square division and four wire 2 sample interleave (2SI). Our extensive frame rate conversion testing has revealed that passing each component of a 3G/s UHD signal as 2SI produces excellent UHD standards conversion results. If 12G serial 2SI transport is the preferred source SAM’s UHD1200 is an ideal tool for 12G to four wire gearboxing and can be used as both input and output processor. Should four wire square division signals be preferred then either SAM’s UHD1100 or UHD1200 can be used to convert easily to and from 2SI.
Where budgets and space are constrained SAM can still provide excellent conversion results using Kudos Pro motion compensated technology. SAM offers the 1RU processing solution KudosPro MC2000-IQ with two modular IQMCC30 cards installed. Using the same 2SI approach this provides four channels of motion compensated conversion in just 1RU of space enabling UHD standards conversion in a compact and cost effective package.
