UHD1000 is a flexible UHD-1 processing unit able to process and translate both Quadrant (square division) and 2SI (two sample interleave) quad-link formats. Converting to or from 4K to HD/SD allows repurposing of existing assets, and all common video and audio processing tasks are also covered. Find out below how the UHD1000 is used in SAM’s UHD real time standards conversion solutions.
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 an increasingly IP and COTS oriented world SAM has made significant strides to convert the hardware based market leading Alchemist XF software product to real time capability. We’ve succeeded in creating Alchemist XS which is a real time, SMPTE 2110 and COTS based software tool for up to and including UHD standards conversion.
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 testing has revealed that by passing each component of a 3G/s 2SI UHD produces excellent and convenient UHD standards converted results. If 12G serial or square division transport is the preferred source the SAM’s IQGBX 12G to four wire gear box can be used as both input and output processor. Should four wire square division signals be preferred the SAM UHD 1000 is an ideal tool for input and output processing, converting easily to and from 2SI.
Where budgets are tight and the high cost of phase correlation cannot be justified by using SAM’s motion compensated standards convertors as above with appropriate input and output processing will also yield excellent results. SAM offers the 1RU processing solution KudosPro Motion MC2000-IQ with two fitted modular IQMCC30 cards. This provides four channels of motion compensated conversion in just 1RU of space enabling UHD standards conversion in real time.
Securing overall performance is essential to maintaining end-user satisfaction, which in turn results in sustaining and growing revenue. It is important to take steps to limit the risk of incidents taking place through fault prevention and planning and, if incidents do occur, to ensure that downtime is as short as possible.
