The PDM 1284 B is a versatile AES audio embedder and de-embedder designed for a wide range of SDI video formats up to 3Gbit. It supports unbalanced AES3id audio I/O using 75 Ohm BNC connections.
Audio groups are selected using the rotary switches, and its possible to embed and de-embed additional audio groups by cascading modules together. Simultaneous embedding and de-embedding means the module will de-embed and output the audio from the selected audio group before overwriting with new audio (if required). The module automatically detects audio formats and will deactivate the sample rate converters to preserve encoded bit streams such as DolbyE.
The “auto black” mode uses a black video frame if no SDI input is present. This allows the module to embed audio even when no video source is available. This mode is useful if the module is being used in an “audio only” application. A 1 kHz test tone generator is included for audio testing purposes.
The module is also compatible with the yelloGUI software package, which provides access to a host of additional internal settings which includes manual insertion of metadata (AFD,WSS,VI)
An SDI fiber input and output is also provided with a variety of plug in SFP options available
