The PVD 1800 is a broadcast quality compact SDI frame synchronizer for professional applications in Broadcast, Post Production and Pro A/V markets.
The PVD 1800 features multiformat support for SDI formats up to 3Gbit/s with optional fiber optic I/O which can be configured to automatically switch between the electrical and optical input if a signal loss is detected.
Video processing utilizes robust “flywheel” synchronization that will accommodate a wide variety of low quality asynchronous SDI sources. All embedded audio is extracted and delayed automatically to match the video processing delay. Audio is free from disturbances even when dropping and adding frames. The module also provides up to 30 frames of programmable output delay, adjustable in frames, lines and pixels.
Broadcast Quality Scaler
An integrated scaler can be used for high quality Up/Down/Cross conversion. When using the yelloGUI confrol software, it is also possible to select (extract) a region of interest from the incoming signal and display full frame on the output.
Cross Lock and Frame Rate Conversion
The frame synchronizer is fully cross lock compatible, meaning it can cross lock between different standards. With a specific reference signal connected the synchronizer will drop or add frames to achieve a correctly synchronized (frame rate converted) SDI output. During all conversions precise audio video timing is preserved and no “pops” or ”clicks” or any audio disturbances will be present (even while dropping and adding frames)
Level A / Level B Conversion
The module supports both Level A and Level 3 3G SDI signals, and can also be used to convert between the two standards. New equipment from other manufacturers sometimes only supports 3G Level B, which is problematic for legacy 3G Equipment which only supports Level A, basically rendering ti obsolete. The PVD 1800 can be used to convert between Level A and Level B (and visa versa) if required to solve these problems.
The module is fully compatible with the yelloGUI software package, so the module can be configured / controlled using a PC or MAC
