  • Proc amp providing adjustments for Y level / U level / V level / overall Gain / Hue / Sharpness and Gamma (remote only)
  • Selectable Luminance and Chrominance filters (remote only)
  • Output to bars or black if input is lost.
  • Vertical blanking (VBI) passed or blanked
  • Remote control, status monitoring and error reporting possible when used with LYNX control system
  • Hot Swappable


Featuring 10 bit D-A conversion with 4x oversampling and a choice of component video, composite and S-Video outputs, the C DA 5011 provides a flexible and cost effective solution for the most demanding broadcast D-A conversion applications.

Multiple output configurations enable the converter to be used as a SDI to YUV (or RGB) converter with a simultaneous composite and YC output. Or It can be configured to YUV (or RGB) with 3 simultaneous composite outputs. If the application is purely composite video then the configuration can be changed to 3 composite outputs and 3 reference outputs (black burst).

The integral line synchronizer with 3 lines of programmable delay makes this ideal for applications with asynchronous video inputs.

10 bit digital processing throughout combined with 4 x oversampling preserves the highest level of quality possible. The Internal color bar test pattern generator and automatic default to bars (or black) if the input is lost adds to module flexibility.

When used with a LYNX controller a host of additional features are available (see over) this includes a powerful video proc amp with adjustable Y gain / U gain / V gain / Brightness / Hue / Sharpness and 2 Gamma curves plus a variety of filters.

Microprocessor control and on board flash ram provide basic local control capability via the integrated configuration switch and alphanumeric display. Full remote control, status monitoring and error reporting is possible when using the APPolo control system
