The P VD 5800 is a low cost utility SDI frame synchronizer which can be used for basic SDI synchronization issues in broadcast. The module offers multiformat support for SDI formats up to 3Gbit/s (auto-detect)

The module 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 62 frames of programmable output delay, adjustable in frames, lines and pixels.
Microprocessor control and on-board Flash RAM enable configurations and settings to be stored within the module.

Remote control, status monitoring and error reporting is possible when using the LYNX APPolo Control System.
