Features

SD/HD up/down-conversion

 

SD/SD aspect ratio conversion


HD/HD cross-conversion (720p/1080i)


Up/down/cross-conversion with both the input and converted formats on SD/HD SDI outputs (both synchronized)


HD cross-conversion with simultaneous down-converted SDI output


Digital and analog I/O flexibility


FS1 is loaded with comprehensive I/O that lets it handle the widest range of analog and digital signals - and convert between them. Perfect for use in broadcast and post production environments, FS1 features Dual HD/SD-SDI inputs and outputs, comprehensive multi-channel audio connections and I/O for analog video equipment, including HD and SD component. For audio, FS1 supports 8-channel AES, balanced analog, or 16-channel embedded audio with full flexibility and audio processing controls. You can choose from any of the 4 groups of embedded audio for 8-channel output on the AES or analog audio

 

Remote configuration and control: FS units are network ready and support SNMP monitoring and web-based remote control. Units can be connected to any Ethernet network via the built-in 10/100/1000MB Ethernet port, allowing control and configuration of multiple FS units from any web browser on a connected computer. Configurations can be saved and applied to multiple units, ensuring consistency and quick configuration in large installs. To integrate smoothly with the existing automation of a facility, FS1 can also receive external GPI commands to trigger a variety of functions, such as freezing an input source

 

Closed caption conversion: FS1 supports closed captioning and the conversion of closed captioning between SD and HD formats - including full conversion of CEA-608 captions to the CEA-708 standard. FS1 can preserve closed captioning even when converting between formats, removing the need to re-insert closed captions after conversion

 

Active Format Description: Automatically sets Active Format Description information to match the converted signal. This means AFD information does not have to be inserted after conversion and provides accurate information for devices that understand AFD

Up-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: full-screen
  • Pillar box 4:3: results in a 4:3 image in center of screen with black sidebars
  • Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
  • Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill full screen
  • Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change


Down-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: full-screen
  • Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
  • Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size


Cross-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • 1080i to 720P
  • 720P to 1080i
