Gefen Shows New 3GSDI Solutions for Broadcasters Seeking to Expand their System Functionality

(Virtual Press Office) -- Stand 1-M80, Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Gefen will introduce four new products supporting 3GSDI systems at ISE. The GefenPRO 3GSDI Audio Embedder will select one of four independent AES/EBU digital audio streams and implant it into the 3GSDI signal, allowing different audio streams to be re-assigned on the input side.

The Gefen PRO 3GSDI Audio DeEmbedder will extract audio from a 3GSDI source and output it as one of four digital AES/EBU audio streams, allowing individual digital audio channels to be re-arranged on the output. Both solutions offer audio delay adjustments for the selected audio stream to synchronize video and audio performance. Resolutions up to 1080p are fully supported. RS-232 control features on both the Embedder and DeEmbedder provide an easy method of selecting and routing audio. Each model offers loop-out connectivity for a display to monitor the unprocessed 3GSDI signal.

The GefenPRO HDVI to 3GSDI Scaler allows users to switch between either an HDMI or DVI input and convert and scale the output to 3GSDI with frame synchronization for an impeccable performance. The GefenPRO 3GSDI to 3GSDI Scaler w/frame synchronizer enables a high quality video output when using different SDI sources and displays, which can be up or downscaled to match the ideal output. Adjustable cadence detection, frame rate conversion, detail enhancements and advanced noise reduction all improve video output quality. A built-in pattern generator with color bars and hatch patterns gives the ability to further fine-tune video integrity. Genlock support ensures impeccable timing between connected devices.
