Two New Scalers from Gefen Provide Value Added Features for 3GSDI Displays

NAB Booth SL 3824

Las Vegas, NV – (Virtual Press Office) -- Two new GefenPRO Scalers, the HDVI to 3GSDI Scaler and the 3GSDI to 3GSDI Scaler, both come with built-in frame synchronizers that provide high performance scaling with Genlock for precise timing and signal conversion.

The GefenPRO HDVI to 3GSDI Scaler can automatically switch between DVI or HDMI inputs and output video as 3GSDI with backwards compatibility with all SDI formats. When converting HDMI, up to eight channels of audio are supported and output as S/PDIF coaxial. High resolution video can be scaled up to 1080p or 2k. Genlock frame synchronization provides advanced features such as adaptive video interlacing with edge interpolation, advanced noise reduction, alpha blending and image enhancement. The internal power supply provides better connectivity with no risk of accidental disconnection. Users access features through the on-screen menu using front-panel buttons, RS-232 or IR remote.

The GefenPRO 3GSDI to 3GSDI Scaler offers additional frame synchronization features to improve video quality and performance. It can up or down scale any SDI source to any SDI display, supporting ED-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI formats. Adjustable cadence detection, frame rate conversion, detail enhancement, and advanced noise reduction further enhance performance. High resolution video may be scaled up to 1080p or 2k. This Scaler can also be used in Genlock mode as stand-alone frame synchronizer when switching audio/video that must be precisely timed. The on-screen menu system is accessed by front-panel buttons, IR remote or RS-232 control.
