Yamaha adds HD broadcast serial digital interface card to MY Series
At the upcoming NAB Show, Yamaha (Booth N3838) will debut a new MY Series (mini-YGDAI) card, the MY8-SDI-D demultiplexer, designed specifically for broadcast applications. HD-SDI is a format widely used with HDTV, normally transmitting one channel of uncompressed HDTV video and 16 channels of PCM audio signals (in groups of four), along with time code and related data.
The Yamaha MY8-SDI-D enables the input of HD-SDI embedded audio signals directly to the host Yamaha digital console or digital mix engine. It features one HD-SDI input with one HD-SDI-through output, replacing the need for conventional converters to feed Yamaha digital consoles. Of the 16 audio channels in HD-SDI, eight are selectable (two groups of four).
The new Yamaha MY8-SDI card can synchronize to either video or audio signals and is installed via I/O slots in Yamaha’s digital mixers and mix engines. I/O options allow direct interface to EtherSound, CobraNet, AES/EBU, MADI, ADAT, mLAN and other formats.
