DK-Technologies is pleased to announce that South Korea’s Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) has purchased seven PT5300 HD-SD VariTime Sync Generators and three PT5211 VariTime Change Over Units. The sale was made in early November by the company’s local distributor, PI International.
The units were chosen by SBS, one of four major broadcasters in the country, following a competitive tender and are split between two new HD OB vans and one new HD-capable studio.
“In Korea, analogue broadcasting will cease in 2012,” comments Mr. Il Sik Ro of PI International. “Many broadcasters are therefore preparing to move to digital HD before switchover and, as a result, we think there will be a high demand for products such as the PT5300 and PT5211 over the next two years.”
DK’s PT5300 is a modular, multi-standard HD and SD gen-lockable sync generator with front panel and remote control. It supports 21 HD formats in addition to SD-SDI(525/625), standard B-Burst PAL and NTSC.
The PT5211 modular change-over unit reliably switches between SPG's. The unit accepts both analogue and digital video signals and AES3 and change-over operation can be either manual or in auto-sense mode.
DK-Technologies develops and produces audio meters, video sync and test signal generators, as well as video waveform monitors and colour analysers both for LCD and CRT monitors. Alongside its worldwide distributor network, DK-Technologies also operates branch offices in Denmark, Germany, UK and USA. www.dk-technologies.com
