snellwilcox_cvr700_hires.jpg Snell’s (SU1917, SU1717) MachHD is a compact, cost-effective motion-compensated standards converter providing cost-effective and high-quality motion-compensated HD and SD standards and format conversion with synchronization capability.

Ideal for broadcast applications such as live news and events, ingest, and playout, the compact standards converter offers multi-rate HD/SD inputs and outputs. The unit provides up/down/crossconversion — both within and between frame rates — along with aspect ratio conversion and colorspace conversion, complemented by AFD support.

The MachHD, which is part of the Kudos Plus product family, supports embedded AES (balanced and unbalanced) and analog audio. Its compatibility with the Snell & Wilcox RollCall control and monitoring system enables smooth integration into the overall plant infrastructure, and 3Gbps functionality will be introduced in Q2 2009. The MachHD has dual redundant PSU capability and is provided in a single-RU housing with remote control capability via Ethernet.
