Crystal Vision to highlight new TANDEM HD
At IBC2006, Crystal Vision will showcase its newly introduced TANDEM HD, a single embedder or de-embedder for either one or two groups of analog or digital audio.
The TANDEM HD can be used as an embedder for one or two groups of AES or analog audio or as a de-embedder for one or two groups of analog or digital audio. The TANDEM HD can also embed one group and de-embed the other.
Functionality is defined by input and output piggyback modules that fix on to the motherboard, with one piggyback used for one audio group and two piggybacks for two groups. The ability to work with SDI as well as all common HD formats brings further flexibility to this versatile board.
Full channel shuffling is provided by a 16 x 8 mono router, which allows the user to rearrange the audio tracks between the two groups. Audio replace is also available, meaning an input piggyback can be used to overwrite one or two of the original audio channels from the SDI feed. An optional audio delay of up to 60ms will compensate for any video processing.
