Algolith adds line delay, downconverter to Algogear solutions
Algolith expanded its Algogear series at IBC2008 with the introduction of new downconversion and line delay solutions.
The new downconversion and line delay solutions add more functionality, flexibility and choice to the repurposable Algogear platform to address the evolving needs of broadcast, cable, IPTV and satellite providers.
The Algogear XVC-1001-DC downconverter provides high-quality conversion from HD to SD video formats. It supports embedded audio (16 channels, four groups), closed-captioning and time code information. The XVC-1001-DC-BF provides additional background fill capabilities.
The Algogear VLD-1002-MD video line delay is designed to delay in both SD and HD on up to two channels. Delay programming can be added in time units or video units, like pixels, lines or frames.
