Snell & Wilcox adds multifunction decoding and HDTV conversion to modular line

February 6, 2006


The IQUDC Series HDTV up-, down-, crossconverter modules are designed for multirate broadcast operations or variable input/output environments.

Snell & Wilcox has introduced a series of new IQ Modular broadcast infrastructure products for video decoding and HDTV conversion.

The IQDEC04 series synchronizer/decoder provides 12-bit “Golden Gate” decoding technology and compression-friendly noise reduction to deliver better picture quality while minimizing MPEG bit usage. The IQDEC’s 3-D decoding algorithms extract more information from analog picture sources.

A full-frame synchronizer with horizontal and vertical phasing controls allows the output to be timed to a facility’s master clock. Proc. amp controls and a built-in noise reducer provide a complete signal conditioning solution in a single-width module.

The IQUDC series HDTV up-, down-, crossconverters offer operation for multirate broadcast operations or variable I/O environments. IQUDC devices convert SD-SDI signals to HD-SDI and vice versa and cross convert HD-SDI signals of the same frame rate. Features include a fixed-mode aspect ratio converter and closed caption support for analog line 21 formats.

With full proc. amp and synchronization built-in, the IQUDC can serve as an incoming lines module on the front end, as an HD-to-SD or SD-to-HD converter on the back end, or as a stand-alone aspect ratio converter, with or without conversion. It also handles both embedded PCM and non-PCM audio and is capable of processing up to 16 channels of embedded audio alongside the video.
