PANORAMAdtv unveils HD/SD-SDI closed-captioning encoder/decoder
Wohler Technologies’ video products division PANORAMAdtv has released the HDCC-200A HD/SD-SDI dual-channel, closed captioning encoder/decoder bridge.
A compact module that simplifies closed captioning encoding of two independent SD or HD sources, the HDCC-200A is compliant with all broadcast standards and CEA-608/708. It encodes closed captioning data into either SD Line 21 or HD VANC signals, encoding two independent sources with unique closed captioning data, or when the signal output is intended for use in different distribution, encoding two independent sources with identical data.
Occupying a single card slot, the HDCC-200A is compatible with conversion frames, including the Wohler E-card and openGear frames in 1RU, 2RU or 3RU configurations.
The device accepts HD/SD-SDI, World System Teletext (WST) and live captioning data via RS-232 or Ethernet port that accepts data in the Newfor protocol.
