360 Systems adds PAL video indexing support to 2470
360 Systems has added PAL video indexing to its 2470 Broadcast Time Delay.
Throughout much of Europe, the aspect ratio of displayed images is controlled through the transmission and reception of video index signals. 360 Systems’ new software allows these active format description and aspect ratio data to be passed through with frame accuracy.
Video index data is received and transmitted on SD-SDI on lines 11 and 324, including all Class 1.1 data as defined by SMPTE RP-186-2008. The 2470 Broadcast Time Delay also supports the use of widescreen signaling (WSS) on any VBI line from 12 to 23, fields 1 and 2.
Designed to compensate for time zone differences, the 2470 Time Delay can be programmed to any delay interval required, from 20 seconds to more than 24 hours.
