360 Systems to unveil 2470HD Time Delay
360 Systems will introduce the 2470HD Time Delay as a reliable way to compensate for time zone differences at IBC2009. For instance, feeds to affiliates in western time zones can be delayed or a local station can delay incoming programs to accommodate the schedule. Delays up to 24 hours can be programmed, allowing storage of a full day's content for emergency use.
A visually lossless form of JPEG2000 encoding produces high image quality without the blocking or motion artifacts associated with MPEG. Program inputs and outputs are HD-SDI, paralleled with HDMI outputs for convenient monitoring.
Sixteen embedded audio channels are included. Alternately, two discrete analog audio channels can be connected through rear-panel XLR connectors. 360 Systems bit-for-bit data handling ensures correct playback of Dolby or other forms of surround sound.
