CSI Previews New Scan Do HD at NAB

Communications Specialties Inc. (CSI), a developer of fiber optic transmission and computer-video technology products, will offer attendees a sneak peek of its Scan Do HD -- the newest member of its scan converters -- at NAB2006.

The all-digital Scan Do HD converts DVI input, at resolutions up to 1920x1080, to HD or SD SDI output, providing broadcast-quality video images. It supports all SMPTE HD-SDI output resolutions up to 1080i, and SD-SDI resolutions (NTSC and PAL), making it the most versatile model in its Scan Do family, according to the company.

Scan Do HD offers features designed specifically for the broadcaster, including the ability to genlock both the HD and SD SDI outputs to tri-level sync or black burst with full phasing control. It offers complete image processing controls, H&V zoom and positioning, and profile storage/retrieval. The 1RU Scan Do HD includes SMPTE 292 and 297 compatible fiber optic output, along with two coaxial outputs.

Scan Do HD will be available in the second half of 2006.

CSI will be in Booth SL2958.
