Harris to unveil four new features for Leitch X75 converter

Harris will demonstrate a range of new features for its Leitch X75M-PATH multiple path up-, down-, cross converter synchronizer at NAB2006.

The X75, which combines SD to HD upgradeability with up-, down-, cross conversion, SD/HD frame sync and extensive video and audio processing capabilities in a 1RU package, allows broadcasters to do much more with less equipment.

Harris will unveil four new features for the product, including MPEG-4 monitoring streaming, video-to-audio (V2A) timing measurement, eight AES I/Os with a 32-channel audio option and an integrated Dolby E encoder option.

The MPEG-4 monitoring streaming option provides a Common Image Format (CIF) resolution with AAC audio streaming to the Leitch CCS Navigator and CCS Pilot software, QuickTime 7.0 and NUCLEUS user customizable control panels.

The new V2A option supplies a point-to-point, out-of-service test for links, which provides a measurement with millisecond accuracy and corrects video-to-audio alignment.
