Cleveland Browns selects FOR-A frame sync, converters

The Cleveland Browns football team has selected nine FOR-A FA9100 HD frame synchronizers with up/down/crossconversion. The frame synchronizers will be used within the scoreboard control room at the Cleveland Browns Stadium.

The purchase marks the team’s first step in a gradual upgrade to HD. The FA-9100 receives HD signals fed from trucks outside the stadium then downconverts the signals to SD. The SD video is then used to supply video feeds of instant replays to the stadium’s scoreboard.

The FA-9100/RPS supports all video signal formats, including SD/HD-SDI, HD analog components, SD analog components and NTSC/PAL analog composite. The selection of the FA-9100 was based on its ability to handle a number of formats.
