Snell introduces new modular infrastructure components

Snell introduced 24 new products in the company's extensive IQ Modular intelligent infrastructure range at the recent HD World Conference and Exhibition. Compatible with emerging 3Gb/s standards, as well as current analog, SD, and HD formats, these new components are smart, flexible, centrally controlled building blocks that support a seamless transition to HDTV and 3Gb/s operations. In addition to 3Gbps/HD/SD support, the components announced feature advanced solutions for fiber-optic conversion and Dolby E/D processing. The new components include a new processing platform designed to handle all audio and video processing tasks. Multiple products and variants within this platform allow broadcasters to combine cost- and space-saving single-function modules into complete solutions with the specific functionality required.
