Snell to introduce new IQ format converter at NAB Show

At the 2013 NAB Show, Snell is introducing a new IQ format converter range that provides quality conversion at an affordable price.

The cost-effective video format converter modules provide high-quality conversion of common SD, HD, and 3Gb/s formats for broadcast systems. In addition to conversion, the new modules can perform a host of video, audio and metadata functions.

Snell is also unveiling the IQQSM range of 3Gb/s/HD/SD-SDI quad-split monitors, which are well suited for local monitoring with LCD displays. These IQ modules enable local monitoring of four 3G/HD/SD-SDI input signals along with bar graph displays of eight channels of embedded audio. Equally suited to monitoring studio or outside broadcast camera feeds, they also have an SDI output that allows the signal to be routed to other areas in the facility or to storage.
