The Link Electronics PDP-886 is a Closed Caption encoder for NTSC and PAL systems with decoder; data channels and text select are offered for user selection. The required input signal is SDI; this unit will then insert caption data on line 21 of field one or field two for analog output and encode for SDI. It will also read caption data and decode for display.
Encoding can be NTSC, PAL, on field 1 or field 2 of line 21; this encoding works well with the old system and with updated FCC specifications.
This unit is V-Chip compatible, therefore does not let the closed caption signal interfere with the V chip information.
This unit will auto detect the incoming television system signal and adjust to the correct parameters.
This caption device allows SDI input with Closed Caption and outputs an SDI signal as well, for those studios changing over to digital.
Serial control is handled via two RS-232/422 ports; two microprocessors are incorporated via two 9-pin ports.
Built in Error Detection and Handling processor can monitor the incoming signal for impairments and insert new EDH data.
A test function is actuated with a front panel button; this test signal places a text message on line 21 to confirm proper operation.
This unit was designed to fit in a 1 rack unit space.
