The Link Electronics PFS-875 Video Frame Sync / Signal Converter is a video frame synchronizer and signal converter. This device has multiple conversion capabilities outputting analog and SDI digital video signals with digital and analog audio processing. It offers aspect ratio functions and Genlock capabilities.

This frame synchronizer specializes in SDI signal processing for the user's upgrade to digital.
A looping genlock offers the user the ability to reference to studio timing.
Front panel adjustments offer full proc-amp control.
Universal Device
This unit offers universal conversion, aspect ratio conversion, frame synchronization, audio conversion, closed caption and other embedded support with user manual adjustments.
A front panel Vacuum Fluorescent Display, VFD, allows convenient selection between multiple input signals.
This device fits into existing studio rack spaces without extraneous equipment.
Embedded Audio
The PFS-875 passes four channels of embedded stereo AES audio. AES delay adjustments will allow for matching output audio to video.
