The AV Toolbox C2-2375A Universal Scaler PLUS is a 3G-SDI converter based on TV One’s CORIO 2 technology and provides enhanced quality bi-directional conversion between a variety of analog and digital video formats. Input and outputs can be SD / HD / 3G-SDI, DVI, composite video, YC, YUV, YPbPr, or RGB. The signal parameters of the incoming video are adjustable. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off. Ten user-defined presets are also available to customize settings for various applications.
The high resolution RGB / YPbPr output is selectable as virtually any PC or HDTV resolution. The AutoSet feature makes setup easy by automatically sizing and positioning the computer image to fit exactly on the video screen. NTSC, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, SECAM standards are supported. The 2nd DVI and analog outputs can be set to be a different video format and resolution.
All the functions can be controlled via the front panel push buttons, or RS-232 / 422 / 485, or IP connections. The Windows Control Panel software (downloadable from website) is provided and most third-party control systems interface directly with the product. A front panel LCD makes setup easy. The unit is housed in a standard 1U rack mount case and features an optional, redundant internal PSU and power inlet.
Variable Zoom to 10x allows you to enlarge an image from any part of the computer screen to fill the entire video screen, and position controls allow movement to any area desired. Variable Shrink till 10% allows fitting the image onto most displays. The advanced Digital Flicker Elimination circuitry and high sampling rate ensure crisp, clear images, while full bandwidth chroma sampling ensures reproduced, high resolution colors.
Temporal interpolation greatly improves frame rate conversion by analyzing and merging successive frames. Pixel Level Motion Adaptive Diagonal Interpolation and Noise Reduction ensures enhanced quality de-interlacing of PAL, NTSC, and 1080i signals. 3:2 Pull-down ensures proper 24 fps film extraction from NTSC and 1080i sources.
The Key Mode feature allows computer graphics to be keyed over an external composite, YC, or SDI signal. The keyed image may be faded in and out. Because of the 4:4:4 sampling format, precise keying at the pixel level can be achieved.
The Mix Mode permits Seamless Cut, Fade, or Wipe transitions between input sources. This feature allows either of the computer HD15 / DVI inputs to be inset in a window over any of the CV / YC / SDI video inputs or vice versa. The PIP window may be placed anywhere on the screen. The Genlock feature is SD and HD compatible and ensures precise synchronization of the incoming signals by providing a wide Subcarrier Lock Range with Subcarrier Phase Adjust.
