The For.A 3G/HD/SD Dual Channel Multi Purpose Signal Processor is suitable for a variety of applications including master control, mobile production, post production services, live production, and more.

This processor supports 3G-SDI, HD/SD-SDI, and analog composite I/O signals. In addition to its functionality as a frame synchronizer, it also provides up/down/cross/aspect converter, full color corrector, and AVO (Automatic Video Optimizer) as standard features. It also supports optional features such as analog component I/O, Dolby E encoder, and Dolby E decoder.

Dual Channel Mode
The FA-9520 processor is provided with 2 modes, namely Dual Channel Mode and FA-9500 Compatible Mode. The FA-9500 Compatible Mode can be used for HD/SD simultaneous operation using a second converter.
3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SD-SDI/Analog Composite I/O
Three video inputs are standard (2 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs and 1 analog composite input). Adding the optional analog component input provides a 4th input. Any of the inputs can be independently assigned to the 2 internal independent frame synchronizers. In addition, each SDI input has an error detection function. When the signal is missing or an error is detected, this optional feature provides a clean switch for a seamless changeover to the other channel.

Both channels are equipped with emergency bypass. In case of a power outage, the original signal is passed through to the appropriate output in its original format.

Digital/Analog Audio I/O
The FA-9520 Processor supports a variety of audio signals, including 16 synchronous/asynchronous channels (During HD input/output only. In SD, only synchronous audio is supported, and at most there are 16 input channels and 12 output channels) of embedded audio, 8 channels of AES/EBU, and 4 channels of analog audio. This provides a total of 28 input and 28 output audio channels. Many types of signal processing are incorporated such as, embedding/de-embedding with video and A/D, D/A conversion. The unit provides a lot of flexibility for multi-channel audio content. Individual sampling rate converters are provided for each audio channel. Signal processing without any phase difference between channels is possible for delay adjustment, level adjustment, down-mixing, and remapping.
Up/Down/Cross/Aspect Converter
In addition to A/D and D/A conversion, an up/down/cross/aspect converter is standard equipment in the FA-9520 Processor. In addition to bi-directional conversion between HD and SD, the FA-9520 Processor also offers bi-directional conversion between 1080i format and 720p format (IP conversion). The aspect ratio conversion allows for specific control of horizontal and vertical sizing.
Powerful Frame Synchronizer Performance
The processor delivers high performance when processing video with poor quality signals. Synchronizer modes can be selected from Frame, Line, Input (The Input mode is supported only in FA-9500 Compatible Mode.), and AVDL mode. AVDL adjustment range is 5H in HD, 1H in SD.

In all modes, ancillary data can be passed through together with both H and V (If input/output formats differ, packets that can be passed through are subject to certain limitations).

Color Corrector
The real-time color correction function is suitable for correcting on set monitors, correcting white balance problems, and matching cameras. The unit provides intuitive control with 4 rotary encoders that light red, green, blue, and white to indicate the controlled function.
Main Functions
Supports 3 types of color correction modes (balance, differential and sepia),¬ gamma adjustment function with high, mid and low tone, white level and black level adjustment function, and various clip functions (Y white, C white, Y black).
Closed Caption Conversion (Subtitles) between HD and SD Videos
You can convert the closed captioning (subtitles) during up conversion (CEA-608 CEA-708).
Web GUI for Intuitive Operations and Remote Control
The Web server is installed in the main unit to enable operations and monitoring via a Web browser from an external PC. The block diagram-based, easy-to-understand GUI allows you to intuitively control video/audio routing and adjustment along with the signal flow.
Other Features (Standard Functions)
Supports Video/audio delay, 2D/3D comb filter for Y/C separator (composite), AFD (Active Format Description), and SNMP monitoring/control function (partially).
AVO (Automatic Video Optimizer)
The AVO feature can monitor and adjust luminance levels in real time. Parameters are user set to provide correction for changing lighting conditions. The AVO function can only be assigned to a single channel.
Logo Generator
This allows you to key logo images over input video. Data is maintained even when the unit is powered Off. The logo function can be used for branding purposes, or used as a side panel added to a 4:3 video in place of a logo. One Logo Generator each is provided for each of dual channels.
Options
The FA-9520 processor's wide range of options let you add the specific functions such as Dolby E encoder/decoder,¬ loudness control,¬ analog component I/O,¬ change over function (supported only in FA-9500 Compatible Mode),¬ digital audio expansion cable, and¬ redundant power supply unit.
