The modular-type UFM-80SDICS SDI Changeover Switcher from For.A can be mounted in a UFM frame for seamless automatic switching of 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals to increase duplex transmission reliability.

This SDI seamless switcher duplicates the uncompressed SDI signal over a fiber-optic line and monitors the SDI signals of 2 systems decoded after duplex transmission, and switches seamlessly to the other line when signal loss, video freeze, audio mute, or other errors are detected.

Downsizing can be achieved by equipping multiple modules to a single UFM frame. Up to 5 modules can be equipped to the UF-106B, and up to 9 modules to the UF-112. In addition, different module types can also be simultaneously equipped.

Video Error Monitoring Function
SDI CRC errors that occur in the transmission paths of 2 systems and screen-freeze due to codec are monitored, enabling automatic switching to the normal signal.
Audio Error Monitoring Function
Audio problems and muting errors are monitored, enabling automatic switching to the normal signal.
Delay Adjustment Function
The delay amount generated between the difference between the transmission paths and equipment of 2 systems can be corrected up to maximum 20 frames.
Frame Synchronizer (FS) Function
The built-in FS function can lock the output to an external REF signal even when 2 inputs are asynchronous.
Supports 8 Channel Audio
Four systems (8 channels) of embedded audio are supported, and PCM audio can be switched seamlessly by cross-fade processing.
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol)
Control and monitoring using SNMP is supported (sold separately)
SDI Signal Pass-Through Function
When the power is off, the pass-through function operates and the input signal is output to OUT1.
Supports 3G, SD, and HD
Various formats such as 3G (1080/50p, 59.94p, 60p), HD (1080/50i, 59.94i, 60i), and SD (525/60, 625/50) are supported. 1
The status of each signal input can be monitored and unit control settings can be made using the dedicated GUI. A log of error contents and switching events are saved together with time information in the computer as a CSV file.
