The Flashlink ARC-SD-DMUX converts the aspect ratio of a SD-SDI signal. The module instantaneously changes the scaling during the vertical blanking period. The module addresses the need to convert between standard 4:3 and widescreen 16:9 formats employed by different digital TV standards. Flexible aspect ratio control is available for either 4:3 or 16:9. The ARC-SD-DMUX has applications in both contribution and distribution networks.
The ARC-SD-DMUX’ small form factor makes the ARC-SD-DMUX ideal for use with SD cameras in an Flashlink single-card N-BOX housing. An analog monitor output is also available for viewing the converted video shots. This makes the card a powerful tool for small-scale productions.
