Description

Details

The Blackmagic Design OpenGear Converter - UpDownCross is a SDI signal converter/distributor that's fully compatible with the OpenGear standard, for installation in a rack-mounted chassis. (Blackmagic offers several OpenGear frame configurations – sold separately.) This model performs high-quality signal conversion, whether SD to HD, HD to SD, or one HD format to another – 1080i/p to 720 or vice versa. NTSC & PAL conversion (input and/or output of either) is also supported.

The UpDownCross converter features an auto-switching 3G/HD/SD-SDI input and seven configurable 3G/HD/SD-SDI outputs for flexible, broadcast-quality signal conversion & distribution. There's also a reference input (blackburst & TriSync) and SDI loop output. The converter adapts SDI audio delay to accommodate the video processing in order to keep everything in sync, and it applies an equalizer, re-clocker, and 10-bit de-serializer to the SDI input signal.

You can update and/or reconfigure the OpenGear Converter - UpDownCross in three different ways: via the USB 2.0 connection, over a network via Java-based DashBoard software, or by setting its mini switches.

Open Architecture Converter
The OpenGear Converter - UpDownCross is fully compatible with the OpenGear standard. OpenGear is an open standard for rack-mount converters and processing for television broadcasters. Blackmagic OpenGear Converters are compatible with 20-card models of the 2 RU (rack unit) OpenGear frames. Many manufacturers develop OpenGear cards and frames that can be mixed and matched. OpenGear cards are hot-swappable and can be controlled by java-based DashBoard network control and monitoring software on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

High Quality, Low Jitter
This OpenGear Converter is built to the highest quality standards with low SDI jitter. You get the longest SDI cable lengths a true broadcast-quality solution

3 Gb/s SDI Technology
3 Gb/s SDI technology is built into Blackmagic OpenGear Converters, and future standards can be uploaded via the USB port. 3G-SDI is also fully compatible with all your SD and HD equipment

Auto-Switching Inputs: HD & SD
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters instantly switch between all SD and HD video formats the instant the video input changes. A huge range of standards are supported, and new formats can be added via USB

Easy to Use
Blackmagic OpenGear Converters can be set up via mini switches, via a network using DashBoard software, or via USB using Blackmagic Design's Converter Utility. That's three completely different ways to configure, so in a critical live situation, you're never stuck
