The Roland VC-1-HS HDMI to SDI Video Converter allows HDMI video sources to be incorporated into an SDI workflow, and can also serve and an audio embedder and de-embedder. The internal processing has been designed to faithfully preserve the incoming HDMI signal and frame rate without introducing interlacing artifacts, signal errors, or reducing the dynamic range of the image.
Uncompromising commitment to picture quality
The VC-1 series faithfully converts the original source with no change in color or brightness. It supports super-blacks and super-whites, and converts video from cameras and other source devices with all the originality intact.
The VC-1 series features an on-board reclocker to compensate for attenuation of SDI signals carried over long distances. This makes it possible to receive camera-relay video while maintaining a high image quality.
Faithful reproduction of video characteristics.
The VC-1 series reproduces the video characteristics of the original source with no interlace artifacts, pixel shifting, or other conversion problems or signal errors. Jitter and return loss are at exceptional levels as well.
Support for 1080p 3G-SDI
Video signals beyond 1080i can be input and output. The VC-1 series supports both level A and level B 3G-SDI, letting you connect a wide variety of 3G-SDI equipment. 1080i, 720p, and SD signals are accommodated automatically on connection.
High quality and rugged construction for the rigors of front-line use
The exterior plating is aluminum at 2 millimeters thick. The connectors laid out inside the exterior plates are fastened to the chassis with nuts and bolts. This makes for a heavy-duty specification that can keep the connectors from coming loose even with frequent cable changes, as well as withstanding impact and drops. Every connector has an LED input indicator enabling you to confirm the status of signal transmission at a glance. The series is built for uncompromising reliability that includes accurate operation even over long periods of continuous use thanks to a design featuring exceptional heat-radiating efficiency.
Support for HDCP HDMI signals
The VC-1 series is compliant with HDCP. For example, the VC-1-DL can take HDCP-applied HDMI input signals, apply frame synchronization or delay, and produce HDCP-applied HDMI output. This allows the VC-1 series to be used in any HDCP-based system with no worries. o SDI frame synchronization or This allows the VC-1 series worries.
Support for workflow combining audio and video
Audio embedding and de-embedding features are provided ( channel-selectable) in the VC-1 Series. The audio embedding feature lets you place audio signals from a different source into the video output. For example, when converting an SDI signal to HDMI, you can use the audio embedding feature to output high-quality audio from any of the SDI audio channels. Digital ( AES/EBU) input and output are also supported, letting you exchange sound between professional audio equipment with no degradaton in signal. Analog input and output is supported as well making it possible to both monitor and input audio to/from a wide variety of equipment such as an audio console.
Easy configuration with DIP switches or dedicated PC/Mac software app
DIP switches make it simple to accommodate on-site requirements. Change the conversion direction or other settings by simply sliding a DIP switch on the side of the unit. Delay Dials ( VC-1-DL only) set the amount of delay for video and audio. Set the amount of delay independently for video and audio in a range of 0 to 9 fields ( 0 to 4.5 frames). Connection to a computer via USB cable unlocks even greater versatility with advanced settings including a memory location to lock in a favorite configuration. Control and configure multiple VC-1 units at the same time using a USB hub.
