AJA Ships HD DownconverterDevice outputs SD-SDI and analog component
The HD10MD converts HD-SDI video to standard definition SDI and analog component/composite video. It uses a 10-bit data path and multi-point interpolation to convert either 1080p24 or 1080p24sf to 59.94 Hz output video using 3:2 pulldown. The output can be formatted for either 4:3 or 16:9 standard-definition monitors. For 4:3 monitors, both letterbox and crop modes are provided.
The HD10MD accepts an HD-SDI input and downconverts it to SDI while simultaneously outputting a 10-bit analog signal. Analog formats can be YPbPr, NTSC/PAL/YC or RGB and are user-selectable with an external dip switch. It includes four outputs for supporting multiple pieces of equipment, as well as legacy equipment.
The HD10MD sells for $2,400 and comes with a five-year. For more information, visit http://www.aja.com.
