Kramer Introduces Multicoder Universal Transcoder(August 08, 2001)
The Kramer FC-4045 Multicoder is a multi-standard converter designed to encode and/or decode a video signal and simultaneously output it in the most commonly used video formats. The unit accepts a composite, s-Video (Y/C), component video or SDI video input, and then encodes it to all those formats simultaneously. The component input may be RGsB, RGBS or Y/R-Y/B-Y, and the user may select the format of the component output. The FC-4045 is also a standards converter. The FC-4045 automatically recognizes the incoming video standard, and the user selects the output standard.
Standard conversion between PAL and SECAM is possible, as is conversion between NTSC3.58 and NTSC4.43. The color subcarrier of the composite and Y/C outputs may be genlocked to an external video source, or generated by the unit's highly accurate oscillators. The machine offers user-friendly adjustment of the video parameters, and the front-panel may be locked to prevent tampering with the adjustments and other settings. The unit can be controlled via RS-232, and its current settings are stored in non-volatile memory upon power down, and recalled when the machine is turned on again.
