  • 1x HDMI standard type A connector
    • HD/SD
    • Color space, YCbCr or RGB
    • Bit depth, 8 or 10
    • RGB Range, SMPTE or Full Range

Video Processing

  • Frame rate conversion/film cadence removal/insertion (3:2)
  • Freeze (on input signal loss) to black or last good frame
  • AFD input detection, down-convert control
  • Nominal video delay HD/SD, 1 frame


  • Hardware 10-bit
  • 4×3 Pillar: results in a 4×3 image at center screen with black sidebars
  • 14×9 Pillar: results in a 4×3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14×9 image with black side bars
  • Full Screen: results in a 4×3 image stretched horizontally to fill in a 16×9 screen
  • Letterbox to Full: results in image zoomed to fill fullscreen
  • Wide Zoom: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16×9 screen; this setting will introduce a small aspect ratio change


  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size
  • Anamorphic: HD image is converted to full-screen SD with a 16×9 aspect ratio
  • 14×9: image is reduced slightly with aspect ratio preserved, black is added top and bottom, and the left and right sides are cropped
  • Auto AFD: automatically selects the best down-convert mode based on the input video’s Active Format Description (AFD) code
  • Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved


  • Hardware 10-bit
  • 1080i to 720p
  • 720p to 1080i
  • 720p to 1080PsF

Aspect Ratio Converstion for
SD to SD

  • Letterbox: transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
  • H Crop: produces a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
  • SD Pillarbox: produces an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
  • V Crop: transforms SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image
  • 14×9: anamorphic to 14×9 conversion

Audio Input Digital

  • 48 kHz sample rate
  • 1x SDI embedded input
    • 16-channels, 24-bit (20-bit SD), SMPTE-272/299

Audio Output Digital
