A new processing card for the Axon Synapse provides more than just anything-to-anything conversion.
The Axon Synapse is a modular system designed for the broadcast industry that includes a full range of converters and processing modules. High density, intuitive operation and high-quality processing are its key features.
Axon recently introduced the UDR416 module for the Synapse. The UDR416 is a four channel 3Gb/s, HD, SD SDI reclocking distribution amplifier, and a 4K quad 3Gb/s link to single 12Gb/s link converter and back depending on the back panel.
The BPU01 back panel has four inputs for 4-wire 3Gb/s to 12Gb/s. It has 8, DIN1.0/2.3 outputs on 3Gb/s, and 1 BNC and fiber output on 12Gb/s. The BPU02 back panel has two inputs for 12Gb/s to 4-wire 3Gb/s, and 12 DIN1.0/2.3 serial video outputs.
Both cards support 12Gb/s, 3Gb/s, HD and SD SDI: SMPTE425-5/6, SMPTE424M, SMPTE292M, SMPTE259M. Both cards have four GPI outputs for input swapping and status monitoring. 12Gb/s fiber I/O modules are optional.
The UDR416 module is useful in OB vehicles as a high-end, dual-input frame synchronizer and anything to anything converter. It also provides high-end studio infrastructure and transmission standard up/down/cross conversion, and 4K UHD up and down conversion from and to any supported video standard in the same frequency.
The Axon Synapse offers more than a frame that holds different processing modules. They are unique intelligent systems that form the foundation of extremely flexible building blocks. These blocks range from functions like a distribution amplifier, A/D and D/A conversion, ASI/DVB video processing, audio for video, audio processing, delay and storage. Synapse processing cards can perform a massive array of functions in a single slot, previously only possible with multiple cascade cards.
