Ross Video Picks Semtech For UHD Switcher

Semtech Corporation (SMTC) and Ross Video, have announced Semtech’s high-performance UHD-SDI solutions are integrated with Ross’s video switching expertise to deliver a next-generation UHD-SDI switcher platform, the Carbonite Black Plus 12G Switcher.

Based on Ross Video's Carbonite mid-size production switcher, the Carbonite Black Plus 12G platform brings true UHD production into the mainstream. This version will accept both quad-link and single-link 12G inputs to provide connection flexibility for new UHD formats. The Carbonite Black Plus 12G features MiniM/Es and MultiScreen processing, and can be switched between HD and UHD operation.

GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox & GS12141 UHD-SDI Retiming Cable Equalizer
Semtech's GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox has the configurability to perform both multiplexing and de-multiplexing between different UHD-SDI single- and multi-link interfaces. The device supports emerging 12Gbps and 6Gbps UHD-SDI interfaces as well as existing 3G-SDI and HD-SDI. The GS12070 allows the seamless integration of end-products using 12Gbps UHD-SDI for 4K UHDTV video applications into the pre-installed 3G-SDI based broadcast infrastructure. Single-link 12Gbps UHD-SDI to Quad-link 3G-SDI conversion, in both directions, is just one of the many features of the GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox.

Semtech’s GS12141 UHD-SDI retiming cable equalizer and GS12181 UHD-SDI retiming cable driver feature low power consumption and provide industry-leading signal integrity performance at all SDI rates. Outstanding jitter cleaning, cable reach and unique eye-shaping enable reliable migration to 12G UHD-SDI for UHDTV interconnects. UHD-SDI is ideal for UHDTV infrastructures, including routers, cameras, monitors, switchers and more.
