Anaheim, California (October 3, 2013) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the DSC 3G-HD A and the DSC HD-3G A scalers for 3G-SDI and HDMI. The DSC 3G-HD A converts 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI video signals to HDMI, while the DSC HD-3G A converts HDMI to 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI. Both products feature advanced Extron video signal processing with 1080i deinterlacing, Deep Color processing, aspect ratio control, and additional processing features for optimal format conversion and image quality. A wide range of selectable output rates is available, independent of the input video resolution or frame rate, to ensure compatibility with downstream equipment. For both products, audio from the analog stereo input or the digital video input may be embedded onto the video output. The DSC 3G-HD A and DSC HD-3G A are built for professional AV integration with many convenience features, including a user-friendly front panel interface, internal test patterns, memory presets, and control via RS-232, USB, or on-screen menus.

"When interfacing 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI signals with HDMI, simple format converters are not sufficient for addressing resolution or timing incompatibilities, such as when interfacing 480i with HDMI," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "The powerful scaling engine and video processing features built into both scalers eliminate these issues, ensuring consistent, reliable signal conversion with high image quality."

The DSC 3G-HD A and DSC HD-3G A offer several features that enhance and simplify AV system integration. Both scalers feature input equalization which conditions incoming 3G-SDI or HDMI signals to compensate for signal loss over long input cables. The DSC 3G-HD A includes an SDI input loop-through with reclocking to eliminate high frequency jitter. The DSC HD-3G A features a genlock input with loop-through and two simultaneous 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI outputs.

Enhanced audio capabilities for both products include audio embedding, input gain and attenuation controls, and input audio muting. For the DSC 3G-HD A, analog stereo audio or up to four pairs of AES audio channels from the SDI input can be embedded onto the HDMI output. With the DSC HD-3G A, analog stereo audio or HDMI multi-channel PCM audio can be embedded onto the SDI outputs.
