Anaheim, California (April 13, 2010) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the DVC 501 SD, which converts SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI serial digital video signals to DVI-D and analog RGB or component video formats. It extracts embedded AES3 audio, automatically equalizes incoming SDI signals to optimize transmission over long cables, and includes RS-232 serial control. The DVC 501 SD is ideal for applications including television production, medical imaging, military simulation, houses of worship, and live events that require interfacing SDI signals from broadcast-type sources to professional / consumer-level displays and signal distribution systems that only accept DVI or analog signals.

"The DVC 501 SD solves a challenge integrators often face when deploying broadcast-grade, SDI-equipped source devices: interfacing them with displays that only have DVI or analog video inputs," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "With this product, they can easily bring cameras, medical imaging devices, and other sources with SDI outputs into any AV system."

The DVC 501 SD is compliant with SMPTE 259M, 292M, 424M, and ITU digital video standards. It accepts data rates from NTSC and PAL to HDTV 1080p/60 and 2048x1080. An input loop-through delivers reshaped and restored multi-rate SDI signals for re-transmission over long cables. The RGB output can be set for RGBHV, RGBS, and RGsB. Bi-level or tri-level sync can be selected when the unit is set for component video output.
