Extron Introduces 3G-SDI to 3G-SDI Scaler with Audio Embedding and De-Embedding

Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the DSC 3G-3G A, a high performance 3G-SDI scaler that converts between 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI resolutions and frame rates. It accepts, scales, and outputs SMPTE video resolutions from 480i and 576i up to 1080p/60 and 2K. The DSC 3G-3G A features advanced Extron video signal processing with 1080i deinterlacing and Deep Color processing for optimal image quality. The DSC 3G-3G A also provides flexible audio capability with analog audio embedding, de-embedding, and level adjustments. Dual SDI outputs, genlock, and an input loop-through facilitate integration in demanding professional environments, while the compact enclosure simplifies installation. The DSC 3G-3G A is ideal for applications with professional video systems, including video editing and production, rental and staging, medical imaging, and large-scale presentations.

“Multi-rate SDI signals are ideal for transmitting high definition video in AV systems with SDI-equipped devices, but converting between resolutions and frame rates while delivering optimal video quality can be a challenge,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “The DSC 3G-3G A includes a powerful scaling engine and video processing capabilities that ensure consistent, reliable 3G-SDI cross conversion with great picture quality, plus essential audio integration features, in a compact enclosure that saves valuable rack space.”

The DSC 3G-3G A offers several features that enhance and simplify AV system integration, including two simultaneous 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI outputs so that two displays can be driven simultaneously. The scaler also features input equalization which conditions incoming 3G-SDI signals to compensate for signal loss over long input cables. Reclocking on the SDI input loop-through eliminates high frequency jitter. Additionally, the DSC 3G-3G A offers a range of audio capabilities including SDI audio management, input gain and attenuation controls, input audio muting, and output volume control. A convenient analog two channel audio input and output are provided for embedding audio onto the SDI output, or sending de-embedded content to a sound system or other audio destination. The output can be set for stereo or dual mono.
