Atlona Technologies has added the new AT-HSDI-VGA SDI to PC/HD scaler with audio to its Atlona Industrial line.
Ideal for the integration of SDI sources into standard AV environments, the AT-HSDI-VGA converts SD, HD, and 3G SDI signals to component or VGA formats with resolutions up to 1080p or 1920×1200, respectively. In addition, the unit’s re-clocking technology allows SDI signals to be extended up to 1,000 feet with no signal degradation.
In commercial applications, installers often have to connect to a non-HD-SDI device; however, most converters will only convert the signal from HD-SDI to VGA/DI/HDMI. With the AT-HSDI-VGA, SD, HD, and 3G SDI signals can be converted to component or VGA video formats with resolutions up to 1080p for component, or 1920×1200 for VGA. Resolutions are easy to set through on-screen menus.
For larger applications, the unit’s built-in equalized ports allow SDI signals to be expanded up to 330 feet with 3G, 660 feet with HD, and 1,000 feet with SD. The AT-HSDI-VGA’s dual display capability enables an SDI display and a component or VGA display to run simultaneously with a built-in loop-out port. This feature is ideal for side-by-side comparisons and other applications. For a full AV experience, the unit’s built-in audio de-embedding allows digital (S/PDIF) or analog (2-channel) audio to be passed through to an amp.
The Atlona Industrial line is designed to satisfy the unique requirements of government, education, broadcast, healthcare, and other high-sensitivity applications by bridging the gap between AV and IT.
