Canopus ADVC-1000 SDI/DV Converter for the professional studio - 1189.00 xvat 


DV converter specialized for broadcast NLE

ADVC1000 is a professional, high-quality bidirectional SDI/DV video converter designed for use with broadcast studio equipment.

Three-year limited warranty

Featuring front-side controls and LCD display, analog video and unbalanced audio outputs for monitor preview, and a solid half 19-inch rack mount design, ADVC1000 is an ideal SDI in/out solution for any DV interface in a studio environment.

Perfect Signal Synchronization - Canopus "PerfectSync" (patent pending)
Canopus has realized perfect signal synchronization output with an external reference signal (house sync) for Windows* and Mac OS based DV-to-SDI conversion. ADVC1000 features original technology to control and synchronize the transfer rate of IEEE 1394 communication with an external reference signal. This prevents skipped and duplicate frames and produces perfect conversion of all frames during DV-to-SDI conversion.

* For NTSC video conversion using Windows 2000, PerfectSync operation cannot be guaranteed due to a limitation of the operating system

Key Benefits

> Canopus 's proprietary DV technologies provide the best picture
   quality preservation
> SDI and DV I/O - Digital audio I/O ( AES/EBU) Reference input
> Analog video and unbalanced audio output (for monitor preview)
> Quick configuration using front panel controls
> Front LCD panel for status and settings display
> 9-pin serial port (AV/C-RS422 command convert function)
> Solid half 19-inch rack mount design
> NTSC and PAL compatible
> Windows and Mac OS compatible

VTR Control by AV/C-RS422 Conversion

ADVC1000 converts DV device control signals to RS422, to control an external VTR. Such control makes it possible to take in data from professional VTRs such as Digital BetaCam from any standard DV editing software that features DV
device control.

Professional Video System Input
Reference input and LTC input/output can be utilized to create a professional video editing system with editors or switchers.
> Reference Input
> LTC input/output
> Reciprocal TC conversions (LTC, VITC, DV TC)

Four-channel Embedded Audio Support
SDI supports up to four channels of embedded audio. It transfers professional level video/audio signals and can connect to long distance transmission systems. ADVC1000 has AES/EBU terminals to support MA operation with a professional audio mixer.

Advanced Usability
ADVC1000 is quickly configurable. Front panel controls include a mode switch and menu selection buttons with an LCD display for conversion settings.

ADVC1000 can operate as a stand-alone device not requiring a computer while keeping any preprogrammed settings.
