The VC-1-HS converts, extends and embeds audio from HDMI to SDI. This converter is especially complimentary to the Roland V-1600HD and V-800HD multi-format video mixers when you want to use SDI signals for camera inputs on the mixer. These video converter series provides uncompromising picture quality by maintaining the video characteristics of the original signal with rich-blacks and super-whites. There are no interlacing artifacts or other conversion or signal errors sometimes found with other video converters. The VC-1 series also features an on-board re-clocker to compensate for attenuation of SDI signals carried over long distances. The VC-1 series also supports both level A and B 3G-SDI, letting you connect a variety of higher quality SDI sources.
