Product ManualManual

The 2430DAC-HD is a professional quality digital to analog converter for HD. The 2430DAC-HD supports all signal standards specified in SMPTE ST 240, SMPTE ST 274 and SMPTE ST 296.

DIP switch control allows the user to select between YPrPb, RGB or VGA style analog outputs with a variety of sync output options. User controlled 4:3 alignment markers also allow for convenient framing of the video signal. With the optionally supplied VGA to BNC breakout cable the 2430DAC-HD can easily interface to either standard broadcast monitors or VGA computer monitors.


  • Support for all SMPTE ST 240, ST 274 and ST 296 video formats
  • 4:3 alignment markers
  • Full 10 Bit Broadcast quality
  • 4:4:4 interpolated component output
  • DIP switch selectable YPrPb, RGB or VGA outputs with bi-level or tri-level sync
  • 15 pin VGA connector plates for use with VGA computer monitors
  • Front panel LEDs indicate video presence, module faults
