The 7760CCM-HD Closed Caption module is a CEA-608 to CEA-708 closed caption translator, decoder and analyzer that extends the signal monitoring capabilities of the Evertz® monitoring product line by focusing on closed captions and extended data services (XDS).

The 7760CCM-HD has the capability to translate CEA-608 closed captions to CEA-708 closed captions, providing a flexible and cost-effective solution for both caption domains. The module supports the ability to format closed caption data into SMPTE 333M or Grand Alliance format for RS-232 closed caption transfer.

The auto-detecting program input supports both high and standard definition video formats, and comes equipped with a bypass relay, which will maintain the program path in the event of a power failure.

The 7760CCM-HD provides both a CEA-608 and CEA-708 closed caption decoder. The 7760CCM-HD also provides a detailed and comprehensive status display to the current state of the closed caption data. This status display can inform operators quickly if an error was detected.

The 7760CCM-HD occupies one card slot and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity, the portable 3RU 350FR frame which has a 7 slot capacity, or a standalone enclosure which holds a single module.
