Addressing the needs of content producers and distributors to supply UHD, 3G and HD content in parallel, the 7814UDX-4K, 7814UC-4K, 7814HDC-4K and 7814XC-4K are a series of broadcast quality up/down/cross converters that convert between common HD SMPTE ST 292M, 3G SMPTE ST 424M and UHD signal formats including SMPTE ST 2082. Variants are also available to support up conversion, down conversion and cross conversion between square division and 2sI UHD signal formats.
The 7814UDX/UC/XC/HDC-4K series supports broadcast quality video conversion. Advanced motion adaptive spatial-temporal (3D) noise reduction and next generation de-interlacing techniques ensure superior resolution and artifact reduction, generating the highest quality video suitable for broadcast and other professional media applications. Optionally available video processing features (+VPROC option) include full broadcast quality color correction for SDR video signals and detail enhancement processors along with RGB–based color legalization.
The 7814UDX–4K series products are also HDR capable (with +VPROC and +HDR options), have HDR color correction and can up/down/cross convert SDR and a range of HDR formats, including SMPTE ST 2084 (PQ), HLG and S-Log3. It also performs all colour space conversion including BT.709, BT.2020 and S.Gamut3. Rather than using fixed LUTs, the Evertz HDR conversion uses high-precision mathematical modelling to allow for very low-latency, high accuracy transforms while allowing on-the-fly changes to colour correction or HDR transfer function parameters.
The 7814UDX/UC/XC/HDC-4K series transparently supports 16x channels of embedded audio with audio delay automatically matching video delay. Optional audio processing features (+APROC option) include 5.1 to stereo down-mixing (LoRo or LtRt), audio channel shuffling, gain, inversion and mono-mixing. With "-AES8" variants, 8x discrete AES inputs and 8x discrete AES outputs are provided, allowing for discrete AES input and output. Full audio routing capability allows outgoing embedded and discrete AES audio (-AES8 versions) to be sourced from any combination of embedded audio, discrete AES inputs (-AES8 versions) or processed audio.
These modules are SNMP capable for remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities using VistaLINK® PRO, CP-2116E or CP-2232E Control Panels. VistaLINK® is available when modules are used with the 3RU 7800FR series or 1RU 7801 frames and 7800/7801FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller module is installed. Each card occupies two slots in the frame.
The -12G option adds support for SMPTE ST 2082 and enables up to 2x 12G SFP's (ordered separately) to be added to allow transport over a single coax or Fiber. The -12G-HDBNC-R option includes an HDBNC module that supports 12G-SDI signals.
