The UDC-8625A Format Converter
A feature rich 3G / HD / SD SDI converter that supports all traditional formats including 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480i, and 576i. Audio and video synchronization is combined with a signal processor, offering full control of the 16 channels of audio, with gain, invert, shuffle and sample rate conversion. Video processing offers adjustment for luma / chroma gain plus black offset with metadata processing including AFD processing and insertion. Pillar bar / letter box (wings) insertion can be achieved with the external fill signal or internally from the logo inserter. ARC configurations can be saved and recalled via GPI or DashBoard. A/B inputs can be configured to V-fade or operate in an auto fail-safe mode selecting the secondary input on failure / absence of the primary input.

The UDC-8625A Keyer 
The UDC-8625A can be operated as a keyer using the external key / fill inputs to key overtop of the PGM input. The operation can be extended to allow for mixing of the background with V-fade transitions behind the keyer by using the second background input.

The UDC-8625A Logo Inserter 
The UDC-8625A offers internal 2Gb storage for logo insertion supporting static and animated playout with support for TGA, GIF, PNG, BMP and JPG file formats.

The UDC-8625A A/B Mixer 
For downstream signal mixing the UDC-8625A offers a full audio / video mixing engine that can be configured to perform Fade-Fade, Take-Fade, or Fade-Take transitions with selectable rate control.

Combined UDC, Keyer, Logo Inserter and A/B Frame Sync
