Ordering information

The UDC-8625A-A Format Converter
A feature rich 3G / HD / SD 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-A Audio Processor
The UDC-8625A-A offers everything the UDC-8625A does with the addition of discrete audio processing. The 8 AES I/O can be used as 8 AES inputs, 8 AES outputs, or 4 AES in / 4 AES out and offer embedding, deembedding and full discrete audio processing functions.

The UDC-8625A-A Keyer
The UDC-8625A-A can be operated as a keyer using the external Key / Fill inputs to key over 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-A Logo Inserter
The UDC-8625A-A offers internal 2Gb storage for logo insertion that supports static and animated playout with support for TGA, GIF, PNG, BMP, and JPG file formats.

The UDC-8625A-A A/B Mixer
For downstream signal mixing the UDC-8625A-A 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.

Any combination, as required!

The UDC-8625A-A offers complete remote control and monitoring via the DashBoard Control System. Automation support is offered via RS-422 serial control and / or GPI combined with direct Ethernet connectivity for media transfer.
