Component or Composite Analog to SDI Converter

The D10AD provides excellent quality 10-bit conversion of component or composite analog video to SDI. The D10AD accepts YPbPr (SMPTE, EBU-N10), Betacam, or RGB component inputs and NTSC/PAL or YC (S-Video) composite inputs. The D10AD features a 3 Line Adaptive Comb Filter for high quality decoding of composite sources. The comb filter can be switched to 2 line or notch modes for minimum delay requirements. NTSC/PAL configuration is automatic. Video format, AGC, and pedestal are all user configurable via dipswitches.
