Axon To Unveil Synapse Additions At IBC

News Image
Axon Digital Design has announced that it will unveil the latest enhancements to Synapse at IBC2016.

Synapse 4K up and down converters and production 'tool boxes' support Vanc and Hanc data such as timecode and embedded audio, as well as Dolby E encoding and decoding.

In recent months, System Integrators, Rental Facilities companies and Outside Broadcasters have called for technology to enable them to easily process 4K signals without having to go through multiple paths using traditional 3G routing switchers.

Their main request was for a single coax 12Gb/s SDI connection for inputs and outputs on any video equipment capable of working in 4K/UHDTV. 

Axon has responded by introducing new BPU01 and BPU02 I/O panels, which enable conversion to and from 12Gb/s and 6Gb/s. They are suited for applications in which 4K 4-wire to 12Gb/s and vice versa need to be converted, as new panels make it possible to utilise 12Gb/s 4K/UHDTV monitors to check and troubleshoot source signals before they are incorporated into the IP stream.

The panels also meet the 12 Gb/s standards of Axon's US partner Utah Scientific, allowing easy connection to Utah's new UHD-12G 4K digital routing switcher, that can receive, route, and distribute SDI signals up to 12G and 60 frames per second.

Also new to the Synapse range is the GNS600, a 3G, HD and SD SDI SCTE104 inserter with SDI inputs and outputs. With this module, SCTE104 information present in the SDI signal can be transcoded and inserted into the main 3G, HD or SD SDI signal. Data from both the Ethernet and SDI domain can be inserted into lines in the SDI domain or into a user defined cue on a preset base.

Axon will also introduce the TSX20 and TSX30 integrity checkers with configurable auto output switches to the range. The TSX30 is a triple channel version while the TSX20 is a dual input version. In both products, the hardware can be fitted with two SFP modules that can be used as fiber in and/or outputs.

These products are designed for a range of applications including generic ASI/DVB integrity monitoring and backup switching; autonomous automatic A/B switching, redundancy switching at play out centers, head-ends and encoding/multiplexing systems and input monitoring and switching at DVB-T and DVB-T2 Transmitter sites.
