Snell & Wilcox adds industry-leading multifunction decoding and HDTV conversion to IQ Modular range

Snell & Wilcox is putting its industry-leading technologies into a series of new IQ Modular products that raise the quality bar for video decoding and HDTV conversion in the broadcast infrastructure domain.
Providing a must-have capability for facilities that want to transition to digital and HDTV operations at a controlled and cost-effective pace, these new additions to the company’s IQ Modular portfolio bring unrivaled performance in a compact package.
Snell & Wilcox is well-known for its excellence in video decoding, and the introduction of the IQDEC series of modular decoder/synchronisers takes this technology to the next level. Offering higher quality, stability, and functionality than any other product in its class, the IQDEC range is the ultimate front-end processor for any type of input coming into a broadcast facility. Powerful, flexible, and robust, these modules offer features such as video decoding, frame synchronisation, and powerful noise reduction. For example, the new IQDEC04 decoder and synchroniser provides premium 12-bit Golden Gate decoding technology and powerful compression-friendly noise reduction to deliver maximum picture quality while minimizing MPEG bit usage. The IQDEC’s advanced 3D decoding algorithms, powered by Golden Gate technology, extract more information from analogue picture sources than other decoders, making IQDEC the ideal bridge from analogue to digital or from analogue direct to HD. A full-frame synchroniser with horizontal and vertical phasing controls allows the output to be timed to a facility’s master clock. Proc. amp controls and a powerful, built-in noise reducer provide a complete signal conditioning solution in a single-width module.
