Aurora introduces new compact converters and distribution amplifiers

Aurora Video Systems has announced the launch of the first products in the company's new Diversity family of compact digital video converters and distribution amplifiers (DAs) for high-quality signal conversion and transfer between digital and analogue capture, editing, and playback devices.
"Diversity's compact, high-quality converters are competitively priced and designed to give editors greater versatility in implementing high-performance solutions, whether it be in a large edit house or in a home studio environment," said Aurora Video Systems CEO Darryl Hock. "Users can streamline their workflow by using the converters to link new and existing digital and analogue systems into an effective editing suite, gaining maximum performance with a minimum of cost and complexity."
The three products announced include a 10 bit SDI-to-YPrPb converter, a 10 bit YPrPb-to-SDI converter, and a 10 bit SDI DA, all of which are stand-alone, DC-powered cubes.
These lightweight stand-alone converters may be placed on a table or in the user's rack, or mounted to the back of decks and monitors.
The two converters feature high precision, 12 bit DACs and 12 bit ADCs capable of meeting both NTSC and PAL SMPTE 259M 4:2:2 standards.
The SDI to YPrPb converter includes an auxiliary reclocked SDI output for connecting downstream digital devices, and the YPrPb to SDI converter offers 16x oversampled inputs and includes two SDI outputs.
Aurora's new 10 bit SDI DA provides one SDI input and four equalized SDI outputs. The system's input automatically locks to any of four SMPTE 259M data rates (143, 177, 270, and 360 Mb/s).
All SDI inputs can automatically equalise up to 300 m of coaxial cable or up to 120 m of Cat 5 UTP cable.
