Conversion of video and audio signals from HDMI input to SDI output

Roland's video converters address the demand for high-quality, lossless video and audio converters for live/post production as well as installed systems.

The VC-1 Video Converter series provides uncompromising picture quality by maintaining the video characteristics of the original signal with rich-blacks and super-whites.  There are no interlacing artifacts or other conversion or signal errors sometimes found with other video converters.  The VC-1 series also features an on-board re-clocker to compensate for attenuation of SDI signals carried over long distances.  The VC-1 series also supports both level A and B 3G-SDI, letting you connect a variety of higher quality SDI sources.

The VC-1 series is HDCP compliant allowing you to convert or pass-through HDCP signals with the exception of any SDI output.  The VC-1-DL additionally enables the HDCP signal to be delayed.  Selectable audio embedding and de-embedding lets you route different audio sources to or from video devices.  Digital AES/EBU input and output signals are supporting ensuring high-quality audio signals can be maintained through the signal flow.
