AES06SF: New SDI interface For HD

TC Electronic announces SDI8 interface for DB4 and DB8      07/10/06

TC Electronic has announced the upcoming release of the SDI8 Interface card supporting SDI embedding/de-embedding for its DB8 and DB4 digital television audio processors.
In a broadcast market flooded with standard definition SDI interfaces, TC Electronic kept the release of an SDI interface on hold until a more future proof HD solution adapted for the highest HD requirements was standardized and ready. The SDI8 card supports SD and HD signals from 525 SD to 1080i (143 to 1485 MHz). While de-embedding and embedding 8 channels of audio (24 bit), selectable from the four SDI groups in chunks of four audio channels, it passes the video content untouched.
Besides supporting all SD and HD formats the SDI8 handles linear audio as well as AAC, Dolby E and Dolby AC3 at a very low latency without the need for compensation delays. The design features two separate SDI inputs, and two parallel, separately buffered outputs. Processing may be inserted on any two of the four SDI groups (8 channels), and re-embedding may take place on any two groups.
Pricing and Availability:
The optional SDI8 Interface for DB4 and DB8 will be available Q4 2006 at €2,000 retail ex. VAT. More information:
