The 9502-DCDA-3G provides 3G/HD-to-SD down-conversion with ARC and has versatility in providing up to four HD/SD-SDI processed outputs as well as up to four reclocked SDI input copies selectable from two SDI inputs. The space-saving design of the 9502-DCDA provides for high density, allowing two cards to be collocated in adjacent slots and served by a single, standard width “split” rear module. Up to 20 of the 9502-DCDA cards can be installed in a 20-slot frame.
The card can pass SD signals with re-aspect, if needed. AFD processing can detect an incoming AFD code and correspondingly set scaling to track with AFD. This processor also allows independent custom ARC to be applied for each incoming AFD code, and set the desired AFD code to be inserted on the output, even if there is no code detected on the input. Using a 10-bit video path, the 9502-DCDA can rate-convert 23.98 frame video to 59.94 fields, move progressive to interlace and is equipped with extensive user programmable reticule overlays.
Two discrete character burn strings can be inserted on output video, with each string inserted as static text and/or insert only upon LOS. Full proc control allows adjustment of white level, black level, color gain, and color phase. Factory presets enable a return to factory settings. The 9502 offers 3G down-conversion to 1080i, 720p, or SD-SDI. AES audio outputs can be de-embedded from selected embedded audio channels.
Preset save/load allows saving custom card settings while allowing one-button revert to factory settings. Layered presets allow invoking changes related only to a specific area of concern (audio routing, for example) while not changing any other processing settings or aspects. Full user DashBoard™ or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access over a standard Ethernet network.

Low power/high-density design allows up to 20 cards per frame; less than 18 Watts per card
Economical solution for 3G/HD downconversion to legacy SD monitoring systems. HD version further economizes for environments requiring only HD/SD support (field upgradeable to 3G with software license upload if later desired).
Full timecode and CEA 708 / CEA 608 conversion to SD VITC timecode and closed-captioning. Option +LTC allows bidirectional transfer between embedded video timecode formats and audio LTC.
Down-conversion scaling includes user-configurable ARC and AFD-controlled ARC
Auto-format detect/down-conversion of SMPTE 424M/292/259M formats
Full embedded audio processing with selectable downmix and AES audio de-embed. Dolby passthru on downconversions.
Remote control/monitoring via Dashboard™ software or OGCP-9000 remote control panels

3G Software Option Upgrade Option (+3G) – Upgrades 9502-DCDA-HD card to 9502-DCDA-3G functionality/specifications.
Color Correction Option (+COLOR) – Provides independent RGB channel controls for luma, black, and gamma. Ultra-fast response time. The color correction feature is perfectly suited for use with Cobalt OGCP-9000/CC Remote Control Panel.
Frame Sync Software Option (+FS) – Adds frame sync to 9502-DCDA-3G card. Provides full vertical and horizontal offset and frame delay controls. Glitch-free handling of embedded audio when a frame is dropped or duplicated.
Audio LTC I/O Option (+LTC) – Offers bidirectional transfer and conversion between video timecode formats and audio LTC. Audio LTC can be received or sent over various card audio channels.
Extended Frame Sync Delay Option (+DLY) – Increases frame buffer to provide adjustable audio/video delay buffer capacity to over 9 seconds for SD video, 1.5 seconds for HD video, or 0.8 seconds for 3G video. Hardware feature available only on new purchase. (Add-on to option +FS; option +FS required.)
