The 9950-EMDE-ANC 3G/HD/SD-SDI Ancillary Data Embedder/De-Embedderoffers full VANC/HANC ancillary data de-embedding and embedding for 3G/HD/SD-SDI streams. The easy to use user interface allows direct access to DID and SDID locations to extract or insert user data such as camera PTZ, SCTE 104, closed-captioning read/insert, GPI/GPO via ANC, or other specialized user payloads.

Data insertion and extraction is via serial or IP interfaces. Easy to use DashBoard control provides for easy setup and configuration. The openGear® card-based form-factor and high-density design allows up to ten 9950-EMDE-ANC cards to be fitted to a 20-slot frame. The standard rear I/O module offers SDI I/O and data interface connections, as well as a relay-protected SDI copy output. Full user DashBoard™ or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Etherenet network.


  • Full insertion/extraction access to DID/SDID ancillary data such as camera PTZ, SCTE 104, closed captioning, GPI/GPO via ANC, and other specialized user payloads. HANC/VANC data interchange between SDI and GPIO, serial, and IP/Ethernet interfaces.

  • Full user VANC/HANC access

  • SMPTE 337 embed/de-embed allows serial user data to be embedded and de-embedded over unused embedded audio pairs

  • Low latency pass-thru for all 3G/HD/SD-SDI payloads

  • Latching relay protect SDI output provides input SDI bypass backup even in the event of power failure

  • openGear® card-based form factor provides easy, compact, and economical integration

  • DashBoard™ remote control status monitoring and setup/control

  • Five year warranty
