Matching up and synchronizing disparate video and audio formats is a critical part of any broadcast, mobile or post production environment. AJA’s FS1-X is the next evolution in frame synchronization and conversion. Within its compact 1RU chassis, FS1-X integrates an amazing array of video and audio connectivity and processing. Featuring a flexible architecture, FS1-X simultaneously works with 3G-SDI 10-bit broadcast quality video and incorporates embedded audio, AES, MADI, and analog audio.
Utilizing AJA’s remarkable conversion algorithms, FS1-X supports up, down and cross-conversion between SD and HD signals for the highest quality output possible. Additionally, the factory installed motion adaptive Frame Rate Converter (FRC) option enables high quality conversions between different frame rate families for virtually unlimited international standards support.
The growth of 5.1 and 7.1 audio has increased the number of audio channels that must be managed in a production. The MADI standard provides a convenient way to transport huge numbers of audio channels along a single cable, simplifying the cabling demands for broadcasters, mobile trucks and production. FS1-X supports both fiber and coax 64-Channel MADI input and output. An internal 224 x 224 audio matrix allows full routing of MADI and all audio coming from SDI, fiber, AES and analog sources for an incredible amount of audio processing capability in a single box.
