Sonifex Reveal New Video Redboxes At BVE 2011
11th February 2011
Sonifex will be showing a host of new products on stand H50 at BVE this year. Most notably, the new additions to the Redbox range of video embedders and de-embedders, the RB-VHDDD8 and the
Still in the familiar Redbox chassis and offering rackmounting as standard with a universal AC power supply, these new video Redboxes use latest technology components to offer embedding and de-embedding for analogue and digital audio signals into and out of all 3G, HD and SD-SDI video signals, respectively.
Managing Director, Marcus Brooke said: “We have recently expanded upon our Redbox range of products to incorporate a growing number of video units. At last years show we announced the arrival of our video suite of embedders and de-embedders, whereas this year, we are showing our Dolby® additions to the collection.”
The RB-VHDDD8 is a Dolby® E & Dolby Digital Decoder and De-Embedder. It de-embeds up to 10 channels of audio within any audio group of an SDI video signal and a further 2 which are sent to the Dolby® Decoder. The outputs from the Decoder or the De-embedder can then be re-embedded onto either of the two SDI outputs and also transmitted on a BNC or D-type situated on the rear panel.
The metadata output from the decoder is transmitted using RS-485 via the external 9-pin D-type on the rear panel and can also be embedded into the vertical blanking space onto either of the two SDI outputs.
The RB-VHEDD8 is a Dolby® E Encoder and Embedder. It encodes 8 channels of audio into two channels of an AES/EBU digital audio stream which is then embedded onto any of the available groups within each of the two video output paths. It is also transmitted on a BNC or D-type on the rear panel.
The audio inputs to the encoder can be selected to either come from the external audio inputs via the BNC or D-type connections on the rear panel or from the audio in the incoming SDI input. Similarly, the metadata input for the encoder can be selected to either come via the external 9-pin D-type on the rear panel or from metadata embedded into the vertical blanking area of the video input.
Both units are controlled locally through the front panel display but can be remote controlled via an ethernet connection using the Sonifex SCi software, through which metadata can also be viewed.
