All-Round Frame Synchronizer

The FA-1010 is a frame synchronizer equipped with the various functions you need for video production and that enables multi-channel routing (10 video inputs and 10 video outputs).
It supports 3G-SDI and HD/SD-SDI input/output as standard and naturally includes all the typical features of a frame synchronizer as well as a color corrector (standard) enabling the conversion of a variety of video signals. For audio signal processing, it is highly versatile with delay adjustment and remapping functions plus a sampling rate converter. By combining these varied options, a single unit can provide the optimal functionality for all video production scenes, including transmission, outside broadcasting, news reporting, production, editing and distribution.

Features

10 3G/HD/SD-SDI Inputs/Outputs

10 SDI inputs have been included in the standard configuration. For SDI input, signals are synchronized independently in the FA-1010, so during switchover there is no shock even if asynchronous signals are input; that means a clean switch in both video and audio. By combining an error detection function with the clean switch function, you can achieve high-grade changeover. An I/O bypass function has also been provided in case power is cut or there is an emergency.

Digital Audio I/O

For embedded audio, there are 16 channels per 3G/HD-SDI synchronous/asynchronous input, and there are 12 channels per synchronous input in SD-SDI. That means support for up to 160 channels with all 10 inputs. Many types of signal processing are possible, including SDI embedding and de-embedding, and if an optional expansion card is installed, A/D and D/A conversions are also possible, thus flexibly supporting even multi-channel audio content. Additionally, individual sampling rate converters are provided. Signal processing without any phase gap between channels is possible for such processes as delay adjustment, level adjustment, down-mixing and remapping. Also, users needn’t worry about ancillary data being erased such as subtitles and time code due to signal processing.

Color Corrector

In addition to the Proc. Amp. function, the FA-1010 incorporates a color correction function. This enables you to perform color corrections with 3 color correction modes (refer to diagram at right) and also reproduce the original colors in the selected color space using the gamma adjustment function, clip function (refer to diagram at right) and various level adjustment functions.

Three types of color correction modes

  • Balance mode: For color correction in RGB signals
  • Differential mode: For color correction without affecting the white balance
  • Sepia mode: For monotone color schemes

Clip functions

RGB clip:
This uses white clip and black clip functions to correct color information in video that is too bright or dark.


Composite clip:
This automatically adjusts color information in HD video to suit SD signal ranges while preserving the original appearance. By determining differences between color information in HD video and that available with SD video, color inconsistency in simulcasts can be instantly corrected.

Powerful Frame Synchronizer Function

FOR-A's frame synchronizers have always exhibited superior performance when processing video with poor quality signals. Synchronizer modes that can be selected among from Frame, Line, and AVDL. Adjustment range in AVDL mode is 5H in HD and 1H in SD. Moreover, in every mode both H and V* ancillary data can be passed through.
*If input/output formats differ, there are limitations on the packets that can be passed through.

GUI Control Function

An in-built Web server combined with the GUI exclusively for PC (see the figure below) means users can change settings of various functions of the FA-1010 from a PC over a network. Mobile and tablet terminals can also be used through a wireless access point.

Other Features (Standard)

  • Video/audio delay
  • Monitoring and control of HV from a Web browser
  • SNMP monitoring and control (partial)
