Provides HDR and Wide Color Gamut support. Offers exceptional conversion format delivery, including 12G, 4K(UHD), 1080p and HD/SD.
Each of the FA-9600 processor’s two HD/SD inputs includes a frame synchronizer. Because the signal processor features 12G-SDI terminals, optional software opens the door to 4K(UHD) production. Adding an optional expansion card provides four more channels of 3G-SDI input/output or six channels of 12G-SDI distributed output.*1
The FA-9600 is much more than a basic frame synchronizer. It simplies all types of video conversion. A newly developed color processing circuit supports the latest gamut and dynamic range specications, and an optional converter circuit is available for up/down/cross conversion. Offering a wide range of audio processing, core features of remapping and gain adjustment, the FA-9600 can be expanded with optional cards*1 that make it an ideal standalone solution at transmission centers, in mobile production trucks, production studios, news stations, and other nonlinear editing and playout production environments.
*1 For details, see the expansion cards in “Options” in the Datasheet.
Supports conversion to versatile formats
Advantages in mixed HDR/SDR environments
New color processing circuit provides strong support in HD/4K(UHD) production.
This is useful not only when converting to unied specications before input to a switcher or editing system, but also at output - before HDR and SDR simulcasts.
Supports and converts between the broad ITU-R BT.2020 gamut for 4K/8K and the conventional ITU-R BT.709 gamut in HD.
Compensates for differences among external devices using EOTF/OETF corresponding to various HDR or SDR curves.
EOTF/OETF log curves and gamut can be registered from a PC.
Also compatible with S-Log3, Canon Log2, Canon Log3 and other camera log curves.
Dynamic range conversion compatible with HLG, PQ, SDR, and other log curves.
Compatible with ITU-R BT.2100-compliant dynamic range conversion.
< Support SDR/HDR log curves >
- SDR BT.709 - PQ BT.2020 - PQ P3D65 - HLG BT.2100 - Canon Log 2 - Canon Log 3
- Sony S-log 3 S-Gumut3/S-Gumut3 Cine - Sony S-log 3 BT.2020
Using FA-96AHDR Advanced Function Software option, processor is conversion compatible with SR Live for HDR or OOTF Adjustment function. Also, conversion using 3D-LUT is possible by changing the mode.
SR Live for HDR represents the workow which can provide HDR production proposed by Sony.
3G/HD/SD-SDI 2 inputs and 2 outputs with distribution output by each output, HDMI 1 input and 1 output.
Dual channel of Frame Sync., Proc. Amp., Colorimetry Converter, Color Corrector, Frame Delay and Clip function.
Dual channel of 1D-LUT conversion and Log curve conversion (EOTF/OETF) for HDR.
Dual channel of embedded audio (16 channels, HDMI is up to 8 channels);
AES/EBU I/O selectable for 4 inputs/2 inputs and 2 outputs/4 outputs (4 channels of stereo,unbalanced);
audio multiplex and demultiplex function.
Gain control, SRC, Down mix, Re-map, Mute, and Audio delay functions.
Optional remote control unit connection.
Can be controlled via Ember+.
With the FA-964K option, use two internal paths for 4K and HD. Supports 12G-SDI and 6G-SDI I/Os.
With the FA-96UDC option, use up/down/cross/aspect conversion, interlace/progressive conversion,
2SI/SQD conversion, 3G-SDI Level A/B conversion.
Quad 3G-SDI I/O card or 12G-SDI distribution output card, or SFP/SFP+ modular card can be installed.
For HDR function, 3D-LUT conversion 1 and SR Live for HDR (OOTF) function max.2 can be added.
AES/EBU I/O card, analog audio I/O card, MADI interface card, or Dante interface card can be added.
Other optional features
Redundant power supply, GPI I/O, and LTC I/O can be added.
