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.
The FA-9600 is much more than a basic frame synchronizer. It simplifies all types of video conversion. A newly developed color processing circuit supports the latest gamut and dynamic range specifications, 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.
HDR and Wide Color Gamut support
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.
Dynamic range conversion compatible with HLG, PQ, SDR, and other log curves. Also compatible with S-Log3, Canon Log2, and other camera log curves.
Using FA-96AHDR Advanced Function Software option, processor is compatible with ITU-R BT.2100-compliant dynamic range conversion.
Dual channel frame synchronization, via two SDI inputs and four outputs. Able to switch between two modes to suit the application.
- Simultaneous 4K/HD mode: Use two internal paths for 4K and HD. Single-channel up/down*2 conversion
- Dual HD mode: Use two internal HD paths. Dual-channel up/down*2 conversion
Extensive professional video format support: 12G*3/6G*3conversion
Connectivity with a broad range of equipment; Also equipped with HDMI ports
The FA-9600 comes standard with a dedicated application that runs on Windows, providing full access to many functions, and allows a wide variety of settings. Web server functionality is also implemented in the main unit, allowing adjustments*5 to be made to various parameters from mobile and tablet devices.
New color processing circuit provides strong support in HD/4K UHD production. Useful not only at input, when converting to unified specifications before input to a switcher or editing system, but also at output - for example, before HDR and SDR simulcasts.
Offers conversion between SD/HD and 4K UHD*3 and between SD and HD. Also enables cross-conversion between 1080i and 720p. (For these conversions, only Line1-side conversions effective.)
*2: FA-96UDC is required.
*3: When FA-964K is installed. Conversions that include 4K UHD are effective only Line 1-side. When from 12G-SDI to quad link 3G-SDI output and downconverted HD output are used concurrently, quad link 3G-SDI needs to be set to 2SI (2-Sample Interleave) Level-A format.
*4: Audio processing unavailable with HDMI connection.
*5: This feature is available for a limited number of function and parameters.
