Incredible frame rate conversion
Matching up and synchronizing disparate video and audio formats is a critical part of any broadcast, mobile or post-production environment. With the factory-installed motion adaptive Frame Rate Converter (FRC) option, FS1-X creates incredible, high-quality conversions between different frame rate families for virtually unlimited international standards support.

Massive audio flexibility
The growth of 5.1 and 7.1 audio has increased the number of audio channels that must be managed in a production as well as needing to create stereo mixdowns from 5.1 and 7.1 sources. 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 56- and 64-channel MADI input and output. An internal 224x224 audio matrix allows full routing of MADI, mixdowns and all audio coming from SDI, fiber, AES and analog sources for an incredible amount of audio processing capability in a single box.

High-quality conversion
AJA’s hardware conversion technology ensures the highest image quality for your productions.

Key conversion features include:

  • SD/HD up, down-conversion
  • SD/SD aspect ratio conversion
  • HD/HD cross-conversion (720p/1080i)
  • Up, down, cross-conversion with both the input and converted formats on SD/HD SDI outputs (both synchronized)
  • HD cross-conversion with simultaneous down-converted SDI output
  • Automatic Reverse Telecine detection and removal
  • Closed Caption conversion (CEA-608/CEA-708 standards)
  • AFD conversion or pass-through (user-selectable)


Sidebar Keying
FS1-X features a unique keyer configuration, allowing incoming signals to be combined in powerful ways. A common example is sidebar keying, where incoming video is converted from SD to HD but rather than stretching the 4:3 aspect ratio to fit in a 16:9 frame, a second signal is used to fill the sides of the 16:9 frame. This allows channel identification or other imagery to be placed in that area rather than having black bars on either side. The robust AFD features of FS1-X ensure that the aspect ratio of the outgoing signal is properly identified for downstream devices.

Automation
Many functions on FS1-X can be triggered by external GPI’s such as freezing an input or switching between presets, allowing easy integration into existing systems for seamless and accurate automation.

Extensive Connectivity
FS1-X is loaded with comprehensive I/O for converting between the widest range of analog and digital signals. Perfect for use in all broadcast and post production environments, featuring 3G-SDI inputs and outputs, HDMI and optional SDI Fiber I/O, comprehensive multi-channel audio connections supporting the latest standards, and I/O for analog video equipment, including HD and SD component.

Remote configuration and control
FS units are network ready and support SNMP monitoring and web-based remote control. Units can be connected to any Ethernet network via the built-in 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, allowing control and configuration of multiple FS units from any web browser on a connected computer. Configurations can be saved and applied to multiple units, ensuring consistency and quick configuration in large installs.

Architecture
FS1-X is designed to maximize flexibility while providing a dependable solution that is engineered to meet the demands of broadcast engineering. Dual, redundant power supplies ensure FS1-X remains online even in the event of a power supply failure.
