Snell Expands IQ Modular 3G Range With Flexible Solutions Multi-format and HD Facilities
Snell today announced a further expansion of the company’s IQ Modular 3G product range by launching a new video and audio processing platform and a new range of fiber-optic interfacing modules. Together, these additions to Snell’s IQ modular infrastructure range enable organizations to maintain flexibility in addressing the evolving demands of multi-format and HD broadcasting.
Snell’s new video and audio processing platform, the IQUAV10, is a compact, highly integrated processing engine ideally suited to space-constrained applications. It provides flexible analog and digital signal handling and advanced video and audio processing. The platform’s features include format conversion, synchronization, audio embedding, de-embedding, aspect ratio conversion, video enhancement, legalization, audio gain, delay, mixing, and channel routing. Because the IQUAV10 is available in configurations ranging from fully loaded systems to more cost-effective models with limited processing capabilities, users have the flexibility to choose only the functionality and software-enabled features they need.
The new IQ Modular 3G range of fiber-optic interfacing modules combines electrical-to-optical conversion with critical processing functions such as video synchronizing, audio embedding, and audio de-embedding. These single-slot, space-saving solutions free users from the limitations of copper infrastructure and enable them to work with both coax and fiber in planning cost-effective HD expansion and 3Gbps (1080p) signal delivery.
