The C10SP parallel/serial converter products are designed to efficiently adapt 8 or 10 bit parallel digital video equipment to serial digital interfaces. The C10 converters attach directly to the “D” connectors of parallel equipment – eliminating the need for expensive and un-reliable parallel cables. At only .65 inches (16.5mm) wide, the C10 converters can fit on even the highest density parallel equipment. The C10 products can be powered from a small wall plug-in power supply (provided). An optional rack-mount supply can power up to 24 C10 converters.

An exclusive feature of the C1- converters are their signal processing functions. Controlled by external dip-switches, these functions address the problems of integrating 8 and 10 bit digital equipment. The dither mode properly converts 10 bit video to 8 bit resolution. This function is useful when feeding 8 bit equipment, such as VTRs and DVEs, with 10 bit equipment such as a switcher. The 8-to-10 bit input format mode is useful when feeding 10 bit equipment/system with 8 bit equipment that only drives 8 data bits of the interface.

AJA’s signal processing functions simplify digital systems by taking 8/10 bit format control out of operations and making it a one-time set-up at installation time. By converting 8 bit parallel equipment to 10 bit compatible serial digital, systems can be standardized at 10 bit serial digital.
