The MACH1 M.Sc breaks the price barrier for superior performance standards conversion. Its motion compensated algorithm helps to deliver excellent results at an affordable 4-field-conversion price. At just 1 RU size, full bi-directional conversion between composite PAL, NTSC and SECAM as well as 10-bit SDI signals is provided along with AES audio handling. Performance, size and price mean it is ideal for a wide range of applications including mobile applications, news and transmission. In addition, the clean motion portrayal of its M.Sc Motion Science standards conversion produces video that is not just good to look at, it is also compression-friendly – helping to minimize unnecessary motion artefacts in MPEG-2 bitstreams. An ergonomically designed front panel allows rapid access to key functions, with a LCD display providing information on signal parameters. The unit is fully RollCall™ compatible and the Mach1 is designed to integrate up to two IQ modules. This powerful feature enables users to customize their unit according to their application or system needs.
