AJA Video System's FS1-X is the next evolution in frame synchronization and conversion. Within its compact 1RU chassis, FS1-X integrates an amazing array of video and audio connectivity and processing, including 64-channel MADI audio over coax or fiber. With its flexible architecture, FS1-X utilizes a high-quality, motion adaptive linear Frame Rate Converter for smooth motion conversion between a wide range of frame rates whether for broadcast, production or live events.

Key Features:

  • 1RU HD/SD Frame Synchronizer
  • Supports 2 video channels: one with full conversion, one pass through
  • 10-bit up-, down-, and cross-convert to simultaneous outputs
  • MADI, AES, Embedded and Analog audio support
  • Component and Composite Analog HD/SD video input and output
  • LAN Control via web browser on any platform
  • All outputs active at all times
  • Closed Caption conversion; up-, down-, cross-conversion between CEA-608 and CEA-708
  • AFD support for optimal aspect ratio conversion
  • 5-year Warranty

Incredible frame rate conversion

The growth of 5.1 and 7.1 audio has increased the number of audio channels that must be managed in a production. 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 64-channel MADI input and output. An internal 224x224 audio matrix allows full routing of MADI 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
  • 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.
