Features and technical details
AJA Dual Channel Universal FS2 can simultaneously work with two independent streams of 3G/HD/SD 10-bit Broadcast quality video and two independent groups of 16 channel AES audio. Each FS2 video channel supports virtually any input or output: analog component or composite, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, Dual-Link and HDMI I/O. You can use the FS2 as two separate Frame Synchronizers/Format Converters, or combine the channels in a variety of powerful ways. The FS2 can up- or down-convert between SD and HD and cross-convert between HD formats - including 3G 1080p50/60 formats. Additionally, the FS2 has full input and output signal routing, allowing any I/O port to be assigned to either processing channel. For audio, the FS2 has two audio processors - each processor supporting 16-channel AES/EBU digital audio, 16 channel embedded audio and 8-channel balanced analog audio with a variety of controls for maximum flexibility.The FS2 supports closed captioning and the conversion of closed captioning between SD and HD formats - including full conversion between CEA-608 and CEA-708 caption standards. The FS2 is also network ready, supporting SNMP monitoring and web-based remote control. A 3rd-party Remote Control Panel is available. With support of all broadcast video formats the FS2 makes matching up disparate video and audio systems simple-one converter box does it all. The FS2 is ideally suited for broadcast facilities, production trucks and other rapidly changing environments.
