Product Info
Tech Specs
The OP+HDX+AO 3G/HD/SD audio de-embedder for the 6800+ module core processing platform has up to eight AES and eight analog audio outputs with optical receiver.

The module allows for control over the video while functioning as a de-embedded audio processor for hot-switching de-embedded audio. This new module provides full audio delay, audio processing and the ability to de-embed metadata to external sources. The OP+HDX+AO is ideal for any broadcast operation where the de-embedding of audio from HD or SD video signals is required, or where HD or SD video and (embedded and/or discrete) audio signals are processed.

The OP+HDX+AO is an auto-sensing 3G/SD/HD-SDI 4-AES audio de-multiplexer and processing amplifier with one digital video input and one DARS reference input and has four processed outputs with optical receiver. The modules support de-embedding and passing of Dolby E™ metadata, and picture and sound control through integrated processing amplifiers. The basic OP+HDX+AO provides SD and HD-SDI audio de-embedding, and there is an optional upgrade to 3G HD-SDI (including dual-link). Another optional upgrade adds four AES outputs, for a total of eight.

The OP+HDX+AO can be controlled manually via card-edge controls with OSD video display or remotely using Magellan CCS Navigator™, HTTP web server or third-party SNMP-based control applications. In addition, the module is Q-SEE™-compliant, allowing for direct thumbnail monitoring when installed in a FR6822+QXFE frame.
