The FA-9100/9100RPS supports all formats: HD, SD, analog, digital, plus audio. It uses 12-bit internal processing for high quality images. The FA-9100/9100RPS goes beyond the realm of a typical signal processor featuring numerous options like an up-converter, down-converter, color corrector, median-based noise reduction, logo generator, Dolby E encoder/decoder. THE Processor is the next generation multi purpose signal processor.
- Input/Output of All HD, SD, Digital, and Analog Formats
The FA-9100/9100RPS supports all video signal formats, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, HD analog component, SD analog component, NTSC/PAL analog composite, and Y/C.
- Digital/Analog Audio Support
The FA-9100/9100RPS provides digital or analog input/output for audio signals in the same way as it handles video signals. 8-channel support is provided for embedded audio and AES/EBU, and 4-channel support is provided for analog audio. Multi-channel audio signal processing is possible without phase differences between channels. Individual level adjustments can be made for each audio channel, and audio delay adjustment is provided for synchronizing to the video signal.
- 12-bit Internal Processing for High Image Quality
The FA-9100/9100RPS uses 12-bit internal processing for dramatically better format conversion and A/D and D/A image quality. FOR-A use the best elements in image processing technology which enables us to provide image quality that stands out from the competition.
- High-quality A/D Converter and D/A Converter
In the FA-9100/9100RPS, the input signal is converted to all video output signals that are possible. Signal conversion of all output signals by A/D or D/A is constantly performed, allowing an on-air system to have all output signals available.
- Powerful Frame Synchronizer Performance
FOR-A’s frame synchronizers have always exhibited superior performance when processing video with poor quality signals. The FA- 9100/9100RPS incorporates all of this technical expertise into a single unit, developed with the highest priority on reliable frame synchronization.
Up/Down/Cross-converter is optionally available for enabling conversion of HD signals to SD, SD signals to HD, HD 1080i to 720p, and HD 720p to 1080i. With the FA-9100/RPS, there's no need to have an external up/down/cross converter.
*No frame rate conversion function is provided.
- HDV/DV Interface
HDV/DV encoder/decoder option available for decoding DV or HDV streams from an IEEE1394 terminal and encoding to various baseband signal DV/HDV formats.
FA-90DV: DV interface card / FA-90HDV: DV and HDV interface card.
- Dolby E / Dolby Digital
A Dolby E / Dolby Digital card can be installed as an additional audio function. This option provides support for Dolby E / Dolby Digital a surround sound distribution system by Dolby Laboratories. Dolby E or Dolby Digital signals input from an external encoder can be decoded, or internal audio signals can be encoded to Dolby E and output.
FA-90DE-D: Dolby E / Dolby Digital decoder card / FA-91DE-ED: Dolby E / Dolby Digital* encoder/decoder card
*Dolby Digital encode is not supported
- Process Control
The standard model allows adjusting video level, chroma level, chroma phase, and setup level. Remote control of these parameters is also possible.
- Color Correction
In addition to the standard process control function, a color correction option is also available. Three available color correction modes (balanced, differential and sepia) with gamma correction and various clip functions are provided to enable easy reproduction of the video’s original color space and range.
- 2D/3D Comb Filter
2D or 3D comb filter is available for selection during analog composite signal conversion.
- Powerful Video Delay Circuit
A delay unit is incorporated that also allows adjustment of video delay in addition to audio delay. This is useful for delay adjustment with Dolby E signals and for preparing composites with computer graphics when using Virtual Studio.
- Standard Support for SNMP Monitoring
The FA-9100/9100RPS has a built-in Ethernet port that provides support for network monitoring using SNMP protocol. This feature allows remote checking of device status, signal errors and other available information.
- Wide Range of Remote Interfaces
Like all FOR-A FA-series models, a remote interface using a BNC connection is standard. Additionally, remote control using GPI is also supported.
- Scramble Connection Support
The FA-9100/9100RPS supports scramble connections to allow multiple remote control units and SNMP control software to communicate with multiple main units.
- Logo Generator
An optional logo generator can be installed for insertion of company or program logos or indication credits for creative content. The FA- 9100/9100RPS can serve as a useful tool for program branding.
- Frame Rate Converter
Provides frame rate conversion by nearest frame method between: 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/24PsF, 1080/23.98PsF, 720/59.94p, 720/50p, 525/60, 625/50 including analog component and composite (NTSC, PAL).
- Auto Level Controller
Automatic real-time monitoring and correction of: White Level, Black Level and Gamma Curve simultaneously.
- FA-9100RPS: Redundant Power Supply Model
The redundant power supply model, FA-9100RPS also available.
