The SDI-in/out Option

SDI-in/out Option - click here to enlarge To get a high-quality image when using "Forward T" products, the ability to connect digital video signal sources/receivers via the SDI-in/out option is available. An SDI board is installed on the FD300 board, the connector strip being securely attached to the case.

There are three BNC connectors for the input/output SDI signals (video with embedded audio):

  • SDI input - SMPTE-259M-C receiver block provides receiving the ITU-R-601 digital video signal
  • SDI output - SMPTE-259M-C transmitter block provides transmitting the ITU-R-601 digital video signal

To power up, use a standard connector on the board such as for the floppy disk drive.
Important: the power supply is connected to the FD300 board only (the power cord comes with the SDI option). For more detail, see the document ( 1.2M ).
