Whenever a need arises to generate SDI signals from consumer or prosumer equipment, the MEJ provides a neat economical solution. A SCART connector plugged into a TV, VCR or set-top box picks up a composite (625/525 PAL/NTSC auto switched) output or RGB (for best possible DVD/SDI quality) output (this is automatically selected by a voltage on pin 16) and converts it to a 601/656 SDI 270Mb/s output on a BNC. The unit is powered via a 2.5mm screwlock DC connector and this latest version features a digital 10 bit RGB matrix for even better picture quality.
Two types of power supply are available - a plug-in type, with interchangeable pins for UK/Euro use and fitted with screwlock connector, and a BPR compact in-line power supply with a two-pin IEC figure-of-eight mains input (mating cable is 42-160, not included) and a non-locking 2.5mm DC connector. A SCART line-connector including a hook and loop fastening kit is also available for non-SCART applications.
