Broadcast quality, 12-bit sampling, 10-bit processing synchronisers and time base stabilisers with composite, YC and either SDI or analogue component interfaces, in a compact, self-powered, 1U half-rack package. All functions may be accessed using controls on the interactive front panel or using Rollcall control via USB. They work equally well with broadcast grade sources as with noisy, unstable sources such as radio links or VHS players.
TBS150D SDI synchroniser
Provides high-quality frame synchronisation and time base stabilisation. Composite inputs are tolerant to noise and errors and are decoded with a 12-bit sampling rate and 5-line comb filter. Genlock phase can be adjusted by approximately +/-1 line and can either be locked to reference input or set to free-run. A unique 'floating mode' for no lip-sync error is available to enable the output to follow shortly after the input, so preventing lip-sync errors and frame drop / repeats even during sync disturbances and asynchronous input switches.
All functions including luminance and chrominance gain, black level, NTSC hue and genlock functions, input selection, input format and output format are accessed from the front panel with LCD display or via Rollcall. Input format can be set to auto-detect. The TBS150D is tolerant to SMPTE RP168 vertical interval switch and missing / repeated vertical interval lines in 625. All VANC and HANC data is passed when input and output are the same standard.
Inputs: Two SDI 525/625 line inputs, 2 x BNC. One composite (or Y) loop-through reference input, BNC. Two composite inputs, 27MHz 12-bit sampling, 2 x BNC. Composite inputs will accept PAL, NTSC (or -J), NTSC4.4, PAL-N, PAL-M, SECAM with automatic detection. One YC input, 27MHz 12-bit sampling, four-pin mini DIN. YC inputs will accept PAL, NTSC (or -J), NTSC4.4, PAL-N, PAL-M with automatic detection.
Outputs: Two SDI 525/625 line outputs, 2 x BNC. Two composite outputs, 2 x BNC fed from 27MHz, 12-bit D to A converters. Composite outputs may be set to PAL, NTSC, NTSC-J, PAL-N, PAL-M formats. One YC output, four-pole mini-DIN, fed from a 27MHz, 12-bit D to A converter. YC output formats may be set to PAL, NTSC, NTSC-J, PAL-N, PAL-M.
Power source: 110-240VAC, 47-63Hz 0.4A, IEC inlet
Dimensions: 220 x 250 x 44mm. Weight 3.0kg.
Rated operating temperature: 0 to 35 degrees C.
Included accessories: Manual
Optional accessories: 1U rack-mounting kit, to fit one or two units in 1U rack space.
TBS150 Component synchroniser
This model is similar in specification to the TBS150D except that the SDI interface is replaced by an analogue component interface. The two SDI inputs are replaced with one YPbPr component input, 27MHz 12-bit sampling, 3 x BNC. The two SDI outputs are replaced with one component YPbPr or RGB output, 3 x BNC, fed by a 27MHz, 12-bit D to A converter.
