  • Grass Valley releases the ADVC Range at NAB

    Grass Valley releases the ADVC Range at NAB

    April 18, 2011, 11:22 am
    The four new ADVC G- Series converters offer a number features, such as frame synchronization, 3D stereoscopic signal conversion, and true 1080p capability with 3Gb/s SDI.

    These new converters come in a variety of flavors.



    The ADVC G1, an "any in" to SDI multi-functional converter/upscaler with a frame synchronizer with HD/SD-SDI (3G/1.5G support). The ADVC G1 will convert and, or upscale sources from HDMI, DVI, component, composite, S-Video, AES/EBU, and analog audio to HD/SD-SDI (3G/1.5G support), and can also be used to embed audio.
    The ADVC G2, has an SDI & HDMI to analog and SDI multi-functional converter/downscaler with frame synchronizer and audio outputs for the de-embedding of audio. The ADVC G2 can be used as a monitoring device for HDMI and HD/SD-SDI (3G/1.5G support) sources. It can also be used as an HDMI to HD/SD-SDI (3G/1.5G support) converter and/or downscaler

    The ADVC G3, features a twin-SDI to HDMI 1.4 converter with 3D support. The ADVC G3 can be used as a standard HD/SD- SDI (3G/1.5G support) to HDMI converter, but also features a second SDI input, which can be used for second-eye input. The ADVC G3 will, in real time, multiplex the two signals for a 3D output via HDMI. The analog audio and AES/EBU outputs can be used for monitoring both 2D and 3D content. The ADVC G3 features 3D multiplexing technology supported by the latest HDMI 1.4a (Side-by-Side, Top-and-Bottom, and Frame Packing-sequential), which can be manually selected.
    The ADVC G4, a sync generator with a reference input is designed with nine outputs that can be controlled in groups of three. For example, three can be SD with the other six being HD, or vice-versa. The ADVC G4 also includes a 48 kHz word-clock as well as a reference input, which allows it to be combined with other ADVC G4 units when an extension from the main system is necessary or used as an extender when more than nine outputs are needed. The ADVC G4 features the most comprehensive format support in the compact sync generator market.
    These new ADVC G-Series converters can convert virtually any signal or source feed into the required format for editing. This inclusion of a dual 1080p signal processing for 3D projects, is a fantastic added bonus.

      This week I test out the durability of the ioSafe hard drive. It's fire proof and water proof. I wanted to find out how water proof it is, so I flooded the drive. Check out the video below to see if it still works after the flooding.

      Caldigit VR 6TB Review

      September 18, 2011, 9:45 am
      Recently I had a great discussion with the Twitter community about picking up a new raid for myself as my older ones were now aging, and I was running out of space. Many people suggested a Thunderbolt drive. However Macbook Pro is only a year old and does not support Thunderbolt, and Apple has yet to release a new MacPro Tower. Thus I really did not see the need for a Thunderbolt drive yet. Enter The CalDigit VR.
