The AJA HD10MD3 is a miniature digital downconverter for converting HD-SDI video to standard definition SDI and analog component composite video. The HD10MD3 uses a full 10-bit data path and a multi-point interpolation to produce excellent quality down-converted video. In addition, the HD10MD3 converts either 23.98/24Hz 1080p23.98sf or 1080p24sf to a 59.94 Hz output video using the standard 3:2 pulldown technique. The output can be formatted for either 4:3 or 16:9 standard definition monitors. For 4:3 monitors, the output can be formatted for either the Letterbox or Crop modes. Four channel AES embedded audio is passed to the SDI output. The HD10MD3 is also dual-rate in that SD inputs pass to the SDI and analog outputs.
