The 9066 offers upconversion (including analog-to-digital conversions using 12-bit conversion depth), SD-SDI and analog video inputs, video processing, full audio embed/de-embed, crosspoint, and level control (with analog and AES discrete audio inputs), and frame sync with video/audio offset. The upconverter allows upconversion to several HD formats, or can pass SD video without conversion.

The 9066 also provides AFD functions that detect the incoming AFD code, allow independent custom ARC to be applied for each incoming AFD code, and set the desired AFD code to be inserted on the output, even if there is no code detected on the input. Closed captions and timecode are preserved through up conversions. CC data is decoded from line 21 and inserted into the SDI stream on a user-selectable line. The 9066 provides full user remote and card-edge proc control (with user memory) that allows adjustment of gain, offset, saturation/hue, audio levels, audio routing, frame sync, and many other controls. Factory presets enable a return to factory settings.
