    The award-winning 3G/HD/SD-SDI Fusion3Gr 9901-UDX card offers up/down/cross format conversion, frame sync, and advanced audio and ancillary data support, plus many other powerful features. Full audio support includes per-channel audio delay. Remote control is quick and easy with the free DashBoardT remote control software or the Cobalt OGCP-9000 remote control panels.

    You can select from options to add (as inputs and/or outputs) fiber, analog video, AES, and analog audio. This level of integration reduces module count and simplifies the signal chain, as well as providing flexibility for ever-changing requirements, including 3-D TV compliant 1080p. Options also include wings insertion, general purpose keying, color correction, Dolbyr E/AC-3 encoding and decoding (with both decode and re-encode on the same card), ITU/ATSC/EBU compliant loudness metering, and Linear Acousticr upmixing and loudness processing. Where the full conversion capability is not required, the 9901 series is available as the following base model versions (if desired later, any of these versions can be field upgraded to base 9901-UDX functionality using a firmware upgrade without removing the card from its frame).
