    SCE-492 - Overview

    Introducing the SCE-492, on this new encoder the SDI outputs are re-clocked making the SDI output eye pattern generally better than the input. It is a better re-clocker than most re-clocking Distribution Amplifiers (DA). It has RAM that is reserved for XDS packets, the packets will be inserted into CEA-608 field 2 based on XDS packet priority and field 2 availability. The unit also has XDS menus for Parental Guidelines (V-Chip) and Transmission Station Identification (TSID) packets. The RAM can be filled using V-Chip software.

    It has 2 serial RS-232 ports, both with adjustable baud rates. It has 2 Ports that are tunneled to the Ethernet connector. Allowing two IP caption connections at one address. A menu allows you to select resend or redirect data from the Ethernet port to the serial ports. Resend means the unit processes the data and sends the data out. Redirect means the unit sends the data out but does not process the data.

    It has a GPI remote activated Legalizer also called Weather Lift. With a menu that allows you to select the amount of lines to be lifted. You can raise the lower 4 lines up 2, 3, or 4 lines or raise all lines to the top 4 lines. Recently the FCC has mandated that captions are not to be displayed over things like people's names, school closings, and so on. So this has become a major issue with broadcasters.

    The SCE-492 SDI closed caption encoder dubbed "Superior Encoder" is the second unit to be launched in the Chameleon Series. The idea of the Chameleon Series is that one product can be configured into many different units just by changing the software. Similar to a chameleon changing color based on its environment hence the name Chameleon Series.
