LYNX Technik AG, provider of modular interfaces is launching its new family of yellobrik multi-channel embedders / de-embedders at IBC 2011 stand 8.E24. The three new modules expand the ever-growing yellobrik line of compact signal processor solutions. An 8-channel 3G/HD/SD audio embedder/de-embedder (model: PDM 1284 B/D) is available in two versions; one for AES balanced audio and second version for AES unbalanced audio.

The PDM 1284B - AES audio embedder / de-embedder for unbalanced audio is multi-functional in that it functions either as a four channel AES embedder or de-embedder, or as a two channel AES embedder and de-embedder. Additional channels of audio can be embedded and de-embedded by cascading modules together. The PDM 1284D - AES audio embedder / de-embedder for balanced audio provides simultaneous embedding and de-embedding for four AES inputs / outputs. Both the PDM 1284B and PDM 1284D automatically detect the audio format and deactivate the sample rate converters to preserve encoded bit streams such as DolbyE. Also new at IBC is the PDM 1382 – analog audio embedder/de-embedder. This unit selectively de-embeds four channels within any audio group of an SDI video signal, to any of the analog outputs. It can also simultaneously embed up to four channels of analog audio replacing the previously de-embedded audio and / or add audio into the SDI output. Additional channels of audio can be embedded and de-embedded by cascading modules together. These yellobriks have an optional fiber I/O feature, which adds fiber transceiver functionality for embedding and de-embedding directly from a fiber path. These three new yellobrik’s include a selectable “auto black” mode that uses a black video frame if no SDI input is present. This means that the module embeds audio even when no video source is available. As with all yellobriks, users control these modules via the front panel rotary switches and indicators. There is also LED indication for SDI input status and audio group presence. The new yellobrik embedders/de-embedders will be on display at IBC 2011 stand 8.E24.


Bluebell Triple Stack Silhouette

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.
