Imagine OP+HDX+AO+R+1

  • Description
  • Features
  • Specification

The OP+HDX+AO 3G/HD/SD audio de-embedder for the 6800+ module core processing platform has up to eight AES and eight analog audio outputs with optical receiver.

The module allows for control over the video while functioning as a de-embedded audio processor for hot-switching de-embedded audio. This new module provides full audio delay, audio processing and the ability to de-embed metadata to external sources. The OP+HDX+AO is ideal for any broadcast operation where the de-embedding of audio from HD or SD video signals is required, or where HD or SD video and (embedded and/or discrete) audio signals are processed.
