Therewith the HD10SR endorses the existing converter boxes for HDTV A/D- and D/A-conversion and provides a well-priced HDTV generator for test-pictures. To transmit digital HDTV through long-distanced cables accurately, the HD Serial Digital Equalizer completes the product line.
The HD-SDI series will be provided as boxes for end users or as board for OEMs.
