NEXUS with SDI Board for Premium Productions
New NEXUS board XHDI 02 supports even 3G SDI Format
Like other NEXUS SD-SDI and HD-SDI boards, the XHDI 02 de-embeds, processes and re-embeds all the audio accompanying the video from and to the SDI stream and also offers a multitude of other useful functions. The NEXUS XHDI 02 board can be equipped with sample-rate converters and is then able to de-embed the audio even from asynchronous video signals and re-embed them again.
Dolby E®signals can be accommodated, by combining the XHDI 02 with an XDED (neXus Dolby E® Decoder) board. The Dolby E®signals are de-embedded, decoded, mixed and processed, if required, in NEXUS, then re-encoded and re-embedded. This procedure is also applicable to asynchronous SDI signals. As a further unique feature, the board has the ability to compensate for the delays inherent in the Dolby E® decoding and coding process. This ensures that video and audio are always in perfect lip-sync.
XHDI 02’s comprehensive functionality introduces a welcome simplification to the workflow, which could otherwise only be achieved with additional external devices!
A number of major broadcasters — for example, ARD in Germany, — have announced their intention of making their NEXUS installations capable of dealing with the 1080p50 and 1080p60 video formats and 3G-SDI, and to use them as the formats of choice for their most important productions as soon as HD becomes a regular broadcast format. Others, such as tpc and RTS in Switzerland and an important American sports broadcaster have already completed this transition and are already using the brand-new NEXUS XHDI 02 boards.
