500ACO2-HD/SD

Dual HD/SD-SDI Digital Auto Signal 2x1 Changeover

  • VistaLINK® enabled

The 500ACO2-HD/SD dual HD/SD Autochangeover is designed to provide extension to the 5600ACO for HD or SD SDI, DVB-ASI, AES audio, bi-level/tri-level syncs and NTSC/PAL video. The unit can also be operated as a standalone changeover unit with two independent 2X1 switchers. The 500ACO uses latching relays to ensure maximum reliability and minimal disruption in the event of any failure.

The 500ACO2-HD/SD is housed in the 500FR exponent Frame that will hold up to 16 modules.

Features
  • Auto detection of six signal types
  • Five modes of operation (including VistaLINK®)
  • Auto changeover - two standalone auto changeovers or two link changeovers
  • Manual DIP switch control - two independently controlled 2x1 switchers
  • GPI Control - two independently GPI controlled 2x1 switchers
  • ACO Extension - slave unit of the 5600ACO (requires 5600ACO firmware version 1.2 or higher)
  • Support for VistaLINK® monitoring and control
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame with no BNC disconnect required
  • Tally output on Frame Status bus upon loss of input signal for quality monitoring
  • Latching relays maintain the current path on loss of power
  • VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring via SNMP (using VistaLINK® PRO) when installed in 500FR frame with 500FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller
