SATIS 2008 - Best of Show - Award Winner

The Evertz HD2020 Video PassPort™ is a high performance 1RU video conversion and frame synchronization platform. The HD2020 integrates four paths of up/down/cross conversion with a wide range of video/audio input/outputs. Each conversion path includes a full frame synchronizer. The Video PassPort™ is an ideal multi-path video/audio processor for any analog, digital or HDTV facility and represents an indispensable tool as facilities upgrade from analog to digital and HDTV infrastructure. The HD2020's processing capabilities and simple to use front panel interface makes it an ideal choice for ENG and DSNG truck applications.

The HD2020 can support up to 4x 3G*/HD/SD coax serial in, 4x 3G*/HD/SD fiber optic serial in, 4x composite analog video in, 4x mono analog audio in, 8x AES digital audio in as well as a DVI input. The HD2020 can support up to 4x 3G*/HD/SD coax serial out, 4x 3G*/HD/SDI fiber optic serial out, 4x composite analog video out, 8x mono analog audio out, 8x AES digital audio out as well as a full screen DVI output. A second DVI output is also available on which the HD2020 can generate a multi-image display from eight select video clean switch inputs. Discrete analog and AES audio inputs levels are also monitored and presented on the multi-display output.

A reference input with a passive loop is available to allow the HD2020 to lock to external reference. Finally, 8x Flex BNCs (4x Flex Left and 4x Flex Right) are incorporated to allow future expansion of functionality using Flex Processing Modules.

This Evertz converter is packaged in a space savings 1RU form factor and is designed for high availability 24/7 applications. The HD2020 has front serviceable and removable processing electronics in addition to dual power supplies and a removable front control panel.

An embedded web server enables simple uploading, downloading and design of system configurations using the STAMP™ configuration tool. Dual 10/100 Ethernet ports are provided for SNMP control/monitoring. The HD2020 is fully VistaLINK® PRO enabled for advanced remote control and monitoring. Additional multi-unit remote control options include a hardware based remote control panel and a PC based software remote control panel.

The HD2020 front panel (+FP) has been designed to deliver an easy to use and intuitive operator interface. The HD2020 can be controlled using the front panel engineering menu or through the use of twenty (20) front panel hot buttons. Each front panel hot button can be programmed as a "Control Macro" where multiple user defined parameters can be changed with a single button push. Using the front panel SHIFT button, an additional 20 "Control Macros" are also available.

Real time audio and video procing is achieved using the 4x video/audio proc scroll knobs located on the HD2020 front panel. Quick access to user programmable procing profiles is accomplished through simple "double punching" of front panel hot buttons. Power supply, fan and frame status is also continuously monitored and reported via the front panel Frame Status LEDs.

The HD2020 processing architecture allows its four up/down/cross conversion paths to independently connect to any system input and independently drive any system output. In addition, eight unique video sources can be routed to the Advanced Audio/Video Bridge (AAVB). Within the AAVB, sources are routed to the HD2020 internal audio processor, two internal eight input video clean switches and the internal octal split display processor. The HD2020 also supports internal bars and tone generation with source ID character burn-in capabilities. Video clean switch outputs can drive any system output.

Within the audio processor per channel audio delay is available for each embedded and discrete audio input channel. Following this, stereo to 5.1 up-mixing (+UMX), 5.1 to stereo down-mixing (+DMX), IntelliGain® audio loudness management (+IG) can be performed. In addition, a programmable audio equalizer is available (+EQ).

Two 16 channel audio embedders with per channel audio routing, inversion, gain and mono mixing capabilities feed the two AAVB clean switch outputs. Similar per channel audio routing, inversion, gain and mono-mixing capabilities are available for the 8x AES outputs (16 channels) and the 8x mono analog audio outputs.

* 3G Supported in HD2020-3G only.
