AV Interface & Protocol Conversion
Semtech’s UHD-SDI/HDMI conversion devices are uniquely positioned to provide robust rate conversion, interface standard conversion and protocol conversion, with low-power operation and a small footprint. These devices are ideal for integration in 4K monitors, cameras, extenders, format converters, production switchers, and other AV equipment.
The GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox supports SDI rate conversions between multi-link, dual-link and single-link UHD-SDI interfaces. Our device supports 12Gbps, 6Gbps, 3Gbps, and 1.5Gbps data rates in the conversion modes and supports 270Mbps in bypass mode. It eases the system challenge of receiving multi-link SDI signals by automatically compensating for input channel skew.
The GS12170 SDI/HDMI Bridge includes all the features of the GS12070, and adds conversion of HDMI signals to SDI, or vice versa. It enables low-power, seamlessly connected, uncompressed 4K video, multi-channel audio, and large amounts of metadata to cross the barrier between HDMI and SDI without requiring an expensive FPGA.
