FA-9600 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD Dual-Channel Multi-Purpose Signal Processor

Categories: ,

Description

Provides HDR and Wide Color Gamut support. Offers exceptional conversion format delivery, including 12G, 4K(UHD), 1080p and HD/SD.

Each of the FA-9600 processor’s two HD/SD inputs includes a frame synchronizer. Because the signal processor features 12G-SDI terminals, optional
software opens the door to 4K(UHD) production. Adding an optional expansion card provides four more channels of 3G-SDI input/output or six
channels of 12G-SDI distributed output.*1

The FA-9600 is much more than a basic frame synchronizer. It simpli(cid:31)es all types of video conversion. A newly developed color processing circuit
supports the latest gamut and dynamic range specifcations, and an optional converter circuit is available for up/down/cross conversion. Offering a
wide range of audio processing, core features of remapping and gain adjustment, the FA-9600 can be expanded with optional cards*1 that make it an
ideal standalone solution at transmission centers, in mobile production trucks, production studios, news stations, and other nonlinear editing and
playout production environments.

*1 For details, see the expansion cards in “Options.”

FA-9600

  • Dual channel frame synchronization, via two SDI inputs and four outputs. Able to switch between two modes to suit the application.
    • Simultaneous 4K/HD mode: Use two internal paths for 4K and HD. Single-channel up/down*4 conversion
    • Dual HD mode: Use two internal HD paths. Dual-channel up/down*4 conversion
  • Extensive professional video format support: 12G*5/6G*5/3G/HD/SD-SDIT
  • Connectivity with a broad range of equipment; Also equipped with HDMI ports
  • The FA-9600 comes standard with a dedicated application that runs on Windows, providing full access to many
    functions and allows a wide variety of settings. Web server functionality is also implemented in the main unit, allowing
    adjustments*6 to various parameters from mobile and tablet devices.

*4 FA-96UDC is required. *5 When FA-964K is installed. Conversions that include 4K(UHD) are effective only on the Line 1-side. *6 This feature is available for a limited number of function and parameters.

New color processing circuit provides strong support in HD/4K(UHD) production. This is useful not only when converting to unifed
specifcations before input to a switcher or editing system, but also at output – before HDR and SDR simulcasts.

  • Supports and converts between the broad ITU-R BT.2020 gamut for 4K/8K and the conventional ITU-R BT.709 gamut in HD.
  • FA-9600
  • Compensates for differences among external devices using EOTF/OETF corresponding to various HDR or SDR curves.T EOTF/OETF log curves and gamut can be registered from a PC.T Dynamic range conversion compatible with HLG, PQ, SDR, and other log curves. Also compatible with S-Log3, Canon Log2, and other camera log curves.T Using FA-96AHDR Advanced Function Software option, processor is compatible with ITU-R BT.2100-compliant dynamic range conversion.
