Dual Independent 3G/HD/SD Up/Down/Cross Video Frame Synchronizers & along with Dual 16 Channel Audio Processors & Equal a World of Possibility

The FS2 can simultaneously work with two independent streams of 3G/HD/SD 10-bit Broadcast quality video and two independent groups of 16 channel AES audio. Each FS2 video channel supports virtually any input or output: analog component or composite & 3G/HD/SD-SDI & Dual-Link and HDMI I/O. You can use the FS2 as two separate Frame Synchronizers/Format Converters & or combine the channels in a variety of powerful ways—for example HD sidebar keying where both the video and background graphics are upconverted and combined. To expand your possibilities further & each channel possesses its own still-store & keyer & and video proc amp/color corrector. The FS2 can up- or down-convert between SD and HD & and cross-convert between HD formats—including 3G 1080p50/60 formats. Additionally & the FS2 has full input and output signal routing & allowing any I/O port to be assigned to either processing channel.

For audio & the FS2 has two audio processors—each processor supporting 16-channel AES/EBU digital audio & 16 channel embedded audio & and 8-channel balanced analog audio with a variety of controls for maximum flexibility.

The FS2 supports closed captioning and the conversion of closed captioning between SD and HD formats—including full conversion between CEA-608 and CEA-708 caption standards. The FS2 is also network ready & supporting SNMP monitoring and web-based remote control. A 3rd-party Remote Control Panel is available (contact your AJA dealer—or AJA directly & for more information).

Options available on the FS2 include Dolby® E Encoding & Dolby® E Decoding & and 3G/HD/SD Optical Fiber I/O.

With support of all broadcast video formats the FS2 makes matching up disparate video and audio systems simple —one converter box does it all. The FS2 is ideally suited for broadcast facilities & production trucks and other rapidly changing environments.
