What is it?A quad de-embedder capable of extracting four AES audio streams (8 audio channels) from an SDI signal and outputting broadcast-quality balanced AES audio. DetailsThe 4262D 3G-HD-SD extracts audio from any two embedded audio groups and can be used in cascade with a second unit to enable de-embedding from all four available groups (16 audio channels). It automatically detects 3G, HD or 270Mb/s SD-SDI inputs and provides automatic input cable equalisation. The design incorporates two re-clocked SDI outputs and features input presence LEDs plus group status and power indicators. The device is said to be simple to use and configure using a set of DIP switches and a table of settings printed on the rear of the unit. On power-up, the unit automatically performs a short self-test indicated by flashing group LEDs. The signal LED will be green when there is power and a valid SDI signal present or red when there is power but no SDI signal. Two group LEDs light according to the groups selected by the DIP switches; LEDs are green if the unit is receiving a valid video signal and successfully de-embedding audio from that group, otherwise they are red. The 4262D 3G-HD-SD can be supplied with an optional XLR breakout cable (XLR to BNC adaptors are also available for unbalanced AES outputs) and requires an external power supply or a rack-mounting frame with a central supply. DTL produces an optional 1RU frame with space for up to 5 units and a larger 2U model that takes up to 14.

HD OBs - trucking on a road near you

They're everywhere - at cricket grounds, football stadia, conference venues, theatres, local arts centres or just generally slogging up and down motorways - and, as Kevin Hilton reports, there looks like no stopping the growing number of high definition outside broadcast trucks. This perception is confirmed by figures in the latest edition of the HD OB Van Directory, which details 42 new vehicles across the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
