Synapse signal processing & distribution power 4K production workflows

Axon’s popular Synapse signal processing line-up now offers a range of 4K products to support up and down conversion, routing and distribution, synchronization and auto phasing. The range also features a production toolbox designed to ease the challenges 4-wire production set-up by carrying Vanc and Hanc data such as timecode and embedded audio and providing a Dolby E encoder and decoder. Trusted to deliver at the heart of broadcast, Synapse has been successfully deployed in UHD productions, including 4K coverage of major live sports events.

GXG400-410 High end 4K, 3Gb/s, HD, SD up/down/cross converter and frame synchronizer with optional audio shuffler
The GXG400/410 are high end up/down/cross converters, also functioning as a 4K four wire up and down conversion. 

U4T100-140 4K (3840x2160) Ultra HD 4 wire toolbox with optional Dolby E processingThe U4T100 and U4T140 are 4K (4 wire) production toolboxes that will ease the challenges of a 4 wire production setup where the left top corner (channel A) is used to carry Vanc and Hanc data like timecode and embedded audio. The ‘140’ has an extra Dolby E encoder and decoder on board and will be capable of handling these signals internally. A quad speed audio bus can be used for additional Dolby E processing or other audio processing by using an ADD-ON card like the DEE28

U4D100 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) 4 wire to 1080p or 1080i down converterThe U4D100 is a 4K (3840x2180), 4 wire, to 1080p down-converter.  The low latency unit combines and filters the four quadrants into a 1080p (1920x1080) signal. For the 1080p60 and 1080p50 standards the card is completely transparent for all the ANC data from input 1. For the other standards the card must be locked to input and is only transparent for 2 groups of audio. 

U4U100 1080P to 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) 4 wire up converterThe U4U100 is a 1080p to 4k (4 wire) ultra HD up converter. The low latency unit extracts four quadrants out of a 1080p (1920x1080) and scales each individual part into 4 full 1920x1080 pictures

GDR416 4K, 3Gb/s, HD and SD four input distribution amplifier with 4 reclocked outputs per channel
The GDR416 is a four channel 4K (4 wire), 3Gb/s, HD and SD SDI reclocking distribution amplifier with 4 reclocked outputs per input
