Multi-format In/Multi-format Out

Designed for a wide range of workflows in mid, post and live video productions, the VC Series offers flexible format conversion of Digital/Analog, HD/SD or compressed/uncompressed signals. The VC series also accepts signals and direct connections from computer RGB sources. A wide variety of output devices like record decks, data projectors or plasma/LCD displays can be directly connected.

Designed for the Highest Quality Image

The VC Series uses high quality A/D and D/A converters for input and output along with internal 4:4:4 10 bit signal processing. From simple format conversion to MPEG encode/decode to complex frame rate conversions, the VC Series delivers professional results.

Compatible with HDV devices

Compatible with wide variety of HDV cameras and VTR's from Sony, Canon and JVC, the VC Series offers a high quality processor for encoding and decoding HDV in real-time. EDIROL's audio technology also makes simultaneous processing of the audio signal possible.

Auto format detection and simultaneous output from multiple terminals

The VC Series features automatic detection of the input source and simultaneous output of the converted signal to multiple terminals such as SDI, IEEE 1394, DVI and analog component. This enables the recording or display of a single source to multiple recording devices or displays.

Bi-directional Conversion and Scaling

Bi-directional conversion of different formats like 59.94i, 50p etc. is possible with the VC Series. Multiple resolutions like 480i/p,720p or 1080i can be input/output along with NTSC/PAL conversion.

Gen lock with external devices

The input and output to and from the VC series can be gen-locked with external devices. The VC supports a variety of sync signals including analog BB, Bi-level (SD) or Tri-level (HD). The VC Series' built-in frame synchronizer helps to lock signals from consumer products or computers.

Time code and embedded audio

When performing HD-SDI/SDI <> HDV/DV conversion, the VC Series can pass the original time code and audio stream signals. The audio embedded in the HD-SDI or SDI signal can be separated and sent from the analog outputs.The VC Series can embed audio from the analog inputs to the HD-SDI/SDI or HDV/DV signal.

Audio Delay Function

Audio can be precisely delayed by millisecond or frames to compensate for the video delay caused by frame synchronizing or conversion processing. The Audio Delay function makes the perfect "lip sync" possible.
