SDI Video Overlay Products
Our SDI HD video overlay products are tailored to broadcast, commercial and semi-professional (prosumer) applications requiring superior quality and high reliability. Our products offer the maximum number of features in a single package while giving the user the full flexibility to configure the unit to specific application requirements.
The DX-4400 is a high performance low latency single/dual input SD/HD/2K/4K-SDI Video Text and Graphics Overlay Inserter supporting alpha blended text overlay / on screen display (OSD) on progressive, progressive segmented frame (PsF) and interlaced SD, HD, FHD, 2K and Cinema 4K video formats.
An integrated ARM SoC supports enhanced text, image and graphics overlay, line/circle drawing and rotations. Up to 1,000 independent text fields, images and graphic elements can be overlaid (inserted) onto the video stream. An extensive command set allows for full control of size, font type, color, position, background color and full transparency control. The overlay data and user commands are delivered to the unit through the RS-232 (DB9 or USB) serial ports or via Ethernet.
The product passes all video content* (on the primary video input) including audio channels and embedded metadata. Either SDI input can be used for PIP and for a scaled dual (side-by-side) display. Secondary SDI outputs provide a clean loop pass-thru output of each input.
The unit has five(*) user selectable Modes of operation, each offering a different set of features and functionalities.
*Note: Based on customer feedback, additional Modes of operation are being added via firmware updates.
In this mode the product provides 2 video channels with separate text and graphics overlays for each channel. Each channel supports the SD, HD, and 3G video resolutions (listed below) complete with ancillary data pass through.
This mode also offers a low latency setting in which the video path has less than one frame of delay. In this configuration, zoom, Alpha Blending and PiP functions are not supported.
This offers a zoom control for each channel for progressive video formats at SD, HD & FHD video resolutions. Ancillary data pass-through is not supported.
This mode provides a single text inserter with a main input and a secondary input. Both inputs have scaling capabilities to allow for use as Picture in Picture (PiP), split screen or side by side configurations. The unit has a single text and graphics overlay and supports the SD, HD, and 3G modes listed in the product specifications. Ancillary data from input 1 passes through the unit to the output.
The unit provides a text and graphics overlay inserter for one channel of 4K video transported in the SMPTE dual-link mode of operation. Ancillary data pass through is not supported.
Note, 4K support is a product upgrade to the base product.
*Note, 4K support is a product upgrade to the base product.
*Note, not all features are supported across all video formats.
