HMX6801+B4D, C4D

Auto-Sensing HD/SD-SDI Embedders with 4 AES Inputs

The HMX6801+ series of embedders for the 6800+™ core processing platform auto-senses an HD or SD-SDI video input and embeds up to four balanced or unbalanced AES/EBU inputs into any or all of the four audio groups.

Part of the 6800+ platform, there embedder modules accommodate all common 1080, 720 and 1035 interlaced and progressive HD video standards. The highest audio quality is maintained with 24-bit operation, making this series ideal for any broadcast/professional installation.

The embedders provide extensive flexibility in audio group configuration, with all four groups being accessible and any mix of input audio and/or test tones being supported. The groups can be configured completely independently of each other to finely tailor the embedded audio, as well as the dedicated AES output audio (+B2/C2), to meet specific needs. Users can accommodate multiple languages and address audio channel issues such as wrong audio, poor audio, swap audio channels, sum channels, send left-to-both or right-to-both and more. The modules also pass compressed audio such as Dolby® E.

HDX6801+ B4D provides four balanced AES outputs

HDX6801+ C4D provides four coaxial (unbalanced) AES outputs.

The HMX6801+ modules can be controlled manually via card-edge controls, or controlled and monitored via the CCS Navigator™ software application, HTTP web browser, or third-party SNMP-based control applications. The modules are Q-SEE™-compliant, allowing for direct thumbnail monitoring when installed in an Ethernet-equipped 6800+ frame.
