Selenio X50™

Intelligent Frame Synchronizer and Converter

Imagine Communications continues to set the standard for innovative, top-performing processors - the Selenio X50 intelligent frame synchronizer and converter. This best-in-class, single-channel input with two processed outputs delivers the exceptional quality and functionality that have come to define the popular and award-winning Imagine Communications series of 1RU processors, which also includes the Selenio X85.

The Selenio X50 is compact and cost-effective, yet feature-rich, offering an array of analog and digital baseband video and audio processing capabilities. This 1RU frame synchronizer/converter effectively and reliably supports standard-definition and high-definition formats, including built-in 3 Gb/s 1080p Level A and Level B-DL processing and 3DTV capabilities for hybrid television and production systems. With easy-to-use controls, the Selenio X50 comes standard with a myriad of features, including color correction, closed caption/teletext capabilities, control and monitoring via a built-in Silverlight web server, active format description (AFD) support, two fully controllable aspect ratio converters and 24-channel internal audio processing. Available options include CWDM  fiber input and output (transceiver) plug-ins, Dolby® Digital and Dolby® E codecs, DTS Neural Surround Up/Down Mix, Multimerge and DTS Neural Loudness Control options.

The unique Rules Engine capability puts custom video and audio signal management into the hands of the user so that specially modified code does not need to be uploaded. Any video and/or audio input scenario can be detected with the user determining processing required for the output.

The powerful, affordable and energy-efficient Selenio X50 processor can easily be incorporated into the workflow of any broadcast environment — from small stations and OB vans to production studios and networks. Frame sync, proc amp and color correction capability for all 1080p/psf production formats (23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30) is now available with a basic frame rate converter that can be used either for graphics, or as a low-cost backup for linear or motion-compensated frame rate conversion in a critical path
