Intelligent Single, Clean Quiet Switchover for HD/SD/ASI Sources

The ACO6800+ switchover module is designed for the 6800+™ core processing platform and provides both the primary and backup paths critical to maintaining uninterrupted video and audio signal flow.

Multiple versions of the ACO6800+ are offered to suit the varied redundancy needs of broadcast and production facilities, OB trucks, satellite operators, cable headends, and mobile TV and IPTV operations.

The ACO6800+ is available as a single- or dual-channel module that provides switchover capabilities from the primary to the backup path in the event of a signal failure. In addition to the basic switchover module, the ACO6800+ is also available as an intelligent Q-SEE™-compliant module that monitors video, audio and metadata at ingest checks levels for consistency and scans for errors.

ACO6800+ISCST Intelligent Single Clean Switch Automatic Switchover

Provides Q-SEE-driven 2×1 signal protection with clean video switch and quiet audio fade between sources

Provides frame sync/audio sync capability

Switches signals between redundant signals at the point of ingest and ingest timing into a satellite DTH, mobile TV, or IPTV facility

The Clean/Quiet ACO6800+ISCST module enures that there are no abrupt relays or interruptions of video and audio signals (e.g., in the event of a cable or fiber cut) and no audible “pops” or noises when the automatic changeover takes place, restoring the integrity of the signal.
