TL7051 | DUAL 3G HD-SDI INTERFACE FOR SONY FCB

High Definition Serial Digital Interface for Sony Block Cameras

The TL7051 is a dual 3G-SDI/HD-SDI Output Video Transceiver module from AIVION. It connects to the digital video interface of Sony’s FCB-EV, FCB-EH or FCB-ES block cameras and support several progressive and interlace HDTV formats. As no analog to digital conversion is done on these modules, excellent output image quality is achieved.

Features

  • Digital 4Ch./8Ch. LVDS video input from camera
  • Full automatic video input standard detection
  • Dual 3G/HD-SDI outputs compliant to SMPTE424M / SMPTE292M
  • Native digital signal processing chain for best image quality
  • Breakout of camera analog HDTV YPbPr and CVBS video
    (requires TL7051 extended cable kit)
  • RS232 and TTL level serial control interface
  • Robust RS485 differential serial control interface
  • Supply voltage 5V or 12V DC regulated
  • NEW: Temperature monitoring with alert function

Supported Video Standards

The following HDTV video standards are supported by the TL7051. Note that video standard availability is always dependent on the capability of the camera block used.

  • 1080p output at 60Hz, 59.94Hz, 50Hz, 30Hz, 29.97Hz and 25Hz
  • 720p output at 60Hz, 59.94Hz, 50Hz, 30Hz, 29.97Hz and 25Hz
  • 1080i output at 60Hz, 59.94Hz and 50Hz
