RGB Spectrum Announces New Flexible Scan Converter

RGB Spectrum, Berkeley, Calif., a leading manufacturer of videographic products and workstations and graphic displays, has introduced the new RGB/Videolink® 1450AX auto-sync scan converter that transforms high resolution computer graphics to television format. The model 1450AX automatically synchronizes to any computer signal with a horizontal scan rate from 21.5-80.0 kHz.

According to the manufacturer, Model 1450AX is one of the lowest priced scan converters on the market to automatically accept the full range of computer and workstation signals, including PCs, Mac lis and workstations from Sun, DEC, HP/Apollo, IBM, Silicon Graphics and others.

The new model is the latest product in RGB Spectrum's line of video scan converters, which incorporate anti-aliasing, full 24-bit color processing and real time operation. Essentially a dedicated image processor, the RGB/Videolink accepts full screen, non-interlaced RGB input, provides genlock, sync generation and encoding to output broadcast quality (NTSC RS-170A or PAL) video. A proprietary filter eliminates flicker in the video signal.

The 1450AX provides composite (NTSC or PAL), RGB, S-Video and Betacam/M II outputs. It also features a linear keyer for overlaying live video with computer graphics.

According to Bob Marcus, president of RGB Spectrum, "The Model 1450AX allows a company with a wide range of computers and workstations to address virtually all of its scan conversion requirements. Applications include video taping, video projection and teleconferencing." For further information and free literature, Circle 16 on Reader Service Card
