Rentex No. XVP2180 | Mfr No. FS2

The AJA FS2 Dual Channel Frame Synchronizer and Converter supports two independent streams of 3G/HD/SD 10-bit Broadcast quality video and two independent groups of 16-channel AES audio simultaneously. Each individual video channel supports analog component or composite, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, Dual-Link, and HDMI I/O inputs/outputs. You can use the FS2 as two separate frame synchronizers/format converters, or the two channels can be linked with the internal keyer to do the work of multiple devices, such as HD sidebar keying where both the video and background graphics are up converted and combined. Each channel features still-store, keyer, and video proc amp/color corrector offering more expansion options.

Notes:
• In the case of 1080PsF 23.98 input – and when 1080i 59.94 (or 525i) is selected as an output format, the FS2 automatically does 3:2 pulldown to get the correct frame rate. Similarly, in the case of 1080pSF/24 input, FS2 automatically does 3:2 pulldown to get the correct frame rate.
• When passing 24 or 60 frame rate video, output is high definition.

Up-Conversion

• Hardware: 10-bit
• Anamorphic: fullscreen
• Pillarbox 4:3: results in a 4:3 image in center of screen with black sidebars
• Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
• Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill full screen
• Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change


Down-Conversion

• Hardware: 10-bit
• Anamorphic: fullscreen
• Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
• Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size


Cross-Conversion

• Hardware 10-bit
• 1080i to 720p
• 720p to 1080i
• 720p to 1080PsF


SD to SD Aspect Ratio Conversion

• Letterbox: This transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
• H Crop: Will produce a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
• SD Pillarbox: Will produce an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
• V Crop: Will transform SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image


Timecode

• SDI RP188 via SDI BNC
• Reference input
• Analog Color Black (1V) or Composite Sync (2 or 4V)
• Looping, nonterminating
