FOUR UP AND DOWN CONVERTERS FOR CRYSTAL VISIONS NEW FRAME SYSTEM Posted: 27/06/2017

Crystal Vision has released four up and down converters for the Vision frame system, each with different features for different applications. Performing flexible up, down and cross conversions between 3Gb/s, HD and SD sources, the UP-DOWN-VF range has inherited the excellent picture processing which has seen broadcasters standardise on Crystal Vision up and down converters and also introduces some new benefits for the first time including more video outputs, relay bypass protection, complimentary SNMP and the option of a backup reference for the synchronising versions.
