FLEXIBLE EMBEDDER DE-EMBEDDER FOR CRYSTAL VISIONS NEW FRAME SYSTEM Posted: 18/05/2017

Crystal Vision has added flexible embedding and de-embedding to its new Vision frame system. Working with 3Gb/s, HD and SD sources, TANDEM10-VF is a powerful four group audio embedder/de-embedder with the ability to embed and de-embed a mixture of up to eight external AES stereo pairs and four stereo pairs (or eight mono channels) of external analogue audio making it equally suited to those who need to embed and de-embed at the same time or to those who want a single product for use as an embedder or de-embedder as required. Giving more video outputs than the company's previous embedders/de-embedders, the feature-rich TANDEM10-VF includes full audio routing, audio and video processing, flexible delay compensation, fibre input/output connectivity and comprehensive signal monitoring.
