    DP-800S Description

    Serial Digital Interface (SDI)

    The DP-800S converts HDMI camera data from Sony 4K series block cameras to SDI. It supports a level A or level B 6G-SDI output over a single BNC.

    Flexible FPGA-Based Design

    The DP-800S is designed with a powerful FPGA with multiple high-speed, low-latency transceivers with integrated advanced signal conditioning and clock data recovery. Each transceiver supports maximum frequencies up to 12.5G that can be used for a variety of high-speed video data interfaces.

    Real-Time Text or Graphics

    The DP-800S supports the addition of text or graphics onto the SDI video ouput. Text or graphics data is added by using the DP800S serial connector. Real-time data from GPS recievers or other telemetry devices is supported.

    Full Integration

    The DP-800S solution offers complete board and camera control for custom OEM integration. A 30-pin micro-coax cable connects to the Sony block camera for video data transfer and camera communication. The DP-800S provides power to the Sony block and also supports the transfer of Sony VISCA commands through an optional USB cable.
