SKU: HD-SDI Audio De-Embedder Blade 3 Category:


Wheatstone HD-SDI Blade 3The HD-SDI BLADE-3 is a specialty BLADE (I/O Router) for extracting encapsulated audio from a serial digital interface (SDI). It is capable of de-embedding up to four HD-SDI streams and up to 8 AES/EBU pairs (16 audio channels) per stream, enabling you to ingest audio into the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network from video production automation systems, routers and other professional video equipment that uses HD-SDI.

The HD-SDI BLADE-3 has four BNC connectors for coaxial input, and includes logic control, on-board utility functions and the dedicated controller that is at the core of its intelligence. Like other BLADES, the HD-SDI BLADE-3 has its own CPU and operating system and provides a 1000BaseT (Gigabit) network interface for optimum network QoS and reliability. The HD-SDI BLADE-3 is AES67 compatible for interoperability with other AES67 compatible systems and devices and has two built-in 8×2 stereo mixers. Included are 12 universal logic (GPIO) ports for interfacing various external switches, indicators and devices for control purposes – as well as 128 software logic ports for routing and controlling devices anywhere on the network.
