Spotlight #12 - 6980G-HD


The Model 6980G-HD is a video inserter designed to insert GPS or IRIG B time into an SDI video. The unit will sense an applied SDI signal and automatically adjust to 480i, 480p, 720p or 1080i formats. A time message is inserted which is derived from either the internal GPS receiver or an applied IRIG B time code signal. When using GPS the unit automatically acquires all in-view satellites and locks an internal disciplined clock to the time reference. If an IRIG signal is used as a reference it is decoded and used to synchronize the clock. If the GPS or IRIG lock is lost the 6980G-HD will automatically continue to run on the internal clock.

Remote control of the 6980G-HD may be performed via either the Ethernet or RS-232 ports. Commands applied to these ports allow the operator to configure the output video display, enter alphanumeric data, position the movable crosshair and read the unit status and time data. The included keyboard provides for local control of the unit.

The 6980G-HD is housed in a 1U, 19 inch rack mountable aluminium enclosure, 1.72" high and 9" deep (including connectors) and is powered by 100 to 240VAC 50/60 Hz.
