The HD-206/SD/1 is an HD and SD Standalone Time and Date Video Inserter. The time is inserted onto an SDI video signal. Additionally, up to 30 characters of user defined text may be inserted into the video. Two independent character windows are available and can be used to insert Time, Date, Time and Date and/or User Defined Text. Ten different font sizes are available and the characters may be located anywhere on the video using the horizontal and vertical controls. Included font colors are Grayscale along with six solid colors (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Violet).
The unit is easily configured using the front panel controls or the front panel mounted USB port with the supplied PC software. The front panel controls consist of four push buttons used to navigate the various setup menus that are displayed on a 16 x 2 character LCD display. The USB port and the PC software provide a user-friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface) used to configure the unit.
The HD-206/SD/1 may be ordered with up to six independent video channels (denoted by #1-6 after the slash), and all channels over /2 come in a rack-mounted enclosure. Additionally, versions that read timecodes are available. For example, the HD-266/SD/1 reads ESE or SMPTE/EBU Timecode as a reference for the Time of Day clock. The HD-455/SD/1 reads and displays SMPTE/EBU Timecode with Frame Data for editing purposes or SMPTE Timer Display, and the HD-275/SD/1 reads IRIG timecode.
