About the Grass Valley ADVC-HDM1

The Grass Valley / Canopus ADVC-HDM1 provides high-quality, bi-directional conversion between HD-SDI and HDV signals, complete with embedded audio. It's perfect for recording from HD-SDI sources to the Turbo intelligent digital disc recorder (iDDR) - or for use as a standalone converter without a computer. It can also encode HD MPEG-2 transport streams up to a full 1920x1080 resolution using one of eight different bit-rate settings that best suits your workflow.

The ADVC-HDM1 unit also lets you input external time-code information when encoding in HDV; control HD-SDI decks via HDV and vice versa with AV/C-RS-422 device control conversion; and use simple, two-button control for its encoding/decoding and time-code mode via the front panel. Convenient half-width, 19-inch rack, 1 RU form factor.
