Grass Valley ADVC-G2 (ADVCG2) HDMI and SDI to Analogue and SDI Multi-Functional Converter/Upconverter with Frame Synchronizer
Like other members of the ADVC G-Series family, the ADVC G2 combines the latest conversion technologies in a compact 1/3 RU form factor.
Featuring HDMI and HD/SD-SDI (3G/1.5G support) for the inputs and HD/SD-SDI (3G/1.5G support), component, composite, S-Video, AES/EBU, and analogue audio for the outputs, the new ADVC G2 plays the role of many converters for the price of one. The ADVC G2 also features 3G support, downconverting, and a frame synchronizer, which becomes very handy when, for example, connecting the SDI out to a switcher.
The ADVC G2 can be used as a monitoring device for HDMI and HD/SD-SDI sources, but it can also act as an HDMI to HD/SD-SDI (3G/1.5G support) converter.
The AES/EBU and analogue audio outputs, used for audio de-embedding, are a welcome feature in most monitoring applications.
