DP-800S interface board

Converts video data from Sony 4K block cameras to SDI.

The DP-800S interface board from dPict Imaging converts video data from Sony 4K block cameras to SDI format and supports level A or level B 6G-SDI output over a single BNC connector. The DP-800S’ FPGA features multiple high-speed and low-latency transceivers with integrated, advanced signal conditioning and clock data recovery that each support frequencies up to 12.5G.

Now with real-time overlay on the SDI video output.

The DP-800S supports FCB-ES8230, FCB-ER8300, FCB-ER8530, and FCB-ER8550 cameras, and features complete board and camera control for OEM integration and a 30-pin micro-coax cable for camera connection. The DP-800S can power the camera and offers optional support for transfer of Sony VISCA command via USB cable.

Serial Digital Interface (SDI)

The DP-800S converts HDMI camera data from Sony 4K series block cameras to SDI. It supports a level A or level B 6G-SDI output over a single BNC.

Flexible FPGA-Based Design

The DP-800S is designed with a powerful FPGA with multiple high-speed, low-latency transceivers with integrated advanced signal conditioning and clock data recovery. Each transceiver supports maximum frequencies up to 12.5G that can be used for a variety of high-speed video data interfaces.

Real-Time Text or Graphics

The DP-800S supports the addition of text or graphics onto the SDI video ouput. Text or graphics data is added by using the DP800S serial connector. Real-time data from GPS recievers or other telemetry devices is supported.

Full Integration

The DP-800S solution offers complete board and camera control for custom OEM integration. A 30-pin micro-coax cable connects to the Sony block camera for video data transfer and camera communication. The DP-800S provides power to the Sony block and also supports the transfer of Sony VISCA commands through an optional USB cable.
