Blackmagic Teranex Express
Teranex Express features a machined aluminum design that provides exceptional durability for installation in broadcast trucks and portable racks. You get a compact 1 rack unit design with built in LCD monitor to easily change settings, familiar Teranex control panel that’s easy to use and broadcast quality connections for 24/7 reliability.
You get the latest technology and innovative features to give you the highest quality realtime SD, HD and Ultra HD conversions! Inside you’ll find advanced technology like 12G-SDI to handle everything from SD all the way up to emerging formats like Ultra HD 60p! There’s optical fiber for running video over long distances, high quality 10-bit image processing, and support for 16 channels of embedded audio, subtitles, AFD/WSS data and more.
Transparent conversions between SD, HD and Ultra HD
Teranex Express can perform an incredible 178 up/down conversions between SD, HD, and Ultra HD in real time. You can use Teranex Express for video conversions or to synchronize non genlocked, external feeds, or cameras into switchers for live production. Conversions retain timecode, include closed caption data, and always maintain perfect audio sync so your video is immediately ready for editing or broadcast.
High Quality Deinterlace
Patented PixelMotion technology and multi direction filtering
Teranex’s proprietary and patented PixelMotion deinterlacing algorithms create perfect progressive frames for conversion by adjusting the aperture on a pixel by pixel basis. That means you get improved image quality because the vertical resolution is maintained. PixelMotion deinterlacing preserves source detail and, when combined with multi direction diagonal filters, eliminates jaggies on conversions so you get well defined edges and the sharpest images possible!
Adjust color, aspect ratio and more!
Now you can quickly and easily find the tools you need to correct color, convert formats or change aspect ratio! Teranex Express features a logically designed front panel and soft menus so you can adjust luminance, saturation, hue, black level, R-Y/B-Y color difference, sharpness, and more with the built in proc amp controls. Teranex Express features an integrated LCD screen on the front panel so you can make adjustments with confidence during live broadcasts.
Multi channel audio, timecode and subtitles
Video includes a lot more than images, and Teranex supports conversion of up to 16 audio channels plus timecode and closed caption VANC data. Teranex Express is also compatible with Dolby encoded audio, so it never has to be decoded or re-encoded during up and down conversions. With Teranex Express your subtitles are always retained and both audio and timecode always stay in perfect sync with your video!
High speed multi-rate SDI for SD, HD and Ultra HD
12G-SDI provides an incredible 12 gigabits per second of throughput, that’s about 8 times faster than HD-SDI, and sets a new standard for SDI connectivity! Just like 6G-SDI, it’s compatible with all of your SD, HD, and Ultra HD equipment. You can output Ultra HD over a single cable and because of the increased bandwidth, 12G-SDI is also supporting new emerging formats, like high frame rate Ultra HD 60P.
Optical Fiber : Lossless long distance video connections
Traditional copper cabling is bulky, expensive, and can only be used in lengths of 300’ or less for video. Fiber optic cable is readily available, cost effective, and can carry video up to an amazing 28 miles without any signal loss! If you’re in a large facility or working on location with cameras distributed in the field, Teranex Express can connect to them via optical fiber. Depending on whether you’re doing SD, HD, or Ultra HD determines the maximum length of your fiber run:
- Standard Definition = 27.8 miles
- High Definition (720p, 1080i, 1080p) = 15.5 miles
- Ultra HD = 7.5 miles
