Notes NA1012-ET

  1. The Nanoconverter products are RoHS, REACH and UL/UR compliant.
  2. The NA1012 converts video signals received from a DVI or HDMI source for transmission over an 3G/HD- SDI interface which requires clock signals to be in a well defined range. This might not be the case when standard HDMI or DVI output of desktop computers, laptop computers ot other consumer devices are used as signal source.
    The HDMI/DVI TMDS input clock requirements are:
    • 3G mode: 148.5MHz or 148.5 MHz/1.001 +/- 60ppm
    • HD mode: 74.25MHz or 74.25MHz/1.001 +/- 80 ppm

  3. The device detects and measures video input parameter and adjusts all necessary settings accordingly. Manual control is not required. However, the serial control interface can be used for status checking. Any terminal software can be used, whereas parameters have to be set to 38400bps, 8 data bits, no parity and 1 stop bit (8N1). No handshake must be used.
  4. The current device version does not support audio.
  5. The device version does not process HDCP encrypted HDMI input signals.
