AJA Reseller Bulletin: AJA FS2 v2.0 firmware update

AJA Reseller Bulletin: AJA FS2 v2.0 firmware update

AJA is pleased to announce the release of v2.0 firmware for the FS2 Frame Synchronizer. The new v2.0 firmware adds significant new functionality as well as improvements to existing features.

DVI Scaler with ROI (Region of Interest):

FS2 version v2.0 software introduces the ability to use non-broadcast video signals as inputs to the FS2 (aka “DVI formats”, “VESA formats”, “Computer Formats” – see Appendix M: “Notes on “DVI” vs. “HDMI” terminology in the main manual). These signals must be connected via the FS2’s HDMI input connector, and must be digital video signals compatible with single-link DVI (maximum pixel clock frequency = 165 MHz).

The new ROI controls provide a convenient way to crop a portion of a video input, and scale it to the raster. With video inputs coming from computer screens and other computer-type devices, this use case is becoming more common. Instead of displaying the entire computer “desktop” (i.e. what the user sees on the computer monitor), a speci!c Region Of Interest can easily be cropped – such as the contents of a single window on the computer screen. This allows the user to define the area within the original input frame, while cropping all of the video outside of the Region Of Interest.

Dolby Framer with additional timing adjustments:

This parameter enables or disables automatic timing correction of the Dolby E signal.

When ON, Dolby E timing is auto-corrected to the minimum delay possible while synchronizing with the video blanking interval. Normal Audio Delay parameters for the corresponding Dolby Framer Input channel pair are disabled. When OFF, no Dolby E timing auto-correction is performed and Normal Audio Delay parameters are enabled.

When set to OFFSET, Dolby E timing is first auto-corrected to a nominal delay while synchronizing with the video blanking interval; then the delay is adjusted by the Offset specified in 9.2 Dolby Framer Offset (Frames) and 9.3 Dolby Framer Offset (Samples). Normal Audio Delay parameters for the corresponding Dolby Framer Input channel pair are disabled.

In ON and OFFSET modes, if 1.0 Audio Input is set to Channel Map or Stereo Map, the 6.x Audio Delay menus for that pair are hidden.

Presets:

Added 20 additional presets for a total of 40 shared between the two processors.

The updated firmware can be downloaded below.
