High-Quality Digital Video Conversion
Our ADVC®1000 is a professional, high-quality bi-directional SDI/DV video converter designed for broadcast studio equipment. Featuring front-side controls and an LCD display, analog video and unbalanced audio outputs for monitor preview, and a solid, half-1 RU, 19-inch rackmount design, it is an ideal SDI I/O solution for any DV interface in a studio environment.

The ADVC1000 not only incorporates the same video conversion technology present in the entire ADVC family of products, providing excellent reproduction of the source video footage, but also features PerfectSync technology. PerfectSync technology, which controls and synchronizes the transfer rate of IEEE 1394 communication with an external reference signal, prevents skipped and duplicate frames and produces perfect conversion of all frames during DV-to-SDI conversion.
