HD-SDI to Composite PAL converter

The nanoSDI2PAL is a HD-SDI to PAL composite video converter on a miniPCI-express form factor card. The nanoSDI2PAL automatically captures, scales and converts High Definition HD-SDI to PAL composite video. The compact form factor means the nanoSDI2PAL is ideal for video conversion in SWaP constrained systems.

The nanoSDI2PAL accepts SMPTE 292M compliant HD-SDI signals on a 75 Ohm MCX connector. The HD-SDI video input is captured, scaled and converted to analogue composite PAL video. A 75 Ohm analogue composite output provides a high quality PAL video output for driving composite video display or connection to analogue video recording systems.

The nanoSDI2PAL is an intelligent module that requires no user configuration and is completely operating system neutral. The nanoSDI2PAL is simply powered via the miniPCI-express connector.
