Digital View has announced the release of a new ‘all-in-one’ HDSDI & 3G support LCD interface controller. The ALR-1920-SDI combines HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort and SDI inputs for TFT panels upto WUXGA resolution (1920x1200).

Designed for monitor builders and display integrators working in the exacting environments of the professional video market, the ALR-1920-SDI takes the original Digital View ALR-1920 platform and integrates 1.5Gbits and 3Gbit bit rate SDI input signal support to create a compact, low cost and easy-to-integrate single board HDSDI package.

The ALR-1920-SDI offers full industry compliance to SMPTE standards 292M, 259M-C, 424M & 425M. It offers HDMI 1.3, single-link DisplayPort 1.1a and VGA input for resolutions ranging from VGA to WUXGA (PC) or 480i to 1080P (Video). It also has a re-clocked SDI loop-through and further outputs for stereo audio from SDI, HDMI and DisplayPort signals with embedded audio.

The ALR-1920-SDI is an extremely flexible controller with installed support for over 700 LCD panels from leading manufacturers such as Samsung, Sharp, LG, NEC, Optrex, Chi Mei and AUO. Even with the compact board design (184.99mm x 93.5mm x 13.53mm), the ALR-1920-SDI offers an onboard power supply with both 12 and 24 volt DC input, and provides panel power for 3.3V, 5V, 12V or 18V LCD displays. The On Screen Display provides an enhanced user interface for audio and video adjustments, and can be controlled via digital button boards, surface mount membrane switches, RS-232 commands or infra-red remote control.
