NEW VIDEO - Tackling Pro AV Applications with SDI | Symmetry Blog

Apr 21, 2021
 

 

Serial Digital Interface (SDI) is a common interface that is used in professional audio-video (Pro AV) applications. Standardized by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), SDI is used for the transmission of uncompressed and unencrypted digital video signal with optional audio. The digital interface covers video signals from 270 Mb/s standard definition (SD) up to today’s 12 Gb/s ultra-high-definition (UHD) through coaxial cables over long distances (ranging from 100 to 300m). The coaxial cables include BNC connectors that allow cables to lock in place for a reliable connection. Common applications include point-to-point (single-link, dual-link, or multi-link) copper-based video applications, including cameras (security/medical/industrial), camcorders (broadcasting), video switch and distribution servers, presentation switchers, medical visualizations (endoscopes/monitors), and digital signage. Find out more in our latest SDI 101 video, where we break down the basics of SDI, how it works, and common use cases, to set you up for success on your next project.
