Please note, that Christie has discontinued the DVI and SDI Processor.

The DVI Processor and SDI Processor can be purchased as separate products. In the past they were shipped with the QUAD Players, QUAD Servers, Broadcast DUAL Servers, or Broadcast QUAD Servers.

DVI Processor

The DVI Processor has two functionalities: on the one hand it splits the DVI signals coming from Pandoras Box hardware thus, it is possible to connect up to 4 monitors, projectors, other display devices via DVI. Please note that the DVI Processor can handle DVI-D signals only, any adaptation and conversion to analog signals like VGA or RGBHV is not supported! Many supported resolutions and timings accord to the international VESA standards. In addition, we included more 50Hz timings. Note that 75Hz and 85 Hz timings are not included but supported with custom EDIDs.
It is also possible to import custom EDIDs, defining not included resolutions and timings. DisplayIDs are supported as well; for the sake of simplicity this manual will use the term "EDID" meaning EDID as well as DisplayID.

All connected devices must support the same EDID. It is not possible to set up different resolutions per output.

On the other hand the DVI Processor converts the DVI signals coming from Pandoras Box hardware to SDI signals, wherewith SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI signals are supported. All supported SDI Timing EDIDs are standardized (EIA/CEA-861-D). The SDI signals accord to the specifications of SMPTE (274M, 296M, 125M, ITU-R BT.656).

The DVI Processor settings can be called via the PB Menu, please find their description in the software chapter whilst the hardware is explained in detailed on the following page.

SDI Processor

The SDI Processor converts the DVI signals coming from Pandoras Box hardware to SDI signals, wherewith SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI signals are supported. All supported SDI Timing EDIDs are standardized (EIA/CEA-861-D). The SDI signals accord to the specifications of SMPTE (274M, 296M, 125M, ITU-R BT.656).

Optionally, the SDI Processor splits each signal into two slices. Each output signal is duplicated, thus it possible to connect up to 8 monitors, projectors, other display devices via SDI.

All connected devices must support the same EDID. It is not possible to set up different resolutions per output.
