Leitch Announces First Modular HDTV Upconverter in NEO Processing Platform (17/8/2004)

Leitch Technology Corporation (TSX:LTV) today announced the immediate availability of the first modular HDTV upconverter in NEO(tm), the company's advanced, award-winning processing platform. Offering extremely cost-effective upconversion from SDI to HDTV, the HUC-3901 is designed to provide stations of all sizes with an affordable solution to make the mandated transition to HDTV.

The HUC-3901 supports both 1080i and 720p outputs, offers either quick selection from five preset common aspect ratios or fully scalable output aspect ratio and picture position and will remap one group of embedded audio with matching delay into the output HDTV signal. With the HUC-3901, customers can perform last-stage upconversion of SDI signals prior to DTV transmission, bridge existing SDI content into an HDTV island, upconvert existing CG video and repurpose existing key/fill signals for master control - all at an affordable price point.

"By launching the HUC-3901 within the NEO processing platform, we are able to offer the market a cost-effective upconversion solution that also demonstrates powerful functionality and flexibility," said Tim Thorsteinson, president and CEO of Leitch Technology. "We are confident that the introduction of the HUC-3901 will make HD upconversion more accessible to a wide range of broadcast professionals."

As part of Leitch's NEO series, the HUC-3901 is designed to be used in combination with the wide range of existing NEO HDTV products: HDTV frame syncs, multiplexers, demultiplexers, distribution amplifiers, branding products and switching products. In addition, as part of the NEO product line, the HUC-3901 is integrated into Leitch's Command Control System(tm) (CCS), which provides IP-based, real-time monitoring and control. CCS hardware control panels and software applications tie all major Leitch product lines together under a common control and monitoring infrastructure.
