4 Channel IRIG Video Inserter 6055C-4

The 6055C-4 is an analog video inserter that allows time stamping up to 1 microsecond resolution, text overlay, crosshairs, edge encoding, alarm inputs and messages into 4 asynchronous RS-170, NTSC, PAL or S-Video Signals. It can also act as a countdown clock.

The ITS Model 6055C-4 is a 4 channel IRIG Video Inserter. The insertion of IRIG Time messages and positioning of alarm messages are done via the keyboard and/or the RS-232 or Ethernet ports.

Firstly, 20 discrete control inputs (5 per channel), enable the alarm messages with either a TTL level or a contact closure. If the IRIG B time input is lost the 6055C-4 automatically switches to an internal real time clock. Another feature of this product is that it can be used as a Countdown Clock. Set up is by the Keyboard or remotely which is controlled by two discrete TTL Inputs. All the other operators set up functions is achieved by the front panel LCD Display.

Secondly, the 6055C-4 has two modes of insertion; constant contrast and white with black boarder. Both are independently selectable. Inserted messages are composed from a 96 character ASCII set. The characters are formed on a 7×9 or 5×7 pixel format. A size multiplier 2x horizontal and 2x vertical is also individually selectable. For example, when operating with NTSC or RS170 and with 7×9 character format selected, a full character field of 22 lines to 60 characters each is possible. If the X2 horizontal is selected 22 lines of 30 characters and if x2 horizontal and x2 vertical is selected than the field is reduced to 11 lines of 30 characters. The data encode function allows for the encoding of time and selected text independently into each video channel. Data may be “machine read” using ITS Model 6042 and 6142A decoders.

Finally, this unit is house in a 2u Rack mountable aluminium enclosure. It measures 48.26cm wide x 8.89cm high x 38.1cm long and powered by 100 to 240VAC, 50/60Hz.
