SM08 is an aCVi to HD-SDI converter module.

aCVi is a video interface for transmitting SD and HD video over long distances of coaxial or twisted pair cable.

aCVi has applications in:

  • CCTV/security.
  • Industrial inspection.
  • Remote imaging.
  • Subsea imaging, ROV vehicles.
  • Pipeline inspection.
  • Vehicle cameras.
  • Information displays.
  • 3D/stereo inspection.

SM08 accepts aCVi inputs which it decodes to an HD-SDI output. It is available either as a built and tested PCB (SB08) for incorporation into your own products, or as a complete boxed module (SM08).

It is compatible with the SM06 aCVi transmitter module.

SM08 aCVi module connections

  • No user setup and adjustment required.
  • Coaxial or twisted pair cable support (user selectable).
  • Accepts aCVi inputs in 720p-25/30/50/59.94/60Hz, 1080p-24/25/29.97/30Hz and 1080i-50/59.94/60Hz video standards which it decodes to HD-SDI outputs.
  • Automatic standard detection (manual selection of 29.97Hz and 59.94Hz standards).
  • 30MHz luma bandwidth and 7.5MHz chroma bandwidth (coaxial cable)
  • Fully specified for transmission of >300m (RG-59 coaxial).
  • Automatic cable length equalisation.
