as the ADD-ON card will always generate 32 channels (where some can be zero) Channel shuffling is done in the ADD-ON card The Master Card has only one setting to enable the quad speed audio bus Every Quad-Speed ADD-ON card takes 32 channels from the ‘right hand ADD-ON card’ and adds (or overwrites) the local processed channels. and finaly into the Master Card The cross looping of the original design is now a straight loop The quad speed bus can also work in one direction You can use a Quad Speed audio bus to de-embed audio from the master and present on the ADD-ON card as AES/EBU. Features The following features and rules will apply: Up to 32 channels output from the master card with looping to up to 3 ADD-ON cards The ADD-ON card just picks the channels it wants to process Up to 32 channels input on the master card If the master card can handle less then 32 channels. the lowest channel numbers will be used. And we want the bus to be bidirectional. A new Master breaks the chain and the Master Card ADD-ON mode can be selected again. This can be done for any of the channels that are processed in the ADD-ON card Master Cards are switchable between normal and quad-speed bus Channel designations on the block schematics: Channel 1-32 (or less) are injected into the dark green large arrow from Master Card to ADD-ON card and looped on to the next ADD-ON card via the dark green arrow The ADD-ON card injects up to 32 channels into the brown large arrow An ADD-ON card will also actively loop extra processed channels into the next ADD-ON card. The new interface needs to be compatible with all existing hardware (frames) and in the implementation of the master card it needs to be backward compatible with the original ADD-ON bus. If a mode is selected all ADD-ON cards to that Master need to be in the same mode. so 32 channels in and 32 channels out at the same time. but all cards to the right of the master must be in the same mode as the master. We want more channels (32 per video stream seems possible in the near future). You can mix Master-Cards in one frame using the two different modes.Appendix 1 Quad speed ADD-ON bus Scope The internal audio ADD-ON bus needs an upgrade. Bitstream (like Dolby) or analog audio If applicable the ADD-ON card can also be used as in injection point of physical audio streams 25 . The master card will have two modes: Normal ADD-ON mode or Quad Speed audio ADD-ON mode These modes are selectable on the Master Card.
The first ADD-ON card can select any of the 32 channels for internal processing These channels are looped on to the next ADD-ON card. ADD 8 CHANNELS TO A STREAM OF 32 AUDIO OUT AUDIO OUT AUDIO OUT PROC 32CH IN FROM MASTER 32CH OUT TO NEXT ADD-ON 32CH IN FROM NEXT ADD-ON 32CH OUT TO MASTER TO MASTER QUAD SPEED MULTIPLEXING AUDIO BUS AUDIO TO SYNAPSE BUS CONTAINING ALL 32 CHANNELS WHERE 8 CHANNELS ARE PROCESSED AND ADDED TO THE STREAM TO MASTER TO MASTER 26 .Example The big difference between the new and old bus structure is the fact that it caries 4 times as much audio channels. (The DLA42 can also take 3 channels from the ADD-ON bus and 5 channels from its physical input) This looping works up to 3 times. and the other half is used to put the audio back The following graphic shows how a typical quad speed bus chain works MASTER CARD HD-SDI INPUT DE-EMBEDDING EMBEDDING HD-SDI OUTPUT The audio coming from the master card (dark green arrow) contains up to 32 channels. ADD 8 CHANNELS TO A STREAM OF 32 AUDIO OUT AUDIO OUT AUDIO OUT PROC 32CH IN FROM MASTER 32CH OUT TO NEXT ADD-ON 32CH IN FROM NEXT ADD-ON 32CH OUT QUAD SPEED MULTIPLEXING AUDIO BUS AUDIO TO SYNAPSE BUS CONTAINING ALL 32 CHANNELS WHERE 8 CHANNELS ARE PROCESSED AND ADDED TO THE STREAM AUDIO FROM SYNAPSE BUS CONTAINING ALL 32 CHANNELS AUDIO IN AUDIO IN AUDIO IN AUDIO IN DLA42 AUDIO OUT ADD-ON DE-EMBED SELECTOR TAKE ANY 8 FROM 32 ADD-ON EMBEDDED AUDIO MULTIPLEXER. This next ADD-ON (sitting in the next n+1 slot) Card can also free select any 8 from 32 channels. The brown arrow is the return path and sends the (processed) audio back to the master card. So half of the original physical infrastructure moves audio from the master card to the ADD-ON cards. These 32 channels are then transported to the next ADD-ON card which overwrites another 8 channels. 32CH OUT TO ADD-ON 32CH IN FROM ADD-ON QUAD SPEED MULTIPLEXING AUDIO BUS AUDIO FROM SYNAPSE BUS CONTAINING ALL 32 CHANNELS DLA42 AUDIO OUT ADD-ON DE-EMBED SELECTOR TAKE ANY 8 FROM 32 ADD-ON EMBEDDED AUDIO MULTIPLEXER. This path is 32 channels wide and is clocked from the master card. The ADD-ON card can overwrite for instance 8 channels of the 32.

It is also bi directional by design.
Channel-slot 25 to 32 are left empty in this example. The brown large arrow will always carry 32 channels from ADD-ON to ADD-ON. 27 .Multiplexing The injection of processed audio into the master card works differently then you were used to with the original audio ADD-ON bus. the insertion menu of for instance the DLA42 is much more flexible and allows putting every channel into any of the 32 channel-slots. and 3 Quad speed ADD-ON cards (the maximum). The first ADD-ON card inserts channels 1 to 8 This method allows for overwriting slots that come from the right hand Master Card. but they are inserted in slot 9-16 (of 32 slots). The example below shows how the flexibility could be used. One Master Card. The second ADD-ON card also processes 8 channels. In the example below you can see a 4 Card system. If the actual channels are used or which channels are used is determined in the ADD-ON card. Note: The top example shows a logical way of how the ADD-ON multiplexing could be performed. They are inserted (a menu selection) in slot 17-24 from 32 channel-slots. or from ADD-ON to Master Card. The last (most right) ADD-ON card processes 8 channels. However.
