EAS6800+ and VAM6800+ Installation and Operation Manuals


About This Document This document describes two new features that have been added to the EAS6800+ High Quality Video Encoder Synchronizer and Analog Audio Demultiplexer Installation and Operation Manual, Edition A, and VAM6800+ Composite Video and Analog Audio Monitoring Module Installation and Operation Manual, Edition A: Analog Audio Output Level Offset Q-SEE Compliant Thumbnails

Analog Audio Output Level Offset


Note
For information on using card-edge controls, please refer to Understanding Card-Edge Controls on page 39 of your FR6802+ Installation and Operation Manual.

Firmware version 1.01 adds the ability to attenuate all analog audio outputs simultaneously. This allows you to achieve additional analog audio output levels beyond what can be achieved using the analog level jumpers (see "Setting Jumpers for Audio Level" on page 14 of your EAS6800+ manual or page 12 of your VAM6800+ manual). This output level adjustment is achieved by the Output Level Offset parameter, which has a range of -5.0 to 0.0 dB in 1.0 dB steps. Table 1 illustrates the card-edge control and range of the OP Level Offset parameter. Table 1. Parameter OptionsEAS6800+ and VAM6800+ Bank, Rotary Parameter Switch
7, 8 Output Level Offset

Function

Options

Applies attenuation to -5.0 to 0.0 db analog audio output levels (steps of 1.0 dB)

For example, to set an analog output level of +15 dBu for a digital input audio level of 0 dBFS, use a combination of analog audio level jumper settings and adjustment of the OP Level Offset parameter. 1. Set jumpers to set the analog audio output level to +16 dBu (see section "Setting Jumpers for Audio Level"). For this setting, refer to Figure 2-2 on page 14 of your EAS6800+ Installation and Operation Manual or page 12 of your VAM6800+ Installation and Operation Manual.

2. Adjust the OP Level Offset parameter to -1.0 dB. Use either a remote control application (e.g. PilotLite, Pilot or Navigator) or card-edge control to adjust the parameter to this setting. The combination of these two settings will achieve an analog audio output level of +15 dBu for a digital input audio level of 0 dBFS.

Q-SEE Compliant Thumbnails


Firmware version 1.01 adds Q-SEE compliant thumbnails to EAS6800+ and VAM6800+ modules. To use Q-SEE compliant features, modules must be installed in a FR6802+QXF frame that also contains a 6800+Eth module. When you open a Control window in Pilot or Navigator for the 6800+Eth module, all Q-SEE compliant modules provide thumbnails on a Video Streaming tab. In addition, EAS6800+ and VAM6800+ module Control windows have a new Streaming tab where a thumbnail, updated at up to three frames per second, is displayed. For more information on Q-SEE compliant thumbnails, see your FR6802+QXF Frames Installation and Operation Manual.
