Wohler releases HDCC series card

Wohler Technologies has launched a multifunctional HDCC Series card that enables higher frame density by performing encoding of both SCTE-104 playout automation system messages and closed-caption data into the baseband signal.

Available in a Ross openGear hosting frame, the new HDCC-708T104-OG1 card extends Wohler's HDCC ancillary data management platform to address insertion of the customized SCTE-104 cues that facilitate seamless commercial ad insertion.

It offers frame-accurate encoding of SCTE-104 playout automation system messages into the SDI signal, which in turn ensures that ad playout is triggered correctly. The card provides a single SDI video channel SCTE-104 VANC data inserter and a CEA-608/708 closed-caption encoder, inserter, and monitor.
