Campbell, Calif., Mar. 26, 2002 -- FOCUS Enhancements, Inc. today introduced the Pro AV 1280, the latest addition to the FOCUS professional line of PC-to-TV scan converters. The Pro AV 1280 accepts high resolution computer images (up to and including 1280 x 1024) and converts them to TV video for recording, displaying, broadcasting or transmitting across a videoconferencing link. The ProAV 1280 is expected to be available in April and will be on display in the FOCUS booth S6118 at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Convention in Las Vegas, April 8-11.

"The robust feature set and competitive price point of the ProAV 1280 raises the bar for high resolution computer conversion applications such as training, presentation, broadcast, and videoconferencing," said Jason Overhulse, Product Manager for FOCUS Enhancements. "It is a great addition to our Pro AV family of scan converters."

The Pro AV 1280 is available in two versions: a standard 19" rackmount and a desktop configuration. Both models utilize FOCUS Enhancements' patented 2D Auto Flicker Filter technology that reads the video pixels horizontally and vertically and adaptively sharpens the video image for fine font point content. Users can set the flicker filter to toggle through seven application specific settings. Control over all adjustments can be made easily from the backlit keypad controls, the optional IR remote control, or the RS232/422 interface. The Pro AV 1280 models have broadcast compatible NTSC or PAL outputs. The Genlock input accepts a black burst signal and provides separate adjustable delays and subcarrier phase. All models are capable of converting inputs from any computer to broadcast quality composite, Y/C, and component video signals.
