Vydeo Integrated Systems has released , its all-metal enclosure for the popular DV-to-SDI converter. The portable external converter provides connectivity to a PAL and/or NTSC DV video signal as input via 4-pin and/or 6-pin 1394 ports and automatically generates and outputs an SDI video signal through 75ohm BNC connectors, along with a separate 48KHz AES/EBU digital stereo audio signal. "This new enclosure is both rugged and cool. Clear, hard anodized aluminum was used throughout...Laser engraving was done instead of silk screen printing."
