All-In-One Converter with Scaler.

Key Features

All-In-One: Multi-format signal converter with scaler, up/down converting extensive range of graphics and video signals to designated signal format.
Flexible Output Configuration: HDMI/DVI/VGA/YPbPr/SDI output format of various timings fully compliant to VESA/SMPTE standard (output resolutions up to 1920×1200/60Hz and 2048×1080/24Hz respectively).
Multiview Capable: Simultaneous monitoring of two signals on one display; supports flexible scaling and layout adjustment, as well as PiP capability.
Optional Genlock: Genlock function with timing offsets to synchronize one or multiple Pacific C-AG (Pacific C-AG series with genlock support) to an external sync reference.



The Pacific C-A is an all-in-one video converter with scaler. Automatically detecting input formats, it enables signal conversion from HDMI/DVI/VGA/YPbPr and 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS to user-configurable HDMI/DVI/VGA/YPbPr/3G/HD/SD-SDI at various resolutions.

A compact, stand-alone converter, the Pacific C-A can be widely integrated into studio, broadcast and production operations. It supports image fine-tune, PiP display, and flexible audio breakaway switching all fully configurable via its front LCD panel. Featuring area-of-interest cropping, the Pacific C-A allows instant switching between two selected computer contents for conversion, ideally suited for conference and presentation environments.

Empowered Multiviewing

The Pacific C-A integrates multiviewing capability into video conversion, allowing two input sources with distinct video formats to be converted and simultaneously monitored on one display.
Both sources can be freely scaled and positioned, as well as overlaid to achieve PiP layout.
Controls can be done by front LCD panel and the software utility Phoenix-G’s user interface.

Downstream Keying

Designed to be easily implemented for post-production and broadcast applications, the Pacific C-A allows users to crop, scale and locate converted contents to be exactly positioned in the output. When outputting as SDI signal, Pacific C-A enables user to set a mono background color as the backdrop commonly used for downstream keyers in broadcast applications.
This allows graphics and contents created from computers to be easily converted and superimposed on top of existing video signal.

Area-of-Interest Crop and Pan

The Pacific C-A features area-of-interest cropping for contents of conversion.
The ScreenCrop Utility can automatically encompass an area-of-interest over a window or object within an application or on a web page (such as a YouTube video window) where the mouse cursor locates. This Windows utility program allows easy and quick selection of target contents to be converted (contents within the cropped area are automatically scaled to full-screen). Moreover, user can pan the cropped image to dynamically change the area-of-interest.

Area-of-Interest Crop and Pan – Two Instances Switch

The ScreenCrop Utility supports two areas of interest in cropping from a MS-Windows computer. This allows selection of two independent contents, such as PowerPoint presentations, media player video streams, and YouTube video windows, to be converted and presented interchangeably at any desired moment.

On-line Configuration for Multiple Converters

The Windows-based PacificConfig Utility provides an intuitive user interface for easy input selections (both main and PiP channel) and quick configuration of output resolutions and timing for Pacific C-A(G). Capable of controlling multiple Pacific converters under the same network, this utility helps users to control and manage more than 150 converters from one location.

Genlocking Multiple Converters (Optional)

Integrated frame synchronizer genlocks video sources of multiple Pacific C-AG converters to a reference sync.
With delay-line adjustment, Pacific C-AG ensures many downstream displays to be fully synchronized.
