VIN338 Airport (EOL)

EOL: Warning. This product has reached its end of life. Although we continue to supply it at this time, we do not recommend it for new monitor and display projects. Please contact us for more information!


The VIN338 Airport is a highly integrated card that interfaces digital DVI, RGB and video inputs in virtually any format with a display. It is optimized for high-performance, value line, flat-panel monitors in critical Video information applications (airport, railway, banking, etc.).

The VIN338 Airport features the latest generation of image processor with internal HDMI, 10-bit ADC, video decoder and an external memory interface to support more advanced windowing capabilities and high-resolution displays.

Features include full 10-bit data processing, high-quality motion-adaptive deinterlacing up to 1080i with advanced low-angle processing, frame-rate conversion, Picture-in-Picture (PIP), Picture-off-Picture (POP), and advanced high-quality scaling. In addition, the image processor offers programmable PixelBoost™ technology, advanced 3D noise reduction and a 3D comb filter to support the built-in video decoder, and has innovative self-diagnostic capabilities with the ability to communicate its status via RS232/485.

Computer, VGA to WUXGA (1920X1200), video images can be scaled to fit a target display device with any resolution, up to WUXGA.

Optimisation circuits enable the creation of sharp and clear images, centred on the screen, without user intervention.

VIN338 Airport supports NTSC, PAL, SECAM, RGB - Y/Cb, Cr video data with a 4:3 aspect ratio and 16:9 aspect ratio sources, such as DVD or HDTV.

Using VIN338 Airport increases monitor reliability and drastically reduces downtime.
