Model Details

The MPU-F100A provides frame synchronization capability, accepting a variety of video playback sources such as ProMavica recorders/players, VTRs, and video disc players. It also absorbs jitter and skew errors, working as a time base corrector.In combination with a ProMavica recorder/player it provides jitter-free pictures with a smooth transition from one picture to another. Further, by using the MPU-F100A, some simple picture effects such as mosaic, posterization, and multi-picture are available.


  • Frame synchronization
  • Simple connection with ProMavica player and recorders
  • Multiple inputs/outputs
  • Picture effects
  • External Genlock capability
  • Noise reduction
  • RS-232C interface
  • Still Video Control
  • Video Signal Control
  • The MPU-F100 accepts asynchronous video signals, locks them with the house sync and outputs synchronous video signals. It also provides time base error correction to eliminate skew errors and jitter. These functions enable video playback sources including ProMavica recorders/players to be used in various video systems such as computer graphics, CATV, POP and POI operations.
  • ProMavica recorders/players show video signal muting during the transition of the head movement from one picture to another. The MPU-F100 eliminates this phenomenon by storing a picture in the frame memory. Also, using the LAP DISSOLVE function, one picture can switch over to another with 1.2 second of transition time. The MPU-F100 and a ProMavica recorder/player should be connected via an optional interface cable, IFC-100 (2m).
  • In combination with a ProMavica recorder/player, three kinds of still video control modes are available.ON mode: The MPU-F100 freezes a picture automatically when the ProMavica deck goes into playback mode. Also, when the deck plays back a different track, the MPU-F100 freezes a new picture.OFF mode: There is no functional relation between the ProMavica deck and the MPU-F100.TIMER STOP mode: The ProMavica deck goes into the stop mode after continuously playing back the same picture for ten minutes, without track change. After the deck is in the stop mode, the frozen picture remains.
  • The MPU-F100 can input and output composite video, component video (RGB or Y/R-Y/B-Y selectable) and Y/C separate video signals. It acts as a perfect transcoder.
  • Simple picture effects of MOSAIC, POSTERIZATION and MULTI-PICTURE (3 x 3) are provided by using a frame memory.
  • The MPU-F100 is equipped with an external Genlock input connector for composite video or black burst input.
  • The MPU-F100 can control hue and color level of the composite and Y/C separate video signals, and video level and setup level of the input signals.
  • The noise reduction circuit for still pictures is equipped, providing four steps of noise reduction levels.
  • The RS-232C interface is employed for an external computer control.
