Introduction

About this Manual

This manual contains information about the Extron

YCS 100 Transcoder, and discusses how to install, configure, and operate it.

The terms “YCS 100,” “YCS,” and “transcoder” are used interchangeably throughout this manual.

About the YCS 100

The Extron YCS 100 Transcoder has a composite video to S-video (luminance [Y] and chrominance [C]) decoder and an S-video to composite video encoder in one product. The high performance digital decoder has a time base stabilizer that corrects the jitter from VCR signals. A 5-line adaptive comb filter performs the Y/C separation, virtually eliminating chroma noise. Each input has its own individually buffered loopthrough signal.

The transcoder is compatible with NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43,

SECAM, and PAL standards.

Features

Digital decoding and analog encoding — The YCS 100 digitally decodes (separates) the composite video input signal

into Y and C for S-video. It provides analog encoding (combining) of the Y and C signals of S-video input into composite video.

Time base stabilizer — The time base stabilizer (TBS) stabilizes the video signal in the time domain. This results in a significantly more stable image on the screen and better recording quality from input sources with unstable video signals, such as consumer VCRs and worn or multigeneration VHS tapes.

Input connectors — The decoder has one composite video input on a female BNC connector. The decoder input is buffered and looped through, also on a female BNC connector.

The encoder has one S-video input on 4-pin mini DIN connectors. The encoder input is buffered and looped through, also on a 4-pin mini DIN connector.

Output connectors — The decoder has one S-video output on a 4-pin mini DIN connector. The encoder has one composite video output on a BNC connector.

Quad standard compatibility — The digital quad standard decoder and encoder provide for universal compatibility.

Enclosure — The YCS 100 has a compact 1U high, ¼-rack wide, 3 inches deep Versatools® metal enclosure that can be easily placed or mounted in a variety of locations.

Power supply — An external 12 VDC power supply with a two-pin captive screw connector accepts 100 to 240 VAC. The power supply input has single diode polarity protection.

Rack, furniture, and projector mounting — The YCS 100 can be mounted on a rack shelf, under a desk or podium, or on a projector pole, with an optional mounting kit.

Figure 2-11 — YCS 100 rear panel

The YCS 100 rear panel contains the following features:

1Input composite video connector (decoder) — Connect a composite video input source to this BNC connector.

2Input S-video connector (encoder) — Connect an S-video input source to this 4-pin mini-DIN connector.

3S-video loop-through connector (encoder) — Connect a monitor or other deviceto this 4-pin mini-DIN loop-through connector.

4Composite video output connector (encoder) — Connect a composite video display device to this BNC connector.

5S-video output connector (decoder) — Connect an S-video display device to this female 4-pin mini-DIN connector.

6Composite video loop-through connector (decoder) — Connect a monitor or other device to this BNC loop-through connector.

7Power connector — Plug the external 12 VDC power supply into this 2-pin, 3.5 mm captive screw connector.

Wiring the Power Connector

To wire the connector for the external power supply,

1.

Cut the DC output cord to the length needed.

2.

Strip the jacket to expose 0.2 inches (5 mm) of the

 

conductors.

CExposing more than 0.2" (5 mm) of the copper wires could allow the stripped wires to touch each other, causing a short circuit. This could result in the external DC power supply overheating and/or burning.

Stripping the wires to expose less than the recommended amount may cause them to slide out of the connector too easily, even if they are tightly pinched by the captive screws.

3.

Slide the leads into the supplied 2-pin captive screw plug

 

and secure them, using an Extron Tweeker or other small

 

screwdriver.

4.

Use the supplied tie wrap to strap the power cord to the

 

extended tail of the connector.

5.

To verify the power cord’s polarity before connecting

 

it, plug in the power supply with no load and check the

 

output with a voltmeter.

Figure 2-12 shows how to wire the connector.

NYour YCS may have been shipped with a blue captive screw connector. This blue connector can be plugged into either a blue or an orange power receptacle.

The blue connector does not have the extended tail or the included tie-wrap.

CDo not tin the stripped power supply leads before attaching the captive screw plug to them. Tinned wires are not as secure in the captive screw connectors and can be easily pulled out. They may also break after being bent several times.

VIDEO DECODER/ENCODER

Figure 2-13 — YCS 100 front panel

The YCS 100 front panel contains the following:

1Power LED indicator — This green LED lights when the YCS 100 is receiving power.

Operation

When the transcoder, input sources, and display devices are powered up, the system is fully operational. During YCS 100 operation, one or both of the following takes place:

The YCS 100 digital decoder accepts a composite video signal and separates it into Y (luma) and C (chroma), converting the signal to output S-video, while also passing an unconverted signal to a composite video monitor attached to the video loop-through BNC connector.

The YCS 100 analog encoder accepts an S-video signal and converts it to composite video while also passing an unconverted signal to an S-video monitor connected to the S-video mini DIN loop-through connector.

If problems are encountered, ensure that all cables are routed and connected properly.

Troubleshooting

Possible problems and their solutions include the following:

Problem: No power at unit

Solution: Verify that the unit is receiving power by checking the front panel LED. If the LED is not lit, check the DC power plug termination and polarity.

Problem: No video input

Solution: Verify that the source and output devices are powered on and connected properly.

Problem: Black and white image flashes or scrolls rapidly

Cause: When a black and white signal is used without a colorburst signal, the output image may not sync correctly, causing continual flashing and rapid scrolling of the black and white image.

Solution: Close (enable) the jumper located at CR8 on the YCS 100 internal board. This corrects the black and white picture settings for NTSC and PAL standards.

NWhen you are not using a black and white signal, set the jumper back to the open position (the default).

Follow these steps to enable the jumper:

1.

Disconnect all power to the YCS and any attached devices.

 

If the YCS is mounted, remove it from its mounting.

2.

Remove the YCS cover by removing the two screws on

 

each side and lifting the cover up and off.

Lift cover straight up.

Remove (4) screws from sides.
