Barco's FSN3G 1802 is an FSN-1400 Video Processing Chassis bundled with I/O modules. Modules included in the 1802 configuration include a Native Input Card (NIC), five Universal Input Cards (UIC), two 2-D Digital Video Effects (2D-DVE) cards, a Multiviewer (MVR) card, one Universal Output Card (UOC), and one Native Aux Output Card (NAC). If you require an alternative setup using other modules, the included modules can be hot-swapped, reducing down-time. All the video processing is accomplished inside the FSN-1400 unit in real time, so there is no need for external processing hardware or software. When combined with a separately available control interface, the FSN3G 1802 becomes the centerpiece of a complete video switching solution.

Native Input Card (NIC) The Native Input Card accepts up to eight SD/HD/3G SDI signals. Since there are no scalers on the NIC, all connected inputs must be set to the native resolution of the FSN.


The NIC provides frame synchronization for all inputs with a jitter window of ±0.5 lines per input channel. From the system's touch screen menu, you can monitor the input video timing and lock status.

In addition to frame synchronization, the NIC provides the following video processing features on a per-input channel basis:

  • Hue and saturation adjustment
  • Independent RGB contrast and brightness adjustment
  • Horizontal and vertical mask adjustment
  • Freeze
  • Output black on LOS (Loss Of Signal)
  • Color gamma correction
  • Input configuration files saved on per-connector basis
Universal Input Card (UIC) The Universal Input Card is a high performance dual-channel scaling processor that accepts a wide range of video and computer signals, and converts them to the switcher's native format. Each channel operates independently.


Each channel accepts analog RGBHV/RGBS/RGsB, YPbPr video, S-video, Composite input signals on HD-15 connectors, DVI digital signals on DVI-I connectors and SD/HD/3G video on BNC connectors.

A custom algorithm allows each channel to automatically and rapidly lock to the selected input video source. For genlocked sources, the delay through each scaling channel is one frame.

In addition, the UIC provides the following video processing features per input channel:

  • Freeze
  • Input size and position adjustments
  • Brightness and contrast adjustment
  • Hue, saturation
  • Independent RGB contrast and brightness adjustment
  • Gamma adjustmenst
  • Scaler sharpness control
  • Powerful de-interlacing modes:
    • Motion adaptive
    • Field to frame (for low latency)
    • pSF (Frame-to-Frame)
    • 3:2 (NTSC) and 2:2 (PAL) pull-down detection
  • 12-bit processing
  • Output black on LOS (loss of signal) or invalid signal
  • Input configuration files saved on per-connector basis
  • Flicker filter
2D Digital Video Effects Card (2D-DVE) The 2D-DVE card allows you to create PIPS from any source. A wide variety of effects are offered, including sizing, positioning, cropping, and programmable borders and shadows. All inputs and outputs signals to the DVE card are internal to the chassis, and no external connections or rear I/O connector card is required. Multiviewer Card (MVR) The Multiviewer card provides a fully integrated monitoring solution, eliminating the need for multiple monitors and signal distribution, simplifying your system's operation and reducing the overall operating cost. The Multiviewer enables you to monitor up to 16 video signals, comprised of any input source, any program, preview or clean feed output, and any Aux bus output.


In addition to video sources, the Multiviewer can also display a real-time-clock (RTC) or timecode from the MVR card's LTC input connector.

The Multiviewer operates in either single or dual monitor modes. In single mode, up to 16 PIPs can be displayed on a single monitor. In dual mode, the 16 PIPs are distributed between two DVI-D and HD-SDI monitor outputs. Over 20 different layouts are available, designed to fit any monitoring requirement.

Once a layout is selected, you can customize the text, background, border and UMD color. Any PIP can be turned off, and the overall layout's background color, border color, and UMD (Under Monitor Display) color are all variable. The Multiviewer provides standard red/green tally within the UMD, and PIP borders automatically turn red to indicate loss-of-signal (LOS) or cyan when the corresponding input source is frozen. Just like all FSN cards, the Multiviewer card is hot-swappable, allowing for quick and easy extraction and insertion, without disturbing the system operation.

Universal Output Card (UOC) The Universal Output Card is a high performance dual channel scaler card that enables the FSN to output DVI, Analog or SMPTE 3G/HD/SDI signals, independent of the switcher's native video format.


Inputs to the UOC are internal, simplifying system setup and wiring. When the system's UOC capability is combined with its UIC capability, FSN effectively operates as a multi-channel "anything in, anything out" system.

In the bottom diagram, several sources at different formats and resolutions are connected to FSN. In this example, which uses three UOCs, the FSN outputs six different signals at different formats and resolutions.

You can select the output format for each channel via the UOC setup menu, and all standard analog, DVI and SDI formats are available. In addition to standard formats, you can also output custom resolutions and timings, thus further enhancing the system's "anything in, anything out" flexibility.

The UOC outputs can vertically genlock to the system's internal sync, or free-run. For vertically locked outputs, the frame delay is one or two (user selectable) interlaced fields for interlaced native outputs, or one progressive frame for native progressive outputs.

The UOC also offers additional effects:

  • Pan and zoom
  • Brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and gamma correction
  • Internal test pattern
Native Aux Output Card (NAC) The Native AUX Output Card (NAC) provides eight SD/HD/3G SDI outputs, in addition to the six native AUX outputs on the M/E card.


Using the Aux section on the control panel or the Aux Menu, any FSN output or any signal from the internal crosspoint matrix can be assigned to any NAC AUX output.
