Ancillary Data within an SDI (Serial Digital Interface) is becoming more important to monitor to ensure carriage of the information through the facility. Ancillary Data can be used to provide information about the signal or carry additional associated data such as embedded audio, timecode, closed captioning or aspect ratio information. The DAT option of the waveform monitor allows the user to check for the presence of this ANC Data within the video signal using ANC Data Inspector. This video tutorial shows you step by step how to configure the ANC Data Display and how to use CaptureVu to analyze a captured full frame of video and identify the presence of the ANC Data types and their location within the video signal.
