At IBC2019 in Amsterdam, InSync Technology will introduce FrameFormer Live, a highly scalable, professional grade software standards conversion solution that enables live real time conversion of SD, HD, and 3G content using CPU only processing with cross platform support. FrameFormer Live can run in any standard IT environment, on premises or in the cloud, and can be accessed as a stand alone application or an integrated service.
“Broadcasters and content owners continue to rely on proprietary hardware for cost effective, real time frame rate and format conversion for live applications,” said InSync Technology Chief Technology Officer James Shepherd. “Software solutions for live standards conversion are beginning to emerge, but they require expensive, dedicated compute resources with provision of GPUs, which is inflexible and can be costly. FrameFormer Live breaks that paradigm by offering live, software based standards conversion that can run on any suitable CPU devices.”
Unlike other solutions, FrameFormer Live does not require access to GPUs, giving users complete freedom to choose what server to run their conversions on or, in the case of cloud-based deployments, the flexibility to quickly scale the service up/down with the ready provision of CPU-only compute resources.
FrameFormer Live opens up new possibilities for workflow efficiencies for broadcasters and content owners of all sizes and scales. Building on InSync Technology’s 16 years of experience in video and signal processing research and product development, FrameFormer Live uses a suite of highly efficient, proprietary motion compensated processing tools to achieve consistently high quality conversion for any originating size, frame rate, and aspect ratio.
InSync Technology will provide demos of FrameFormer Live at IBC2019 (Stand 2.A46), Sept. 13-17 in Amsterdam.
