InSync Technology and Marquise Technologies today announced the integration of FrameFormer motion compensated frame rate conversion into the industry-leading MIST Mastering solution.
MIST revolutionises the mastering process by offering unrivaled features for creating any type of master or file package from any type and resolution of source media within a single software solution. From the RAW data to the final delivery, MIST provides transcoding for multiple formats, extensive editing and conforming tools, and advanced color grading and color management features for workflows including HDR and ACES.
Renowned for its proficiency in IMF mastering, with the industry’s broadest support of IMF applications, MIST is also the tool of choice for creating DCPs, broadcast and web deliveries. Integration of InSync’s FrameFormer motion compensated standards conversion into MIST further enhances the toolset available in the content workflow.
Frame rate conversion is an essential requirement for any content owner wanting to monetize its material domestically and internationally. Footage shot at 23.98 hertz must be converted to 50 hertz and 59 hertz for TV distribution. Frame rate conversion is also necessary when there’s a need to integrate mixed frame rate footage into a production, such as when content turns up unexpectedly at the wrong frame rate for the project. A high-quality motion compensated standards converter is the only solution for these applications.
FrameFormer from InSync Technology is a high-quality motion compensated standards converter that offers frame rate conversion, including cadence management, for all types of content from sub-QCIF up to 8K and beyond. FrameFormer has been carefully designed and finely tuned over many years to provide reliable conversions with automated settings, enabling fast deployment without lengthy parameter setup.
“InSync Technology is delighted to have the opportunity to integrate high-quality frame rate conversion into an industry-leading mastering product,” said Managing Director of InSync Technology Paola Hobson. “We are thrilled that FrameFormer can now be offered within Marquise Technologies’ state-of-the-art solutions for digital cinema, broadcast and OTT applications.”
“Frame rate conversion is a key element in mastering, and we wanted to offer our customers the best possible quality and flexibility for their deliverables. The collaboration with InSync and the integration of FrameFormer into MIST provides them with renowned excellence and enriches the capabilities of our solutions,” said Laurence Stoll, CEO of Marquise Technologies.
