InSync Technology has revealed that it is augmenting its FrameFormer Link software standards conversion engine with support for motion compensated frame rate conversion of live video streams.
The new FrameFormer Link Live tool kit can be integrated into any live production automation or workflow management platform through its open API and is able to support live conversion of all formats up to and including UHD/4K. It can be deployed on premises or in any cloud environment and requires CPU-only processing, which the company says is the optimum approach when instant availability of compute resources and scalability are key.
As broadcasters and service providers look to host more live event production and distribution in the cloud, FrameFormer Link Live is designed to fill one of the few remaining gaps in terms of the content processing chain.
Daryl Blair, marketing director of InSync Technology, commented: “We are bringing the unique ability to apply motion compensated frame rate conversion to live UHD streams in the cloud. This evolution of our popular FrameFormer software engine can be easily integrated into any customer, partner or service providers’ platform for the highest-quality conversions.”
InSync Technology is currently working with a number of SaaS partners and expects the first availability of a cloud-based integrated service for live motion compensated frame rate conversion this summer.
