FOR-A introduces new noise eraser

FOR-A will introduce the DNE-2, a real-time video noise eraser, at NAB2008 (booth #SU5220). The unit incorporates the company’s motion compensation technology, which is used to remove only the noise-filled signals, without harming the quality of the original video.

The DNE-2 Noise Eraser uses the same motion compensation technology found in the company’s FRC-7000 frame rate converter to provide accurate data replacement. In noise removal, information within a video is deleted and replaced with different information. In other noise reducers, the replaced information is less accurate, leading to blurred contours and details in the image. The DNE-2 also features process control, color correction, a detail enhancer and audio delay.

Hiro Tanoue, FOR-A’s deputy general manager for overseas operations, said the company named the DNE-2 a noise “eraser” because of this data replacement accuracy. The “2” in the DNE-2 model name represents the two filter functions that are used in the product — one to remove grain noise and one to remove dust noise.

The DNE-2 removes grain and dust noise from video that’s been converted from film to video. It supports HD-SDI input and output and all of the most common formats, including 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/24p, 1080/24psf, 1080/23.98p, 1080/23.98psf, 720/59.94p and 720/50p.

With 1080i format material, progressive conversion inside the DNE-2 occurs with video converted via pulldown, enabling noise removal with an appropriate frame rate.

In addition to noise removal for telecine video, the DNE-2 can also be used for improving S/N level, removing noise caused during image compression and as a preprocessor for producing package media such as DVDs.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
