VertigoXmedia CG adds HD/SD cross-conversion

VertigoXmedia is integrating up- and down-conversion into its VertigoXG character generator.

The company has announced a field upgrade for its VertigoXG character generator that features a built-in standards conversion. The new VxScaler module provides high-quality upconversion and downconversion, allowing for simultaneous HD/SD output from a single box.

The VertigoXG provides graphics rendering and playback in HD in a single- or dual-channel configuration. Authoring is performed in Xstudio.

The new VxScaler module uses a three-step process that includes motion estimation, de-interlacing, and scaling -- all performed at 10-bit YUV 4:2:2. With VxScaler installed, the VertigoXG can downconvert an HD source to SD, upconvert SD to HD, capture an SD source as an HD clip for inclusion in an HD project, and capture an HD source as a clip in SD or a different standard.
