Alchemist Ph.C-HD has hand in post house’s winning contract
Snell & Wilcox's Alchemist Ph.C-HD motion-compensated standards converter was one of the catalyst's for an exclusive contract recently awarded to UK post house Brighton TV by HD DVD production and distribution company Opus Arte UK.
Purchased earlier this year by the UK's Royal Opera House, Opus Arte is known for its high-quality DVDs of opera, ballet and theatrical performances produced in HD.
The Alchemist Ph.C-HD is designed to produce converted HD outputs that are virtually indistinguishable from the original input. The system relies on Snell & Wilcox’s Ph.C motion measurement technology, which is optimized to prevent the motion-related artifacts commonly associated with standards conversion in HD video.
