Artek relies on FOR-A FRC-7000 HD frame rate converter

Arctek selected the FOR-A FRC-7000 HD frame-rate converter to perform conversions for a recent live broadcast of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship.

Arctek was contracted to provide a 1080/50i HD signal to Europe during the championship games and began looking for a frame-rate conversion solution during NAB2007.

When performing a conversion from 1080/60i to 1080/50i, artifacts, fragments or pieces of an image can appear. This happens because the converters are taking 60 images a second and changing the signal to match the 50 images per second frame rate. The FRC-7000 uses vector motion compensation processing to analyze and determine the pixel movement in each image frame to eliminate artifacts.

Additionally, the FRC-7000’s scene-cut detection automatically senses scene changes and turns off motion compensation processing so as to not affect the scenes before and after the frames being converted. A complete, new set of frames is then created in the required output standard.
