Galaxy Light & Power uses FOR-A frame-rate converter

August 20, 2007

Galaxy Light & Power, a London-based media production facility, has purchased a FOR-A FRC-7000 HD frame-rate converter to support its live broadcast, post-production and mastering projects.

The facility offers production resources for HD, motion pictures and television including equipment rental and standards conversion, transfers and technical production management.

The company selected the FOR-A FRC-7000 for its ability to handle both interlaced and progressive material during a recent live broadcast of the “Concert for Diana.” Two FRC-7000s were used to feed a clean host broadcaster signal and an NBC-switched version of the concert via satellite to New York for distribution to North America.

While all of the live performances were shot in 1080/25i interlaced, portions of the concert such as the insert films were made in the 1080/25PsF progressive format. The facility said conversions between those formats was flawless.

The unit converts cleanly between 23.98PsF or 24PsF to 25PsF and from 23.98 to 29.97 without using the 3:2 pulldown process. For the first time, the facility was able to transfer its feature

films at 23.98fps into the NTSC or 29.97i HD environment without 3:2 pulldown artifacts.

The FRC-7000 was also cited for its audio capability, which allows the passing of Dolby E encoded signals. With many live music and sports events being made available in Dolby 5.1, together with it being the audio standard for the mastering of DVD/HD-DVD/BD, this saves time and avoids peripheral audio processing.
