J SPORTS Broadcasting chooses FOR-A for 2007 Rugby World Cup

Japanese sports broadcaster J SPORTS Broadcasting selected FOR-A frame rate converters, signal processors and switchers to transmit coverage of the 2007 Rugby World Cup to viewers in Japan.

J SPORTS used the FRC-7000 HD frame rate converter, FA-9000 HD/SD signal processor and HVS-600HS HANABI 1 M/E HD/SD switcher from FOR-A as well as the Fujitsu IP-9500 HD video encoder/decoder for the Sept. 7- Oct. 20 event from France. All 48 matches were broadcast to Japan using H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) compression.

The FRC-7000 frame rate converter was used to convert locally produced 1080/50i material to 1080/59.94i — the broadcast format in Japan.
