Snell & Wilcox to showcase Alchemist Ph.C-HD TX
Snell & Wilcox will feature its new Alchemist Ph.C-HD TX motion-compensated frame-rate standards converter for teleports, earth stations and telcos at IBC2008.
By providing simultaneous SD and HD conversion in one compact 3RU mainframe, the Alchemist Ph.C-HD TX enables facilities to enter the international HD program exchange market.
The Alchemist Ph.C-HD TX leverages Snell & Wilcox's proprietary Ph.C motion compensation technology to provide transparent, HD frame-rate conversion between 50Hz and 60Hz HD standards for both 1080i and 720p formats as well as SD frame-rate conversion between 50Hz and 60Hz material.
The Alchemist Ph.C-HD TX can be set up and configured easily and requires no control adjustment during use.
