The FA-9100 also offers freely adjustable aspect ratio conversion and crossconversion between 1080i and 720p HD formats.

The company will also introduce expanded optional capabilities for its FRC-7000 HD frame rate converter. When the FRC-7000 debuted last year, it could convert between 1080/59.94i and 1080/50i, and between 720/59.94p and 720/50p frame rates in real time.
