TWO Productions Wins Leitch New HD Converter Synchronizer

Mobile TV production unit TWO Productions recently won a raffle for a Leitch X75HD converter at the Alliance Productions 2005 Technology Conference.

Launched in January, the X75HD is a 1 RU up/down/cross converter and HD frame synchronizer and works in analog, digital or hybrid environments.

Video processing offers simultaneous up- and downconversion with aspect ration conversion for hybrid SD and HD facilities, level/color control, optional 3D adaptive color decoding with time base correction and optional noise reduction.

"We are very excited about the X75, as we feel it will give us some much needed compatibility in the analog/digital/HD world, now and in the future," said Russ Manning--operations manager for the Knoxville, Tenn.-based company--who held the winning ticket.
