Imagine Communications’ Selenio™ Media Convergence Platform offers video conversion modules, enabling the integration of UHD-1 into an HD (High Definition) workflow or HD into a UHD-1 workflow.
The Selenio UHD Up and Down Converter, Frame Sync and Sony IP Live Modules are one-channel video conversion processors. Available as either an up converter processor, or a down converter processor, the addition of a software license option enables the addition of the other functions — offering more flexibility in any system design — or a UHD frame synchronizer, using quad link SDI.
The Selenio UHD up and down conversion modules feature 10-bit motion-adaptive processing to ensure that video conversion maintains the high quality for scaling, de-interlacing/interlacing and color (gamut) processing. The Selenio UHD up and down conversion modules also support the handling of embedded audio. When incorporated in the high-density Selenio MCP platform, this module is ideally suited for media companies as they roll out UHD TV to their customers.
As the transition to IP takes place, the SEL-1UHD3-SIPL-S module enables the addition of UHD-1/4K into the live production workflow, using Sony's Networked Media Interface (NMI) for fixed and mobile facilities. It is an HD and UHD-1 gateway module for use in hybrid single and quad-link SDI and 10GbE infrastructures using the IP Live mezzanine video format. Processing includes HD to UHD-1 and UHD-1 to HD video conversion with pass through, IP Live encoding/decoding, video and audio processing controls, and synchronization for non-synchronous signals.
