InSync Technology Debuts FrameFormer Live Standards Converter

FrameFormer Live is described as a highly scalable, professional grade software standards conversion solution that enables live real time conversion of SD, HD, and 3G content. It uses CPU only processing with cross platform support and can run on premises or in the cloud.

"Broadcasters and content owners continue to rely on proprietary hardware for cost effective, real time frame rate and format conversion for live applications," said InSync Technology CTO, James Shepherd. "Software solutions for live standards conversion are beginning to emerge, but they require expensive, dedicated compute resources with provision of GPUs, which is inflexible and can be costly. FrameFormer Live breaks that paradigm by offering live, software based standards conversion that can run on any suitable CPU devices."

FrameFormer Live does not require access to GPUs, giving users complete freedom to choose what server to run their conversions on or, in the case of cloud-based deployments, the flexibility to quickly scale the service up/down with the ready provision of CPU-only compute resources.
