​InSync Bring Motion Compensated Frame Rate Conversion With AWS

An API integration between InSync FrameFormer standards conversion software engine and AWS Elemental MediaConvert, transcoding provides on-demand motion compensated frame rate conversion.

As content owners increasingly look to automated content preparation services, FrameFormer’s integration with AWS Elemental MediaConvert allows them to deliver content at any desired video frame rate using motion compensation – the globally accepted approach for preserving the highest quality and delivering the smoothest motion video output. With the myriad standards needed to meet the needs of international content distribution, reliable on-demand frame rate conversion has become an essential service.

FrameFormer conversion can be added to any content preparation workflow under the control of AWS Elemental MediaConvert. It will typically be deployed to normalize content to the house standard or to localize content based on a required delivery standard. In either scenario, sequences of video frames will be passed to FrameFormer, where new output frames will be generated based on the application of InSync’s proven and established motion analysis and estimation algorithms.

“We are delighted to add high-quality motion compensated frame rate conversion through integration with AWS Elemental MediaConvert,” said James Shepherd, CTO, InSync Technology. “The InSync FrameFormer software engine is a great fit, as we require CPU-only resources – which provides the maximum flexibility and scalability that on-demand video services require.”

AWS Elemental MediaConvert customers will be able to select the InSync FrameFormer motion compensated frame rate conversion service as an add-on option at an added cost from within the AWS Elemental MediaConvert console without having to obtain a separate license.
