InSync & Comprimato Partnership Delivers Seamless Frame Rate Conversion In Live IP Video Production

InSync Technology has partnered with leading software encoding specialist Comprimato to deliver standards conversion for live streaming applications. The agreement will see InSync’s FrameFormer motion compensating frame rate and format converter available within Comprimato’s Live Transcoder software.

The integrated solution has already been chosen by a major global broadcaster to support its live production services. The combined solution provides direct interface with their IP production workflows without the need to convert video to baseband SDI.

Live Transcoder uses uniquely powerful software, employing massive parallel processing in GPUs, and is built explicitly for streaming applications such as this. It is designed to provide multiple transcoding paths, to and from all the common codecs and containers, at resolutions up to 4k Ultra HD. FrameFormer enables an exceptional quality CPU-only standards conversion capability and supports any combination of resolution, scan-type, and frame rate, from established broadcast standards to formats generated by any equipment capable of capturing moving media. The combined solution is available on-prem and in the cloud, with flexible payment options.

Adding InSync's conversion technology inside Comprimato's encoder ensures the best possible image quality when de-interlacing and changing frame rates, allowing live sports video to be converted and streamed to viewers in appropriate local standards. By adding the FrameFormer conversion inside the transcoder there's no need for separate hardware or software processes which would add latency and complication to the workflow.
