​InSync Standards Converter for Imagine’s Zenium

Standards conversion vendor InSync Technology has debuted a motion compensated frame rate and format converter plug-in for Imagine Communications’ products.

FrameFormer from InSyncTechnology is described as a motion compensated standards converter which targets CPU-only deployment. FrameFormer can be deployed in the cloud and virtual machines, without the requirement for a GPU. The FrameFormer plug-in for Imagine’s Zenium product range enables broadcasters to add a frame rate conversion step into their media management workflow, which allows their system to automatically convert incoming media into their house standard.

"InSync Technology has a 13 year history of design and development of motion compensated standards converters", said Paola Hobson, Managing Director of InSync. "We've developed sophisticated proprietary processing which provides excellent quality frame rate conversion for a wide range of material. We're delighted to be able to offer this functionality to Zenium users".

Imagine's SelenioFlex File media processing solution, powered by Zenium, allows users to create custom workflows using graphical tools. “A huge advantage of Zenium is the range of plug-ins and options we offer to enable users to pick and choose exactly the functionality that they want", said Darren Gallipeau, director of Zenium at Imagine Communications. “The optional FrameFormer plug-in complements the rich array of processing components already available.”
