InSync partners with Marquise Technologies on software standards conversion
InSync Technology and Marquise Technologies have announced the integration of the FrameFormer motion compensated frame rate conversion with the MIST Mastering solution.
MIST (Media Ingest Stream Transcode) can be used to create various types of master or file package from any type and resolution of source media.
It is applicable from RAW data to final delivery and provides transcoding for multiple formats, editing and conforming tools, and colour grading and colour management features for workflows including HDR and ACES.
According to the company, MIST is “renowned for its proficiency in IMF mastering, with the industry’s broadest support of IMF applications [and is] the tool of choice for creating DCPs, broadcast and web deliveries.”
Integration with InSync’s FrameFormer motion compensated standards conversion into MIST further enhances the toolset available in the content workflow, it added.
Frame rate conversion is an essential requirement for any content owner wanting to monetise material domestically and internationally.
Footage shot at 23.98 hertz must be converted to 50 hertz and 59 hertz for TV distribution. Frame rate conversion is also necessary when there’s a need to integrate mixed frame rate footage into a production, such as when content turns up unexpectedly at the wrong frame rate for the project. A high-quality motion compensated standards converter is the only solution for these applications.
FrameFormer from InSync Technology is a motion compensated standards converter that offers frame rate conversion, including cadence management, for all types of content from sub-QCIF up to 8K and beyond.
It has been designed to provide reliable conversions with automated settings, enabling fast deployment without lengthy parameter setup.
“InSync Technology is delighted to have the opportunity to integrate high-quality frame rate conversion into an industry-leading mastering product,” said managing director of InSync Technology Paola Hobson.
“We are thrilled that FrameFormer can now be offered within Marquise Technologies’ state-of-the-art solutions for digital cinema, broadcast and OTT applications.”
Laurence Stoll, chief executive, Marquise Technologies, added, “Frame rate conversion is a key element in mastering, and we wanted to offer our customers the best possible quality and flexibility for their deliverables. The collaboration with InSync and the integration of FrameFormer into MIST provides them with renowned excellence and enriches the capabilities of our solutions.”
