Calibre UK launched its Fovea F1 broadcast grade motion estimated and motion compensated standards convertor at IBC, and signed a global distribution agreement with Imagine Communications.
Imagine will offer Fovea-F1, as well as forthcoming models, through its worldwide sales channels. Calibre’s Fovea — which was used at the FIFA World Cup for frame rate conversion for transmission to viewers in countries with 50Hz TV standards — has been updated to the new Fovea-F1 model with a new web browser interface including real-time status reporting.
Also, the existing ability to select different MEMC levels has been enhanced with presets. Pictured at IBC: Tim Brooksbank (left) with Imagine product manager Randy Conrod.
