InSync Technology, Comprimato partner on frame rate conversions for live productions

InSync’s FrameFormer motion compensating frame rate and format converter is now available within Comprimato’s Live Transcoder software

InSync Technology is working with 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 combined solution provides direct interface with their IP production workflows without the need to convert video to baseband SDI, said the companies. It is available for both on-premise and in the cloud workflows.

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, added the companies.

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.

Speaking about the partnership, InSync Technology’s managing director, James Taylor, said: “We are pleased to join forces with Comprimato, a company highly respected for its skill and expertise in the world of JPEG2000 processing in live and movie environments, and bring our FrameFormer format conversion capability to a new segment of the market.

“Together with Comprimato we have created a compelling solution that delivers the highest levels of picture quality in multiple formats for live streaming environments and offers complete flexibility to deploy on-premise or in the cloud.”

The technology is already being employed by a major sports broadcaster.
