The MCC-4K Motion-Compensated Converter from For.A provides frame rate and format conversion for UHD/3G/HD signals. It features quad link 3G-SDI of Two-Sample Interleaved (2SI) or Square Division (SQD) format, a single link 12G/6G-SDI, and SFP connectivity options. The converter supports motion-compensated conversion from any 3G/HD-SDI frame rate to any other 3G/HD-SDI frame rate, as well as up-conversion from 3G/HD to UHD and down-conversion UHD to 3G/HD.

The converter supports motion-compensated conversion from any UHD frame rate to any other UHD frame rate (4K to 4K), with simultaneous UHD single link 12G/6G and UHD quad link 3G-SDI outputs. It also supports automatic detection of SMPTE ST425-5 (sample interleave input) and ITU-R BT.2020 colorimetry. The converter supports all frame rates from 23.98 to 60p, including interlaced and PsF formats.

The converter supports 16 channels of embedded PCM audio with delay matched to the video delay. It comes with simple tools for audio channel remapping, synchronization, and delay. The converter features an intuitive front panel for easy control and a video screen for confidence monitoring, with individual quadrants for square division output. In addition, remote control operation is also offered via a clearly laid-out browser interface.


Live UHD Frame Rate Conversion

The MCC-4K converter can be used for live UHD frame rate conversion applications where UHD content sourced at a chosen production frame rate needs to be converted to other frame rates for international contribution and distribution.

HD/3G to UHD Up-Conversion

The converter can be used for integrating HD and 3G content into UHD programming. Benefiting from the aperture control for up-conversion with enhancement features, the MCC-4K transforms 3G/HD content into UHD output, offering simultaneous 4K single link 12G/6G and 4K quad link (2SI and SQD).

UHD to HD/3G Down-Conversion

Simultaneous transmissions in UHD and HD can be easily achieved with the MCC-4K converter. You can configure UHD as input and choose the required HD standard output. The ITU-R BT.2020 to ITU-R BT.709 conversion is available as an option, as well as the process amplifier and RGB color corrector.

HD to HD Frame Rate Conversion

The MCC-4K converter also operates as an 3G/HD motion-compensated standards converter, allowing its rapid redeployment for all conversion applications. Availability of loop-through reference input with genlock phase control, and timecode conversions make the MCC-4K ideal for demanding live production environments.
