For.A FRC-7000 overview

  • 1Description

The FRC-7000 Frame Rate Converter from For.A is a professional frame-rate converter that offers high-precision conversion using motion compensation technology and scene-cut detection. This unit can be used to realize frame-rate conversion with minimal juddering by detecting the motion vector of an object.

It can automatically detect rolling text superimposed on video, or alternatively, manual specifications can be set for this function. Other features include process control and genlock. Advanced audio support includes embedded audio, AES/EBU digital audio, and Dolby E encoding & decoding.

Frame Rate Conversion with Motion Compensation Processing
This device realizes frame rate conversion with minimal juddering by detecting the motion vector of an object and generating motion in the interpolated frame from amount of vector fluctuation in the frames before and after the clip.
Scene Cut Detection Function
Scene changes are automatically detected so that frame rate conversion is performed without using motion compensation processing on unrelated data for the frames before and after scene cuts.
Progressive Format Support
Improvements to motion estimation/compensation performance now enable smooth motion conversion even when converting from low frame rates to high frame rates such as from 1080/23.98PsF to 1080/59.94i (1080p/1080PsF format support requires the FRC-70PSFC option.) These improved functions provide better conversion accuracy even when converting between interlaced formats such as from 1080/59.94i to 1080/50i.
Conversion of Video with Subtitles
A function is available for converting video with imposed elements such as subtitles. Appropriate image processing is performed by specifying the corresponding area so that conversion is performed without harming the visibility of the subtitles.
AES/EBU Digital Audio Support
Installation of the optional FRC-70DA or FRC-70DA16 enables input of asynchronous/synchronous digital audio signals. This enables building of a flexible audio system by combining with stereo four-channel internal processing (sample rate conversion/individual delay adjustment function) and a remapping function.
Embedded Audio Support
Support is provided for 8-channel, 48KHz, 24-bit embedded audio signals. It also includes a delay function for synchronization with video processing. Conversion is possible without phases between the video and audio.
Dolby E and AC-3 Support
Adding the FRC-70D-D or FRC-70DE-E to the FRC-70DA or FRC-70DA16 option enables Dolby E data decoding/encoding and AC-3 decoding using only the FRC-7000. The FRC-70DA/70DA16 also includes a BB output terminal in synchronization with input and output SDI. Synchronous signals can be supplied to external Dolby E/AC-3 equipment. Even when users already have Dolby E decoder/encoder equipment, this allows significant simplification when building Dolby E systems, which tend to grow in complexity when performing rate conversion.
The video and audio signals in frame rate conversion are output in synchronization with synchronizing signals supplied internally or externally. Two independent input terminal channels are provided for synchronizing signals and tri-level sync or BB can be selected for input.
Process Control
Process control is possible for post-conversion video. The video level, chroma level, chroma phase, setup level, and clips can be adjusted to produce the optimum video.
Alarm Output
It includes alarm tally output for indicating power supply, fan, and temperature errors.
Test Signals
This unit includes a color bar, lamp signals, and 1KHz embedded audio output for signal checking.
