For.A FRC-30 Overview

The FRC-30 HD/SD Frame Rate Converter from For-A is a 1-RU high, half-RU wide frame rate converter unit capable of both motion compensation and linear conversions. The converter achieves excellent levels of conversion regardless of video content. The converter offers up/down/cross conversions and supports HD/SD-SDI and analog composite signals. Also, the motion compensation mode and linear conversion mode are switchable.


Motion compensation mode detects the motion vector amount of a moving object and generates the object's motion in frames
Linear conversion mode offers frame conversion based on previous and next frames
Supports 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/23.98PsF, 720/59.94p, 720/50p, 525/60, 625/50 inputs, and frame rate conversions
