Featured products

Alchemist OD 
When they need format and frame rate conversion, your clients will only accept the very best quality for their valuable content. Engineered around your post production needs, Alchemist OD delivers picture perfect image quality all the way from a mobile device to a 4K screen. It prevents the needs for multiple transfers of the same assets and minimizes manual intervention, which enables you to turn work around fast.

Every element of Alchemist OD is optimized for outstanding performance and epic scalability, from the intuitive user interface and integrated browser to the profile creation tool and watch folder.

You can now deploy Alchemist OD on your chosen commodity IT and utilize the power of GPUs to repurpose any content with confidence.

 

Quasar OD 

Quasar OD provides consistent high quality pictures for up, down and cross conversions giving broadcasters the competitive edge, and content owners the piece of mind that their valued content is being enjoyed the way they intended.

Low quality format conversion can introduce unwanted artefacts such as jaggies and tearing, and suffer from loss of vertical resolution on both static and moving regions. Quasar OD eliminates such artefacts by using its intelligent adaptive motion processing and carefully optimized filters to provide the ultimate image quality for all types of content.

Designed as an integral part of the Snell On Demand framework, Quasar OD can be deployed on your chosen commodity IT, scaling from the smallest installation to multi-licence systems allowing them to evolve their installation around their needs.  

 

KudosPro 
A broadcast quality conversion range at a price point that may surprise you, providing a conversion solution whatever your requirements.  Motion compensated or linear frame rate conversion and format conversion, KudosPro can offer processing of up to 4 independent channels of video conversion per rack unit - higher density than any other broadcast conversion product.

Now Available
The new KudosPro-IQ variant allows you to extend the capabilities of KudosPro by adding up to two IQ modules.

 

Alchemist Ph.C-HD

The World renowned Alchemist standards converter, now in it's 6th generation - still providing the best conversion quality available.

Now supporting 3Gbps 1080p, Film processing, Dolby E, Timecode and even file based conversions - Alchemist Ph.C-HD is still at the top of it's game.

 

IQ Modular Conversion
We also have a range of conversion products within our IQ modular range. For a cost effective and high density solution, affording functionality such as Aspect Ratio Conversion, Up - Down - Cross conversion and synchronization, check out our full IQ modular range

Frame rate standards conversion
For premium, high end material, where image quality is paramount and particularly where the content is dynamic with fast motion, choose Alchemist Ph.C-HD or Alchemist Ph.C-HD LIVE.

 

 

 

For premium file based conversions, Alchemist OD combines award-winning image processing capability with commodity IT to deliver unrivalled format and frame rate conversion at a fraction of the cost of a hardware-based alternative.

 

 

 

Where the material is less challenging, with lower motion speeds but still dynamic, you need KudosPro MC1000 or MC2000 - depending on whether you need one channel of conversion or two.

 

 

 

A lower cost option is linear conversion - really only suitable where motion speeds are low.  Our KudosPro LC2000 and LC4000 products provide two or four channels of linear conversion in 1RU.

 

 

Up-Down-Cross conversion and synchronization
For high quality file based format conversions, Quasar OD delivers stunning pictures for all interlaced and progressive content. It combines Snell’s award winning intelligent adaptive de-interlacing technology and carefully optimized scaling apertures to ensure each and every frame of video delivers the maximum possible resolution.

 

 

For up, down and cross conversion applications, where the input and output frame rate are the same, you need KudosPro SV2000 or SV4000, which provide two or four channels of conversion in 1RU.

 

 

 

For premium quality, motion compensated up conversion, use Quasar Ph.C for the highest quality HD images from SD sources.
