Integrated 1080p and HD workflow for live programming
Channel A in Spain has made a deal with Channel S in Latin America to supply live HD coverage of live news events. Channel A upgrades production to 1080 50p but needs to maintain an excellent and uncompromised HD source to Channel S.
Using the downconversion capabilities of SV2000, channel A can continue to satisfy their international viewers with guaranteed quality in whatever format they require.
Channel B in USA realizes that it can gain in the Saturday night audience ratings by importing a new show which follows the fortunes of a group of British teenagers, in what has become a cult UK comedy series. The show is sourced in 1080 50i, but Channel B needs 1080 59i. Using the motion compensated frame rate conversion capabilities of MC1000, Channel B provide their Saturday night viewers with their new favorite show without viewers losing out on the quality of the presentation.
Multi-standard content distribution
UK broadcaster C receives HD content from a Canadian affiliate at 720 59p. Broadcaster C needs to supply various HD and SD feeds to clients in the UK at 50Hz. Using the quad channel LC4000, one incoming 59.94Hz feed can be converted to multiple outputs simultaneously, with great space efficiency.
As with all Snell products, the KudosPro range has been designed and engineered to the highest standards, with particular focus on ease of use.
