FOR-A AND INSYNC TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCE 8K SYNCHRONIZER
Two new products, an 8K-supporting upconverter and 8K-supporting frame synchronizer made their worldwide introduction at Inter BEE 2018. Developed by InSync Technology Products Ltd. – an advanced research joint venture between InSync Technology, experts in software motion compensated standards conversion, and FOR-A, leading worldwide developers of video technology – the upconverter and frame synchronizer are both available globally from FOR-A.
InSync Technology Products Ltd was formed in August of 2017 to aid collaboration between UK and Japan in the design and development of 8K UHDTV signal processing equipment to support current and future international program distribution.
The new InSync IF8K-UCN is a frame synchronizer that supports up conversion of HD/4K UHD to 8K DG (Dual Green). It inputs HD-SDI or quad-link 3G-SDI (3G-SDI x 4) and outputs octa-link 3G-SDI (3G-SDI x 8) signals. Two-way distribution of 8K DG is standard and BB or Tri-level sync reference input is also supported. Standard redundant power supply provides stability and long-term usage. Supporting frame rates are 59.94i or 60i for HD and 59.94p and 60p for 4H UHD. There is no frame rate conversion. ITU-R BT.709 or ITU-R BT.2020 color gamut can be selected for the input. Its’ output supports ITU-R BT.2020.
