The Calibre FOVEA-F1 provides an advanced, powerful MEMC (Motion Estimation Motion Compensated) alternative to the linear frame rate conversion capability of Imagine Communications’ respected Selenio X50™ and Selenio X100™ 1RU processing platforms. The FOVEA-F1 extends the company’s facility signal processing portfolio into global high-quality content conversion for applications including live sports, worldwide event broadcasts and post production.

The content-adaptive, broadcast-grade HD FOVEA-F1 can handle live, recorded/archived or computer-generated content via its graphics-to-video scan converter and frame synchronizer, and provides powerful MEMC frame rate conversion, noise reduction, image enhancement/restoration and aspect ratio conversion. The FOVEA-F1 uses a specialist custom video processor architecture to achieve excellent picture performance at an extremely competitive price point — including dedicated MEMC motion processing with an exceptionally large 16-field aperture for optimal motion detection, even with difficult long cadences and mixed video and film content.

Superb scaling with 1024-tap filters, 4-field per-pixel motion adaptive de-interlacing, outstanding per-pixel motion adaptive noise reduction and image enhancement techniques not only improve HD sources but also make SD near-HD quality.

Support for Closed Caption is provided, including conversion between HD CEA708 and SD CEA608 formats. VITC Embedded Timecode is also supported and includes automatic delay correction and automatic conversion to/from drop-frame timecode.

Scan conversion mode can also be used to normalize computer scan rates to video scan rates with motion-compensated conversion.

Proc-amp controls include luma gain/contrast, luma cutoff/black level, saturation, hue, R-Y, B-Y gains and cut-offs. Y, R-Y and B-Y adjustments have 10-bit granularity.

Trim, Pan and Tilt functions enable display of a particular area with custom aspect ratio control. Pre-defined aspect ratio conversion functionality includes a progressive stretch for pseudo 16:9 from 4:3 source material.

Genlock to 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, tri-level or bi-level sync or black and burst is also provided.
