This modular-type UFM-30FRC Frame Rate Converter can be installed in the UFM frame. The UFM-30FRC is provided with a motion compensation processing mode and linear converter mode to perform optimal conversions in accordance with the target videos. It is equipped with up-, down-, and cross-converters as standard features. The UFM-30FRC can perform wide-ranging format conversion.

  • Enables switching between motion compensation processing mode and linear converter mode
    The UFM-30FRC is provided with two types of conversion mode, namely a “motion compensation
    processing mode” and a “linear converter mode”. The former detects the motion vector amount of a
    moving object and generates the object’s motion in frames. The latter performs a simple frame-rate
    conversion based on the previous and next frames. You can use either mode in accordance with your
  • HD/SD-SDI and analog composite input and output support
    The UFM-30FRC provides various format input and frame-rate conversion support such as 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720/59.94p, 720/50p, 525/60, and 625/50.
  • Equipped with up-, down-, and cross-converters
    In addition to the standard frame-rate conversion, the UFM-30FRC can perform up-conversion from SD signals to HD signals, down-conversion from HD signals to SD signals, and cross-conversion between 1080i, 1080PsF and 720p.
