Teranex is the world renowned standards convertor with incredible virtually transparent quality! Broadcast masters are converted with full quality allowing worldwide distribution. Teranex is perfect for live production and, with the built-in Thunderbolt™ port, can also be used for cleaning and converting content for authoring as well as video capture and playback for editing, design and effects! Teranex is the perfect video converter, standards converter and capture and playback tool all in one!
Teranex simply provides more conversion than any other solution. It includes extremely high quality de-interlacing, up conversion, down conversion, SD and HD cross/standards conversion, automatic cadence detection and removal even with edited content, noise reduction, adjustable scaling and aspect ratio conversion. All with full timecode and multi-channel audio conversion. Also includes 3D dual channel conversion, patent pending 3D simulation and 3D camera rig alignment!
The Blackmagic-Design Teranex 3D Processor is an advanced-quality standards converter as well as video format converter and capture and playback device all-in-one. As a standards converter, it can convert from most any television format to any other television format in the highest quality. Conversions are indistinguishable from the original master. And as for capture/playback functionality, the Teranex can simultaneously convert formats and -- via Thunderbolt -- capture files into a computer for editing.
With advanced 3D processing, conversion, simulation and camera align tools, Teranex 3D can deliver full resolution dual channel 3D format and frame-rate conversions and it can convert 2D content into 3D.
What makes Teranex so good is an advanced SIMD technology--developed and patented by Teranex--that allows instant calculations on thousands of pixels simultaneously in X, Y positions and between video frames. Processing is applied within the frame and between frames all at the same time, delivering better de-interlacing, inter-frame interpolation and noise reduction.
Overall, the processor features extremely high-quality de-interlacing, up and down conversion, SD and HD cross conversion, SD and HD standards conversion, automatic cadence detection and removal (even with edited content), noise reduction, adjustable scaling, aspect ratio conversion, and timecode conversion; and accompanying all the video conversion functionality is 16 channel audio conversion capacity.
Standards conversions can actually also be employed for reasons other than the general need to convert. Conversions can be performed simply to protect equipment such as decks, switchers, transmitters and encoders from standards they don't support. And as far as non-general uses go, the Teranex can additionally be used to synchronize and convert video feeds.
A bunch of software comes included. Two of them are Media Express and UltraScope. UltraScope lets you measure your video signal levels with a Thunderbolt-connected computer, displaying 6 simultaneous live scopes on a single screen. The addition of these two applications to your NLE give you a complete editing toolset to complement an all-in-one conversion/capture device.
