HD Frame Rate Converter
Frame Rate Conversion provides the ability to change between a variety of different frame rates. This is done by tracking the vector motion of each group of pixels, then crafting a whole new set of frames at the new rate. FOR-A's years of experience in digital video processing makes us the leader in this new HD technology.
One major problem with linear converters performing simple frame rate conversion is their inability to perform suitable conversion on moving objects. In the FRC-7000, FOR-A's long experience in video processing technology was used to develop a motion compensation processing technique based on motion vectors. The motion vector of the object is detected, and movement of the interpolation frame object is generated based on the object’s amount of vector movement in the frames just before and after the calculated area. The result is frame rate conversion with minimum judder.
Another problem in frame rate conversion is the processing of scene changes. Because an interpolation frame is generated from the frames before and after, the process can fail to convert the video properly by combining the frames before and after the scene boundary. The FRC-7000 incorporates a scene cut detection function. Scene changes are automatically detected so that frame rate conversion is performed without using motion compensation processing on unrelated data for the frames before and after scene cuts.
