IBC 2017: SAM's framerate conversion software, Alchemist XS
Staff Reporter
18 September 2017

At IBC, Snell Advanced Media (SAM) launched its motion compensated framerate conversion software, Alchemist XS, for live IP and SDI media streams.

Alchemist XS is aimed at live broadcast and is built on SAM’s Alchemist Ph.C. technology. It provides motion compensated framerate conversion for real time IP and SDI media streams, with native support for SD to 4K UHD video.  The system is delivered on a COTS server platform and supports real time 4K UHD frame rate conversion or multiple channels of HD conversion.

Alchemist XS is aimed at solving the problem of artefacts during realtime IP/SDI conversion up to UHD. Poor conversion can result in doubling of imaging on moving objects; loss of resolution; jerky or inconsistent motion; and loss of object integrity, with objects breaking up and changing shape.
