Snell – Raise your IQ!

Posted by in 2. INFO-TECH,Snell | August 27, 2013

Format conversion is a term used to describe processing applied to media content without a change of frame rate.  Upconverting content from SD to HD, downconverting from HD to SD, or cross-conversion between HD standards (e.g. 1080 50i to 720 50p) would all be types of format conversion.  Format conversion also encompasses aspect ratio conversion, which may be part of the up or down conversion, or may be needed independently e.g. to convert an SD 4:3 picture to SD 16:9.What features do I need to consider when choosing a format converter?
