Framerate conversion for Live IP and SDI media streams.
Alchemist Live offers the very best motion compensated framerate conversion for Live IP and SDI media streams.
Supporting SD, HD, 1080p, 4K and HDR Alchemist Live provides transparent, artifact free conversion enabling seamless global distribution of live media.
Alchemist Live SDI offers support for SDI, SD to UHD. UHD is supported via quad link (square division).
Alchemist Live IP offers native support for SMPTE 2110 via 25G host bus adapter. This version is coming in the first half of 2018.
Alchemist is recognized in the broadcast community as the gold standard in motion compensated framerate conversion. We live and breathe moving images and have done so for 30 years. Our pioneering research and investment into motion estimation enables Alchemist Live to seamlessly and transparently convert from one framerate to another under all conditions for any live environment.
Alchemist Live provides motion compensated conversion to ensure smooth, fluid and high-quality images – this is particularly the case with live sports, where the content is fast and dynamic. Majority of sports contain multiple objects moving in different directions at a variety of speeds. Inferior solutions can only track one global motion and consequently other moving objects suffer. SAM delivers clear, sharp and fluid images without the need for complex optimization settings and specifically solves the problem of artifacts during live conversion.
