All with full timecode and multi-channel audio conversion. Also includes 3D dual channel conversion, patent pending 3D simulation and 3D camera rig alignment!

Use Anywhere!

With the ability to convert from virtually any television format to any other television format at the highest quality, Teranex has hundreds of uses in any broadcast and post production facility. Use Teranex for general conversion as well as protecting decks, transmitters/encoders and switchers from video standards they don’t support simply by installing Teranex before the video input! Add Teranex into OB vehicles to synchronize and convert video feeds, even in 3D!

Teranex Quality

Advanced SIMD technology developed and patented by Teranex allows instant calculations on thousands of pixels simultaneously in X, Y positions and between video frames, so you get true super computer imaging power. Processing is applied within the frame and between frames all at the same time, so you get better de-interlacing, inter-frame interpolation and noise reduction. This is why Teranex conversions are indistinguishable from the original master!

“Every piece of equipment I’ve used from Blackmagic is rock solid. We’re making TV commercials in a Broadcast environment and we have to have the highest standard.“

More Connections

When working in high end formats such as 4:4:4 and 3D, the Teranex 3D Processor includes dual SD/HD and 3 Gb/s SDI input and output for dual link 4:4:4 as well as single link 3 Gb/s SDI 4:4:4. The dual channels also allow true full resolution left and right eye 3D processing where both eyes are converted at the same time in perfect sync! When running true full resolution dual stream 3D, the HDMI connection and Thunderbolt capture and playback support dual stream 3D via the single cable.

Teranex Processing is asked for by name around the world!

Teranex Processors provide more conversion than any other solution! Now you can convert the rising number of video formats seamlessly and at such a high level of quality that the output is indistinguishable in appearance from the original master! Choose either the single channel Teranex 2D processor or the dual channel Teranex 3D Processor depending on your needs.

With dual channel SDI inputs and outputs the Teranex 3D Processor is perfect for full resolution dual stream 3D format and frame-rate conversions and also supports dual link and 3 Gb/s single link 4:4:4 conversion. The Teranex 3D Processor also includes the new Teranex 3D simulator that automatically generates incredible 3D signals from 2D sources!

High Quality De-interlace

Teranex quality starts with one of the world’s highest quality and most precise de-interlacers. Teranex features proprietary and patented PixelMotion de-interlacing algorithms so you get improved image quality by maintaining vertical resolution.

Up Conversion

When converting from NTSC or PAL SD up to 720HD or 1080HD, Teranex is perfect because it features a wide range of aspect ratio options and multi-direction diagonal filters so “jaggies” are eliminated and you get clean HD looking images!

Down Conversion

Teranex down conversion allows amazing SD feeds from your HD sources. 1080HD and 720HD video sources, combined with the de-interlace, and multi-direction diagonal filters, give you great SD images with a range of aspect choices.

SD/HD Cross Conversion

Often work is completed in the native film frame rate of 23.98 or 24 fps and then broadcast in 25 or 29.97 fps. Teranex converts between frame rates such as these, adding and removing cadence as required. Move between video and film worlds with ease!

SD/HD Standards Conversion

Linear standards conversion is easy with the powerful SIMD processor which can analyze and calculate pixels between frames as easily as anywhere in the frame! This is why Teranex performs the world’s best linear standards conversion available!

Cadence Detect and Remove

Teranex is unique because it can automatically remove cadence (3:2 pulldown) from video when converting 24 fps, even when the footage has been previously edited and suffers from flash fields. That’s perfect for mastering clean online content!

Teranex

Noise Reduction

Remove unwanted noise from transmission links, videotape, or even camera sources. Teranex includes award winning temporal recursive noise reduction. Reducing noise allows more efficient video compression when authoring content!

Adjustable Scaling

For times when you need to adjust images with complete freedom, Teranex includes fully adjustable scaling. Use adjustable scaling when you need to set custom aspect ratios, or even for reframing shots to remove image edge artifacts.

Aspect Ratio Conversion

Teranex supports a wide range of aspect ratios, including variable and fixed aspect ratios as well as active fill. Also included is the proprietary Smart aspect that warps images from 4:3 to 16:9 without visible stretching of the image that normally occurs.

Audio, Timecode and Subtitles

Video includes a lot more than images, and Teranex also supports conversion of up to 16 audio channels plus timecode and closed caption VANC data. This means timecode matches during conversion to the 0 frames, and subtitles are retained!

Dual Channel 3D and 4:4:4

When working in high end formats such as 4:4:4 and 3D, the Teranex 3D model includes dual SD/HD and 3 Gb/s SDI input and output for dual link 4:4:4 as well as single link 3 Gb/s SDI 4:4:4. The dual channels also allow true full resolution left and right eye 3D processing where both eyes are converted at the same time in perfect sync! When running true full resolution dual stream 3D, the HDMI connection and Thunderbolt capture and playback support dual stream 3D via the single cable.
