Blackmagic Design Releases Teranex 3.2 Update


Blackmagic Design announced the release of a v. 3.2 update for Teranex, which adds full motion standards conversions for a total of 1089 real time SD, HD and Ultra HD format conversions. With this new software update and Teranex Express’s 12G-SDI technology, now customers can convert between any SD, HD and Ultra HD video format all the way up to 2160P 60.

Teranex 3.2 Update is available for download now, free of charge from the Blackmagic Design website. The update provides a massive increase to the number of conversions available on Teranex Express. After installing this update, Teranex Express customers see an additional 862 conversions that include new format and frame rate conversions along with 3:2 pull down detection and removal. SD masters can be up-converted to HD, frame rate converted and 2:3 pulldown can be removed all in one step. Cadence can be automatically detected and removed, even from edited content so Teranex Express is ideal for turning older standard definition broadcast masters into high-definition online content for modern internet distribution.

Teranex Express is also ideal for bridging the HD and Ultra HD worlds, because it supports advanced 12G-SDI technology that’s multi-rate so the 12G-SDI connections will switch between all SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI automatically depending on the conversion selected. This means customers can move 720P or 1080P sources to Ultra HD in real time.

The frame rate conversion and image scaling uses the same Teranex algorithms as other models, giving customers visually transparent conversions between formats. That means customers get high quality de-interlacing, up conversion, down conversion, SD, HD and Ultra HD cross and standards conversions, automatic 3:2 pull down detection and removal, noise reduction, adjustable scaling, aspect ratio conversion, timecode, ancillary data and multi-channel audio.

“When Blackmagic Design introduced Teranex Express at NAB 2014 it delivered 178 different real time up and down conversions, which combined with the world’s first 12G-SDI made it a great product,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “It’s like getting a whole new converter for free, just by downloading the new software.”
