Stanley Productions goes HD with Alchemist Platinum Ph.C

With the purchase of a Snell & Wilcox Alchemist Platinum Ph.C, London's Stanley Productions has added what owner Stanley Aarons calls "top of the market" standards conversion to the vast range of services and products it offers clients.
Stanley is using the Alchemist Platinum Ph.C motion compensated standards converter to provide a full range of high-end standards conversion services, including all formats of SD to all formats of SD and HD. HD conversions are done exclusively using the Alchemist Platinum.
"We're seeing greater demand from our customers for HD work, and have equipped our facility to handle all of the HD formats," said Aarons. "For HD standards conversion, we selected Alchemist Platinum since as far as we're concerned it's the top converter on the market."
A long-time Snell & Wilcox customer, Stanley Productions has had a central London presence for more than 30 years, offering both duplication and standards conversion services as well as an array of audio and video equipment that ranges from the hardest-to-find recording media to video recorders, monitors, cameras, and edit controllers.
To date, Stanley has used the Alchemist Platinum for HD standards conversion projects in markets including high-end feature films, episodic television, and concert videos. The converter is specified with options to enhance its capabilities with multiple types of material, such as Clean Cut 2 to eliminate smearing across scene changes plus P-Film and video to film for superior performance in handling film and mixed media.
"We do conversions from HD to Digibeta and DVcam, and Alchemist Platinum has been very useful in cases where it's necessary to change the frame rate," Aarons added. "The Alchemist's ability to do this automatically is especially handy in animation projects, and we've seen it used in some corporate productions as well."
The Alchemist Platinum Ph.C uses Snell & Wilcox's proprietary Ph.C (phase correlation) motion compensation technology to ensure the most precise motion processing possible. The latest of six generations of Ph.C converters developed by Snell & Wilcox, the Alchemist Platinum Ph.C represents the culmination of 15 years of continuous R&D efforts and improvements in motion-compensated conversion.
