Edifis announces Deliverance programme transformer

Edifis has announced the immediate availability of Deliverance, a revolutionary signal processing system designed for use in video duplication, postproduction and telecine facilities.
Deliverance provides a wide range of features which previously required numerous space-consuming and expensive hardware tools, often from various manufacturers.
Occupying just 2U and designed for use either in conjunction with an Edifis disk recorder such as Sting or any HD or SD source, Deliverance can perform 3:2 pulldown sequence insertion, HD and SD aspect ratio transform with horizontal and vertical pan, HD downconversion, Slow-PAL to 525 conversion, HD & SD safe-area generation and 48 kHz audio re-sampling.
Edifis Sales Director Richard Lilley comments: "Deliverance is a very powerful unit which performs all major signal conversion functions in a single compact chassis. It is easy to install, requiring a minimum of external interconnect, and offers fast and simple operation from the controller of an Edifis disk recorder or via a standard 10 base-T Ethernet port and PC GUI. Full uncompressed component digital signal handling and internal 16 point adaptive filters ensure excellent picture quality with no temporal artefacts."
Deliverance is capable of the following signal transfer functions with user-adjustable aspect-ratio transform: 25 frames per second (frame/s) high definition to 25 frame/s standard definition; Slow PAL SD to NTSC SD with 3:2 pulldown; 23.9 or 24 frames/s HD to 29.9 or 30 frame/s HD with 3:2 pulldown; 23.9 or 24 frames/s HD to 29.9 frame/s SD with 3:2 pulldown (525 NTSC); 24 frame/s HD to 24 frame/s SD; 25 frame/s SD to 25 frame/s SD (aspect ratio transformed).
When operated with Edifis disk systems, Deliverance provides the additional capability of generating 525-line SDI from 24 frame/s progressive (24p) masters. In this role, the disk recorder writes at 25 frame/s and replays at 23.9 frame/s into a 3:2 sequencer feeding into Deliverance's aspect ratio transformer to yield the 525-line deliverable.
In HD mode, the system similarly applies 3:2 processing to convert 23.9 frame/s HD into 29.9 frame/s 1080-line HD. Audio pitch is shifted to maintain correct sound output. Image aspect ratio, size and position are fully user-adjustable. A standard analogue monitor RGB output can be connected to a low-cost PC display to allow HD picture viewing without requiring further investment in an expensive HD monitor, thus permitting signal verification against the internal safe area generator.
Deliverance will make its first exhibition appearance at the Edifis Stand No. 388 at the Production Show in London.
