Snell will introduce two new standards and format converters to its Kudos Plus range at Broadcast Video Expo 2010.

The CVR800 also offers motion-adaptive frame-rate and format conversion (up, down, cross).

The TBS800 provides motion-adaptive format conversion and synchronization for 3Gb/s, HD, and SD video.

Both units are designed to streamline HD broadcast workflows and will support 3Gb/s data rates and composite video in and out.

The systems include a flexible and powerful set of linear and nonlinear tools for user-controlled enhancements, such as the adjustment of horizontal and vertical attributes during format conversion.

As moving video elements are processed by the systems’ motion-adaptive format conversion technology, a stills mode for format conversion enables operators to process stationary items, such as logos and banners, separately from the main picture to ensure optimal quality.

Also on show at BVE will be the European debut of the Kahuna CF+ cost-effective 2.5-M/E production switcher and the Morpheus ICE (Integrated Content Engine) standalone automation and master control system.

Broadcast Video Expo 2010 takes place 16-18 February at Earls Court 2 in London
