  • Frame synchronization and additional video delay including continuous output on input standard changes
  • RGB Legalizer with Black Level adjustment limits
  • Pre- and post-scaler video proc amp and RGB color correction support
  • HDR (PQ, HLG, S-Log3) scene-referred and display-referred conversions with BT2020 wide color gamut support
  • 3D user LUT loading with full support for BBC type I, II & III 1.5 version LUTs
  • Linear motion adaptive frame rate conversion for all supported standards, including UHD–UHD along with video processing and powerful picture enhancement tools, edge enhance and noise reduction
  • 16-channel embedded audio processing and PCM/Dolby channel-based audio delay compensation 
  • Metadata support including closed caption, WST, timecode, SMPTE ST 2020 handling and an ancillary data bridge to allow transfer of up to seven different ANC packet types around the converter
  • Easy to use control options including front panel with control lock, and remote via HTML5 web interface and GV Orbit 
  • Automatic aspect ratio conversion with signaling support (SMPTE ST 2016, L23 ETSI, L23 AFD, VI SMPTE, VI AFD)
