The 3D version now features conversion between 3D formats, 3D simulation and 3D camera rig alignment as well as full 2D processing features. The 2D and 3D Teranex processors were excellent appliances even before Blackmagic Design added Thunderbolt video capture and extra processing functionality. Now with prices 90% lower, they're quite simply phenomenal. Every organization that works in 3D should have one. 

IBC 2012 - Blackmagic Teranex

The Teranex can do it all - processing, standards conversion, editing and playback via a Thunderbolt system.

  • Convert, Capture and Playback
  • Dual Stream 3D
  • Built-in Thunderbolt™ port
  • Perform broadcast quality processing including:
  • De- interlacing
  • Up conversion / down conversion
  • SD and HD cross/standards conversion
  • Automatic cadence detection, removal and correction

Get all the connections, processing and quality of the Teranex 2D model but with added dual link SD/HD and 3 Gb/s SDI and HDMI 3D inputs and outputs for dual stream 3D conversions and Dual Link 4:4:4 quality conversions. Get the same amazing processing features plus 3D features such as 3D dual stream processing, conversion between 3D formats, patent pending 3D simulation and 3D camera rig alignment.

With the Teranex 3D processor, you can connect both left and right eye feeds and perform high quality de- interlacing, up conversion, down conversion, SD and HD cross/standards conversion, automatic cadence detection, removal and correction, even adjustable scaling and aspect ratio conversion on both eye channels at the same time! When capturing via a Thunderbolt port you get support for capture and playback of two independent video files for each eye, as well as full support for 3D capable NLE software!

The world’s leading standards converter lets you move between hundreds of video formats instantly!

Teranex is the world renowned standards convertor with incredible virtually transparent quality! Broadcast masters are converted with full quality allowing worldwide distribution. Teranex is perfect for live production and, with the built-in Thunderbolt™ port, can also be used for cleaning and converting content for authoring as well as video capture and playback for editing, design and effects! Teranex is the perfect video converter, standards converter and capture and playback tool all in one!

Teranex simply provides more conversion than any other solution. It includes extremely high quality de-interlacing, up conversion, down conversion, SD and HD cross/standards conversion, automatic cadence detection and removal even with edited content, noise reduction, adjustable scaling and aspect ratio conversion. All with full timecode and multi-channel audio conversion. Also includes 3D dual channel conversion, patent pending 3D simulation and 3D camera rig alignment!

Use Anywhere!

With the ability to convert from virtually any television format to any other television format at the highest quality, Teranex has hundreds of uses in any broadcast and post production facility. Use Teranex for general conversion as well as protecting decks, transmitters/encoders and switchers from video standards they don’t support simply by installing Teranex before the video input! Add Teranex into OB vehicles to synchronize and convert video feeds, even in 3D!

Teranex Quality

Advanced SIMD technology developed and patented by Teranex allows instant calculations on thousands of pixels simultaneously in X, Y positions and between video frames, so you get true super computer imaging power. Processing is applied within the frame and between frames all at the same time, so you get better de-interlacing, inter-frame interpolation and noise reduction. This is why Teranex conversions are indistinguishable from the original master!

Advanced Processing Power

Teranex 2D and 3D Processors feature patented processing technology for the highest quality conversion between video standards, frame rates and resolutions. The incredible power of Teranex processing includes; Up Conversion, Down Conversion, SD/HD Cross Conversion, SD/HD Standards Conversion, Cadence Detect and Remove, Noise Reduction, Adjustable Scaling, Aspect Radio Conversion, Smart Aspect, Converts Timecode, Includes 16 Channel Audio, 3D Camera Align, 3D Dual Channel Standards Conversion, 3D Simulation.

More Connections

When working in high end formats such as 4:4:4 and 3D, the Teranex 3D Processor includes dual SD/HD and 3 Gb/s SDI input and output for dual link 4:4:4 as well as single link 3 Gb/s SDI 4:4:4. The dual channels also allow true full resolution left and right eye 3D processing where both eyes are converted at the same time in perfect sync! When running true full resolution dual stream 3D, the HDMI connection and Thunderbolt capture and playback support dual stream 3D via the single cable.

Teranex Processing

Teranex's legendary processing is so well known it has been mandated by film studios and broadcast networks for content conversion and distribution.

Dual Stream 3D
