Teranex Express can perform an incredible 178 up/down conversions between SD, HD, and Ultra HD in real time. You can use Teranex Express for video conversions or to synchronize non genlocked, external feeds, or cameras into switchers for live production. Conversions retain timecode, include closed caption data, and always maintain perfect audio sync so your video is immediately ready for editing or broadcast.

Advanced Connections
Broadcast quality connections for 24/7 reliability

Teranex Express features the most advanced broadcast connections, including the world’s first dual link 12G-SDI that is compatible with all of your existing SDI equipment. The genlock input lets you synchronize signals between equipment and for larger studios, you can install an optional fiber optic module that lets you run video from up to 28 miles away.

12G-SDI
High speed multi-rate SDI for SD, HD and Ultra HD

Teranex Express is the world’s first broadcast converter to include multi-rate 12G-SDI connections. That means it can switch between 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI making it compatibile with all of your existing SD, HD, and Ultra HD equipment. These connections can transfer data at an amazing 12 gigabits per second, making them fast enough to support progressive Ultra HD video at up to 60fps. That means Teranex Express will be able to support emerging formats when they become available, making it the most expandable and future proof solution you can buy.

Teranex Quality
Amazing detail, sharpness and clarity

Teranex Express features the advanced processing technology developed and patented by Teranex, which allows instant calculations on thousands of pixels simultaneously. You get full 10 bit processing, extremely high quality de-interlace and new optical quality Ultra HD scaling algorithms that interpolate images in real time with amazing detail, sharpness and clarity without artifacts. That’s why Teranex conversions are indistinguishable from the original source video.

High Quality Deinterlace
Patented PixelMotion technology and multi direction filtering

Teranex’s proprietary and patented PixelMotion deinterlacing algorithms create perfect progressive frames for conversion by adjusting the aperture on a pixel by pixel basis. That means you get improved image quality because the vertical resolution is maintained. PixelMotion deinterlacing preserves source detail and, when combined with multi direction diagonal filters, eliminates jaggies on conversions so you get well defined edges and the sharpest images possible.

Video Control
Adjust colour, aspect ratio and more.

Now you can quickly and easily find the tools you need to correct colour, convert formats or change aspect ratio. Teranex Express features a logically designed front panel and soft menus so you can adjust luminance, saturation, hue, black level, R-Y/B-Y colour difference, sharpness, and more with the built in proc amp controls. Teranex Express features an integrated LCD screen on the front panel so you can make adjustments with confidence during live broadcasts.

Ancillary Data
Multi channel audio, timecode and subtitles

Video includes a lot more than images, and Teranex supports conversion of up to 16 audio channels plus timecode and closed caption VANC data. Teranex Express is also compatible with Dolby encoded audio, so it never has to be decoded or re-encoded during up and down conversions. With Teranex Express your subtitles are always retained and both audio and timecode always stay in perfect sync with your video.

Mandated By Broadcasters
Teranex is asked for by name worldwide.

Teranex processing is so well known for quality that it has been mandated globally by many country’s broadcasters for converting video. Because of its patented 10-bit processing algorithms and high quality deinterlacing, Teranex conversions look perfect, making distribution simple and problem free.
