What is Cinnafilm Tachyon, and how can it enhance your video standards and frame rate conversion workflows?

Like its faster-than-light namesake, Tachyon does seemingly impossible, often faster than real-time standards conversions, frame rate conversions, reverse telecine and frame rate normalisation.

 

Available within PixelStrings and as a plug-in with Cinnafilm's OEM transcoding partners, Tachyon is the ultimate automated conversion technology. Think of it as your frame mechanics, working under the hood to fix video problems you didn’t even know existed.

OVERVIEW

The Tachyon video standards conversion tool has always been NVIDIA GPU-based to achieve unparalleled quality and speed performance. No other conversion product created for enterprise-grade transcoders matches the speed and scalability of Tachyon for performing the following:

Conversion for file-based and live IP workflows

Motion compensated-based frame rate conversions for superlative standards conversions

Advanced, two-stage de-interlacing that nearly eliminates all aliasing in SD content and extracts every possible detail from interlaced HD sources

Telecine and pattern removal including progressive patterns and patterns with broken cadences

Resolution interchange (upscale/downscale) up to 8K

Mixed-mode normalisation identifies and normalises disparate video essences

Motion blur insertion when converting from higher digital rates to lower filmic rates

Solutions for maintaining filmic look when converting to higher frame rates
