up-convert 720 to 108024pfs
on Feb 5, 2007 at 2:37:38 pm

Is a Kona 3 capable of upconverting FCP 720p (Varicam) files from a Mac Quad to 1080 24pfs into an HDcam HDW-1800 deck? Anyone have experience with this or thoughts about how this might or might not work?
Thanks

This is a CROSS convert not an UP convert. UP Conversion is SD to HD. You are asking about HD to HD cross conversion.

The Kona 2 does not do CROSS Conversion.

1. You have the optiion of placing your 720P sequence into a 1080P sequence and rendering that sequence. You could then output the 1080P sequence to the HDCAM deck.

2. Have to 720P output to a 1400A deck. Then recapture from that deck at 1080P (let the deck handle to upconversion)

You should also let us know if this is 23.98 or 59.94 because that will make a huge difference when deciding how to finsih.

Rob,

specificly, yes, the kona 3 does the varicam to 1080p cross convert (which is so full of mathematical computations many do consider it a up convert).

this link will be of interest, especially if you want to have it in extremely high quality to pass quality control tests.

good luck!

Hey, that's me they're talking about! I was about to link to my blog on the topic, but I forgot that they did a writeup about us. Good catch.

Yes, we crossconverted from DVCPRO HD 720p 23.98 to 1080p 23.98 on HDCAM via the Kona 3.

Would you contact me please at rob@gardnerfilms.com. I'd like to talk to you about your workflow. We are also doing a series for History Channel with the Varicam and HDX 900.
Thanks
Rob Gardner
