[Mike Zimbard] " Jeremy can you explain why? I'm trying to understand why a frame would be lost. Aren't you just going from 1920x1080 @25 fps to 768x576 @25fps"

Mike the frame is not lost, but delayed since it takes specific amount of time to pass the signal thru the chips doing the conversions (be they up or down - NTSC or PAL)

Kona Conversions are delayed by 1 frame for continuity (all decks and encoders that handle this type of conversions maintain at least this amount of delay-- some like Terenex are more, with as much as 3-10 frames depending on the image processing required).

This delay is because that signal has to pass thru the additional circuitry needed for the conversions- One frame is necessary since some formats have fields and some frames it had to be tied to the shortest period of time that covers all formats.

make since?
