Pacific Television Center Simplifies its Productions with FOR-As UFM-30FRC Frame Rate Converter

FOR-A Corporation of America announces that Pacific Television Center (PacTV), a leading provider of global transmission and live broadcast production services, is relying on its UFM-30FRC HD/SD frame rate converter for the companys operations.  PacTV owns three UFM-30FRC units and has been using its up/down/cross converting capabilities for wide-ranging format conversions to transmit feeds around the world. 

As PacTV constantly works with incoming feeds via satellite and their proprietary global fiber network, the UFM-30FRCs built-in frame synchronizer is an important tool for the service provider.  This feature clears up any drops in incoming signals that have the potential to cause issues in signal conversion and distribution. Both the frame sync and any format in/out functions of the UFM-30FRC minimize the need for additional processing gear and simplify PacTVs conversions of various standards. Another feature of the UFM-30FRC that makes production simpler for PacTV operators is the Web graphical user interface (GUI), which affords them quick, easy setup and control from any of their three facilities.

The UFM-30FRC offers motion compensation that rivals that of top-of-the-line converters while being very affordable, said Jakob Nielsen, PacTVs Projects Coordinator. PacTV is a longtime user of FOR-As products. In addition to the UFM-30FRC, we also rely on other FOR-A solutions, such as their video switchers, playback systems and other frame rate converter units. We have always found their quality, delivery, and technical support to be exceptional.  The bottom line is that FOR-A enables us to better support our broadcast clients.

PacTV has utilized FOR-As UFM-30FRC for numerous international sports broadcasts, including boxing, tennis, golf, wrestling, racecar driving, and martial arts events, as well as live news productions. The UFM-30FRC is part of FOR-As UFM Modular product series and can be installed into a FOR-A UFM universal frame.

Gigcasters Achieves Broadcast Quality Live Streaming with the Zixi OnAir Mobile App

Gigcasters, a live streaming engineering company, has seen mobile production increase during the pandemic and witnessed first-hand the benefits of higher frequency, lower cost productions using Zixi’s OnAir app infrastructure. The company first tried live video delivery remotely using laptops and WebRTC, but found the reliability of the feed was not good, and packet loss and image quality were insufficient. Once the Zixi OnAir app was quickly enabled on local production teams’ mobile phones, getting a broadcast-quality feed was easy.
