The Blackmagic Design Teranex 2D Processor is an advanced-quality standards converter as well as video format converter and capture and playback device all-in-one. As a standards converter, it can convert from most any television format to any other television format in the highest quality. Conversions are indistinguishable from the original master. And as for capture/playback functionality, the Teranex can simultaneously convert formats and -- via Thunderbolt -- capture files into a computer for editing.




High Quality De-Interlace


Teranex quality starts with one of the world's highest quality and most precise de-interlacers. Teranex features proprietary and patented PixelMotion de-interlacing algorithms so you get improved image quality by maintaining vertical resolution.


Up Conversion


When converting from NTSC or PAL SD up to 720HD or 1080HD, Teranex is perfect because it features a wide range of aspect ratio options and multi-direction diagonal filters so "jaggies" are eliminated and you get clean HD looking images.


Down Conversion


Teranex down conversion allows amazing SD feeds from your HD sources. 1080HD and 720HD video sources, combined with the de-interlace, and multi-direction diagonal filters, give you great SD images with a range of aspect choices.


SD/HD Cross Conversion


Often work is completed in the native film frame rate of 23.98 or 24 fps and then broadcast in 25 or 29.97 fps. Teranex converts between frame rates such as these, adding and removing cadence as required. Move between video and film worlds with ease.


SD/HD Standards Conversion


Linear standards conversion is easy with the powerful SIMD processor which can analyze and calculate pixels between frames as easily as anywhere in the frame.


Cadence Detect and Remove


Teranex is unique because it can automatically remove cadence (3:2 pulldown) from video when converting 24 fps, even when the footage has been previously edited and suffers from flash fields. That's perfect for mastering clean online content.


Noise Reduction


Remove unwanted noise from transmission links, videotape, or even camera sources. Teranex includes award winning temporal recursive noise reduction. Reducing noise allows more efficient video compression when authoring content.


Adjustable Scaling


Teranex includes fully adjustable scaling. Use adjustable scaling when you need to set custom aspect ratios, or even for reframing shots to remove image edge artifacts.


Aspect Ratio Conversion


Teranex supports a wide range of aspect ratios, including variable and fixed aspect ratios as well as active fill. Also included is the proprietary Smart aspect that warps images from 4:3 to 16:9 without visible stretching of the image that normally occurs.


Audio, Timecode and Subtitles


Video includes a lot more than images, and Teranex also supports conversion of up to 16 audio channels plus timecode and closed caption VANC data. This means timecode matches during conversion to the 0 frames, and subtitles are retained.


Convert and Capture


Teranex processors include a super fast 10 Gbps Thunderbolt port so you can connect it to your computer for capture and playback of video and audio. Simply plugging in a Thunderbolt cable transforms Teranex into a high end capture and playback solution with full software and SDK support. This means you get compatibility with editing software including Final Cut Pro, Media Composer and Premiere Pro. Plus support for After Effects, Photoshop, Nuke, ProTools, as well as the included Media Express and UltraScope software from Blackmagic Design.


Edit with Final Cut Pro X


Now you can easily incorporate archive SD material into HD projects and distribute projects in different resolutions and formats. It's common to work with mixed video formats in a single project and using a Teranex Processor this has never been easier. Teranex's high performance real time conversion combined with Thunderbolt technology delivers the perfect capture and playback solution. You can convert and capture any video format for editing with Final Cut Pro and more. Plus with Blackmagic Media Express and UltraScope software you have the complete editing toolset.


Blackmagic UltraScope


Blackmagic UltraScope is included with Teranex Processors so you can measure your video signal levels with a Thunderbolt connected computer. UltraScope displays 6 simultaneous live scopes on a single screen. You get Parade, Waveform, Vectorscope and Histogram, plus audio metering and a picture view with timecode. UltraScope provides technically accurate waveform monitoring that's perfect for mastering, editing and in any location where you use Teranex processing.


Mandated by Broadcasters


Teranex processing is so well known for quality that it has been mandated by major studios and many US broadcast networks for all master conversions when distributing content for worldwide delivery.
