24 Frame Video Playback Converter

Equipment rental powered by

The newest generation broadcast quality frame rate converter designed specifically for the film industry and widely used by studios and playback specialists.

Conventional standards converters are not designed for the varied playback situations encountered in the film industry, and often require the use of additional equipment. Schindler Imaging has incorporated the functionality of other equipment with our high quality processing, producing a single unit solution to simplify the task of 24 frame video playback. 

From 2001 to 2009, Schindler Imaging (now known as California Media Engineering) produced the MVP-24 Frame-rate converter. The MVP-24 (often called “the Schindler”) quickly became the industry standard for 24 Frame playback specialists.

The design of the MVPHD-24 is based on the earlier MVP-24’s functionality and has a similar look and feel. The MVPHD-24 maintains the same features as the earlier MVP-24 with many new standard features including full 10bit 1080p processing; up/down frame rate conversion; still image capture and display; custom test signals; HDMI, VGA, SDI, HD/SD component, and composite inputs and outputs.
