The Blackmagic-Design Teranex 2D Processor is an advanced-quality standards teraenx as well deslgn 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. What makes Teranex so good is an advanced SIMD technology–developed and patented by Teranex–that allows instant calculations on thousands of pixels simultaneously in X, Y positions and between video frames.

Processing is applied within the frame and between frames all at the same time, delivering better de-interlacing, inter-frame interpolation and noise reduction. Overall, the processor features extremely high-quality de-interlacing, up and down conversion, SD and HD cross conversion, SD and HD standards conversion, automatic cadence detection and removal even with edited contentnoise reduction, adjustable scaling, aspect ratio conversion, and timecode conversion; and accompanying all the video conversion functionality is 16 channel audio conversion capacity.

Standards conversions can actually also be employed for reasons other than the general need to convert. Conversions can be performed simply to protect equipment such as decks, switchers, transmitters and encoders from standards they don’t support.

And as far as non-general uses go, the Teranex can additionally be used to synchronize and convert video feeds. A bunch of software comes included. Two of them are Media Express and UltraScope. UltraScope lets you measure your video signal levels with a Thunderbolt-connected computer, displaying 6 simultaneous live scopes on a single screen. Blackmagic Design Teranex 2D Processor.

Teranex features proprietary and patented PixelMotion de-interlacing algorithms so you get improved image quality by maintaining vertical resolution. Teranex converts between frame rates such as these, adding and removing cadence as required.

Move between video and film worlds with ease. Cadence Detect and Remove Teranex is unique because it can automatically remove cadence 3: 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 processlr adjustable scaling.

Use adjustable scaling proceszor you need to blackmgic 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: 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. It’s common to work with mixed video formats in a single project and using a Teranex Processor this has never been easier.

procfssor 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. 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.

Teranex 2D Processor is rated 4. Rated 4 out of 5 by JT from Teranex 2D is an excellent buy. I use the teranex to upres and clean up SD material for HD. The teranex does a very very good job of upresing and format conversions.

It really beats any software only solution Bpackmagic have used in the past. Black Magic has done a good job of re-tooling the Teranex.

There are a lot of functions, though, that are not implemented yet that I am looking forward to – 2K and adjustable center crop are the primary ones. I think that this box will continue to improve with software updates from blackmagic. Plus a ton of archive and animated photos. The doc was originally edited in 60i. We paid a facility in LA to do a frame rate conversion and teranwx over 5k on the transfer to 24p for DCP and our distributors specs.

At the end of the day we didn’t pass QC with our distributor.

Last week we decided to buy the Teranex. The 2nd transfer was way sharper then the first transfer. I am not sure what the other post house was using, but I think it was a PHC or something like that.

So maybe some of this stuff was human error. Needless to say we spent 2k for this box and 2 days of our time and I feel we have a great 24p conversion. We did have to run some shot through it a couple of time trying different settings and some stuff mostly 7d that was imported into avid, but this was not all of the 7d just some had to be reimported and re-edited. But I am very happy. We are still waiting for QC notes, but I am very confident in this delivery. My only wish is that I could manually zoom in on footage when up converting so I can get rid of those black line on the top and side on old footage.


Rated 4 out of 5 by Wayne from Where to start I’ve only had this unit a few days, so this is extremely superficial. The CEO of the company introduces the manual by saying he’s still getting familiar with the unit, so I don’t claim to have gone through it exhaustively by any means.

My original plan for the unit, which is to up-convert an SD camera to HD, won’t work. I cannot get all the resolution the camera is capable of in the converted picture. I would not consider this a design fault though. For the money, this is a universal interface converter, test pattern generator, scaler and so much else.

The front panel is intuitive and no deep menu dives are necessary to get things going. The menu screen is also a picture monitor so it is easy to check that input is present. There is some amount of processing delay even if no scaling is being used. It will not work with arbitrary vga scan rates.

It is possible to select analog composite output in HD mode but there will be no signal. Do not install the standalone waveform monitor program. Rated 2 out of 5 by Pasha from I discovered unpleasant surprises I see that all reviews here are great, but we had a terrible experience with this unit. Things that I discovered: Timecode is almost impossible to pass through the Teranex, especially when using with Thunderbolt.

We contacted Blackmagic Design and they said something along the lines it wasn;t designed that way. May be we’ll bring it up at our next engineering meeting. We were trying to convert Again, Blackmagioc design blackmabic very supportive except asking to try 24psf mode instead. Had to return the unit. Great for low-budget projhects, but for broadcast scenarios aI need the Timecode to transfer nfrom source to destination.

Using the Teranex 2D to just convert Alexia camera The unit has a nice menu structure to be able to adjust the settings. Still slowly reading the pdf manual to realize the potential of this converter. The video lcd screen works great and tells 2e the input or output format this can save you the added cost of another monitor.

We utilize the teranez in our satellite uplink trucks. We sure appreciate the attitude and the professionalism. They do care about making a positive impact on their clients. Keep up the great work! Blackmagic has done procssor again, providing high end technology at a reasonable price.

While not all source content is equal, with a high quality SD source up conversions look outstanding. Be the first to review this item. See any errors on this page? Sony compatible RS deck control port Serial ports TxRx direction-reversible under software control.
