What is FrameLector?

FrameLector is a dual-stream ingest software for SD-video legacy sources with transfer quality control.

FrameLector is available as part of the stand-alone system FrameLector Pico or as a part of a multi-seated digitisation facility aiming for high throughput, then requiring a jobDB or mediARC environment. FrameLector provides ingestion combined with lowlevel transfer analysis for unmonitored parallelized ingest of multiple streams in a simple and intuitive user interface for efficient and quality controlled mass transcription of video tapes. 

As an easy-to-use ingest tool that combines built-in shot detection and a mathematically lossless open-source recording/mezzanine format in either 8bit or 10bit, FrameLector allows users to capture SD material – along with its required metadata such as VITC and LTC timecode – without compromising quality. Other features include remote control and an infinitely scalable multi-stream parallel solution with complete previewing. 

The hardware supports two parallel ingest sources and connects peripherals through SDI. A separate customized NOA hardware (VTRi-1) provides RS422 and RS232 connection, as well as ISR and RF readout via a simple USB connection.
