Convert and Scale SDI

Maximize your returns on production costs with powerful 3D processing, image conversion and scaling


The demands and advances of 3D, high definition (HD), and handling multi-formats is the primary impetus behind Thinklogical’s broadcast/post-production solution, the ImageEvolution. The ImageEvolution X3 not only converts and scales video signals in real-time; it provides the highest quality images for professional audio-visual end users.


Designed as a high performance video processor for post-production and broadcast applications, the ImageEvolution provides exceptional and enhanced image processing and quality. This stand-alone product allows for advanced real-time image correction and scaling, while at the same time functioning as a video converter which supports input/output of SD/HD/dual-link HD/3G SDI.  In addition, then ImageEvolution X3 is full SMPTE compliant, including the active loop out ports.

3D Processing Features

  • Conversion of side-by-side 3G-SDI or HD-SDI to a 2D right half image 3G-SDI or HD-SDI output

  • Conversion of dual stream HD-SDI input to dual stream HD-SDI output

  • Conversion of dual stream HD-SDI input to side-by-side 3G-SDI or HD-SDI output

  • Conversion of dual stream HD-SDI input to line interleaved 3G-SDI output

Video Processor Features:

  • Qdeo™ true color – a unique solution for using the full dynamic range of 10-bit and 12-bit displays which eliminates contouring seen when viewing typical 8-bit consumer video

  • Intelligent color remapping (IRC) – enables vivid color without hue shifts and clipping while maintaining accurate flesh tone

  • Adaptive contrast enhancement (ACE) – brings out shadow detail without crushing mid-tones or highlights

  • Natural depth expansion – enhances details and sensation of depth for greater realism and super resolution effect

  • Adaptive scaling – produces sharp and clean images at low or high resolutions

  • Advanced per-pixel, motion-adaptive, edge-adaptive 3D de-interlacing with support for arbitrary film cadences – removes “jaggies” and “feathering” to product smooth and clear images

  • Content-adaptive block and mosquito noise reduction – significantly reduces the blocking and mosquito noise artifacts present in compressed video

  • Per-pixel motion-adaptive video noise reduction – removes the white Gaussian noise present in most types of video
