NOA Spotlights Complete Digitization Workflow

  • 01 September, 2022


AUT: AV digitizing and archiving specialist NOA will be present at IBC2022 (Booth 8.C79) showcasing its latest innovations that are designed to meet the evolving needs of broadcasters around the world.

During the international event, which takes place Sept. 9-12 in Amsterdam at the RAI convention center, the company will unveil its latest version of the FrameLector ingest software: FrameLector 2.0.

With the introduction of state-of-the-art FrameLector 2.0, NOA transforms the dual-stream ingest software into a four-stream solution, allowing users to host four channels from just one computer, notably reducing cost and optimizing utilization of available hardware resources.

FrameLector 2.0 provides low-level transfer analysis for unmonitored parallel ingest of multiple streams in a simple and intuitive user interface for efficient and quality-controlled mass digitization of video tapes. The easy-to-use tool combines built-in shot detection and a mathematically lossless open-source recording/mezzanine format in 8-bit or 10-bit. It allows archivists to capture video material - along with technical metadata including VITC and/or LTC timecode - without compromising quality.

FrameLector 2.0, which also features remote control and an infinitely scalable multi-stream parallel solution with complete previewing, supports four 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.

In addition, at IBC2022 NOA will unveil the latest advances to its MediaButler transcoding processor, which now also support HD formats.

In addition to natively supported long-term archival formats such as FFV1 in order to meet the need of archives who wish to store ingested material in high resolution, NOA’s media transcoding processor MediaButler is now also capable of transcoding into many more formats (such as XDCAM HD in OP1a MXF and more), MediaButler HD scaling will be available for workflows requiring sophisticated upscaling (e.g. from ingested SD-material) as well as intelligent downscaling (e.g. from archived 4K film scans for broadcast).

“We strive to continuously and efficiently respond to our customers’ needs,” said Christophe Kummer, Managing Partner of NOA. “We’re excited to be back at IBC and this year we’ll be welcoming customers and partners to our new booth that will have more demoing space.”
