Digital video offers the ability to acquiring and distribute content in a great variety of forms. No matter what resolution, format, aspect ratio or frame rate you shot and finished in, someone, somewhere will inevitably need it in a completely different form. This month, our program will address the problems encountered in converting video from one format to another, and offer some insights into solutions that preserve video quality during these processes.
Virgil Lowe is a pioneer in the broadcast video industry. He began his career as an Electronics Professor at the College of Southern Utah at age 22. In the following years, he worked for Honeywell EDP in Boston, and many positions at Ampex in Redwood City. Virgil then founded Edutron in 1975, which later changed its name to Fortel. He has received numerous patents for groundbreaking technology, including analog and digital signal processing architecture, time base correction and color correction systems, and a comb filter that revolutionized the quality of digital video. It is on the foundation of these technologies, that Virgil launched Fortel DTV.
