Welcome
Thank you for purchasing a Blackmagic Design Teranex
converter for your facility.
The Teranex converter you have purchased is an amazing
quality standards converter that you will spend hours
playing with to discover all the wonderful functions it has.
I am still playing with it myself to see all the other things
I can use it for! We have packed it with the latest SDI,
HDMI and analog connections so you can use it to
convert and connect anything!
One of the exciting advantages of the Teranex converter
is the amazing quality of the conversions. It features a
powerful SIMD processor that allows more complex
calculations, allowing the Teranex to do a better job at
processing video, removing field movement, detecting
cadence, noise reduction, timecode conversions, subtitle
conversion and much more!
Enjoy exploring your Teranex processor and we all hope you
have many years of enjoyment out of it. Please let us know
of any ideas and features you would like to see, as we are
constantly updating the software so it gets better and better!

Introducing Teranex
Teranex 2D Processor
Teranex is a powerful and easy to use video signal processor for real time conversion between video
standards, frame rates and resolutions. The control panel features selection buttons for primary input
and output settings, with soft menu buttons and rotary knob to navigate the LCD menus. Simply program
your input settings, program your output settings and your conversion is ready for processing.
Teranex 3D Processor
It won't take you long to familiarize yourself with Teranex. You'll find yourself quickly moving between
selection and soft menu buttons as you program your settings. Buttons are illuminated green for currently
selected or available settings, and blue when confirmed, so it's easy to see what you're doing.
Teranex Express
Enhance the quality of your conversions using noise reduction, sharpness, cadence removal, adjustable
scaling and much more.
The primary functions you can perform with Teranex are:
Up Conversion
Converting your video to a higher resolution. For example, SD to HD.
Down Conversion
Converting your video to a lower resolution. For example, HD to SD.
Cross Conversion Converting the video resolution or aspect ratio of your video.
For example, 720p59.94 to 1080i59.94.
Standards Conversion Converting your video from one frame rate to another.
For example, 1080i59.94 to 1080i50
Noise Reduction
Cleaning up noisy source material for higher quality conversions.
Test Signals
Generating known reference signals when they are needed in your work flow.
3D
Performing format and/or frame rate conversion of stereoscopic inputs and
for conversion of 2D sources into simulated 3D in the Teranex 3D Processor.
Frame SyncSynchronizing video sources that originate outside your facility to your internal
master sync generator.
However, Teranex is more than a converter, it's a high end video processor. You can add enhancements
to improve the video output from your equipment, your source material while editing, or even while
capturing and playing back from your computer via Thunderbolt. Let's get started with Teranex!

Up Conversion is the process of converting your video to a higher resolution. For example, you may need
to insert an NTSC SD source into an HD production. The NTSC clip can be converted to many 720 and
1080 HD output formats and frame rates, depending on your project’s requirement. Teranex processors
employ high quality de-interlacing and up conversion algorithms, assuring outstanding results. In this
example, 486i59.94 component analog video is converted to 1080p29.97 using zoom aspect ratio and
RCA analog audio inputs on the Teranex 2D or 3D.

Down Conversion allows you to convert your video to a lower resolution. For example, you may need
to distribute a PAL SD version of a 1080i50 HD program master to a client. Once again, high quality
de-interlacing, down-sampling and anti-aliasing algorithms will assure outstanding down conversion
results. In this example, 1080p25 video via SDI is converted to 576i50 (PAL) with letterbox aspect ratio.
Audio is embedded in the input SDI signal.

Cross Conversion allows you to change the video resolution and/or aspect ratio of your program
material. Cross conversions between 1080 and 720 HD formats are accomplished using a high quality
de-interlacing algorithm that permits all conversions to be performed in the progressive domain. In SD
formats, aspect ratio conversions between 4:3 and 16:9 are also easy to perform. In this example 486i59.94
with 16:9 aspect ratio is cross converted to letterbox 4:3 via SDI with embedded audio.

Standards Conversion, also known as Frame Rate Conversion, is the process of converting one video
frame rate another, such as converting NTSC at 59.94 fps to PAL at 50 fps. The powerful Teranex linear
interpolation algorithm analyzes pixels between and within frames, calculating new pixels in real time to
create the new output frame rate. In this example 1080i59.94 video is converted to 1080i50 via SDI with
embedded audio on the Teranex 2D or 3D.

Clean Cadence
Clean Cadence in the Teranex 2D and 3D removes broken, non standard and mixed cadences and
creates a clean 3:2 pulldown. A 3:2 cadence is found in 59.94 program material, so Clean Cadence is
only available when working with 59.94 frame rates. In this example, we will perform a cross conversion
to clean the cadence on a 1080i59.94 video signal via SDI with embedded audio. For more information
on Clean Cadence settings, see page 21.

Select sources for Dolby
encoder channels
When a Dolby Digital or Dolby E encoder is installed in the Teranex 3D, two additional selections will
appear in the Audio Menu:
Dolby Encode
The Dolby Encode menu will allow you to select your source for each channel to be encoded. For Dolby
Digital encoding, you may select up to 6 channels to be encoded. For Dolby E, you may select up to
8 channels.
You may select from discrete audio channels, Dolby decoded channels (if a Dolby decoder is also installed),
test tones or mute. This menu is similar to the Audio Mapping menu, but you should understand that
the sources selected in the Dolby Encode menu will be mapped to two Dolby encoded channels, which
may later be mapped to your output.
As an example, let’s say that you need to encode input channels 3 through 10 to Dolby E and you want
your Teranex to provide Dolby E encoded audio outputs on SDI channels 9 and 10.
‚‚ First, you would use the Dolby Encode menu to route Input 3 as the source for Dolby Encode
Channel 1.
‚‚ Press the Next button on the menu to move to Dolby Encode Channel 2 and route Input 4 to
it. Continue this process until you have routed the remaining input channels 5-10 to Encoder
channels 3-8.
‚‚ The 8 input sources routed to the Dolby E encoder module will result in two encoded output
channels. Using the Audio Mapping menu on page 23, you would map the two Dolby E
encoded channels, which we call Encode 1 and Encode 2, to your SDI output channels 9 and 10.

Dolby Metadata describes the encoded audio and conveys information to control downstream equipment.
Metadata is usually carried in the Dolby Digital or Dolby E bitstream, but can also be carried as a serial
data stream between Dolby E and/or Dolby Digital equipment.
In the Teranex 3D, Dolby Metadata may be derived from incoming Dolby audio, if a Dolby decoder
is installed, and may also be input as serial data via the 9-pin Dolby Metadata connector on the rear
of the Teranex 3D. You may also generate your own metadata in the Teranex 3D by using one of the
two commonly used configurations provided in the Dolby Metadata menu, Stereo and 5.1. See the
configurations assigned by each in the table below. The variations between the two configurations are
shown by bold text.
The Dolby Metadata menu provides for:
‚‚ Pass-Thru - If your Teranex 3D also contains a Dolby Decoder module, any metadata derived
from the decoded Dolby stream will be reinserted in the Dolby encoded output.
‚‚ External - To add metadata from an external metadata generator to your Dolby encoded
output, connect the generator to the 9-pin Dolby Metadata connector on the rear panel.
‚‚ Stereo - Pre-configured Metadata for Stereo output.
‚‚ 5.1 - Pre-configured Metadata for 5.1 encoding, typically used with Dolby Digital encoding.

The Noise Reduction algorithm in the Teranex 2D and 3D Processors looks at each pixel in an image and
processes it based on motion and types of noise. Spatial noise reduction is applied to still areas of the
picture and temporal recursive noise reduction is applied to moving areas. Using both types provides
higher quality results.
To enable noise reduction, go to Main Menu>Noise Reduction and select ON using the soft menu
buttons and rotary knob.
Please note that Noise Reduction is not available while performing frame rate conversions, such as
486i59.94 to 576i50 (NTSC to PAL) or 1080i59.94 to 1080i50.

Independent Channel Processing
Image alignment for each video channel is possible via the Camera Align application. Proc amp, timecode
and noise reduction settings are applied simultaneously to both video streams.
Audio Support
Embedded, AES and Analog audio is supported for “Channel A”. When selecting EMBED, the embedded
audio on input A will be processed and outputted via output A.
Ancillary Data Support
Ancillary data such as timecode and AFD is supported on input A and output A only.
External Reference
The output streams may be synchronized to either Input A or to an external reference of Blackburst or
Tri-level sync supplied to the REF connector. Select the type of reference, Internal or External, using
Home>Reference>Type.
When using an external reference, the user interface controls both channel A and B, enabling both
output streams to remain pixel locked, even when adjusted relative to the selected reference source.

Using your Favorite Editing Software
When your Teranex 2D or 3D Processor is connected to a computer with Thunderbolt technology it
can be used as a powerful editing solution for video capture, conversion and playback. The Teranex
software installs Blackmagic system preferences for your favorite video editing software on Mac OS X
and Windows computers.
Video Capture
When an application is capturing video, the Teranex LCD will show the word "Capture" followed by
the video format of the input signal. For example, "Capture: 1080p24". Applications including DaVinci
Resolve, Avid Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro 7, Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Photoshop
CC can all capture video from your Teranex Processor.
Teranex captures the converted video output. Press the OUT button on your Teranex and check your
project or capture preferences match the video format, frame type and frame rate shown by the
illuminated buttons.
Batch captures with RS-422 deck control may not be exactly frame accurate because of the conversion
processing delay. Accordingly, it is a good idea to use an offset or add handles to your captures. Of
course you can also capture without deck control.
Video Playback
When any video application is in playing back a clip, the Teranex Processor LCD will show the word
"Playback" followed by the video format. For example, "Playback: 1080p24". The only illuminated buttons
will be those that match the video format being played. All other buttons will be unlit and unavailable as
the playback format is set by the clip and so no conversions are allowed. Some applications including
Adobe After Effects and Apple Final Cut Pro X are always in playback mode.
The Teranex Installer software installs the Blackmagic Design
Desktop Video Control Panel in Mac OS X and Windows.
48 Capture and Playback

Waveform Monitoring
55 Waveform Monitoring
Using Blackmagic UltraScope for Waveform Monitoring
With the Teranex 2D and 3D Processors, you get the incredible features of Blackmagic UltraScope which
you can even use with compatible Mac OS X and Windows notebook computers using Thunderbolt
technology! Blackmagic UltraScope software is installed by the Teranex Processor Installer.
Blackmagic UltraScope is perfect for quality control checks of your converted output no matter which
SDI, HDMI, component analog or composite analog video input you use. Simply connect a Thunderbolt
cable between your Teranex Processor and your computer and launch Blackmagic UltraScope!
Installation Requirements
Blackmagic UltraScope - Full Screen View
The Blackmagic UltraScope software interface requires a computer display with a minimum resolution
of 1280 x 800 pixels to view two scopes simultaneously. Blackmagic Design recommends viewing all
6 scopes simultaneously by using a computer display resolution of 1920 x 1200 or 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Please see the support pages at www.blackmagicdesign.com for a comprehensive list of the latest
minimum system requirements for Blackmagic UltraScope.
Understanding Blackmagic UltraScope Views
Blackmagic UltraScope has two different views available depending on your workflow needs and screen
resolution. You have the choice of viewing six displays in “Full Screen” view, or for more compact viewing,
choose any 2 displays in “2-up” view.
The display view can be selected from the View menu.
2-Up view
Choose Full Screen to enter Full Screen view. If this option is unchecked, 2-up view will be displayed. You
can quickly switch between Full Screen view and 2-up view by using the hot key CMD-F on Mac OS X.
In 2-up view, select the desired left and right scopes by opening the View menu or by right-clicking
anywhere in the UltraScope window. Make your selections from the Left View and Right View menu options.
If you want the scopes to swap sides, select the left or right view and set it to be the same as the other
view. The scopes will swap sides because the 2-up view never displays the same scope in both the left
and right views.
Screen Resolution Requirements for Display Views
‚‚ Full Screen view: 1920 x 1200 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels. If your monitor doesn’t support
these resolutions, then Full Screen view will not be available.
‚‚ 2-up view: minimum resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
56 Waveform Monitoring
Blackmagic UltraScope Displays
Blackmagic UltraScope software is a great tool for maintaining accurate broadcast legal video and audio
levels from your Teranex's converted output. Scopes used to monitor your levels include RGB Parade,
Waveform, Vectorscope, Histogram and Audio Metering Display.
RGB Parade Display
RGB parade displays the red, green and blue channels of your converted output. If one of the color
channels appears taller, it usually indicates the presence of a color cast. This may not be desirable and
you may want to try minimizing the color cast during post production using color correction software,
such as Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.
RGB Parade Display
Waveform Display
The waveform is great for seeing your black and white levels and overall image contrast. An image with
good contrast will display information from 0 IRE to 100 IRE. An image with poor contrast will have the
majority of information centered in the display, with little information in the top or bottom areas.
If you are seeing "milky" or gray blacks on your video display, then they will appear elevated above the
0 IRE line. To adjust the black level, press the BLK button on the front of the Teranex and use the rotary
knob to lower the black level. If you lower the black level below 0 IRE you will "crush" the image and
you risk eliminating shadow detail. Adjust the black level and observe the change on both the monitor
and the waveform.
Waveform Display
Likewise, if your highlights appear muted or dull, they will appear below the 100 IRE line. To adjust the
white level, press the GAIN button on the front of the Teranex and use the rotary knob to increase the
white level. If you raise the level above 100 IRE you will "clip" the image and you risk eliminating highlight
detail. Adjust the white level and observe the change on both the monitor and the waveform.
57 Waveform Monitoring
Vectorscope Display
The Vectorscope is useful for monitoring the color balance and saturation of your Teranex’s converted
video output. For instance, if your signal has a dominant green color cast then the majority of image
information will be located towards the green area of the vectorscope. In comparison, an image with a
neutral color balance will have information evenly distributed around the center.
The center of the vectorscope represents zero saturation. The further an object is from the center, the
more saturated it appears. If your material appears under or over saturated, press the SAT button on
your Teranex Processor and use the rotary knob to either increase or decrease saturation.
Vectorscope Display
Teranex's HUE button can be used if the overall image color appears skewed. As you turn the rotary
knob you will see the color information rotate around the vectorscope's center point. Unless the original
image has a dramatic color skew, small adjustments will usually be better.
Histogram Display
Using the Histogram is another way to check image contrast. The horizontal axis represents the luminance
range with black on the left (0 in a 10 bit image) and white on the right (1023 in a 10 bit image). An image
with good contrast will display information covering the entire horizontal axis, whereas a low contrast
image will display information predominantly in the middle. Use your Teranex Processor's BLK and GAIN
button settings to make the necessary adjustments.
Audio Metering Display
Histogram Display
Audio metering display shows you the audio levels from your Teranex Processor. The audio is displayed
in either dBFS or VU format. dBFS is essentially a meter of the overall digital audio signal and is common
on modern digital equipment. The VU meter shows average signal levels, is easy to use and very common
on older equipment.
To monitor your audio levels, watch the VU meter and ensure the levels never peak above 0dB. Peaking
above 0dB means your audio is clipping.
You can also monitor audio phase and balance using the audio metering display.
Audio Metering Display
58 Waveform Monitoring
Error Logging Display
Error Logging records errors in video and audio and is indispensable for unattended operation, such as
during long conversions. Errors may be logged for color, brightness or audio threshold levels as well as
loss of video signal, change of video format or audio silence. After setting the parameters which define
when an error should be logged, you can choose to start or stop error logging, save the log to a file, or
clear the log. These functions can be selected from the buttons in the Error Logging Display or from
the Error Logging pulldown menu.
Errors are recorded against timecode and time of day to make them easy to find. If the timecode is not
present, errors can be found by reviewing the time of day at which they were recorded.
In the Full Screen view, Histogram and Error Logging Displays share the same area of the UltraScope
interface. Select the LOGGING button, below the Histogram Display, to switch to Error Logging Display.
Select the HISTOGRAM button to switch back to the Histogram Display.
From the Histogram Display, select the Logging button to
switch to the Error Logging Display.
In 2-up view, Histogram and Error Logging Displays can be viewed on two panels simultaneously.
Select the START button to commence logging. In Full Screen view, you can switch back to the Histogram
Display and UltraScope will continue to perform error logging until you choose to stop it.
When error logging is being performed, the STOP button replaces the START button. When the STOP
button has been selected, you can choose to START again and any new errors will be appended to the
existing log. When error logging stops, you can choose to SAVE the log to a CSV file or alternatively
CLEAR the log. If no errors have been recorded, the SAVE and CLEAR buttons will not appear. The CSV
file can be analyzed in many applications including spreadsheet and database software.
By default, error logging is performed using the EBU-R103 standard set by the European Broadcasting
Union. This standard is popular worldwide and is commonly used as a template for making new error
logging profiles.

4:3 Letterbox SD Conversion to 16:9 SD or HD
A 4:3 standard definition (SD) source with an letterboxed 16:9 image can be converted to a full 16:9 output
aspect ratio by extracting the 16:9 letterbox and expanding it to a full 16:9 image. The output format
can be SD or HD in the Teranex 2D or 3D, as well as UHD in the Teranex Express.
Step 1. Press the IN button on the front panel.
Step 2. In the ASPECT section, press CCUT.
Step 3. Press the OUT button on the front panel and select the desired output video format.
