Considerations when renting a terminal frame

With so many different options available when it comes to terminal frames, it becomes very important to examine just what each one of these offers and how those features relate to your project. Make sure the rental or lease you choose will be able to meet your needs and has all of the features that you want. These are very specialized products, so make sure that someone on your team has the knowledge of how to use the equipment properly to get the best results for your production.

Features of terminal frames

The features of the terminal frames will vary substantially based on the make and the model. Some of the frames on the market are fixed, while others are modular and allow for some customization. Either of these could be a good option depending on your needs, your knowledge, and the production. They are often able to work with a wide range of different types of equipment (again, this will depend on the make and model), including VTR, microphones, studio cameras, satellite feeds, and routers. Some will have an audio limiter, DV transcoding, and more.

How terminal frames work

This type of equipment is most often used in the production or editing terminal, and can be used for broadcasts, as well as for postproduction in the editing bay. The purpose of the device is to make sure that all of the frames and audio are synced properly. However, many of the models on the market have some other abilities as well, including digital noise reduction and digital bandwidth filtering, logo insertion, and more.

About terminal frames

Working on a video production can be very difficult work, so you need to make sure you always have the right equipment on hand. This type of equipment can be very expensive to purchase, so renting is an excellent option, especially when it comes to gear such as terminal frames. These devices can help to synch the audio and video, while keeping a high quality image for the production. They are often used in live broadcasts, but they can be just as useful after you've finished filming scenes.
