Interlacing is a video technique often used in traditional TV broadcasts that combines two separate fields to create a single frame. This helps videos to look smoother, especially in cases where there's limited bandwidth. It does this by swiftly switching between these two fields, displaying them in rapid succession to create a full image that seems to contain more motion and detail.

Castr's transcoder feature supports "deinterlacing", which is the process of converting interlaced video feeds into progressive formats. Progressive video formats display all lines of each frame in sequence, which makes them ideal for computer displays, modern TVs, and online streaming platforms. This conversion is crucial for ensuring compatibility across various digital platforms and enhancing the viewing experience by providing a smoother and clearer picture, especially for fast-moving scenes.

Castr's transcoder also offers the capability to convert video feeds from progressive to interlaced formats. This feature is particularly useful when the content needs to be compatible with systems or standards that require interlaced video.

By supporting both conversion processes, Castr's transcoder ensures maximum flexibility in video format handling, making it possible to cater to a wide range of broadcasting and streaming needs.
