DVDO iScan™ HD+ Now Shipping - High Resolution Video Scaling Engine

The DVDO iScan™ HD+ sets a new standard for upconverting, cross-converting and even downconverting all your video sources.

Campbell, CA (PRWEB) November 28, 2004 - - Building on the momentum from the award -winning iScan™ HD, the iScan HD+ adds scaling of high definition sources (720p, 1080i), and HDCP support over DVI. It utilizes Anchor Bay Technology's Precision Video Scaling™ technology, and incorporates other digital video and audio technologies such as Automatic Chroma Upsampling Error Correction AutoCUE -C™ and Precision AV Lipsync.


The DVDO iScan™ HD+ sets a new standard for upconverting, cross -converting and even downconverting all your video sources. Whether it's your VCR outputting 480i, your DVD player at 480p, or your Set -top -box at 720p or 1080i, the iScan™ HD+ will scale the output to perfectly match the optimum resolution of your display - 720p, 1080i, or any user -defined resolution up to 1080p including many preset resolutions (1366 x 768, 1280 x 720, etc.) for popular projectors and display panels. It is HDCP compliant over DVI, and also accepts your legacy 480i/480p analog sources.

In addition to providing greatly enhanced picture quality, the iScan HD+ acts as a hub for all AV source devices. It accepts up to nine discrete video and 4 digital audio inputs, with 2 video and 2 audio outputs. This allows seamless connection of DVD players, satellite receivers, HDTV receivers, digital video recorders, video game consoles, VCRs, Laser Disc players, and PC video directly to the iScan HD+, which delivers high -definition quality video to virtually all display types, while also handling switching and synchronization of digital audio streams.

The iScan HD+ functions as your complete A/V hub, providing simultaneous audio/video switching with automatic video upconversion/processing.

Denon Electronics recently selected DVDO technology for their upcoming product introduction of their latest flagship DVD player, the DVD 5910, and this same scaling technology is available today for all sources via the iScan HD+.
