The scaling engine processes the selected input signal and delivers an HDMI output that is compliant with version 1.2 protocols. An integrated HDMI/DVI/HDCP receiver is central to the processor along with 3 -D motion adaptive de -interlacers. The 3:2 pull -down, 2:2 pull -down detection/recovery and 3 -D noise reduction complete the superior video signal processing capability.

Audio inputs are provided for all sources and follow the video input selected. The HDMI output has embedded audio. An additional SPDIF audio output is provided for ease of connection to existing audio systems. Both digital and analog audio processing is supported and audio delays of up to 150ms can be introduced to ensure lip sync.
