At the higher end of the market, DVDO also sold the iScan VP50 and VP50 Pro. Originally retailing for thousands, these units are once again. The DVDO iScan VP is a high-definition video processor and A/V hub. This device converts standard or high definition from the user’s DVD Player, VCR, PVR. John checks out the DVDO iScan VP50PRO – a tasty THX Video certified and HDMI enabled video processor.

Picture quality PQ on all of these inputs is exceptionally clear, and I have not seen a particular problem with those inputs. The advantages are clear, oscan the main disadvantage was recent findings that in some combinations of sources and receivers, there were a few issues like audio dropouts, noise bursts, and other problems.
First, vvdo set the display to native rate dot by dot and used the VP50’s built-in test patterns ten of which I designed to ensure that perfect matching was enacted.
To be fully honest, the verdict is still out. In practice, the PReP feature is useful for any progressive signal, not just those from devices with sloppy deinterlacing. Universal AC mains input: The VP50 added HD processing to the mix — capable of de-interlacing i, as well as cadences in p that could be utilized towards generating genlocked outputs to the original 24fps frame rate. And when HDMI 1. De-interlacing in these cases is usually pretty bad, and a processor can’t really do much to help.
This is quite useful when you have no way to provide the original interlaced SDTV source to the video processor.
Of course, given a less rigorous scaling ratio e. The only way to get the unit to stop combing was to put it in Game mode. When using an interlaced signal from i up through ithe VP50 uses edge, source, and motion-adaptive deinterlacing to eliminate jaggies and other motion artifacts common to interlaced signals.
Vp550 would have liked, however, to have a finer control over this feature.
For those isscan you using anamorphic lenses or perhaps a 2. This would have allowed us to use the unit to improve display calibration from good to perfect, albeit with a reduced color range i.
The most visibly challenging pieces in my equipment rack are processors, which isvan really have any visible reason for being on the rack. Both perform the same. I guess I’m old fashioned, but I prefer to learn the remote control button features directly from a remote when possible. The first are the practical users that hide the unit, along with other black anodized equipment, in the back of the room and set to show absolutely no visible lighting.
No Longer Available Update Location close. When a Panamorph lens is in use, the processor simply crops off the black lines, and upscales the non-black pixel rows of the source to fully cover the screen.
For time-sensitive applications like video games, “Game Mode” cuts this time down even further. This is strange and has been reported to the company.
I did vpp50 need to change to custom timing, but isscan would be the point where a more experienced user could adjust the VP50’s output timing to ensure everything is ok. The processor also has the ability to accept future upgrades via software updates. A lot has happened since the VP30 was initially released. My main annoyance with the custom input aspect ratio was the inability to assign custom aspect ratios to buttons on the original remote.
Feeding SD content to such a display, particularly one that has letterbox marks shows clear ringing that is the result of a less than ideal scaling algorithm. Once native rate mapping had been tested and I calibrated the display, it was noticeable that the VP50 needed a slightly elevated brightness setting on its analog and digital inputs.
Processors like the Lumagen HDQ ring far less given the same input and output conditions. Our Vault pages may have some display quirks.
I personally believe that there are two types of processor owners. I’m still convinced, of course, that processors should get the source material as closely as possible to the original content i. Please explain the problem you are having. This filter did produce unwanted artifacts quite quickly; however the combination of a positive EE filter and a negative FD filter often counteract each other, resulting in quite nice results.
