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.

DVDO iScan VP High Definition Video Processor MM B&H Photo

Upgradeable It offers the ability to accept future upgrades via software updates. This is quite useful when you have no way to provide the original interlaced SDTV source to the video processor. It still needs some work audio glitches, aspect ratio, some features like the overscanbut it’s probably the best deal for the ddo at this point in time, particularly for anyone needing HD de-interlacing.

Reviews 0 Write a review zryvrcsq. Scaling is good, but I do find it a tad soft and would hope that ABT invests more research into including a scaling algorithm that is sharper, particularly when scaling up i to p.

See any errors on this page? For those of you using anamorphic lenses or perhaps a 2. As beta versions were released, a continual improvement in the unit’s picture quality and stability were clearly noticeable. The VP50 can deinterlace and upscale a signal with less than three frames of delay. Write a review zryvrcsq.

However, ABT should start investing in a better scaling algorithm in the very near future. The Prep feature is one innovation I found very interesting. There is one way to take advantage of the new HD audio formats with the VP The processor also has the ability to accept future upgrades via software updates. Since projectors generally look their best when displaying a native resolution signal, this results in a cleaner vp0.

With fixes like the Faroudja DCDi algorithm, video was barely edible – but add something a bit more complex like 2: And when HDMI 1. The second 12V trigger status dvro be changed through the output menus. As the Pioneer plasma supports 72 Hz, I tried this, but saw no real benefit projector owners will probably see a slightly better image with less judder. There’s a generous number of Genlocked source locked – preventing lost or repeated frames rates dgdo each source, more than enough.


If we add HDTV to the mix, we have to talk about i-top processing.

The downside is that audio must be fed through the VP50 to accomplish this processing, and the VP50’s audio connectivity is not nearly as diverse as its video options. For those unfamiliar with the VP50, see my original review in January of this year.

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. With regards to video inputs, the VP50 is no slouch. If you wanted to change a The area where the VP50 “should” shine is i video mode.

In my tests, at the Low setting, this produced quite adequate results and did give an apparently sharper image. I would expect that the reason behind this is that most i content has fairly good cadence locks. It can be set to either off, on, or it can be linked to Lens.

It supports p and offers HDMI 1. 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.

For those with projectors that will not change the aspect ratio of material sent over an HDMI link, this is a life-saving feature that enables the use of an anamorphic lens for 2. The VP50’s left rear panel. Update Unrecognized Zip Code.

The unit includes a number of processing features that help maintain signal integrity, including de-interlacing, sharpness controls, RGB adjustments, frame-rate conversion, format routing, and automatic chroma up-sampling. I personally believe that there are two types of dgdo owners.

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. As far iscn video is concerned, we tested the effects of HDMI 1. The two algorithms definitely behave differently. The VP50 Pro also adds two 12V trigger options. Something that ABT has not improved upon in quite a while is the scaling algorithm.

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. The most visibly challenging pieces in my equipment rack are processors, which don’t really have any visible reason for being on the rack.

Handling of 24 fps is still pending, to be be tested with more devices that provide it as an output Sony BD players and receive it as an input Sony projectors. The image that was processed by the VP50 was cleaner and more attractive than the direct connection from disc player to projector. ABT should hire a designer to get out of the rut – practical boxes are out and good looking pieces are dvvdo. I did not need to change to custom timing, but this would be the point where a more experienced user could adjust the VP50’s output timing to ensure everything is ok.

With all features enabled the VP50 produces less than 3 frames of ixcan. Consider a p projector equipped with this device. There are many DVD players, including high end ones or even STBs, that can only give you a p or p signal, which was already de-interlaced by another processor.

PReP decodes a progressive-scan signal, essentially re-interlacing it, and then applies the VP50’s superior deinterlacing. The NDA has been lifted, but the official 1. Test Pattern Generator – Finally, the VP50 incorporates a suite of test patterns to aid you in calibrating your projector. I guess I’m old fashioned, but I prefer to learn the remote control button features directly from a remote when possible.
