"Qdeo refers to a suite of QuietVideo processing technologies that produce quiet and natural video free from noise and artifacts.
Qdeo processing includes three main stages:
* Noise Reduction: Per-pixel noise and compression artifact reduction removing noise inherent in digital video.
* Format Conversion: Per-pixel motion-adaptive 3D de-interlacing and advanced nonlinear scaling transforming the image to the desired resolution while suppressing artifacts like feathering and jaggies.
* Enhancement: 2D Edge Enhancement increasing detail and sensation of depth, Adaptive Contrast Enhancement (ACE) providing larger dynamic range and Intelligent Color Remapping (ICR) rendering rich and vivid images.
Since I am not 100% sure, as a best guess I think those notes are referring to the potential
of processing with the chip.
Not necessarily that those things are always
implemented without choice.
IMHO, based on my limited knowledge (
), both the ABT and Marvell chips are virtually identical with naked reproduction on real world material.
Stress testing and pattern testing may tell a slightly different story though.
QDEO can offer options for an OPPO player that can not be had with the ABT.
There is that "ringing" thingy on ABT, that while it's not contributory to picture degradation of real world viewing, it can be an obstacle that's hard to overcome when trying to ADD picture enhancement like extra detail and/or EE.
Then there is also the NR options that QDEO offers that are also not available with the ABT chip.
So, overall I think it is wise for OPPO to try something different, and ultimately will be better.
Time will tell and we shall see and all that... and please let us know what you may find on your treasure hunt for opinions and reviews of QDEO.
I know there isn't as much info out there for that chip as there is for others.
Other inquiring minds are curious too,
