Anchor Bay Technologies Unveils the DVDO® iScan HD+ High-Resolution Video Scaling Engine at the 2004 CEDIA Show
Indianapolis, IN, September 10, 2004 - (Business Wire) - Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc. will exhibit the all-new DVDO® iScan HD+, the company's latest comprehensive audio/video processing hub at the CEDIA show beginning today, September 10 through September 12, in Booth 1560 in the RCA Dome in Indianapolis.
Building on the momentum from the award winning iScan HD, the iScan HD+ adds scaling of high definition sources (720p, 1080i) which come in on DVI, and HDCP support over DVI.
Home theater enthusiasts are presented with many challenges when displaying an image that was originally produced in one resolution and aspect ratio, stored and transmitted in another, and ultimately displayed in a third. The new iScan HD+ is a sophisticated video processor that produces an optimized image in a wide range of resolutions, aspect ratios, and refresh rates, independent of the input format. When using the iScan HD+, a projector or display device is not forced to crop, distort, or further process the image in order to display it. The iScan HD+ can generate an output that exactly matches the native resolution of virtually any LCD or DLP projector, as well as plasma displays and CRTs, producing the clearest, crispest picture possible.
The iScan HD+ incorporates 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.
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+ will be available for shipment to Authorized DVDO Resellers in October 2004.
