I'm reading some reviews on the D2v just for craps and giggles, and was wondering if the statement below is just marketing hype. How much distinguishable video improvement does the VXP processor offer for a blu-ray?
Can you D2v owners honestly tell the difference?
Well aware of these trends, Anthem (which is a division of Paradigm Electronics) has created what is in essence a next-generation D2 controller, called the D2V. The D2V addresses all of the requirements we outlined above.
Specifically, the D2V provides:
1) Eight HDMI inputs instead of four, with two HDMI outputs.
2) An updated VXP digital image processor said to provide professional-grade, fully adaptive deinterlacing, adaptive 3D noise reduction, mosquito noise reduction, block artifact reductions, adaptive detail enhancement featuring sharpness and texture enhancement with overshoot control, and adaptive contrast enhancement.
3) Two dual-core DSP engines delivering a combined 800 MIPS (million instructions per second) of processing power, provide onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master audio, plus support for 24-bit/192kHZ PCM audio inputs for up to 7.1 channels.
