This is inaccurate...My Lumagen VisionHDP upscales and deinterlaces all scan rates to 1080p24 or 1080p60.
I believe what Josh is referring to is the ability to perform cadence detection on progressive sources, not just interlaced ones. (If you look at the post he originally responded to this becomes clear.) This allows DVDO products to perform IVT from formats like 480p60 and 720p60 to 1080p24. Note that he's not talking about simple frame rate conversion from 60 Hz to 24 Hz, but rather true IVT from 60 Hz progressive formats with 3:2 pulldown to 24 Hz. (The DVDO processors can do the same with 50 Hz progressive to 25 Hz as well, by the way.)
At time I developed this technology -- about 2 years ago -- there was no one else doing it, including Silicon Optix, Gennum and Lumagen. While I suppose it's possible that they've done this in the meantime, I have yet to hear of it or see any confirmation of it.
Just to be clear here: You're claiming that your Lumagen HDP will convert a 720p60 source with 3:2 pulldown to 108p24, showing each original film frame exactly once?
