I thought I'd throw this in to the mix.. General description of the Video DAC onboard:
The ADV7304A is a digital to analog encoder for Standard Definition and/or High Definition [525p, 625p, 1080i, 720p, etc] video from Analog Devices.
The ADV7304A converts any 10-Bit YCrCb High Definition and/or Standard Definition Video in NTSC, PAL [B, D, G, H, I, M, N, PAL-60] into YPrPb or RGB analog component High Definition video and/or Standard Definition CVBS, S-Video, YUV or RGB component video. It is also possible to input High Definition RGB data in 4:4:4 format, outputs being RS170 and RS343A compatible.
Component High Definition video outputs are compatible with EIA770.1, EIA770.2 and EIA770.3. Standard Definition supports YUV BetaCam, MII, SMPTE/EBU N10, SMPTE 170M NTSC and ITU-R.BT 470 PAL output formats.
The ADV7304A consists of six NSVâ„¢ 14-Bit Sigma-Delta DACs. Oversampled outputs are available for Standard Definition [8x at 108MHz], Progressive Scan [4x at 108 MHz] and HDTV [2x at 148.5 MHz].
Programmable features include a test pattern generator for HD and SD, YCrCb to RGB matrix, Gamma Correction, Adaptive Filter Control, Sharpness Filter Control, Digital Noise Reduction, multiple Luma and Chroma filters for SD, Luma SSAF with programmable gain/attenuation, separate Pedestal on component and CVBS/S-Video, VBI, an Undershoot Limiter, Color Control.
The ADV7304A provides CGMS-A [HD], CGMS/WSS [SD], Closed Captioning [SD]. Furthermore the ADV7304A incorporates the Macrovision Anticopy Algorithm for 625p, 525p and SD video.
