I am using a Netstreams distributed HD A/V system, Netstreams claims the unit (MLAV300) can take a HD component signal (uncompressed) and then put it back together near your TV at the other end, via the internet.
So the scenario is this:
You have 6 sources, then you put two DVDO vp-30s inline, with dual connections for all of the sources. The VP-30 can accepts component, DVI, HDMI video and digital coax, optical and HDMI audio. It has both HDMI AND a processed output to component video and coax audio.
From here, you connect a VP-30 into 1 of 2 NetSteam MLAV300 which will accept the VP-30's single component video and single audio output, 1 per TV. This will go into the network and then comes out at the TV at one of two VL100's.
The question, as stated earlier is, will there be ANY processing on a signal that comes out of the VP-30?
The iScan VP30 CAN process these input signals on its respective inputs and output a processed signal over component video:
Component: 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p, 1080i
RGBHV/Component: 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, VGA-SXGA@60Hz
HDMI: 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p, 1080i, VGA-SXGA@60Hz
The one thing to note is that any input HDMI input signal that also has HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) will not be able be output over the component outputs of the VP30. This is a legal issue, not a technical limitation.
