Does anyone have experince with mediatek who could shed some light for me. I am curious about deinterlacing(bob vs weave), diagonal filtering, and noise reduction.
Thanks for the info.
We've been talking about the Mediatek MT1389 series, used for its primary purpose of MPEG decoding. The chip does indeed have a deinterlacer (and scaler?) built in, but it's not on the same level as the Realta, VXP, ABT, National AVC2510, Faroudja 23x0, SiI504, and so forth. As far as imbedded deinterlacers in SoC processors go, it's one of the better ones, but you can still do much better if you're willing to pay for it.
