Modified dvd players with SDI output are here. But what about projectors with SDI input ? The new Infocus LS 110 has FLI 2200 (Faroudja) inside.

This chip can accept digital signal (D1) . So theoricaly it would be possible to feed the chip inside the PJ with D1, no more D/A & A/D converters ?

Just an idea...

Sorry for bad english i'm French!!

Best regards

SDI out of a dvd player carries an interlaced digital signal... You don't want that going to your projector. There are other SDI signals but none on consumer electronics (yet)... they're usually found in pro HDTV production equipment.


The true high-def digital signal path give the current state of technology would be from your source (DVD player for example) SDI-out -> SDI-input on Digital Video Processor/Scaler -> DVI-D out at some high resolution (i.e.: 1366x768) to the DVI-D input on your projector or to a DVI-D -> RGBHV converter box next to the projector if you don't have a DVI-D input on it.


The only caveat to this setup is that you can only run DVI-D about 9m. SDI has a much longer line length capability, but it does not have the bandwidth capability of DVI-D (high resolutions)


There are converter boxes that will do the DVI-D -> analog RGB conversion that will be available in the US in a matter of weeks for less than $400. Unknown at this point whether they will be simply pass-through or fixed resolution converters.
