I heard from a friend that the Pearl does proper inverse telecine?

So a video processor would not be needed for 1080p24 output from a 1080i60 signal?

From Greg Rogers Widscreen Review article (Issue 115, December 2006 p 44)


"The VPL-VW50 includes film-mode (inverse-telecine) and motion adaptive deinterlacing for standard-definition and high definition video...The 1080i inverse-telecine deinterlacing was also rock solid. It was perfect...."


Hope that helps-

The Pearl's IVTC processing is pretty good.


That having been said, while it is able to IVTC to reassemble the full progressive frames, it continues to display at 60Hz with a 3:2 cadence.


Thus, to get a true multiple-of-24 display from the Pearl, you must feed it 24p.

Yep, the Pearl is really good at de-interlacing NTSC.


PAL, on the other hand, is really, REALLY bad. In fact it is so bad that I have to have my old iScan pro connected to keep me from going nuts. I suspect that there is no IVTC for PAL based material.


Does anyone know if it does IVTC on PAL based HDTV material (if [email protected] is considered PAL)?
