This is the definitive spec sheet on the DVDO iScan VP30:


The iScan VP30 is a high-definition video processor and A/V hub that converts standard or high definition from your DVD player, VCR, PVR, HD set top box, game console, or PC to any output resolution between VGA and 1080p, including popular HDTV resolutions such as 720p and 1080i.

VRS Precision Video Scaling II technology by ABT - 10-bit Scaling with Enhanced Sharpness Control


Motion and source adaptive video deinterlacing for NTSC (3:2 and 2:2 pulldown; video) and PAL/SECAM (2:2 pulldown; video) sources (SiI504)

Upgradeable to the VRS Precision Deinterlacing Card (ABT102)


SD(480i/576i) Source, Motion and Edge Adaptive Deinterlacer

o Five-field motion adaptive deinterlacing
o Edge adaptive processing to produce smooth diagonal edges
o Three frame video processing delay (Max)
o Game Modes with very low latency (sub-1 frame delay/2 frame delay with Edge adaptive processing)

Arbitrary cadence detection (any:any) to detect non-standard cadences in input signals.
o Reliable 2:2 pull-down detection for 50Hz countries
o Detection of 2:2 to/from 3:2 crossfades and out of phase 3:2 crossfades
o Detection of multiple source types within a frame for example video titles over film
o Bad edit detection and compensation to minimize artifacts caused by sequence breaks in film content

Well, I will say two things:


1) The Front Panel Display is actually a 2 line, 20 character display


2) This is pre-production unit in the picture, there will be no imperfections in the machining on the production units.

I take it this is the new DVDO that is to compete with the Dragonfly. As I am about to finalize my new setup and start buying stuff, I am KEENLY interested. I need a box that will handle two DVI inputs, at least one component input, outputs 1400 x 1050 @ 60hz on DVI or HDMI, and has competent deinterlacing of SD video and film sources.


That's my wish list.

Is this a DVDO HD+ with HDMI? Or is there more too it? Does it have HQV/Realta? Motion adaptive processing? So many damn questions and no answers 'til Monday. C'mon throw us a bone.

, but here is a better picture of the front panel of the iScan VP30:

Your answer, Kraig.



But even I know it's more than "just an Iscan HD+ with HDMI." (Although not much more.)


Isn't there another thread around here talking about WSR's 100th issue having some ad for the supposed hardware this thing will have? Either Gennum or Faroudja, etc.?

Josh,


Can you tell us anything about when we should expect to be able to buy the product? I'm not sure if you are saying that it will be available this month or not, but I'm hoping that an announcement this much before CEDIA means availability soon.

Rumor is it will not use the Realta chip and it will compete with the other next gen scalers. One can deduce it will have 1080i processing.

Aside: Your avatar and caption literally made me LMAO. Kind of scary, but mostly downright hilarious!

I've not seen anything definitive as to what this new VP30 has/does. The only thing I can recall is them saying the algorithms are ABT:

Josh,


Can you comment in vague general terms (yes/no) if there will be an upgrade program for existing HD/HD+ users as you've done in the past?

keenan,


Hmmmm....clearly someone switched my regular leaded coffee with decaf.


Monday will actually be good timing for me -- I was going to send off my HD to JVB for an HD+ upgrade next Tuesday, but perhaps now I won't. It's going to be a long weekend of waiting.


Thanks!


-John
