Why bother buying an SDI DVD player and SDI input card, when I can use WinDVD? Again, a very valid question. The answer hinges on many factors, of varying importance to each videophile. First, SDI appears to me to have a better image than WinDVD and the other software players. Second, SDI should have smoother video, especially on pans. Third, on video source materials and on improperly mastered materials, the DScaler video processor discussed above is superior to the software players.
