It remains to be seen what player manufacturers (other than Philips) will do with this chip. Besides the onboard scaling abilities, it also has Faroudja's "True Life Enhancer" circuitry, which may offer some picture improvement over the 2200.

The biggest difference between the 2200 and 2300 is the 2300's ability to scale to higher resolutions. It is used in the InFocus ScreenPlay 7200 HD2 DLP projector for this (and other) purposes. The 7200 is the first proj. to use the 2300.
In a standard, non-scaling DVD player ithe 2300 is used for deinterlacing to 480p, just like the 2200. I understand the Philips 963 is the first DVD player to use the 2300 for this purpose.
