Reon-VX HQV Video Processor Adopted for Toshiba's HD DVD Player
Silicon Optix announces that its Reon-VX HQV video processor will be featured in Toshiba's new top-of-the-line HD DVD player, the HD-XA2. HQV's true 1080i-to-1080p HD deinterlacing delivers the sharpest, most detailed HD images possible by employing per-pixel motion-adaptive algorithms and a multidirectional diagonal filter that ensures video free of jaggies. The HQV processing engine also provides per-pixel motion-adaptive noise reduction, detail enhancement, and advanced scaling to deliver premium-quality upconverted SD material.
Toshiba's new high-end HD-XA2 HD DVD player is designed to output 1920x1080p, the highest-definition signal currently available, via High Definition Multimedia Interface, which adds support for Deep Color technology.
The HD-XA2 HD DVD player also incorporates a 297MHz / 12 bit Video DAC with high-quality 4x oversampling for increased bandwidth, for true playback of an HD picture to a video source. The HD-XA2 comes with a Picture Setting function that allows customers to optimize picture quality via settings for color, contrast, brightness, edge enhancement, and block noise, among others. The HD-XA2's 1080p output capability complements Toshiba's Cinema Series Pro LCD TVs, which provide true HD 1080p input capability via HDMI.
HD DVD players support leading-edge efficient video-compression standards, including MPEG-4 AVC and VC-1, as well as MPEG2. To meet the latest advancements in audio/video interfaces connect to HDTV sets via HDMI—the multi-industry-supported, all-digital A/V connection capable of providing the transmission of uncompressed digital video and multichannel audio on a single cable.
The HD-XA2 outputs HD DVD content through the HDMI interface at 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. Through the HDMI interface, standard-definition DVDs can also be upconverted to match the resolution of HD displays. Because the conversion takes place in the player, the signal remains free of digital-to-analog conversion artifacts. Like all other current HD DVD players, the HD-XA2 is backward-compatible so users can continue to enjoy their libraries of current DVD and CD software.
