XVP-1801-DC HD/SD Down Converter/ARC & Frame Sync

The Densité Series XVP-1801-DC offers high quality downconversion with aspect ratio conversion and frame synchronization. It offers many advanced features, including AFD support and background keying, with optional 16 channel embedded audio processing. The superior conversion quality of the XVP at both 50 and 59.94 Hz stems from multiple technologies, including advanced motion adaptive de-interlacing and anti-ringing. To ensure that downconverted television is presented in the correct aspect ratio when aired, the XVP module supports AFD (Active Format Description) SMPTE-2016. This provides automatic aspect ratio control using embedded control commands, and this prevents on-air aspect ratio...

FEATURES

  • Downconverter with frame sync
