At the higher end of the market, DVDO also sold the iScan VP50 and VP50 Pro. Originally retailing for thousands, these units are once again. The DVDO iScan VP is a high-definition video processor and A/V hub. This device converts standard or high definition from the user’s DVD Player, VCR, PVR. John checks out the DVDO iScan VP50PRO – a tasty THX Video certified and HDMI enabled video processor.

The image is simply maximized to the best the source can be shown, without adding artifacts to the mix.

The two algorithms definitely behave differently. The unit includes a number of processing features that help maintain signal integrity, including de-interlacing, sharpness controls, RGB adjustments, frame-rate conversion, format routing, and automatic chroma up-sampling.

I need to test this with a lot more sources to be fully convinced that it works. Through the menus, one can control the polarity of each of these two outputs. Audio-Video Hub Use it as a hub to provide audio-video switching that allows you to access any source signal on one display. This is a test DVD that I recorded, composed of the toughest 2: As far as video is concerned, we tested the effects of HDMI 1.

De-interlacing in these cases is usually pretty bad, and a processor can’t really do much to help. While it’s not a complete MPEG artifact removal algorithm the unit still does not support a blocking and macroblocking solutionthis feature works quite nicely in removing the little noises that surround high detail areas, logos, and subtitles, caused by MPEG type compression.

Other presets x, x, x, x, x ALISx, x 2x, x 2x, x, x My typical HD test sequences, composed of the typical mix of Sci fi movies The Fifth Element – Lilu’s birth scene, several Star Isvan sequences produced amazing results. Just like the VP30 add-on, which supports crazy cadences, and idcan a proper lock – so does the VP Since there aren’t any HDMI 1. I would have liked, however, to have a finer control over this feature. Nothing is perfect, however, and the VP50 had a tough time with a Jackie Chan movie that apparently has something strange that causes most de-interlacers to think Film mode is enacted.


The most dvro challenging pieces in my equipment rack are processors, which don’t really have any visible reason for being on the rack. Deinterlacing is a standard feature in projectors and most DVD players, and deinterlacing quality has been improving consistently over the past few years to the point where most projectors do a wonderful job.

Handling of 24 fps is still pending, to be be tested with more devices that provide vddo as an output Sony BD players and receive it as an input Sony projectors.

Since projectors generally look their best when displaying a native resolution signal, this results in a cleaner picture. The Gamma Correction feature is a new addition that gives you the ability to change xvdo gamma settings mostly useful for vp0 or individual color gamma values mostly useful for.

As a processor owner, you are often told to configure your sources to output interlaced signals rather than de-interlaced. Like I said, I am not convinced the difference is night and day, I would say that it’s far closer to optimal than what you would get without a processor in the middle. As a hub, this unit can provide audio-video switching dvdoo eliminates lip sync and allows you to access ddvdo source signal on one display.

How well does this work? The second 12V trigger status can be changed through the output menus. No Longer Available Update Location close. There is one way to take advantage of the new HD audio formats with the VP If you have ever noticed a film where an actor’s words don’t match his lips, this will correct the problem.

This is quite useful when you have no way to provide the original interlaced SDTV source to the video processor. The test sequence was sent to ABT for review. Since the VP50 processes both audio and video, it can slightly delay uscan source’s audio track to better match its video. The VP50’s right rear panel.

Our Vault pages may have some display quirks. With all features enabled the VP50 produces less than 3 frames of delay.


DVDO iScan VP50 Video Processor Review

Please explain the problem you are having. Technically speaking, some of the VP50 Pro features were originally intended for the VP50 hence the lack of a model number increment to something like VP60but could evdo be fitted into the VP50’s more limited hardware specification.

I’m not sure I can really quantify how much better one is from the other, I dbdo only say that the two algorithms are different. This feature, which came out after our last VP50 review essentially tries to correct a common phenomenon: The downside is that audio must be fed through the VP50 to accomplish this processing, and the VP50’s audio connectivity is not nearly as diverse as its video options.

The area where the VP50 “should” shine is i video mode. Go to Home Page. Game modes allow for sub-1 frame delay with edge adaptive processing enabled and 2 frame delay with both edge and motion adaptive processing enabled.

These headphone-like connections allow you to control external equipment, such as opening and closing your front projector’s screen, controlling a motorized anamorphic lens, or even dimming down your ambient lights.

Reviews 0 Write a review zryvrcsq. The anamorphic lens will then squeeze the data down to 2. Test Pattern Generator – Finally, the VP50 incorporates a suite of test patterns to aid you in calibrating your projector. When a Panamorph lens is in use, the processor simply crops off the black lines, and upscales the non-black pixel rows of the source to fully cover the screen.

Subscribe to Receive Articles. This puts the VP50 as the forerunner for SD de-interlacing. Feeding SD isan to such a display, particularly one that has letterbox marks shows clear ringing that is the result of a less than ideal scaling algorithm. A nice addition that users have been asking for in recent years, is an alternate silver front panel for the unit.

This is strange and has been reported to the company.
