San Jose, CA–(April 24, 2007)–Silicon Optix, the leader in programmable video processors, announced today that Onkyo has significantly raised the bar for video performance in A/V receivers with the addition of the Reon-VX HQV video processor in two of their models. Onkyo’s TX-SR875 has a MRSP of $1,699 and will ship in June, while Onkyo’s TX-NR905 has a MRSP of $2,099 and will ship in August.
“We are going to shake up the receiver market with our new line of products. One of the key additions is HQV processing.

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 sophisticated multidirectional diagonal filter that ensures video free from jagged edges.
