Anchor Bay Launches Industrys First HDMI 1.3-Enabled Video Processor With New VRS Technology

New VP50PRO Features Mosquito Noise Reduction, Fine Detail Enhancement, and Edge Enhancement Technologies

LOS GATOS, Calif. — Aug. 13, 2007 — Anchor Bay, a leading supplier of video processing systems and video processing semiconductors (ASICs), today announced the world’s first video processor for home theater systems to utilize HDMI 1.3 receiver/transmitter chips, the DVDO iScan VP50PRO. As the new flagship video processor in the DVDO iScan family, the VP50PRO also offers ISF ccc certification and new VRS Video Reference Series technologies.

The DVDO iScan VP50PRO marks the debut of three new Anchor Bay VRS technologies, Mosquito Noise Reduction, and Fine Detail Enhancement and Edge Enhancement, which greatly improve the quality of compressed and low-resolution content coming from STBs, DVRs, DVD, IPTV, and other digital media devices when viewed on high-resolution/high-definition displays.

Like the award-winning VP50, the VP50PRO also features 10-bit Precision Deinterlacing, 10-bit Precision Video Scaling up to 1080p, PReP (Progressive Re-Processing), Progressive Cadence Detection, and RightRate VRS technologies to maximize picture quality.

The VP50PRO is the first video processor to use HDMI 1.3 receiver/transmitter chips that allow users to connect other HDMI-compliant 1.3 devices that support high-definition audio formats and Deep Color, available on some newer sources like HD-DVD, Blu-Ray, and PS3. This capability allows the VP50PRO to provide customers with years of service as new source devices with this standard start to emerge.

For added convenience, the processor’s two programmable 12V triggers provide seamless control over such devices as projectors, screens, lifts, drapes, anamorphic lenses, and much more. In addition, the VP50PRO offers ISF ccc certification, which gives ISF calibrators the proper controls to provide their customers with optimal settings for daytime and nighttime viewing while maintaining picture accuracy regardless of the ambient light in the room.

A module with two SD/HD-SDI inputs will also be available for the VP50PRO, extending its capabilities to broadcast, pre/post-production, and prosumer applications.

“Having the VP50PRO at the heart of any high-definition video processing center guarantees customers a stunning, one-of-a-kind viewing experience,” said Craig Soderquist, CEO at Anchor Bay. “As the world’s first video processor to be HDMI 1.3 enabled, the VP50PRO offers the finest video processing image quality available today, and is creating the standard for next-generation source devices. With the addition of our exclusive mosquito noise reduction and fine detail edge enhancement technologies, customers can expect the best possible performance from their high-resolution displays.”

The VP50PRO will be shipping in September 2007.
