Silicon Optix Launches High-Definition Version of Its Popular HQV Benchmark DVD

Silicon Optix, the leader in programmable video processors, announced today that the high-definition version of its HQV Benchmark DVD is now available to consumers. The test disc is available in both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats for an MSRP of $20, and can be ordered from http://www.hqv.com. HD HQV Benchmark lets anyone objectively evaluate the picture quality of high-definition products, including displays, HD DVD and Blu-ray players, A/V receivers, and projectors.

“For the first time, consumers will be able to test the high-definition performance of their products to make sure they live up to the manufacturers’ claims,” said Jordan Du Val, Silicon Optix’s VP of Marketing. “The HD HQV Benchmark is a perfect companion to our very successful standard-definition HQV Benchmark, which tests a product’s ability to upconvert standard-definition material.

“The HD HQV Benchmark is already being used by journalists worldwide as a trusted source for product reviews. It’s a must-have for anyone considering an HD purchase, or for those who have already purchased and want to test the capabilities of their existing gear,” continued Du Val.

The HD HQV Benchmark begins with an introduction, an overview of the tests, and an explanation of how to use the included scorecard to assess any product like a pro.

The HD HQV Benchmark includes tests for noise, video resolution loss, “jaggies,” and film resolution loss–all recorded in 1080i video. The resolution test is used to determine if a player or display properly deinterlaces 1080i sources, the most common format for video-based content seen on broadcast and cable networks’ HD programming.

The HD HQV Benchmark is now available in both HD DVD and Blu-ray editions at http://www.hqv.com for a suggested retail price of $20 (USD) each. The SD (NTSC) version is also available for $20 (USD).
