Los Gatos, CA–Anchor Bay has selected ADI to distribute its DVDO iScan video processors to installers and contractors throughout North America.
ADI will distribute Anchor Bay’s VP20 and VP50 video processing systems, along with the VS4, an OEM product that provides a four-to-one HDMI switcher. Anchor Bay’s DVDO iScan high-definition video processors scale and deinterlace any standard-definition and high-definition video signal from sources, such as DVD players, to perfectly match the optimum formats (up to 1080p) of high-resolution displays.
“At ADI, we’re taking advantage of the expanding home theater market and its inherent need for high-performance video processing equipment,” said RJ Hirshkind, senior product manager for residential and commercial A/V at ADI. “Our relationship with Anchor Bay helps to ensure our dealers remain on the cutting edge of video processing technology, and raise the standard of excellence in home theater.”
The VP20 features Anchor Bay’s Video Reference Series (VRS) 10-bit Precision Video Scaling II technology that independently scales an image horizontally and vertically to achieve outstanding picture quality for today’s high-resolution video displays.
The VP50 features all the processing power of Anchor Bay’s VRS technologies, including Precision Deinterlacing, which provides five-field motion adaptive and edge adaptive processing for an artifact-free viewing experience; and Progressive Re-Processing (PReP) technology, a breakthrough processing method that reverts the progressive video signal output from source equipment to its original interlaced format, and then converts the interlaced signal to progressive format using Precision Deinterlacing.
“One of our primary goals as a company is to continue reaching out to more installers throughout the country, while also raising awareness of the video processing market,” said Doug Fealtman, vice president general manager at Anchor Bay. “This relationship with ADI allows us to expand our distribution channel to reach more installers and contractors in North America, while providing customers with superb video-processing technologies.”
