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.

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.

DVDO iScan Vp50 Model Mm605 Video Processor

No Longer Available Update Location close. At the time of our last article the iScan VP30 was DVDO’s highest end video processor and required the ABTD Precision Deinterlacing Add-in Card to produce the less than 2 frames of lag while still applying edge and motion adaptive processing, deinterlacing, and resolution scaling. There are many DVD players, including high end ones or even STBs, that can only give you a p or p signal, which was already de-interlaced by another processor.

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 not 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 can only say that the two algorithms are different.

Subscribe to Receive Articles. However, ABT should start investing in a better scaling algorithm in the very near future. To be fully honest, the verdict is still out. Processors like the Lumagen HDQ ring far less given the same input and output conditions. This puts the VP50 as the forerunner for SD de-interlacing. Our Idcan pages may have some display quirks. It should be noted that iscxn unit senses 3: I would have liked, however, to have a finer control over this feature.

This noise artifact often appears like little mosquitoes surrounding these objects, hence the colorful name. Both perform the same.

It vo50 needs vddo better box design to go along with it for those users. Output profiles are very useful and can be assigned to be recalled on a per-input and even per-format basis. This device is THX certified. Vpp50 know of at least one case a scaler by Key Digital where users revolted against the typical black anodized design of a processor and simply redesigned it and started producing alternate front panel designs.


Picture quality PQ on all of these inputs is exceptionally clear, and I have not seen a particular problem with those inputs. But the VP50’s processing takes image quality up a few extra notches, resulting in a crystal-clear picture with astounding detail. The VP50 is no exception, and it contains a single analog audio input I would have preferred at least one moretwo optical digital and one coaxial digital audio input, as well as the ability to decode audio standard formats only, not the HDMI 1.

The two algorithms definitely behave differently. I would expect that the reason behind this is that most i content has fairly good cadence locks.

The other kind puts everything right in front dvo everyone can ask why that person let’s use me as an example has fifteen different boxes doing what most people only need four pieces of equipment to do.

Input Switching – The VP50 is capable of auto-detecting and switching inputs on both audio and video. The VP50 Pro also adds two 12V trigger options. PReP decodes a progressive-scan signal, essentially re-interlacing it, and dvco applies the VP50’s icsan deinterlacing.

I personally believe that there are two types of processor owners. There’s a generous number of Genlocked source locked – preventing lost or repeated frames rates for each source, more than enough. Many people already have a terrible DVD player that they want hooked up and improved upon. Dvdp is strange and has been reported to the company.

The VP50 added HD processing to the mix — capable of de-interlacing i, as well as cadences in p that could be utilized towards generating genlocked outputs to the original 24fps frame rate.

DVDO iScan VP50 Video Processor Review

The VP50 can deinterlace and upscale a signal with less than three frames of delay. Universal AC mains input: The image is simply maximized to the best the source can be shown, without adding artifacts to the mix. For those with projectors that will not change the aspect ratio of material sent over an HDMI link, this is a life-saving feature that enables the use of an anamorphic lens for 2.


As the VP50 does not have 5. See any errors on this page? Prep was basically designed to overcome this core issue. This is quite useful when you have no way to provide the original interlaced SDTV source to the video processor.

Once native rate mapping had been tested and I calibrated the display, it was noticeable that the VP50 needed a slightly elevated brightness setting on its analog and digital inputs.

YCC so called “Enhanced Gamut” was not isczn supported. I did not need to change to custom timing, but this would be the point where a more experienced user could adjust the VP50’s output timing to ensure everything is ok. With the sources currently available HDMI 1. The Gamma Correction feature is a new addition that gives you the ability isdan change global gamma settings mostly useful for projectors or individual color gamma values mostly useful for.

Extra details, brought out by the new processing were easily seen. Through the menus, one can control the polarity of each of these two outputs.

Consider a p projector equipped with this device. The second 12V trigger status can be changed through the output menus. Deinterlacing is a standard feature in projectors and most DVD players, and deinterlacing quality has been improving uscan over the past few years to the point where most projectors do a wonderful job. First, we set the display to native rate dot by dot and used the VP50’s built-in test patterns ten of which I designed to ensure that perfect matching was enacted.

In addition to HDMI 1. Comparing the mosquito removal of the two companies is quite difficult.

Committed gamers who want their games to look their best even the old i consoles and play lag free on their high-end home theaters will appreciate the VP50’s dedicated deinterlacing capabilities. ABT has pioneered the use of adaptive dvdi inputs for their products.
