Video processing to 1080p just got a little better—more movie-like, according to manufacturer Anchor Bay.

The company has announced a free software upgrade for its DVDO iScan VP50 video processor that allows the system to produce a 1080p-24 output for any standard- or high-definition input. This creates an artifact-free, theater-like viewing experience, and is suggestively called “Film Technology” by Anchor Bay.

The feature is available as a software upgrade for the VP50 and is also scheduled for integration into Anchor Bay’s forthcoming ABT2010 video processing chip. The v1.04 “Film Technology” software upgrade is available to Anchor Bay’s customers as a free download on its web site, using either a serial or USB connection from the PC to the VP50.

With the upgrade, the VP50 is the industry’s first video processor with the ability to take all standard- and high-definition input signals, interlaced or progressive, and output them at 1080p-24, 1920x1080 pixel frames displayed at 24 frames per second, according to Anchor Bay. The company’s PReP and Progressive Cadence Detection, enables the products to process interlaced and progressive signals correctly, recreating the original 24 frames that existed in the source from the 60 frames that the content is encoded in for a smooth, high-quality, high-resolution display, says Anchor Bay.
