HoustonPBS relies on Algolith for upconversion, noise reduction
HoustonPBS has selected the Algolith Algogear XVC-1011-UC upconverter and noise reduction solution to assist in its transition from SD to HD.
The public broadcaster selected the Algogear solution for its advanced image quality, flexibility and long life expectancy. The unit delivers the technology of the Algogear upconverter combined with the company’s Algogear VNR-1002-MD noise reducer.
This solution provides best-in-class conversion from SD to HD video formats, allowing signals to be cleaned up and processed before being upconverted. The combination of both functions on one card offers a new level of integration.
The XVC-1011-UC provides advanced deinterlacing, directional content-adaptive scaling and adaptive detail enhancement for superior conversion quality.
