Snell & Wilcox rollout Quasar HD upconverter

March 21, 2006

Snell & Wilcox has introduced Quasar, an HDTV upconverter that integrates motion compensation technology.

The new Quasar platform uses motion estimation techniques based on the company’s Ph.C technology to produce clear, sharp high-definition outputs from a variety of standard definition inputs.

Developed from the ground up, the compact, 1-RU Quasar combines three Snell & Wilcox technologies, including motion estimation, HD conversion, and Prefix compression pre-processing.

At the heart of Quasar is motion estimation technology based on Snell & Wilcox’s Ph.C. It is equally adept at preserving high-frequency detail in action-packed images.
