VertigoXmedia is shipping its VxScaler, a module that adds standards conversion to the VertigoXG graphics system. The module can be upgraded in the field.
With VxScaler installed, the VertigoXG can downconvert an HD source to SD, upconvert SD to HD, capture an SD source as an HD clip for inclusion in an HD project, and capture an HD source as a clip in SD or a different standard. The module uses a three-step process that includes motion estimation, de-interlacing, and scaling at 10-bit YUV 4:2:2 to produce high-quality conversion.
