Miranda Technologies has introduced the XVP-811i up-, down- and crossconverter, which features automatic, frame-accurate aspect ratio conversion using embedded signals based on the Active Format Description (AFD) standard.
AFD aspect ratio data can be embedded in a signal using Miranda interfaces and can be maintained throughout conversion processes to ensure optimal viewing in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios without undesirable postage stamp ARC effects.
The XVP-811i accepts HD or SD input and provides continuous and simultaneous HD and SD outputs. The interface automatically detects the input format and performs the conversion required to maintain a consistent output format on the HD and SD outputs.
Miranda’s XVP-811i also offers 5.1-to-2.0 downmixing for easy audio monitoring of multichannel audio, along with Dolby E metadata insertion.
