HQV Vida VHD1900 Video Chip


IDT® (Integrated Device Technology), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience, today premiers the latest offering from its Hollywood Quality Video™ (HQV®) video processing line. The all new Yamaha Avetage RXA2000 and RXA3000 will incorporate the new chip. The IDT HQV® Vida™ processor , takes the industry-leading Hollywood Quality Video processing technology to a new level of performance, significantly improving the viewing experience for the consumer.

The Vida processor enhances image detail and quality with four-field motion adaptive de-interlacing, multi cadence tracking, expanded 12-bit color processing and detail enhancement. The result transforms standard-definition sources to HD quality and makes HD look even more detailed. Moreover, the device also provides real-time clean up of highly compressed video, reducing compression artifacts of block and mosquito noise from lower-quality sources.

“Quality-conscious HDTV viewers tap into an increasing variety of digital video from internet and cable-satellite providers,” said Richard Doherty, Research Director for the Envisioneering Group. “IDT has demonstrated video enhancement which delivers pixel-popping performance even when viewing popular internet video sites which traditionally look grainy or blotchy on other TVs or PCs.”

The IDT VHD1900 incorporates two new IDT HQV technologies — Auto HQV™ and HQV StreamClean™ — which automatically enhance the incoming image and provide powerful clean-up of source video, allowing the picture to be as crisp and clean as possible.
