The DHD-12 features Runco’s new ViVix II™ digital video processing, with its digital and analog enhancement capability.

Multiple resolution output capability includes 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080i, as well as 1024 x 768, 1280 x 768, 1366 x 768 and 1280 x 1024, all with multiple aspect ratios. The DHD-12 also incorporates proprietary 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown processing for maximum quality at both 50Hz and 60Hz playback from programming originating on film, and videophile-grade edge enhancement. To protect against 4:3 image burns when used with plasmas, the DHD-12 provides gray sidebars to greatly reduce or eliminate the possibility of causing burn-in damage to the display.

TERK Technologies has just launched the AMP-15.

The big hurdle for the creation of more native HDTV content on TV has been the cost of the cameras and the production studios. While not necessarily up to the ultimate broadcast standards for HDTV, JVC has introduced a $3,500 camcorder that can record 720p HDTV. Editing is strangely done in the Windows XP environment with bundled software– not Macintosh which is more of the video editing industry’s computer of choice. The JVC GR-HD1 camcorder gives home video enthusiasts a way to get personally recorded content to their HDTV systems and even archived on their D-VHS VCRs which are also sold by JVC and can playback prerecorded HDTV movies. The GR-HD1 doesn’t always need record in 720. It can be set to record in the standard 480i format which is more compatible with TVs. The recorder hooks up to computers and other devices via Firewire.

Accurate Imaging Technologies made headlines at CES with their latest CRT-based projection system that uses technology that keeps the video signal completely in the digital domain from DVD to the projector. The Digital Pathway concept avoids the constant up and down, analog to digital to analog, conversions at every stage of the video chain, which can degrade the overall picture quality. This Digital Pathway concept makes it possible for an entry-level 8-inch CRT projector to surpass the picture quality often associated with 9-inch models using very expensive outboard processors. Using their $37,000 system, which consists of an 8-inch CRT projector with their new internal scaler card (no outboard video processor AKA: “a line doubler”), an exclusive DVD player with a pure digital output, Accurate Imaging’s off-site exhibit had critics talking.
