IC processor developed by Faroudja®, and first used by Sony, which will up scale and up convert all video signals (less than 1080p) to 1080p via HDMI3. This chipset corrects image jaggedness; reduces block noise and reproduces true to original colors. The end result is a beautiful and smooth high definition image.
Component and S-video sources can be down converted to lower resolution outputs, thus customizing video connectivity to home theater requirements from a single source. Also, both receivers can take HD sources from component video and down convert the signal for use with composite or S-Video ouputs. This is ideal for distributing video through multiple rooms with less wires.
The ES 7.1 A/V Receivers are ideal for today's portables. A powerful Digital Signal Processor expands the quality of sound from any connected device. Simplified front-side audio and video connections make it easy to play portables through the receiver.
The receiver can detect and receive the best possible video and audio signals from all connected devices-making connection and performance as simple as plugging in a single wire. Sony's HDMI "Active Intelligence," produces both audio and video through one HDMI cable.
Video sources connected via composite, S-video and component cables can not only be up converted to a HDMI™ video output but can also be up scaled from its native signal to 1080p (i.e. 480i to 1080p) thus minimizing the number of connections needed from the receiver to the television display. HDMI supports resolutions up to 1080p and enables both HD video and uncompressed streaming audio to be transmitted through a single cable.
