 Faroudja Native Rate Series

Introducing the Native Rate Series

For almost 30 years Faroudja has been the reference of excellence for video technology used
world wide for large screen Corporate, Staging and Home applications. The benefits of such
video processing expertise are now available in a more affordable configuration to exactly match
the growing market of mid-priced digital LCD, DLP and plasma displays.

As with our other processors the NR Series takes a no compromise approach to image quality
using Faroudja's award-winning patented high performance technology in a new innovative
configuration. Each processor is optimized for the display. By combining the most appropriate
resolution with signal processing, including Faroudja's patented Bandwidth Expansion circuit,
the unit will provide the cleanest, sharpest image possible for that display. It offers a simple and
effective solution to the complicated challenges of creating high quality video. By combining a
NR Series unit with every display, you can be sure the processing will be optimized ensuring
excellent images and correct operation.

Native Rate Series
Digital Video Processor -Aspect Ratio Controller

There are some very powerful technologies used in the Native Rate Series.

Resolution Selection
For the best image possible the digital display must operate at the proper resolution. In some
cases this is the display's native resolution. In others, due to the display's menu structure, an
alternative resolution will yield the best results. When a unit in the NR Series is ordered, the
display type is specified. The unit is then optimized for that display. This configuration has two
benefits; first the display will be sent the signal that provides the highest quality and second,
since the scan rate of the display does not change, the NR Series does not add expensive, and
unnecessary, variable rate scaling.

Image Optimizing
Bandwidth Expansion™ is a critical patented non-linear detail processing circuit in the NR
Series. Bandwidth Expansion technology is implemented after the scaling stage. It is then
optimized for the specific rate in the processor, using six different fine-tune adjustments for
horizontal and vertical edge information, greatly increasing the apparent resolution without "ringing" artifacts.

Motion

Patented Directional Correlation Deinterlacing (DCDi™) applies new
motion adaptive deinterlacing that prevents the introduction of motion
artifacts and jagged edges from video signals that originated from video
cameras (such as with sporting events, live camera feeds and music videos).

Patented 3/2 pull-down circuit with advanced edit detection is used for video signals that
originated from film cameras for exact reconstruction of the original film frame without
introducing motion artifacts. The advanced edit detection is critical to track today's videos that
typically are filled with fast edits that combine both film and video originated sources.

Color
Faroudja has long been known for offering the best color decoding technology. The NR Series
offers patented 10-bit adaptive comb filtering with Cross-Color suppression (rainbow pattern
artifact) and a two line Time Base Corrector. Bandwidth Expansion is applied to the color signal
for further improvements in color resolution. HDTV YPrPb to RGB transcoding is also included.

Controller
The NR Series offers aspect ratio and image alignment controls ensuring that it will integrate
effortlessly with all types of displays.

Faroudja Direct Digital Source
TO: NEW DVD/NRS Combination Unit!


FAROUDJA DVP-5000


Digital Video Processor/Scaler

HDTV is finally here. Unfortunately, it usually arrives as an interlaced signal.
This causes visible line structure and stairstepping artifacts.

The new DVP5000 will input the 1080i interlaced HDTV signal and
recombine the information to yield artifact free 1080p progressive HDTV.
While removing interlacing artifacts it also increases light output on CRT projectors.
Large venue Electronic Cinema applications with fixed panel display projectors
such as DLP and D-ILA projectors require a progressive signal for optimum
performance which the DVP5000 can provide.

The new DVP5000 combines patented technology
with an extensive list of features to optimize any multi-scan projector,
providing the excellent video quality only Faroudja can deliver for theater,
commercial, and staging applications.
CRT, DLP,LCD and Plasma displays all benefit from the DVP5000 performance.

  • HDTV 1080i to 1080p Conversion
  • Scan Rate scaling of DTV 480i to computer rates
    VGA, SVGA, XGA and SXGA
  • Scan Rate scaling of DTV 480i to DTV/HDTV rates
    480p, 1080i, 720p, 960p (Quadrupling) and even 1080p.
  • New Scan-LockTM Bandwidth Expansion optimizes
    detail settings for each scan rate.
  • New Directional Correlation Deinterlacing (DCDi TM)
    for artifact free deinterlacing of original video material.
  • Accepts progressive DVD signals for upconverting to higher scan rates.
  • Internal Aspect Ratio control for Letterbox, Anamorphic and 4:3 sources.
  • Patented Picture PlusTM technology for superior color decoding,
    deinterlacing and detail processing.
  • 10-bit Adaptive color decoding with Time Base Correction.

THE ULTIMATE IMAGES!
The DVP5000 produces the Ultimate Image combined with all the features required to meet the demands
of the ever expanding projector market for Electronic Cinema, and Home Theater applications.
The DVP5000 adds significant image performance to any multi-scan projector from any DTV or HDTV source.

Image Quality

The DVP5000 applies three new critical signal
processing circuits that take image quality to an
even higher level than previous Faroudja models.

HDTV 1080i to 1080p Conversion removes the interlaced
artifacts from HDTV 1080i sources using new patented
technology optimized for the high bandwidth and signal timing
demands of the 1080p scan rate(67KHz) including new
interpolations of 3/2-pulldown detection and Bandwidth Expansion.
A separate HDTV input stage accepts the 480p, 1080i or 720p signals.

Diagonal Correlation Deinterlacing (DCDi TM) applies new
motion adaptive deinterlacing that prevents the introduction of
motion artifacts and jagged edges from video signals that
originated from 480i video cameras.
A second patented 3/2 pull-down detection circuit is used
for video signals that originate from film.

Scan-LockTM Bandwidth Expansion detail circuitry.
Most “scalers” create a soft image as the scan rate is increased due
to line interpolation and no detail processing after the scaling stage.
The DVP5000’s unique “Scan-Lock” circuitry applies the advanced Bandwidth Expansion circuitry
after the scaling stage and is fine-tuned and locked to optimize each scan rate.
This approach greatly improves edge detail at any scan rate.
The Patented Bandwidth Expansion circuitry is a complex multi-step process
to improve edge detail for both chroma and luminance information.

Outputs

The output frequencies can be perfectly aligned to match the native
resolution of most high resolution Fixed Panel Display projectors.
CRT projector performance can be fine-tuned to provide maximum line count
resulting in higher light output and resolution without image softening.

HDTV 1080i signals are converted to 1080p.
HDTV 480p signals can be viewed as either 480p or converted to 960p.
HDTV 720p signals are passed-through.
All HDTV signals are processed with Bandwidth Expansion for improved edge detail.

480i signals are upconverted to computer frequencies of
640X480, 800X600, 1024X768 and 1280X1024.
Also to DTV/HDTV frequencies of 720p, 1080i, 960p (Quadrupling) and 1080p.

Internal Aspect Ratio control allows for optimizing the projector with the different 480i sources available.
Letterbox, Anamorphic and 4:3 sources are adjusted inside the DVP5000
so only one memory is required in the projector.
*Aspect Ratio control not available with HDTV input signals.
