DVDO EDGE video processor

Anchor Bay Technologies on Friday announced it will soon release its DVDO EDGE 1080p upscaling video processor for home theaters. The audiovisual hub includes six HDMI 1.3 Deep Color inputs, two HDMI 1.3 outputs and a full complement of various other analog and digital A/V connections. It upscales video content thanks to Anchor Bay's Video Reference Series technologies, which include 10-bit de-interlacing and progressive reprocessing of files that would otherwise deinterlace poorly.

The flexible DVDO EDGE is able to support up to 10 video sources, with one of the HDMI 1.3 inputs on the front panel. There are two component video inputs, as well as a composite and S-video input for connecting older devices. For audio input, DVDO EDGE includes four digital and a single analog audio input, each of which can be assigned to any of the video inputs. One of the two HDMI 1.3 outputs carries audio only, to deliver it to connected receivers and processors. An optical audio output provides a second option.

The DVDO EDGE allows users to eliminate black bars and account for overscan or underscan images, with a full choice of aspect ratios. Users can set picture properties for each source, which are stored in memory. Auto input selection that switches to an input with an active signal eliminates the tedious task of selecting the proper channel. An automatic lip-sync delay will match up video with audio delivery, and for files where it's already present, users can set it manually up to 200ms.

DVDO promises the EDGE video processor will cost $799 when it comes to market in the latter half of September.
