Harnessing the power of the ReonTM video processor from IDT, running state of the art HQV algorithms with expertly designed hardware and firmware from Calibre, HQView520 is a highly flexible image scaler and scan converter which provides stunning image quality for professional, broadcast and corporate AV users.

 HQview520 features 4-sided soft edge blend for seamless blending of multiple projectors and includes flexible geometry correction functions able to correct image shape and projector misalignment by dragging and dropping each image corner, or by pin/barrel, rotation or by keystone and rotation.

 Full warp mapping is also supported by HQView520. A PC application is included for easy warp map creation or third-party generated warp maps can also be processed from automatic image alignment systems making HQView520 ideal for dual overlaid projector alignment in 3D systems.

 HQView520 has 3G-SDI input and out connectivity with backwards compatibility with HDSDI and SD-SDI.  A Genlock input is provided for studio/staging, compatible with bi or tri-level sync or black & burst.
