What are the video scaling recommendations with the VP-6000?
Product Family: Video Processors and Controllers
If the resolution of the video display's surface does not match video format's aspect resolution, the image must be scaled and /or cropped to match the native resolution of the display.
Scaling is the process of converting image data from one resolution to another resolution. This involves a mathematical adjustment of individual pixels. The quality of the image can be impacted by an image that is not properly scaled.
|||VIDEO ZONE WIDTH RANGE || 360-2560 pixels || 640-3840 pixels||270-1920 pixels|
|||VIDEO ZONE HEIGHT RANGE|| 240-1440 pixels || 360-2160 pixels||240-1440 pixels |
- No filtering, perfect pass-through
- BEST quality, limit planned scaling to 1.2:1.
- GOOD quality, limit planned scaling to 2:1.
- OK quality, limit planned scaling to 3:1.
The machine won’t break past 3:1, but incoming data samples will include lots of aliasing and lost fine detail. This is still useful for transition effects but isn’t recommended for static setups.
