video processor

A chip or stand-alone component that provides video format conversion. Video processing chips are built into video equipment such as A/V receivers and Blu-ray and DVD players, while stand-alone "outboard" video processors reside in the home theater equipment rack between the TV set-top box and the TV.

A Lot of Processing
A video processor may perform all or some combination of the following functions: upconversion, deinterlacing, frame rate conversion, noise reduction, artifact removal, lip sync (A/V synchronization) and edge enhancement. See upconvert, deinterlace, mosquito noise, Gaussian noise and lip sync.


Home Theater Video Processor
Anchor Bay's acclaimed video processor functions as a switch for all video sources, including Blu-ray players and set-top boxes. Using Anchor Bay's Video Reference Series (VRS) technology, the EDGE upconverts signals to the TV's native resolution and funnels the audio to the sound system. It also deinterlaces and provides mosquito noise reduction and sharpness adjustment. (Image courtesy of Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc., www.anchorbaytech.com)
