Selection of the FLI2200 by Philips , one of the world's leading consumer electronics companies , confirms it as a leading deinterlacer with superior capabilities , said Robert Haefling
, Sage's vice president of business development for DVD and set-top box.Philips' DVD-recorders will use Sage technology to offer superior DVD playback quality for DVD movies as well as the consumers' own recorded videos.The DCDi difference is very clear to consumers , who can now achieve unprecedented picture quality at a great value.Cross color suppression is also important in achieving great video quality by suppressing artifacts produced when NTSC or PAL signals are decoded.The difference is especially clear when content such as sporting events and home movies are recorded and played back , added Haefling
The DCDi algorithm eliminates the jagged edges seen on moving angled lines in video images.Motion-adaptive deinterlacing with optimal filtering on a per pixel basis suppresses motion artifacts and provides the highest resolution picture.The FLI2200 also features Film Mode deinterlacing , invented and patented by Faroudja , for proper handling of 3 : 2 and 2 : 2 pulldown as well as bad edit detection/correction.The FLI2200 supports 8/10-bit ITU-R BT656 , 16/20-bit YUV and 24/30-bit RGB , YCrCb and YPrPb interlaced inputs and progressive outputs with auto-detection of NTSC/PAL/SECAM inputs.
Gartner Dataquest projects rapid growth in the worldwide market for recordable and rewritable DVD players , from 1.8 million units in 2001 to 13.8 million units in 2004 ( preliminary data ).
