Up-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: fullscreen
  • Pillarbox 4:3: results in a 4:3 image in center of screen with black sidebars
  • Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
  • Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill fullscreen
  • Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change

Down-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: fullscreen
  • Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
  • Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size

Cross-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • 1080i to 720p
  • 720p to 1080i
  • 720p to 1080PsF

SD to SD Aspect Ratio Conversion

  • Letterbox: This transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
  • H Crop: Will produce a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
  • SD Pillarbox: Will produce an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
  • V Crop: Will transform SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image

Reference Input
