Calibre launches its Vantage-HD Home Theater video scaler and switcher, powered by the Silicon Optix Realta HQV video processing engine.

“We selected the Realta HQV for the Vantage-HD because it delivers spectacular image quality. Not only does it convert NTSC or PAL standard-definition (SD) material to superb high definition (HD) images, but it is the only processor to correctly process HD video for maximum image quality,” says Tim Brooksbank, CEO of Calibre.

Realta HQV processing originates from Teranex’s $60,000 broadcast and postproduction platforms. Teranex’s software algorithms run on Realta’s trillion-operations-per-second video engine to deliver a new standard for video quality called Hollywood Quality Video, or HQV.

“Vantage-HD harnesses the awesome computational power of Realta HQV, making it user-friendly with a very flexible selection of inputs, programmable audio-follow-video routing, and an intuitive graphical user interface. Vantage-HD is the most competitively, priced fully loaded Realta HQV-based image scaler on the market,” Brooksbank says.

Unlike any other video processor, Realta HQV is also fully software-programmable and upgradeable. The Realta HQV processor executes its video algorithms entirely in software. As new firmware is developed for Vantage-HD, consumers can simply download the upgrades from the Calibre website: www.calibreuk.com.
