April 26, 2012 -- Today, Elecard Devices CJSC, a leading provider of top-notch video compression technology and software products for video and audio playback and editing, announced release of Elecard UpScaler IP Core, a functional unit which is designed for image resolution upscaling (zooming) in the process of image output at the display device. Scaling coefficient can be set to any value.
Unique algorithm implemented in Elecard UpScaler IP Core provides better picture quality in comparison with bicubic and bilinear interpolation methods.
If you scale the video up in 2 or more times, PSNR image quality metrics is 6-8 dB higher than bilinear interpolation metrics and 0.5-1 dB higher than bicubic one.
System-on-chip developers will appreciate the product's сompactness and high efficiency. For example, it is possible to scale video up to resolution 4K even with performance provided by low-priced FPGA.
