Gefen 1080p upscaler

Gefen has introduced the A/V Scaler Pro, a device that up-converts video signals to 1080p while offering integrated audio amplification. Users can connect a variety of sources, including HDTV televisions, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, DVD players, computers, and more. The input is converted to HDMI with embedded and coaxial/optical audio output. The devices combines a frame rate conversion engine, 3-D motion adaptive de-interlacers, color engine, and dual scaling engines.

Users can adjust several settings with an included remote control, including noise reduction, scaling, aspect ratio, and frame delay for aligning audio to video. The company claims a delay of less than one frame, which would be suitable for gaming. For applications where an additional A/V receiver is impractical, two 20W terminals are provided for directly connecting speakers. The Audio/Video Scaler Pro with Amplified Audio can be obtained from the company for $1300.
