Elecard announces release of Elecard UpScaler IP Core for
design and development of video-output devices.
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
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.
