NatureVue(TM) Ultra-High-Definition Video Signal Processor Supports Multiple Display Resolutions | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) |

Analog Devices, Inc. introduced today an ultra-high-definition (UHD) video signal processor that is able to upscale and downscale between SD (480i), ED (480p), HD (720p, 1080i and 1080p), and UHD (2160p) video formats.

The UHD NatureVue(TM) ADV8005 video signal processor supports multiple screen resolutions across two simultaneous video streams in applications ranging from A/V receivers and HDMI splitters to commercial video distribution systems and digital signage.

The new processor can internally generate a high quality, bitmap-based on-screen display (OSD) that allows designers to easily incorporate features such as scrolling text and animation in color depths up to 24-bit true color.

It also accepts OSD information from an external source, such as a graphics processing unit.
