HDTV Upconverter
Real time conversion of 525/625 digital video to HDTV.

The UBox is a high quality HDTV upconverter that converts serial digital video (525 or 625) to digital television 480p, 720p and 1080 standards. The UBox has an extensive list of standard features including complete aspect ratio controls, advanced image enhancement filters and a film mode for improved upconversion of film sourced video.

The UBox features powerful aspect ratio controls for full 4:3 to 16:9 support. The controls include anamorphic stretch, separate horizontal and vertical controls for black bars as well as zoom, and smooth pan/scan controls. You can create your own aspect ratio presets or use the factory presets.

The UBox’s unmatched image quality is achieved via proprietary conversion technology that evaluates the video source characteristics and selects the appropriate filter and conversion algorithms. Separate video modules perform each major signal processing function. This permits simple upgrades to incorporate any future HDTV standards.
