The VPC-1 is a high quality motion adaptive deinterlacer and video processor with line-doubled output. Additional functions include motion adaptive noise reduction, low angle directional interpolation and film cadence detection (supports multiple cadences including 3:2, 2:2 and others). When combined with Crucial IP's VSC-1 scaler core, the VPC-1 can be used to provide complete up/down/cross conversion. Years of experience in developing video processing algorithms have contributed to the outstanding performance of the VPC-1 amongst motion adaptive class solutions. The full feature set, robust performance and extremely efficient implementation make the VPC-1 ideal for both consumer electronic and broadcast applications.
