    Guys, anyone got any comments on this video processor?

    I saw one at CES, and it looked pretty impressive, certainly had good connectivitly and features, but ive been unable to see one since getting back to the UK.

    info at www.crystalio.com

    but summary:

    Inputs:
    3x SDI
    2x component/RGBS/RGsB or 6 composite
    3 S-Video
    1x HDTV Analoge input
    1x DVI

    Outputs
    DVI + RGBHV/Component

    DCDi, up to 1080p (user customisable)
    Tearless Frame rate conversion up to 120Hz
    + a load of other features....

    all in all, looks like an impressive unit.... but no real mention on this forum (yes i searched first)

    Views of the experts plz :)
    thx
    Kev

    Hi kev
    Its not available yet - we will have some pre-release models later this month prior to the full launch in March.
    It should be very good...

    PMS badly got the priceing wrong on this product, its about $1000 north of what it should have been. Also The faroudja chip has more bugs than a bush tucker trial. :laugh:

    LOL Jeff :)

    Your right, the early revisions did have lots of problems. Crystalio is based on the BD version though which is several revs on and is very stable and reliable...unlike the average celebrity!

    cheers!
