    DScaler is used for de-interlacing and scaling film/video sources, eg Sky or cable TV, to output progressive scan at a screen resolution (usually) higher than PAL. This gives a much better picture quality than the standard interlaced one and is very effective on suitable viewing equipment such as plasma screen and projector/screen.

    PowerStrip is primarily used to adjust the timings (horizontal & vertical scan rates etc) and resolution (incl aspect ratio) of VGA output signals (usually after de-interlacing etc with DScaler) to suit the particular display device (eg projector or plasma) where standard Windows timings and resolutions don't work or can be improved upon.
