    In a word NO - an external Video Processor is used to bring together a range of source signals and optimise each signal to your Display (or Displays).

    Whilst every Display device has its own on-board Video Processing these are often fairly rudimentary and by utilising an external Video Processor with high quality processing you aim to arrive at a better image quality across a range of source signals.

    Achieving a ten fold improvement in image quality with a low bite rate MPEG2 file would be a miracle - though its pretty obvious when you see a properly installed and configured system that includes the likes of an iSCanHD+ that the iScan is a fair bit better than what the Display manufacturer has provided.

    None of these products are Plug and Play - they all rely on YOU configuring the Video Processor to best match your Display device and also to best match each source device you plug into the Video Processor.

    If your experienced at setting this type of kit up then fine - if not ensure you work with a Dealer who can.

    Best regards

    Joe
