Faroudja Scaling question


Distinguished Member
Just a quickie.

Anyone know how the Faroudja chips scale to 1080i? Do they de-interlace in the process and then re-interlace again? Specifically interested in what the FLI-2310 DCDi chip does.

Can't see that they could do it in any other way, but I stand to be corrected. The concept of attempting to scale individual fields and then deinterlacing is too awful to contemplate!

Isn't it 408i to 480p to 1080p to 1080i. Scaling 480i to 1080i causes all sorts of 'issues'. There is a good web site somewhere linked to this on this forum giving scaling examples.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's that way. Had some firmware for my 963 that made it do 1080i out of component (before I SDI modded it).

963 SDI still for sale by the way...
