    Hi,

    I have seen a lot mentioning of the ISCAN ultra thingymijig - basic questions is what is it and what does it do?

    Would it be applicable in my scenario where everything goes into a video switching amp and then output to the panel (apart from the dvd which will have a direct connectionto panel via compon. connections) ? I will (panel arrives monday) be using S-Video (for NTL cable, XBox,DVD recorder) & Composite (PS2, GameCube and owt else).

    Comments, suggestions and experience welcome!!

    Cheers,

    Robin.

    Why are you using svideo and Composite?

    Anyway, the iscan ultra is a deinterlacer - you send it interlaced stuff and it spits out p. scan stuff. Wether you need it or not depends on what display you use - what model plasma have you ordered?

    FanFax2002,

    The Iscan is a de-interlacer with some additional benefits.

    Basically you put an interlaced signal in, get a progressive signal out. Output, via both digital and analouge, up to 576p.

    I would imagine usefull if you havn't a progressive scan DVD player or indeed want to improve 'television' picture performance.

    In your scenario, DVD if not Progressive, via the ISCAN as could NTL. Have a look at www.tmfsolutions.co.uk for more information.

    Ive not used one before, so no idea of how good the quality of output is.

    Cheers


    Tony
