    We are about to do a demonstration where we will most likely have a 61" pioneer screen and a 640x480 NTSC prog scan signal as input.
    Now the source is realtime game stuff, and unfortunately there is no anti aliasing so it looks hella pixelated at that res on that size screen (especially in prog scan!)

    Are there any stand alone devices that provide the same sort of effect like philip's pixel plus?

    any help is appreciated!

    A scaler will take your low resolution 640x480 to whatever is native rate for your plasma; 61" one would likely be 1365x768.

    There are plenty of scalers around, but check for ones that match the resolutions you require (640x480 input, 1365x768 output) and can handle computer graphics properly (you mention it's for a game) as consoles/computers frames are different to video; different image for each field, rather than one image over two fields.

    You may even be able to rent one. But if you want to buy one check out here, or many others.

    I think we are locked to 30fps rather then 60 fps so odd and even fields should be the same .. anyways.. does this matter at all as the output signal from the machine will be a prog scan one?

    Also would you have any suggestion from where you could rent these?

    thanx for the link tho!
