    Is a focus enhancements quadscan pro better than an Silicon Image iscan pro?

    I have a panny plasma and a sony 10ht pj (not yet set up). I currently connect dvd via component to iscan, sky+ via svideo and vcr via composite. These are then connected to the panny via the 15pin to 15pin d-sub so that I can use my Xbox to connect to the YUV connection on the panel

    Would an quadscan do anything superior to the iscan?

    sorry if this is a bone question, I'm relatively inexperienced about these things but was reccomended to buy the iscan when I bought the PJ (used)

    thanx

    For your purposes the Quadscan would make the image worse in comparison to the Iscan.

    If you want a significant improvement then save for a CS-1 from Focus or something even better.

    I did an evaluation of the iScan with a 32" LOEWE TV with VGA module fitted.
    It was great.

    The only downside was it's inability to handle aspect ratios not equal to 4:3 or 16:9.
    The CS-1 would give you the required scaling capability needed to overcome that for different aspect ratios...

    So I'm holding off for a while longer and planning to build a HCPC with a Holo3Dgraph card to do the de-interlacing AND scaling which will keep my options open for both a LOEWE TV and a projector (either for CRT (with VGA) or DLP (with DVI output on the graphic card)

    what is the Quadscan good for then.?
    I have an Iscan which I use for PAL sources (DVD, Sky etc) and currently put NTSC DVD/consoles via progressive into the HS-10. Would a Quadscan benefit my NTSC sources at all.?
