Separate Progressive scan or build in?


Standard Member
Just had the demo yesterday from the Panny, which looked great. What was even more impressive, was the use of a Silicon Image Iscan pro to go with it though. Jagged lines were suddenly straight which looked great.

Looking at the costs though, the Silicon unit is £649 by itself. Would it be better to scrap the existing DVD player and buy one with the progressive scanner build in, or is the Silicon unit far superior to anything else you can get build in?

Any views on that would be greatly appreciated,

The Iscan wil do it's trick with everything fed through it, not just DVD. There are many DVD players that use the same de-interlacing chipset as the Iscan but not all look the same so viewing all options is essential.

For PAL film source material though the Iscan or a good prog scan DVD player will be better than the de-interlacing within the Plasma.
