• Sharper
    video capture is achieved through an industry leading 2D 5-line comb filter.

  • Professional quality 3D comb filter which is used to separate the luminance
    and chrominance components of video. The 3D filter works best on still areas
    of video because it is able to scan ahead a frame and determine whether the
    image has changed or not. It then uses this information to properly separate
    the luminance and chrominance parts of a composite or TV tuner signal to
    eliminate color bleeding or other artifacting.

  • The
    THEATER™550 PRO’s digital audio architecture delivers 100% synchronized
    audio and video. Audio and video streams are processed in together in the
    chip and sent out packaged as a MPEG stream to the system for storage or
    playback. Say goodbye to bad lip sync.
  • High
    horsepower chip ensures that frames are never dropped and smooth and fluid
    video is recorded, providing an ideal PVR experience.
  • Bright
    bursts in white or color levels occur due to fluctuating signal strength and
    cause video to suddenly brighten and then darken. The THEATER™550 PRO
    prevents this problem from occurring by using a 12-bit analog to digital
    converter which converts and smoothes out the analog signal, along with
    Automatic Gain Control (AGC) circuitry.
  • Most
    analog video sources, whether from cable TV or antenna are very noisy with
    snow and other distortions. The THEATER™550 PRO has been designed to tackle
    this real-world video and has a dedicated engine to intelligently remove
    noise, yet still achieved sharp edges and fine textures.


  • The
    THEATER™550 PRO combines all the features of a TV tuning PVR card into a
    single chip complete with high-end THEATER™quality.
