Video Post-Processing Technology (VPP) is used by the video and film industry to improve subjective video quality of playback devices. This project focuses on the research and development of a silicon proven video post-processing IP suite for DTV. The main features of this IP suite include: Video DeInterlacing, Frame Rate Conversion (from 30fps to 120fps), Image DeNoising and Color Enhancement (Contrast enhancement, Brightness adjustment, and Saturation adjustment), Sharpness enhancement, Image Up and Down Scaling, and other image enhancement processing. The result of this project enables ASTRI to develop its own digital TV platform which significantly improves the subjective video quality and at the same time providing a low cost full-feature digital TV total solution for Hong Kong and China Mainland TV manufacturers.
