Alice Hill from Realtechnews tells us about a upscaling DVD player for under $200…
Not interested in the HD format wars? We donâ€™t blame you. Luckily in this case technology comes to the rescue with an affordable solution – an upscaling DVD player. Upscaling is not to be confused with progressive scan DVD players. Upscaling is just what the name implies – your tickets to full-on 1080p HD resolution with your existing DVD discs.
Every HDTV needs one of these!
The HELIOS H4000 HD Upscaling DVD Player is the only player in the market that can bring your home theater images to a stunning 1080p resolution through HDMI, component and even better, 1080i through VGA/RGB-HV outputs.
With 10 different resolutions to choose from, the H4000 upscales not only your standard DVD titles, but also “home-made” DVDs, not to mention MPEG4 formats such as DivX and XviD stored in your CDRs and DVDRs!
VGA/RGB-HV outputs even give you the ability to upscale to 1080i on your projectors! And with 576i video output via HDMI, the H4000 is ideal for your external video scalers.
With a slick design in a compact and lightweight plastic case, the H4000 brings an added touch of style to your home theater.
