  • HQView500 series models are universal multi-input scalers, scan converters and switchers with 3G-SDI input & output connectivity, genlock, pan/zoom/tilt and interlaced or progressive output capability, able to up, down or cross convert virtually all video signal formats. Powerful geometry correction on HQView510 and HQView520 models is able to correct image shape and projector misalignment by dragging and dropping each image corner, or by pin/barrel/rotation, or by keystone and rotation. An automatic portrait mode is also provided. Professional grade 48-bit per pixel 4-sided soft edge blend provides seamless blending of multiple projectors using Calibre’s proprietary blend processor with 8-zone blending and 9-zone black level correction. HQView520 includes full warp mapping for projection onto curved and irregular surfaces and precise image alignment as well as including blend and geometry correction

  • HQview520 features 4-sided soft edge blend for seamless blending of multiple projectors and includes flexible geometry correction functions able to correct image shape and projector misalignment by dragging and dropping each image corner, or by pin/barrel, rotation or by keystone and rotation.

  • Full warp mapping is also supported by HQView520. A PC application is included for easy warp map creation or third-party generated warp maps can also be processed from automatic image alignment systems making HQView520 ideal for dual overlaid projector alignment in 3D systems.
  • HQView520 has 3G-SDI input and out connectivity with backwards compatibility with HDSDI and
    SD-SDI. A Genlock input is provided for studio/staging, compatible with bi or tri-level sync or black & burst.
