HQView 4K Image Processing
Next generation Ultra-HD and 4K image processing has arrived with HQUltra Video Processors. Using Calibre's in-house video processing algorithms to deliver best in class solutions, HQUltra provides seamless interface between the worlds of HD and 4K.
Providing the ultimate scaler-switcher solution, Calibre's HQUltraFast input switching technology is able to change inputs in approximately 0.25 seconds, yes, just a quarter of a second.
ISE 2016 saw the launch of Calibre's first ever combined video and audio scaler-switchers. This new product type includes analogue and embedded audio switching, microphone inputs with mixer, balanced line-level outputs and integral 15W+15W RMS stereo power amplifier all within the 1U Enclosure.
HQUltra scalers provide stunning image quality in demanding applications including professional AV, staging, broadcast, houses of worship, medical, corporate and education.
For continued support of HD systems Calibre's respected HQView Reon™ based scalers also remain available with guaranteed availability until at least end 2018 to ensure continuity for existing users.

HQView Reon™ HD ScalersSwitchers
- HQView530 is a universal HD image scaler and scan converter. It has 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 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 extraction 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. HQView530 includes full warp mapping for projection onto curved and irregular surfaces and precise image alignment as well as including blend and geometry correction.
- HQView325 is a highly flexible warp and blend scaler featuring 4-sided soft edge blend with multi-region black level correction for seamless blending of multiple projectors and full warp mapping support.
- HQView300 Series provide geometry correction, blend and warp processing capabilities, but with DVI/HDMI, VGA Analog (via DVI-I) and Component Video connectivity only, housed in a compact package for installation behind a projector or in a control desk.
- HQView210 & HQView100 convert 3G-SDI or Composite/S-Video into high resolution DVI/HDMI formats with powerful HQV algorithms for best possible image quality always. HQView210 includes geometry correction, rotation and portrait mode.
