HQView530 is a universal image scaler and scan converter which provides stunning image quality for professional, broadcast and corporate AV users.HQView530 features 4-sided soft edge blend with multi-region black level correction for seamless blending of multiple projectors and includes flexible geometry correction functions which are able to correct image shape and projector misalignment by dragging and dropping each image corner, or pin/barrel, rotation or keystone and rotation.Full warp mapping is also supported by HQView530. 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.HQView530 has 3G-SDI input and out connectivity with backwards compatibility with HD-SDI and SD-SDI. For in-camera use a Genlock input is provided for compatible with bi or tri-level sync or black & burst.For LED videowalls LEDView530 is also available with optimized operating modes for LED, Projection and Scaling.
