OUR PART # HQV530
Optoma's HQView530 HQVâ„˘ is a Universal HQVâ„˘ Scalerâ€“Switcher/Scan Converter with Warp Mapping, Edge Blend & 3G-SDI In/Out and LCD display for fast easy set-up in the field.
Optoma, in partnership with Calibre, has co-produced special versions of Calibre's edge blending and warping products, optimizing them for use with Optoma's ProScene line of projectors. This unique partnership has brought about a reduction in complexity and setup time for edge blending of multiple ProScene projectors, and is covered by Optoma's industry-leading ProScene technical support services if you should need assistance with your edge blending needs.
Edge Blending Explained
Some applications may require a brighter and higher resolution image than can be provided by a single projector. When this situation arises and more than one projector is needed for projection of single images, unless done well, the image displayed can often include visible "bands", showing overlap of the projected images, and interfering with image clarity. Edge-blending technology is the solution to this problem, eliminating the visible banding, and producing a single bright, high resolution image across the projection surface, using multiple projectors. The HQView530 gives you precise control of multiple, edge-blended images quickly, easily, and seamlessly.
Mindful of end-user applications, the HQView530 is made to let you expertly and seamlessly edge-blend multiple, curved images on all 4 image edges using an unlimited number of projectors, offering precise control of edge-blended images and warp displays to fit practically any projection surface â€“ flat or curved (for more information, see the "Optoma Simple Guides" under the "Documentation" tab above).
The Optoma Advantage
Traditional blending solutions can require complicated and time-consuming configuration with compatibility issues between blending solutions and projectors. Optoma's blending solution resolves and eliminates these issues, as each of Optoma's ProAV projector models has been rigorously tested with the HQView530 and a series of optimized presets developed to greatly lower blending project complexity and setup time.
If help is needed with your blending project, uniquely, the industry-leading Optoma ProAv support team is ready to assist with your complete blending project â€“ blending boxes and projectors as a single system â€“ helping to greatly simplify the support process for you, and allowing us to offer support to quickly and efficiently get your blending projects on track.
For over 10 years, Optoma has been one of the worldâ€™s foremost projector designers and manufacturers - among the very few companies that focuses exclusively on projectors.
Currently, the Optoma range exemplifies the evolution of projection expertise, honed and refined through manufacturing and support of millions of projectors worldwide, with this expertise having been integrated into their products and support services, and keeping an eye toward demanding pro applications, including:
Harnessing the power of the IDT Reonâ„˘ video processor running state-of-the-art HQV algorithms within skillfully designed hardware and firmware from Calibre, the HQView530 is a high-performance yet compact image scaler featuring HDMI/DVI/Component/VGA inputs and HDMI/DVI output, all offering exceptional image quality for Broadcast, professional, plus corporate AV users.
This exceptional unit includes 4-sided soft edge blend for seamless multiple projector image blending, and flexible geometry correction functions which can rectify image shape and projector misalignment using drag and drop of each image corner, using pin, rotation, barrel, or using keystone and rotation.
The HQView530 also features full warp-mapping capability, with this capability brought in by an included flexible and intuitive PC application. In addition, 3rd party generated warp maps can also be processed from automatic image alignment systems, making the HQView530 great for dual overlaid projector alignment in 3D projection systems.
This extraordinary unit comes with 3G-SDI in and out connectivity plus backwards compatibility with SDSDI and HDSDI. A Genlock input is also provided for studio/staging, and in-camera use, along with support for bi or tri-level sync, as well as black & burst.
Automatic Geometric Alignment
Scalable Ready certified, the HQView530 can be used with Scalable Display Technologies products for automatic geometric display alignment. This software-driven, camera-based system auto-aligns displays with remarkable speed and accuracy, even further simplifying setup of the blending and warping of projects.
