    Has anyone ever heard anything about, or used a brite-view doubler/progressive converter? I'm looking into buying one for my new ae200 projector. I am considering the iscan and the brite-view. The brite-view is cheaper and has a remote. Any thought are appreciated!

    Hi Rob. I'm going to move your post over to the Display Devices fourm where it has a better chance of getting to someone who owns one of these units.

    and heres what he has to say

    "They are two different processors. The iScan is a de-interlacer and the BriteView is a Scaler with a de-interlacer. The iScan is better for strictly deinterlacing to 480p, but the BriteView does a pretty good job also. The BriteView had some issues with the black level being on the high side. I'm not sure why this exist, but the folks at Zinwell did confirm this observation. For the money, the BriteView was impressive. The front-end of the BriteView did a better job at Y/C separation (using the 3-D comb filter) for composite inputs. The iScan did a better job at getting rid of line-to-line jitter with it's built-in TBC. Depending on your needs, both worked well. However, remember that poor video sources will not necessarily look good once they are up converted. I've had some people complain about this. Hope this helps."
