ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the problem faced by the video industry involving the need to convert material from interlaced to progressive with a mix of standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) television (TV) formats. It cites that conversion systems account for the embedded audio carried with virtually all TV signals. Moreover, the author notes the advantage of a robust standards converter in providing highly automated operation and sophisticated image and audio processing.
