Many folk seem confused as to what video processors actually are. The common belief is that they just de-interlace SD material and then rescale it to some other resolution. Indeed when discussing video processors often the comments are usually about what de-interlacing chipset is used above anything else. It's true that those are important features of video processors but there is more to it than that. How they go about these tasks matter, as do some of the other features a video processor can have that may offer increases in performance over in built video processing.
