Xindak DVD Player .....


Recommended Posts




This is the chipset spec. use , you think any progressive scan feature ???

 

General Description

Platform

The MediamaticsTM NDV8501 DVD on a Chip Processor provides next-generation features and cost-effective system integration for Universal DVD players and Internet connected players/recorders. Integration of an industry standard RISC processor architecture operating at high performance levels allows system developers to combine the ease of C-based application coding with flexible system extensions unavailable in other platforms. This processor can be equally applied to DVD-Video & DVD-Audio playback, DVD recordable solutions, Hard Disk Drive-based recordable solutions and Internet Appliance products.

 

Audio

The NDV8501 provides unsurpassed audio processing quality and flexibility with wide ranging support for all common disc-based audio formats and many Internet-based formats. A custom 24-bit DSP has been developed to provide a powerful solution for the latest compute intensive audio algorithms. Support for common DVD-Video, VideoCD and CD formats has been carried forward from previous generation devices and in addition, support for DVD-Audio formats, DTS, MPEG-2 multi-channel, Dolby Prologic, HDCD and MP3 have been added. Karaoke processing and a royalty-free 3D stereo surround implementation are also provided. The flexible audio structure allows audio data to originate from disc-based media, external digital audio streams or via the Internet. Full 5.1 channel output with simultaneous 2-channel down-mix and IEC958/1937 output is standard for the NDV8501.

The XLR connectors are usually for studio apps where long runs of cables are used. Not very useful for consumer electronics unless all the amps, processors uses XLR.

 

XLR uses differential mode signalling. Home uses simple RCA. Use XLR at home is overkill, like in some boutique hi-fi equip.

 

Analogous to driving a Ferrari in Suntec City. Got lots of power, but used wrongly. :o :o ;D ;D

Hmmm ..... positive reply from Xindak.

Anyone know where can see the review of this National Semiconductor chipset ???

So Norman is that a go for the mass order?

If the Xindak uses the Mediamatics deinterlacer chipset, than we can expect its progressive performance to be very much inferior to those with the Sage-Faroudja and Silicon Image chips.

 

Frankly, I wouldnt even consider the Xindak, since current Sage-based dvd players (eg Nintaus and Skyworth) are so competitively priced.

I would have shared the same thoughts as u but surprisingly the reviews on Avsforum seems otherwise, It's looks and sounds like a performer bith in the Video and Audio sections.

IMO worth evaluating...
