Original video image
There are two models of the DVS 406 to accommodate
various A/V signal requirements: the DVS 406 A (with
video, and upscale them to one of 33 high resolution
formats, including HDTV rates. High performance scaling
is accomplished by using proprietary Extron technologies
that eliminate visible scan lines, and create a brighter and
higher resolution image when viewing on large screen
displays. Scaling all inputs to the same rate and format
allows the scaler to provide simplified and centralized
signal routing of all sources in A/V environments, either
directly, or via RS-232 or IR control.
The DVS 406 AD supports SDI signals on a sixth input.
On both models, video is output simultaneously on one
female 15-pin HD connector and five BNC connectors.
This signal compatibility and flexibility, combined with a
high performance scaling engine and an assortment of
feature enhancements, make the DVS 406 a vital part of
many professional A/V systems.

Dynamic Motion
Interpolation (DMI™)
without DMI technology
with DMI technology
Dynamic Motion Interpolation (DMI) is
Extron’s proprietary scaling technology
that enables the DVS 406 to measure
and compensate for motion artifacts,
such as jaggies, that can distort an image
when video is de-interlaced. The DMI
process delivers the best aspects of still
and motion algorithms and introduces
a new level of image enhancement
capability without compromising image
fidelity. Utilizing DMI, the DVS 406 can
provide superior image quality.
3:2 and 2:2 pulldown detection
3:2 pulldown detection for NTSC and 2:2 film
detection for PAL is an advanced film mode
processing technique. It helps maximize image
detail and sharpness for NTSC or PAL sources
that originated from film. The DVS 406 uses
pulldown and film detection to match film
to video frame rates for smoother and more
natural video.
When video input and output refresh rates
differ, there are certain points in time when the
two rates cross over each other. The result is a
glitch or image freeze on the display. AFL solves
this problem by locking the output frame rate
to the input frame rate.
True Rate™ Scaling Technology
True Rate technology eliminates “judder.”
Judder is a side effect of 3:2 pulldown, the
process that is used to convert film to video,
and appears as a jumping or stuttering effect
on video that was made from film. This problem
is caused by the fact that film and video run at
different frame rates. When an Extron scaler
featuring True Rate technology detects 3:2
pulldown, it applies a technique that will match
the video frame rate to the film rate by adding
frames as needed. One video field is added to
each set of two fields, so that each frame of
film is now shown over three video fields. The
film frames are now all shown for an equal
amount of time, eliminating the uneven effect,
and making motion and panning scenes appear
smooth and even.
Accu-RATE Frame Lock (AFL™)
Accu-RATE Frame Lock (AFL) is a patented
Extron technology that solves frame rate
conversion issues experienced by video scalers.

The DVS 406 offers seamless switching for polished, professional transitions to and from the RGB
source on input one. Presentations are enhanced by eliminating distracting visual jumps, glitches,
and distortion commonly seen when switching between computer and video sources. The scaler’s
output rate is tied to the computer source on input one and switches to and from that source
through a digital video mixer to produce broadcast quality instant cut and dissolve effects for
seamless switching.
The DVS 406 offers 33 scaled output rates
for compatibility with a wide range of display
types, including these computer-video and

Inputs two through six utilize
Extron’s Triple-Action switching
feature to improve switching
quality. Triple-Action Switching
is a three step Switching
sequence that minimizes picture
scrambling and glitches by
blanking the video signal during
the switch. This allows the
display device to lock onto a new sync timing
signal for a brief period just prior to switching
the video signal, which reduces visible image
noise and makes the switch clean and precise.
Aspect Ratio Conversion
with Memories
Without Aspect
Ratio Control
(Screen size = 1.85:1)
With Aspect
Ratio Control
(Screen size = 1.85:1)
The DVS 406 can convert the aspect ratio of a
video input signal to suit practically any display
format. Standard definition video and graphics
with an aspect of 4:3 can be horizontally and
vertically resized to fit plasma or widescreen
projection formats of 16:9. Widescreen video
can be reformatted to fit both standard and
wide aspect displays, improving the overall
perception of the displayed image. Both
models also feature three directly accessible
aspect ratio memory presets per input.
Keying
The keying feature allows the user to add
text or graphics to be displayed on the video
output. For example, a speaker’s name or
company logo can be keyed onto the display
for identification during a presentation.

Options
Serial Digital Interface (SDI)
The SDI input feature on the DVS 406 AD
allows digital video to be input into the scaler
in its original form from digital sources. This
eliminates two steps from the signal conversion
process since the SDI signal bypasses both the
decoding and the analog to digital conversion
process. In doing so, the signal
is routed directly to the deinterlacing circuitry, which in turn
delivers a higher quality signal to
the DVS 406 AD scaling engine.
IR Control with IR 901
The DVS 406 can be IR controlled with the
optional Extron IR 901 remote control device
for convenient set-up and operation.
Applications
Corporate
Staging
In corporate environments, the DVS 406 provides superior switching capabilities
while simplifying routing. Multiple sources can be seamlessly switched using
cuts and dissolves for professional quality business presentations. Centralized
control of video and audio input selection and picture adjustments through
either front panel or RS-232 and a third party controller provide overall
system flexibility. And with the superior scaling capabilities of the DVS 406,
video quality is enhanced for improved performance with a projector, making
it a perfect solution for corporate settings.
For rental and staging applications, the DVS 406 offers seamless
switching to ensure smooth transitions. Seamless switching of sources
is accomplished by locking the scaled output rate to the horizontal and
vertical frequencies of input one, thereby eliminating any video glitches
while switching. With the scaler’s keying feature, graphics and text can be
keyed to the display using the front panel buttons or RS-232 control. For
example, the name of the presenter can be shown or a company logo can
be displayed in the corner of the screen.
