2
Allocation: Decide which input terminals of your Plasma Enhancer®
to use for your AV device(s), and set aside high quality terminals to

to SDI terminal). Make sure all required cables are available.
3
Connection: Ensure all devices are powered OFF; connect the AV
device(s) to your Plasma Enhancer® with the appropriate terminals
and cables.
Tips: It is recommended that you

Plasma Enhancer, ensuring that it is mapped to digital output devices in Pixel
Perfect mode / 1:1 pixel mapping. Typically, a video processor cannot ensure it
can map to digital displays pixel by pixel to produce crystal clear image even if
it can output the native resolution of the display device. This is because
whether pixel clock and phase are perfectly matched or not can hardly be
verified.

Picture (PICT)
This menu allows you to arrange the
appearance of the video being displayed. An
extensive choice of parameters is available.
The Offset and Gain is an advanced option
when the color of the image is tainted. Use the
R (Red) G (Green) B (Blue) Offset / Gain the
tainted color appears on the image.
Aspect Ratio (AR)
AR is the ratio of image width to image
height. Common motion-picture ratios are
16:9 or 4:3. LCD s and Plasma screens are
usually 16:9. Always check your DVD
titles/disc for a suitable AR.
Deinterlacer (DEIN)
De-interlacing is a complex process that
converts a traditional interlaced video source
into the progressive scan format required by
modern high definition displays. A wide range
of de-interlacing choice is available.
Overscan (OVER)
Overscan results in enlarging the image a
little bit, so that only the major centre part of
the viewable image is shown on the display.
It is deliberately done to avoid any messy
artifacts at the edges. You can select
cropping 0-9% original picture for best
quality.
