DataPath Hardware De-Interlace settings in 3.2.1 Posted by Ryan Brown on 14 January 2014 03:46 PM
Information: In Hippotizer Version 3.2.1 we have added the ability to access the hardware de-interlace settings for Data Path Dual HD-SDI (SDI2) Capture cards. This setting can be found in the Dr. Hippo application and must be set before starting Hippotizer and Zookeeper. If you plan to capture interlaced signals (such as 1080i) it is good practice to enable the hardware de-interlace. Please remember to disable de-interlacing for progressive signals as this will affect the aspect ratio of the captured video. The hardware de-interlace is disabled by default.
Hippotizer also includes a software based de-interlace which can be accessed from the zookeeper. The software system is distinct from hardware settings and will work for any capture card you may have, while hardware settings apply only to DataPath cards.
