Video Converter - EZscan II

EZscan II
Video Converter

EZscan™ II is a universal video processor that supports both scaling and scan conversion. EZscan™ II receives video in various formats, processes the video, and re-transmits the video in a user-selected format. EZscan™ II supports the following video formats on both the input and output: RS-343, RS-170, NTSC, PAL, STANAG, DVI-I (TMDS and analog RGB).

Standard and custom video conversion

In addition to converting analog RGB for TFT panels, the EZscan II is great for digitizing interlaced video formats such as RS-343, RS-170, and STANAG. The EZscan II can also be programmed to support custom or non-standard video formats.

Flexible solution

The EZscan II supports a wide range of video formats and special video requirements. The EZscan II can be configured to work across a wide range of applications, minimizing new design work and sparing requirements.

Scaling, Windowing, and Area-of-Interest Control

  • Independent horizontal and vertical scaling
  • Programmable image position within larger background area for both input and output

Rotate video, flip left to right or top to bottom

The EZscan II supports video rotation (in 90 degree increments) for applications with sideways mounted displays, cameras, or other video sources. Video can also be flipped from top to bottom or left to right for specialty applications.

Powerful Configuration Utility

Use Westar’s EZscan II configuration utility to define the input timing, output timing, keying scheme, and the area-of-interest within the source video and where to map the AOI within the output resolution. The configuration utility supports user-defined:

  • Input Timing and Output Timing
  • Video Scaling and Area-Of-Interest (AOI)
  • Video Rotation
  • Border Colors
  • Image Flip (Horizontal and Vertical)
