New Product: DVDO VP20 Video Processor
BAR NONE You can't stand black bars on your screen, but you still want to watch movies as the directors intended. DVDO's VP20 video processor might offer you a decent compromise, as its Precision Video Scaling II can scale the horizontal and vertical aspects of the picture independently. It can't change the laws of geometry, but it should let you watch Lawrence of Arabia without squishing Omar Sharif's head.
THE DIRECTOR With three HDMI inputs, the VP20 has more digital high-def connectors than most receivers. But whatever you jack in - DVD, HDTV, VHS, laserdisc - it all comes out as HD-format video on the other side. $1,699 dvdo.com 866-423-3836
