Barco ScreenPRO II HD

Barco ScreenPRO II HD

Barco’s ScreenPRO-II HD uses four image layers to produce sophisticated effects, including transitioning backgrounds, transitioning picture-in-picture windows, wipes, dissolves and keys. An internal 8×2 analog video router provides universal analog sources to each scaler channel. In addition, up to two SD/HD SDI inputs are available for the scaled channels. Barco’s ScreenPRO-II features a low video processing delay of three input fields maximum.


  • Transitioning PiP or key on a transitioning background
  • Native high resolution background channels independent of the PiP/key processing channel

PiP Effects

  • PiP size from 1/8 to 8X source resolution
  • Adjustable PiP aspect ratio
  • PiP borders, including drop shadows and soft edge


  • Luminance key
  • Split key (key alpha and fill)
  • Reverse key (key on background)Native high resolution downstream key channel independent of PiP/key processing channels
  • Numerous mix and wipe effects

Video processing

  • 10-bit processing
  • 1:1 pixel sampling
  • Motion adaptive de-interlacing (SD & HD)
  • 3:2 and 2:2 pull down detect
  • Image cropping

Aspect ratio correction

  • Low video delay – less than 3 input fields
  • Programmable matte
  • Z-order control (priority layers) for overlapping PiPs or keys
  • Mixer dynamically re-assignable as a mixing (transitioning) PiP or as two individual   (split) non-transitioning PiPs or keys
  • Capture and storage of two LOGO images for use as full-screen image or downstream
  • key source
  • Look-ahead preview
  • Output synchronization: free-run or vertically locked to NTSC/PAL blackburst, CSync or HD tri-level sync Architecture supports future addition of optional output modules (for example, a recordable output)
