Note: There has been no official word on any plans for a Neuros OSD HD. Any information relating to such a product is purely speculation.

Basically, this will be my ramblings on a possible HD OSD. -- pwarren

Desirable Features:

Connectors

  • HDMI, DVI, VGA, Component. Pick two? One digital, one analogue?
  • Digital Audio Output through HDMI? or stick to S/Pdif, will need HDMI for Dolby Digital + and TruHD (and dts stuff), might even require HDCP for that to work.
  • OR:
  • 6 (or more?) channel analog output, High Quality DAC's that can handle the HD audio technologies.
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • USB 2.0
  • Firewire?

Video Playback

  • Resolutions up to 1920x1080 (progressive)
  • h.264 AVC
  • WMV3 (aka WMV9, WMV HD, VC-1)
  • theora
  • mpeg4,2
  • quicktime
  • flv (youtube/flash)

Audio Playback

  • FLAC
  • monkeys audio
  • ogg
  • mp3
  • wma
  • aac
  • wav

Possible Issues

  • current DM320 Platform possibly not powerful enough (upgrades?)
  • heavy DSP use will be necessary for video decoding/encoding (not open source)
  • HDCP and other Digital Restrictions Management systems. I believe it's possible to do a HDMI connection without HDCP!
