Denon DVD-5910 to use HQV chipset

November 5, 2004

hqvWhile little information can be confirmed about the Denon DVD-5910 (DVD-A1XV DVD abroad) one thing is for sure, this player won’t make anyone’s recommended budget component list for 2005. With a hinted retail of between $2000-2500 this player definitely isn’t a stocking stuffer. It’s speculated that the flagship DVD player will build on the features of the DVD-5900 with DVD-Audio SACD, HDMI, WMV-HD and alike, but according to a recent press release the Denon DVD-5910 will incorporate a new breed of video processors that are head and shoulders above the rest.

Incorporating Silicon Optix’s Relata HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) chipset, the 5910 may usher in a new level of quality in video reproduction. Originating from Teranex’s $60,000 broadcast and post-production platforms software, the HQV is said to offer de-interlacing, noise reduction, and detail enhancement like no other video chipset currently in use (ouch Faroudja). Denon is apparently the first consumer electronics manufacturer, to use the HQV chipset in a DVD player and they have high hopes that the addition will propel their products even higher in popularity, if that’s even possible.

**update** the DVD-5910 now appears on Denon’s website.
