240 x 3 is 720, but 240 x 9 is 2160, the same resolution as 4k. Will it be possible for the ossc by a firmware update to have the line triple mode be able to triple the 720 to make it 4k or have the line doubled to 2160?
Any chance for a more powerful FPGA that can do 9x scaling instead of the max of…6x I believe now? Would be awesome to have line doubling that goes perfectly into 4k for all these new 4k screens. Specially now that some of the OLEDs have as low as 23ms lag with amazing quality blacks.
Just wishful thinking. Not even sure if it’s a possibility or not but this is a part of my ‘holy grail’ fantasy in my head.
I don’t believe there are any FPGAs available that can hit the pixel clocks required for 4K. Maybe on some thousand dollar dev boards or something, but they certainly aren’t commercially viable
I think the Xilinx ZynQ would be able to, but then the device will cost around 300-350 USD …
