Phi Algorithm Solutions Inc.’s  PAS-SharpScale IP is a high performance video scaler  with integrated sharpness enhancement. It uses directional image processing techniques to optimally process each pixel based on its surrounding characteristics. As a result it can optimally convert, sharpen and enhance an input image of one size to an output image of a different size.  Moreover, as a result of combining the enhancement and scaling process in a single step,  a significant increase in performance and a dramatic decrease in cost is achieved.
