The Video Deinterlacer converts live incoming interlaced video streams into progressive video streams. Interlaced images might have temporal motion between the two fields that comprise an interlaced frame. The conversion to a progressive format recombines these two fields into one single progressive scan frame. The combining of interlaced video streams results in unsightly motion artifacts in the progressive output image. For this reason, the Video Deinterlacer can be configured to use three field buffers and produce progressive frames based on a combination of spatial and temporal processing.

Note: Deinterlacer algorithms do not change the frame rate. For Example, if the input is 1080i60 then the output will be 1080p60.
