Note: Scalers Defined...
Scalers are devices placed between the source and the display that enable the conversion of an input video signal from one format to a different resolution. Incoming video signals from different video source outputs (composite, component, HDMI) are converted to user-selectable output resolutions up to 1920x1200 or 1080p. Scalers can improve the quality of the image if the display has an inexpensive built-in scaler. This is done by outputting the video set to the native resolution of the display, bypassing its internal scaler. This ensures the best quality video possible.
Input of a DVI-D signal (or display of an HDMI signal on a DVI-D monitor) requires an additional DVI to HDMI cable or adapter.
