Video Interlacing was a common technique to double the video frame rate without the need to increase the bandwidth used for the video signal to be transmitted. A regular video signal would have all the pixel information for each frame were as an interlaced video frame only contains every second pixel line of each video frame but double the frame count.
Because mimoLive is processing video in full frames you may need to deinterlace video sources if they only can provide an interlaced video signal.
Depending on the video content there are several options to deinterlace the video frame:
- Even Field: This option doubles the even field lines in each frame. This works for all content however it cost image information.
- Simple Blend: The even and the odd lines are blend together. The result may look blurry but contains all the color information
- Smart Blend: The even and odd fields are only blended if the contrast suggests that there was movement between those frames. This option keeps the details but may fail for big movements.
