The quality of the image on your 2nd display can be adjusted to match the quality of your Video/CD+G library, or if you are using a computer with high specifications.
The following options are available under Options -> Video/CD+G -> Internal Resolution
Tip: The Options -> Video/CD+G menu options can also be accessed by right-clicking your mouse on the middle video display, when they are visible. This is the suggested method, as it is the quickest way to access the Video/CD+G features.
Optimized Definition (Recommended): Select this option if you are using the minimum system requirements. This option is best suited to using optimized video files.
Standard Definition (SD): Select this option if you are using the suggested system requirements. This option is best suited to VOB based video Ots files.
Enhanced Definition (ED): Select this option if you are using the suggested system requirements. This option is best suited to VOB based video Ots files. DVD quality clips (and lower) will be upscaled to Enhanced Definition during playback.
Note: This mode requires more system resources than SD, and some systems may struggle. To ensure smooth playback while scratching or mixing videos, an Intel Quad Core processor is recommended.
High Definition (HD) -- 720p: This option is available in OtsAV TV Broadcaster only. Non-720p content is up-scaled in real-time.
Note: This mode requires more system resources than ED. To ensure smooth playback when playing videos, an Intel Quad Core processor is recommended.
High Definition (HD) -- 1080p will be made available in future versions of OtsAV.
Tip: It is important to use equipment that matches the internal resolution you are using. For example, using Composite cables is suitable for Optimized Definition, but not for any higher definition. Below is a list of recommended hardware combinations to achieve the best results.
Optimized Definition: Composite or preferably an S-video cable. Any 4:3 or 16:9 TV or projector.
Standard Definition: S-video, Component, or VGA cable. 4:3 TV or preferably 16:9 TV or projector.
Enhanced Definition: Component, HDMI, or DVI cable. 16:9 TV or projector.
High Definition 720p: Component or HDMI cable. 16:9 TV or projector.
Tip: As well as using the right equipment, you should use an internal resolution that is suitable for most of your video files. MPEG1 is suitable for Optimized Definition, MPEG2 (DVD quality) is suitable for Standard Definition and Enhanced Definition, and MPEG2 HD 720p videos should use High Definition 720p.
