HQView520 Universal HQV™ Scaler–Switcher-Scan Converter with Warp, Edge Blend & 3G-SDI In/Out - Use as a routing switcher and universal interface for 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, DVI or HDMI.
Optoma have worked in partnership with Calibre to produce special versions of Calibre’s edge blending and warping products optimised for use with our ProScene projectors. This unique collaboration significantly reduces the complexity and configuration time required to edge blend multiple ProScene projectors and is covered by the industry leading ProScene technical support services should you require assistance with your edge blending project.
Edge blending explained
Some applications call for an image that is brighter and higher resolution than can be provided by one projector. In this situation a single image can be created from multiple projectors but unless done well the image will show visible bands where the projected images overlap
Edge-blending technology solves this problem by eliminating the visible banding and creating a single bright, high resolution image across the screen.
Edge blending multiple projectors in an array makes it possible to create very bright, high-resolution very wide projection displays. By using the HQView320 or HQView520 you can precisely control multiple, edge-blended images seamlessly, quickly and easily.
Designed with the end-user applications in mind, the HQView320/520 let you expertly edge-blend multiple, curved images seamlessly, on all four sides, for an unlimited number of projectors. Precisely control edge-blended images and warp displays to fit almost any projection surface – flat or curved.
The Optoma Advantage
Traditionally blending solutions are time-consuming and complicated to set up with many incompatibilities between blending solutions and projectors. The Optoma blending solution removes this issue. Each Optoma ProAV projector model has been painstakingly tested with the HQView320/520 and a series of optimised presets developed that greatly reduces the complexity and time required to setup blending projects.
If you do require help with your blending project, uniquely, the industry leading Optoma ProAv support team is on hand to support your complete blending project – the blending boxes and the projectors as a single system. This greatly simplifies the support process for you and enables us to assist you get your blending projects back on track quickly and efficiently.
For more than ten years Optoma has been one of the world’s foremost projector designers and manufacturers - amongst the very few companies that focus exclusively on projectors.
Today the Optoma range represents the evolution of projection expertise, honed and refined by manufacturing and supporting millions of projectors the world over. This knowledge and skill has been distilled into our products and support services which are designed specifically for demanding professional applications.

Harnessing the power of the ReonTM video processor from IDT, running state of the art HQV algorithms with expertly designed hardware and firmware from Calibre, HQView520 is a highly flexible image scaler and scan converter which provides stunning image quality for professional, broadcast and corporate AV users.
HQview520 features 4-sided soft edge blend for seamless blending of multiple projectors and includes flexible geometry correction functions able to correct image shape and projector misalignment by dragging and dropping each image corner, or by pin/barrel, rotation or by keystone and rotation.
Full warp mapping is also supported by HQView520. A PC application is included for easy warp map creation or third-party generated warp maps can also be processed from automatic image alignment systems making HQView520 ideal for dual overlaid projector alignment in 3D systems.
HQView520 has 3G-SDI input and out connectivity with backwards compatibility with HDSDI and SDSDI. A Genlock input is provided for studio/staging, compatible with bi or tri-level sync or black & burst.
