The output is selectable as any computer resolution up to 2048x2048 at any vertical refresh rate and all HDTV resolutions up to 1080p.

All the functions can be controlled via a Windows Control Panel from the host PC via an RS-232 connection. An Infrared Port is located on the card’s mounting plate and an optional Remote Control Unit can be used for initial setup of the unit. An OSD (On-Screen Display) is provided to assist in setup. Most third party control systems interface directly with the C2-260 as with the entire C2 range of products.

Variable Zoom to 10X allows you to enlarge any part of the video image to fill the entire computer screen and position controls allow you to move around to any area desired. Variable Shrink to as little as 10% allows the image to fit onto most displays. The full bandwidth chroma sampling insures faithfully reproduced, high resolution colors.

TVOne's C2 260 also features a wide variety of additional capabilities such as scaling of the RGB or YPbPr input, Genlock, PIP, Chromakey, Lumakey and Mixing. The Key Mode allows computer graphics to be keyed over an external Composite or S-Video signal or vice versa. The keyed image may be faded in and out. Due to the 4:4:4 sampling format, precise keying at the pixel level can be achieved. The Mix Mode permits glitch-free mixing between the computer image and external video. The PIP Mode allows either of the video inputs to be inset in a window over the computer input.

TV One's exclusive AutoSet feature takes the hassle out of setup by automatically sizing and positioning the computer image to fit exactly on the video screen. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are retained even when power is switched off.

Edge Blending is a standard feature of the C2260. Because of the ability to 'feather' any or all of the edges, multiple images can be aligned vertically, horizontally, or both to create unusual displays. Using multiple units, there is no limit to the number of blended images. Edge Blending is not limited to high resolution RGB computer images, but can be applied to any input. Gamma correction is employed to compensate for many of the problems faced when blending between projectors. Special preparation of the video in advance is not necessary, since all processing is done within the unit.
