The ICs built-in super resolution circuit improves image detail, while an integrated noise reduction function analyzes and detects the edge and flat regions in the image, reducing random noise and mosquito noise, a digital compression artifact that appears near the image edge. A highlight enhancer function to emphasize brightness and brilliance, and an image quality tuning function for color management and gamma correction, are also integrated into the chip. TC90232XBG adds new functionality to LCD TVs and monitors.
