The MVIP (Mini Video Image Processor) is a Eurorack module, designed to fit into audio synthesizer racks made by Doepfer and other manufacturers. It is a stand alone video module, not part of the larger video synth system that I am still developing.
The MVIP provides a number of simple image processing functions for processing standard definition composite video. It has one composite video input and one composite video output. It works in PAL or NTSC and automatically detects the format of the video that you plug into it.
It has five control voltage inputs that accept +/-5 volt signals to control various parameters. The control voltages can change the brightness, the color hues, they can swap the digital bits of the digitized video being processed, and they can select between all of the different processing functions and modes.
Unlike the larger VideoSynth system that I am designing, this module does not require any other video modules to work. The larger video synth system will require video input, sync and output modules, plus whatever video processing modules that you want. The MVIP doesn't require any of those. It works by itself. On the other hand it also only processes a single video input and doesn't combine multiple video signals like the larger system.
