Another R600 news post, VR Zone discovered the upcoming ATI R600 graphics cards feature a Theater 200 video decoder chip, which is also used by the old All-in-Wonder 9600 XT card:
Theater 200 can capture signals from composite, S-Video and component video inputs and the dual 12-bit ADCs will maintain the quality of the captured videos. It also features adaptive 3-line 2D comb filter to improve composite input quality. It would be nice if ATi is to use the newer and more powerful video decoder called Theater 550 which features hardware accelerated MPEG2 encoding, 3D comb and 5-line 2D comb filter.
