DVDO Edge Video Processor Review Overview

DVDO Physical Appearance

The Edge is a sleek, low-profile unit.  It’s a matte black box about 2 inches high.  The front panel consists of a ¼” strip along the top and sides (hence the name “Edge”), that tapers in from the sides and down from the top to the bottom of the unit.  There are no front panel controls, just an HDMI input, power indicator light, IR receiving eye and the DVDO label.

The rear panel of the unit is where you’ll find everything you need.  As mentioned in the specs, there are a ton of inputs, along with two HDMI outputs and one optical digital audio output.  There is also an IR input for direct IR control and a mini-USB input for firmware upgrades.  The layout is clean and well-spaced.  See the layout below.
