Picture Control Suite offers 13 specific video adjustments that sustain an optimum picture level, such as Progressive Motion, PureCinema, YNR, CNR, BNR, MNR, Detail, White Level, Black Level, Black Setup, Gamma Correction, Hue, and Chroma Level.

And its Triple High-Definition NR features component frame NR, which lowers unwanted Gaussian noise; Block NR minimizes mosaic-like (block) artifacts, and Mosquito NR reduces fluttery-type noise that dances around the edge of a subject.
