SX50 100z Zoom Plus?

Anyone know what this is?

"Those who feel that a 50x zoom isn't enough can boost the range to 100x with the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS's digital zoom, which Canon calls 100x Zoom Plus. "

Is this some special digital zoom that tries to enhance image quality. The camera has 4x digital zoom, but that's 200x, no?
