Optoma’s HD28DSE – World’s First DARBEE Visual Presence Enabled Projector

Orange, Ca — September 01, 2015 — In a major licensing win for home entertainment system products, DarbeeVision, Inc., a pioneer in the field of digital image enhancement, has licensed its Visual Presence technology to Taiwan-based Optoma for their Model HD28DSE DLP projector. The HD28DSE integrates real-time DARBEE Visual Presence image processing for enhanced depth, clarity and realism to the projected image. This is a first for projector systems, and a new exciting feature that creates best-in-class image quality. Optoma’s projectors are recognized for cutting-edge features and quality, making them a natural fit to partner with DarbeeVision.

“Being selected by Optoma is a wonderful confirmation that we provide high value for projected image quality. We know that the HD28DSE already provides superior image fidelity, so our enhancement technology will be seen at its best,” said Larry Pace, President, DarbeeVision. “We are certain that the HD28DSE system will provide the new standard for projector image quality.”

“Advancements of this kind, for image processing, don’t come along very often,” says Jon Grodem, Optoma Americas, Senior Director of Product Management. “Looking at the DARBEE Visual Presence solution, we understood very early on, that integrating this technology in our projectors would give us a major competitive advantage in the market. We evaluated the image enhancement and integration challenge extensively and concluded that benefit for image quality was profound and the implementation was simple. The ability to offer DARBEE Visual Presence, means that we will have a best-in-class image quality position and we are excited to see the market reaction to the new DARBEE enabled, HD28DSE, model.”

The HD28DSE is a high definition 1080p DLP projector with 3000 lumens, 30000:1 contrast ratio and weighs in at just 5.7 pounds. The HD28DSE is an ideal video projector for movie watching and gaming in the home or on the road.

Two HDMI ports allow the HD28DSE to easily connect to laptops, Blu-ray/DVD players, gaming consoles and digital set-top boxes. MHL connectivity on port one makes it easy to wirelessly share content from MHL devices, such Roku’s Streaming Stick, tablets and smartphones, to connect directly to the projector to play back music and video, view pictures and even share webpages and other user-generated digital media content.

Grodem added, “HD28DSE is a step-up from our base home theater line with more powerful image performance with brilliant color and vivid visual presentation. With native support for MHL, it also adds more connectivity options to the consumers who now have media content everywhere: in the cloud, from the gaming console, or from PC and tablet.”

The HD28DSE is 3D-ready for an even more immersive gaming or movie experience. 3D content can be displayed from almost any 3D source including 3D Blu-ray players, 3D broadcasting and the latest generation gaming consoles. 3D glasses are sold separately.

DARBEE Visual Presence represents a major advancement in the field of image processing. This enhancement technology leverages a discovery, made by Paul Darbee, that you can restore the image depth and quality that was lost at the moment of capture or creation. Images and video do not have to be flat anymore because DARBEE Visual Presence restores the dynamic range and realism that is lost during capture, compression and scaling. This makes DARBEE Visual Presence the ultimate image quality solution for all digital image and video content, no matter where in the video chain it is applied.
