Optoma to launch projector with Darbee built-in
Available mid-October priced £699
Optoma has become the first manufacturer to announce a projector with built-in Darbee image processing.
The HD28DSE home cinema projector also boasts 3,000 lumens and a Full HD (1080p) panel. We know quite a lot of our readers are big Darbee processing fans, particularly on the big-screen when images can look softer, and the tech uses ‘neuro-biologic’ algorithms to enhance detail and depth in skin tones, textures, and reflective surfaces. Even if you don’t like the results, you have to love the term neuro-biologic algorithms.
Larry Pace, President, of DARBEEVision Inc. said, “Through extensive collaboration, we are pleased to have our proprietary DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology incorporated into Optoma’s premium home cinema projector - HD28DSE. DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology is important, because it can correct the flatness and loss of realism of every image ever taken. DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology uses computation to process images in the same way the brain does, resulting in revolutionary and never-before-seen levels of depth, clarity, object separation, and realism for an immersive and lifelike viewing experience.”
Pace added, “We chose Optoma as our exclusive projector partner because we recognise that Optoma’s goal of advancing excellent image quality aligns perfectly with DARBEEVision’s mission. With Optoma’s expertise in integrating ground-breaking image enhancement features into projectors, and its reach in the HD market, we are excited that DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology will be seen and appreciated by even more people worldwide.”
Optoma’s Head of Product Marketing, Justin Halls said, “Optoma strives to provide the best home entertainment experience, which has been proven by our continuously leading position as the number one 1080p projector brand in the UK for the last five years, and is now strengthened further by our collaboration and exclusive partnership with DARBEEVision.”
The HD28DSE is a high definition 1080p DLP projector with 3,000 lumens, 30,000:1 contrast ratio and weighs 2.58kg. There are two HDMI inputs including MHL connectivity, making it easy to share content from other devices. The HD28DSE also includes a powered USB output – ideal for powering devices such as Amazon’s FireTV stick or other media devices that require USB power or AC power.
Halls added, “HD28DSE is a step-up from our base home entertainment range with more powerful image performance, brilliant colours and vivid visual presentation. With native support for MHL, it adds more connectivity options for consumers who now have media content everywhere: in the cloud, from the gaming console, or from PC and tablet.”
The HD28DSE has a lamp life of up to 8,000 hours when the lamp mode is set to dynamic. The HD28DSE is 3D ready with glasses sold separately.
