Affordable Full HD Projector Blends Cutting Edge Performance and Features with European Styling and Craftsmanship
CES Las Vegas, NV January 8, 2009 — DreamVision, a cutting-edge brand of residential video products for the home theatre specialist distributed by Audio Plus Services, debuted an exciting new projector here at CES. Dream’E (MSRP $5295) is an affordable, high performance model that integrates many of the latest technologies available on the market such as 1080p resolution (1920×1080 3-LCOS engine), integrated 2.35 Theatre Mode and HDMI 1.3 connections.
The new three-chip system utilized on the Dream’E features a trio of 1080p Full-HD panels at a native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Using the latest technological innovations, DreamVision engineers have achieved a breathtaking 15,000:1 contrast ratio through an improved light engine.
In addition to jaw-dropping clarity and detail, the Dream’E also delivers more accurate color reproduction within billion color graduations for lifelike realism.
The projector’s ultra-stylish chassis was created by the famed French designer, Antoine Beon, also known in home theatre for his designs with DreamBee and Focal. A contemporary work of art, Dream’E comes standard in black or white and is available to order in a rainbow of high gloss colors to suit any fine interior.
According to Daniel Jacques, founder and president of Audio Plus Services, “What sets DreamVision apart is their unique blend of latest display technologies with high quality materials, attention to detail and striking European design. The result is astonishing, especially for a DreamVision projector at such an affordable price point. Dream’E clearly represents one of the best values in video today.”
The demanding videophile will be especially pleased by DreamVision’s new Color Management System designed for advanced users and installers. Primary and secondary colors can be set independently to obtain the desired effect on the projected screen beyond the DreamVision D65 calibration.
2.35 Theater Mode
While the Dream’E is a turn-key, single-box solution, it is also available with the optional Wide System or 2.35 Theater System kits that will accommodate the most demanding installations. By featuring a true Cinemascope projection (2.35:1 to 2.50:1 native aspect ratio), the user can simply switch between HDTV and Cinemascope with the touch of a button. The throw ratio is 1.75-2.53:1.
The built-in video processor is powered by HQV technologies, featuring the latest video quality enhancements to make any video source, from 480i to 1080p, look like pristine Full-HD native resolution:
Digital noise reduction
Mosquito noise reduction
Digital transition improvement
Automatic Film and Video mode detection
Color Management System for color calibration.
Versatility and Ease of Installation
In addition to its impressive performance, the Dream’E is also a snap to install. The input panel, concealed on the side of the projector, offers quick access to a wide array of connections. The 1.5X zoom, combined with a variable electronic lens aperture, allows for perfect adjustment in virtually any residential installation.
The Dream’E will accommodate almost any kind of setup thanks to the -60/+60% vertical shift and the -30/+30% horizontal shift, seconded by the crisp, high quality Keystone -30%/+30% vertical and horizontal adjustments. In essence, the vertical and horizontal lens shift can solve any challenging configuration.
The DreamVision line, dedicated to the professional A/V specialist, is the perfect complement to the premium brands offered by Audio Plus Services.

Located in Paris and led by industry veteran and pioneer Jean-Claude YOUNES, this visionary French firm had its beginnings way back in 1982, being the very first company to import video projectors into the French Market.
Fourteen years later, Younes decided to create his own brand of cutting edge video products and he called it DreamVision. Since 1996, DreamVision has been developing and refining the latest advancements in digital display technology to provide state-of-the-art video products for Home Cinema.
