Algolith Upgrades Software for Popular Mosquito Home Theater Video Enhancer

New Version Matches Image Settings With Video Sources, Streamlining
Mosquito’s Speed, Flexibility, Responsiveness and Ease of Use

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, May 10, 2007 — Algolith, a leading developer of video image enhancement solutions, has announced an upgrade to the operating software for its popular Mosquito Home Theater Video Enhancer that improves the device’s speed, flexibility, responsiveness and ease of use.

The change allows Mosquito users and installers to assign individual image enhancement settings for each video source in a Home Theater or AV system. The optimal enhancements for components such as a DVD players or a cable box can now be saved in memory and associated with a specific video input. The individual settings are shown onscreen and assigned to memory positions that correspond to the Mosquito’s six video inputs. Up to 18 different settings can be assigned to the Mosquito’s memory using the Save command on its remote control.

This ends the need of Mosquito owners to adjust individual settings each time he or she switches video sources. Since each Mosquito has six video inputs (four HDMI and two component), the refinement streamlines operation by making it significantly simpler and quicker to jump from one video source to another.

The image enhancement settings cover many of the Mosquito’s varied features, including its 3D temporal filter, 2D spatial filter, noise reduction algorithms, block artifact reducer, dynamic range stretcher, and detail enhancer.

The Mosquito, itself, is designed to reduce image noise on digital and HD video signals. Big-screen HD images don’t look as good as they should due to the compression of video signals by TV broadcasters and DVD makers. The larger the screen, the more noticeable the video artifacts. Operating in real time, the Mosquito filters and reduces video imperfections without losing detail, delivering exceptionally sharp, noise-free images. Users instantly see an improvement in picture quality.

The new software comes installed on all new Mosquitoes, and is easily added to previously purchased units in keeping with Algolith’s policy of designing “future-proof” products that can benefit from the company’s ongoing research programs. The software upgrade is available now as Version 2.05 at the Algolith Web site, www.algolith.com. It is free of charge to Mosquito dealers and owners.
