JVC Selects DVDOs A/V Media Processor for D-ILA Projectors



Campbell, CA — July 11, 2006 — Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc. (ABT), creator of award-winning DVDO high-performance video processing systems, announced today that its A/V Media Processor has been selected by JVC for use with their DLA-HD2K and DLA-HD10K home theater projection systems. JVC recently announced the new systems along with a general re-pricing of configurations.

“These new configurations and pricing give JVC a more competitive position in the market, while providing our customers an affordable home theater option with the best picture quality. Our popular DLA-HD2K model is now available with a DVDO processor for under $12,000 retail,” said Carl Mandelbaum, national marketing manager, display products, JVC Professional Products Company. “We’re known in the marketplace for providing the highest quality home theater projection systems. Joining forces with DVDO further strengthens our mission to provide the most affordable, high quality projection solutions available.”
The DVDO A/V media processor has a total of 12 video inputs, with four HDMI, and nine audio inputs including digital HDMI audio, digital coaxial, optical (Toslink), and analog (L/R) to offer advanced connectivity. The inclusion of the rapidly emerging HDMI connector makes this a completely digital-ready A/V Hub. ABT’s Precision Video Scaling technology is active in the A/V hub and based on a proprietary video scaling engine that can independently scale an image horizontally and vertically to achieve an outstanding picture quality for JVC’s projectors. The scaling engine is completely flexible, accepting standard (480i, 576i) and high definition (720p and 1080i) inputs along with various computer resolutions (VGA/XGA), then outputting 1080p (1920×1080) with additional digital display features including zoom, pan, overscan, underscan, image shift, and border controls.

Each video source can be adjusted independently for brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and sharpness. The adjustments can then be locked into non-volatile memory to provide the optimal picture settings for each video source, versus just one setting for the projector. Other features of the A/V media processor include multiple standard and custom aspect ratio controls, independent horizontal, vertical image stretch, and the ability to eliminate “black bars” from the top, bottom, left, or right of a screen display. Users can also set up to ten distinct display profiles for easy “one button” access. The A/V Hub conveniently adjusts to desired picture preferences and processes to optimal image quality for all video sources with only “one wire” connected to the projector.

JVC’s renowned DLA-HD2K projector was one of the first models in the industry to feature native 1920 x 1080 chips. Since its introduction two years ago, the projector has become a favorite in Hollywood screening rooms because of its silky smooth, film-like reproduction. This past year, JVC introduced the DLA-HD10K with long-throw and short-throw lens options as well as improved contrast ratio and greater color accuracy. With restructured pricing and more flexible processor options on the HD2K, both models are expected to gain popularity in the highly competitive home theater marketplace.
DVDO’s Senior Director of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gary Chappell said, “Our innovative DVDO processor technology is the perfect complement to JVC’s D-ILA projectors. We are confident that the new projector systems will set a precedent for high definition video performance and value.”

Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc. is engaged in the sale of its semiconductor technology to OEMs for design into new video products, and also maintains a global distribution and sales network for its DVDO system-level product line. ABT is the original creator of DVDO which developed and marketed the first single chip video de-interlacing technology that supports 3:2 and 2:2 pull-down. Other trademarked technologies included in ABT’s Video Reference Series (VRS) brand include: RightRate, AutoCUE-C, Precision AV LipSync, and the recently announced Precision Deinterlacing.
