Lumagen, Inc. introduces its VisionPro HDP video processor to the custom installation market at CEDIA Expo 2005 beginning today in Indianapolis.

The VisionPro HDP is the ultimate video processor for professional-grade Home Theater and corporate video systems. Boasting BNC connections for all analog video signals, it supports extensive calibration and enhancement features to fine-tune the critical characteristics of image quality, and accepts computer input for switching. The VisionPro HDP is rack-mountable and provides 4 digital and 6 analog inputs to accommodate the switching needs of the largest, most elaborate systems. Analog and digital signal outputs are supported at a full 1920 by 1080 progressive resolution at 60 Hertz, and are easily programmable for other resolutions.

The VisionPro HD is the flagship component in Lumagen’s Vision family of video processors, which deliver the video switching, deinterlacing, scaling, calibration functions and quality necessary for creating exceptional high-definition viewing experiences in Home Theaters AND corporate environments. Other members of the Vision family include the VisionHDP, which is perfectly suited for front projectors and top-level plasma displays; and the affordable VisionDVI, which significantly refines the images presented by plasma monitors, rear-screen TVs and other big-screen displays.

The VisionPro HDP is ideal for custom-installed, high-end video systems. It supports standard-, enhanced- and high-definition video formats as well as several PC formats. Video inputs are converted to progressive video if needed, then scaled to the video output resolution. Powerful, flexible and versatile, the processor provides features essential to maximizing the output of high-performance theater systems, while delivering the quality and capabilities of processors costing far more.

The VisionPro HDP is equipped with ten inputs, including 2 Composite/S-Video inputs, 2 Composite/S-Video/SD Component inputs, 2 SDI inputs, 2 SD/HD Component inputs, and 2 DVI with HDCP inputs. The versatile array allows transcoding between Component and RGB analog HD sources, image scaling, and per-pixel deinterlacing. The Component and DVI inputs automatically switch between SD and HD sources.

Signal output is via a digital DVI-D connection, with a BNC analog output also available. An RS232 interface is provided for upgradeability and control functions.

Key features include user-adjustable image enhancement, a built-in 10-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with over-sampling for analog outputs, a programmable output resolution from 480p to 1080p, plus 1080i; the ability to zoom in on any source by up to 33 percent; selectable aspect ratios of 4:3, 16:9 and 1.85; a programmable output aspect ratio from 1.33 to 2.35; and 2:2, 3:2 and 3:3 pull-down for film sources.

The VisionPro HDP automatically detects NTSC, PAL and SECAM signals, and also includes four configuration memories per input with unique set-up parameters for each memory; an extensive suite of test patterns; Gamma, Y/C-delay and multipoint grayscale calibration; CUE and ICP filtering, programmable input and output color-space, and a universal power supply for reliability during power fluctuations.

The VisionPro HDP comes in a professional-grade case with ears for rack mounting, and a machined, black-anodized front panel featuring an LCD display. The processor is packaged with an infrared remote control, 2 Component RCA-to-BNC cables, and 2 S-Video-to-BNC cables.

The VisionPro HDP video processor is available now from authorized Lumagen dealers at a suggested price of $2,499. It can be seen with Lumagen’s other fine products at Booth 19A in the Indianapolis Convention Center during CEDIA Expo 2005.
