Vidikron Introduces Three New Models to its Flat Panel Lineup

The VL-52, the VL-57 LCD and the VP-5000VHD flat panels deliver premium performance and custom-friendly features that are unrivaled in the custom home theater category.

Denver, CO — CEDIA EXPO 2007 — September 6, 2007 — Booth 510 — Vidikron, a leader in the design and manufacturing of home theater video display technologies, today announced three new high-performance HD flat-panel displays: the VL-52, the VL-57 and the VP-5000VHD.

The new displays have been designed for the discriminating enthusiast with the highest video quality expectations. In keeping with Vidikron’s commitment to excellence, numerous custom installation-friendly features are standard, including comprehensive ISF calibration capabilities, a robust assortment of inputs, and full integration ability with today’s latest and most advanced home automation systems.

“Even though flat-panel displays are available almost everywhere today, a select group of dealers and home theater enthusiasts demand nothing but the very best,” said Scott Hix, vice president and general manager, Planar System Inc., Home Theater. “For the unique customers who look to an educated dealer for the highest-quality display solutions as part of their home integration, Vidikron delivers these new models with the same superior engineering and attention to detail that have distinguished Vidikron in the high-end home theater market for so many years.”

The DView VL-52 (52-inch) and VL-57 (57-inch) offer premium features and performance for the LCD flat-panel home theater category. Both offer 1080p native resolution, state-of-the-art performance and generous feature sets. Vidikron’s exclusive internal video processing offers unparalleled imagery, artifact-free scaling and pristine reproduction of both native film and native video formats. The models also include the complete Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) calibration suite to deliver the absolute best image possible under multiple viewing conditions. Custom-friendly capabilities include an RS-232 automation interface with discrete on/off, input selection and aspect ratio control on the remote control. The VL-52 and VL-57 also include integrated audio systems that offer detachable two-way speaker systems and 10W RMS power per channel. Two HDMI inputs with HDCP provide cutting-edge connectivity, while VirtualWide mode converts 4:3 images to the displays’ native 16:9 without compromising image integrity.

The PlasmaView VP-5000VHD 1080p plasma display monitor is the beneficiary of Vidikron’s advanced engineering and design features. With a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, it delivers state-of-the-art performance for those who demand true high-definition capability. Its external VHD Controller/Processor includes Vidikron’s exclusive Imagix video processing, which maintains a pure digital signal path from input to output, and provides a broad array of video input choices. For glitch-free custom installation, the VP-5000VHD includes IR and RS-232 capabilities with discrete input selection and power on/off. Multiple aspect ratio control is available with Vidikron’s IntelliWide mode, which offers the ability to view standard video formats in widescreen without loss of image quality, while Vidikron’s Dynamic Pixel Protection protects the panel from stationary image burn.
