The VisionHDQ Processor from Lumagen Provides High-Performance Home Theater Scaling and Switching

New Vision Series Processor Offers Quad Digital Inputs For Improved Switching Capabilities

CES, LAS VEGAS, NV, Jan. 5, 2006 — Lumagen, Inc., a specialist in the design and manufacture of products for the home and corporate theater markets, demonstrated its new VisionHDQ video processor at CES 2006 in Las Vegas.

The VisionHDQ provides a powerful, versatile backbone for high-definition (HD) projection-based viewing systems. Four DVI-I inputs offer extensive switching capabilities among multiple high-definition source devices (both analog and digital) for dramatic performance from digital HD projectors and high-performance plasma displays. The VisionHDQ supports analog and digital output at a full 1920 by 1080p, 60-Hertz progressive resolution, while remaining easy to program for other resolutions.

The VisionHDQ is perfectly suited for refining and enhancing the images presented by front projectors and top-level plasma displays. Powerful and versatile, it provides a display resolution up to 1080p for analog and digital outputs and superior video processing capabilities — features essential to creating an exceptional viewing experience, at home or in a corporate environment. Simply stated, it delivers the performance and capabilities of processors costing far more.

The VisionHDQ is equipped with ten inputs. In addition to the 4 DVI-I inputs with HDCP there are 2 SD/HD Component inputs, 2 S-Video inputs, 1 SDI input and 1 composite input. The versatile array allows transcoding between Component and RGB analog HD sources, image scaling, and per-pixel deinterlacing up to 1080p. The Component and DVI inputs automatically switch between SD and HD sources.

Signal output is via an analog and digital DVI-I connection or with a BNC analog output. 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 VisionHDQ 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, and programmable input and output color-space. A universal power supply, and optional ears for rack mounting enhance the processor’s reliability and placement.

The VisionHDQ is the newest component in the Lumagen’s Vision family of video processors, which deliver the video switching, deinterlacing, scaling, calibration functions and quality necessary for creating exceptional high-definition Home Theaters and corporate viewing experiences. Other members of the Vision family include the flagship VisionPro HDP, which is ideal for custom-installed, high-end Home Theaters and commercial video systems; the VisionHDP, which is similar to the new Vision HDQ put with fewer DVI or analog HD inputs; and the affordable VisionDVI, which significantly refines the images presented by plasma monitors, rear-screen TVs and other big-screen displays.

The VisionHDQ video processor will be available in February ’06 from authorized Lumagen dealers at a suggested price of $1,999. It was seen with Lumagen’s other fine products at South Hall 1, Booth 21413 in the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2006.
