Yamaha Projector Sets New Bar For Video Excellence By Selecting Silicon Optixs HQV

San Jose, CA–(Sept 9, 2005)–Yamaha Electronics Corporation has developed the first front projector that fully integrates the HQV processor powered by Teranex. The DPX-1300 (MSRP $12,495.95) will be available in October and can be seen during the CEDIA 2005 show at Yamaha’s booth (#166) in the Indianapolis Convention Center and at the Silicon Optix 13,000 sq. ft. HQV exhibition in the Grand Hall at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Union Station.

“We chose the Realta HQV device because it was clear to us that the maturing and demanding home theater marketplace was looking for better video performance, especially as screen sizes increase and so many styles of video, both standard definition and high definition, are becoming available to the consumer,” said Bart Greenberg, Yamaha Electronic Corporation National Sales Manager. “And it was also clear to us that Silicon Optix/Teranex had the video processing expertise to meet this growing demand.”

The Realta HQV device encompasses true 10-bit video processing, full four-field motion adaptive video de-interlacing for both standard definition and high definition signals, temporal-recursive noise reduction, automatic multi-cadence detection, and pixel-based detail enhancement. It also utilizes the same video processing power–1 trillion operations per second–as the famous $60k Teranex Xantus box. In addition to powerful video processing, the Realta device incorporates an advanced scaling engine that uses as many as 1024 taps to scale resolutions up and down, as well as for correcting extreme keystone angles in both horizontal and vertical dimensions.

“We are pleased to be working with a front projector company that cares about producing the highest quality picture imaginable,” said Dennis Crespo, VP of Marketing, Silicon Optix. “Yamaha knows what high quality means and we’re thrilled that HQV is a part of the new DPX-1300. Home theaters around the world are ready for a serious upgrade!”

The Realta HQV processor has already received numerous awards and accolades, including the “Best of Innovations” award for the Embedded Technologies category at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show, “Most Promising New Technology” and “Most Exciting New Company” from The Perfect Vision, “Best Buzz of CEDIA” from Insight Media, AVGuide Monthly’s “Best Product Overall,” Red Herring’s “Top 100 Innovators” award, Fred Kahn’s “Silver Best of CES” award, and most recently “Best Picture of the Show” at the Home Entertainment 2005 Show in New York City, from Tom Norton of UltimateAVmag.com.
