VIVIDUS Technology Corrects or Enhances Image and Skin-Tone Quality

2004 INTERNATIONAL CES LAS VEGAS, NV (Booth #17850, South Hall) - Norcent Technology, Inc., a marketer of high -quality, competitively priced home entertainment, computer, and memory products, is adding the VIVIDUS (Clear, Sharp, and Colorful) video chipset to all of its 2004 plasma monitors and LCD -TVs. The company will be introducing the new units at 2004 International CES.

"Our goal at Norcent is to offer consumers the best quality and value in audio -video products," remarked Jeannie Vogler, Norcent Vice President of Sales. "By including the VIVIDUS chipset in all of our plasma monitors and LCD -TVs, we are giving consumers state -of -the -art video products with leading technology to improve image quality incorporated right into the units. Viewers will be stunned at the clarity and faithful color reproduction this chipset produces. As a bonus to retailers and consumers alike, the new chip does not adversely affect the cost of the units." The Norcent VIVIDUS chipset offers virtually 30 -bit (1.073 -billion) natural color performance, producing amazingly high -clarity images. At the same time, it smoothes rough skin and freckles from noise amplification, providing truer skin -tone images. The result is that the coloring of on -screen characters appears more life -like.

The chipset also provides: Color -tracking and de -tracking; local detail recovery (that automatically and continuously adapts, in real time, to provide an optimal image); and over -driving capability. It has a power consumption usage of under 0.2 watts.

Norcent offers 42" and 50" (meas. diag.) plasma monitors in both standard (852x480) and high -resolution (1024x1024) models. Its lineup of LCD -TVs include 15", 17", 18", 20", 23", 27", 30" sizes.
