Theta Adds Digital Video Interface to Compli Multi -Format DVD Player

New High -Performance DVI Card Enhances Theta Compli's
Versatility and Image Quality by Providing Pure Digital Interface


CEDIA EXPO, Indianapolis, Sept. 10, 2004 -Theta Digital, acclaimed as America's most advanced manufacturer of high -end digital audio and video products, introduces a Digital Video Interface (DVI) Card for its remarkably versatile Compli Multi -Format DVD Player at the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) Expo 2004, beginning today in Indianapolis.

The new DVI Card equips the Theta Compli with an additional image -enhancing digital signal option, and allows the Compli to interface with the DVI or HDMI inputs of the latest generation of plasma displays and LCD and DLP projectors. The DVI Card's signal outputs at 480p and is NTSC and PAL compatible.

A pure digital interface eliminates transitions from the digital realm to the analog, and back again. While Theta is respected for its extraordinarily fine digital to analog conversions, the best conversion is no conversion, especially when advanced technology allows conversions to be avoided.

Theta's new digital video interface employs the latest techniques and the finest parts available. The DVI board incorporates the best DVI transmitter and 480p deinterlacer available from Silicon Image. The board also uses Theta's exclusive Ultra Sync II technology to re -clock data and reduce jitter, assuring a smoother, more engaging and film -like image.

Three separate regulated power supplies are dedicated to the DVI board. In addition, because video signals are more delicate than audio signals, they are treated with exceptional care For example, Theta shields the signals from numerous forms of interference, notably radio frequency (RF) interference, generated by dozens of electronic components in most homes, even including the digital signal processing inside other entertainment products.

The Theta Compli combines a high -quality DVD and CD transport with state -of -the -art processing to come as close as A/V technology allows to serving as a universal format source component. The Compli's unique blend of uncompromised performance, flexibility and advanced technology provides installation professionals with a high -level solution to many of the challenges posed by technology's multiplying entertainment formats.

Compli lets you play nearly any audio, video, and image format: DVD -Audio, DVD -Video, DVD -R, DVD -RW, SACD, Audio CD, Video CD, CD -R, and CD -RW. The Compli is also compatible with CD -R/RW, DVD -R/RW and MP3 formatted material, with some restrictions.

The new DVI Card augments Compli's already comprehensive connection panel, which features six -channel analog audio outputs; digital outputs for PCM, DTS and Dolby Digital; an RS232 control; and Composite, S -Video, Component and 480p video outputs.

Encased in a handsome black chassis with a silver or black front panel, the Theta Compli Multi -Format Player with DVI is available now from authorized Theta dealers for a suggested price of $5,900. Other versions of Compli start at $4,500.

It can be seen with Theta's other fine products in Booth 855, Indiana Convention Center, during CEDIA EXPO.
