Vidikron To Ship Vision™ Series Model 60 Projector

The Model 60 Implements a 3-Chip D-ILA™ Configuration For Outstanding Performance and Pure Video Image Reproduction

UNION CITY, CALIFORNIA - September 11, 2004 - Vidikron, designer and manufacturer of high definition home theater video display technology, is pleased to announced that the exciting D -ILA™ (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) Model 60 is scheduled to ship October 1, 2004. The Model 60 offers high quality home theater video performance in a chassis with Italian inspired styling and a soft white finish to blend seamlessly with any decor.

"This exciting technology has come a long way and is capable of producing some of the
smoothest images available in digital projection. Tremendous detail, richly saturated colors and
outstanding black level reproduction are all hallmarks of the Model 60. Not to mention the
incredible styling that makes this projector a gorgeous centerpiece for any environment," said
Jim McGall, Vidikron's vice president of sales and marketing at Vidikron.

The Model 60's optical light engine design and Vidikron's incorporation of three D -ILA chips,
rather than a lower cost one -chip design, result in exceptionally low noise without the flicker and the "rainbow effect" that often plague one -chip digital video display devices. Vidikron engineers
have also paid careful attention to accurate gray scale tracking and true 6500K color reproduction capability. Together, all of these engineering achievements produce the most pleasing and film -like high -resolution pictures imaginable.

With 1000 ANSI lumens of light output (CSMS™ Light Output of 17.9 ft -Lamberts) and an
800:1 contrast ratio, the Model 60 offers state -of -the -art picture quality on screens as large as
eight feet wide. Vidikron's outstanding internal video processing with 3:2 film detection
circuitry and the Model 60's full HDTV compatibility (with outboard tuner/decoder or satellite
receiver) make it versatile enough to handle every video source.

In addition, Vidikron's multiple aspect ratio control includes its unique IntelliWide™ mode for
viewing standard video formats in widescreen without loss of image quality. Discrete IR and
RS -232 controls make custom installation seamless, while discrete source and aspect ratio selection accommodate any automation control system.
