Lumagen Introduces the Vision™ Series Home Theater Video Processors and Scalers

New Processors Enhance Image Quality on Plasma, Rear-Screen and Other Large Displays, While Setting New Affordability Standard

Lumagen, Inc., a specialist in the design and manufacture of products for the home and commercial theater markets, introduces its VisionDVI™, VisionHDP™ and VisionPro™ HDP video processors to the custom installation market during CEDIA. All of Lumagen's video processors deliver the video switching, deinterlacing, scaling, calibration functions and top performance necessary for creating exceptional high -definition Home Theaters.


The VisionDVI is the most affordable component in Lumagen's Vision™ family of video processors, dramatically enhancing the quality of all analog, DVI and HDMI signal sources for analog and digital high -definition displays with resolutions up to 768p. Equipped with two standard -definition and high -definition (SD/HD) digital inputs, and six analog inputs - two of which are SD/HD - the VisionDVI can transcode, process and output video as either analog or digital signals, and accept computer input for switching. The VisionDVI significantly refines the images presented by plasma monitors, rear -screen TVs and other big -screen displays. It includes user -adjustable image enhancement and a programmable output resolution from 480p to 768p, plus 1080i.

The VisionHDP provides a powerful and versatile video processor for high -definition (HD) projection -based viewing systems. In addition to extensive switching capabilities, it dramatically enhances the quality of analog and digital HD projectors and high -performance plasma displays through its six analog and two DVI/HDMI inputs, and accepts computer input for switching. It supports analog and digital output at a full 1920 by 1080p, 60 -Hertz progressive resolution, while remaining easy to program for other resolutions. It is perfectly suited for refining and enhancing the images presented by front projectors and top -level plasma displays.

The flagship VisionPro HDP is the ultimate video processor for professional -grade Home Theater and commercial video systems. Boasting BNC connections for all analog video signals, it supports extensive calibration and enhancement features to fine -tune the critical characteristics of image quality, and accepts computer input for switching. The VisionPro HDP is rack -mountable and provides 4 digital and 6 analog inputs to accommodate the switching needs of the largest, most elaborate systems. Analog and digital signal outputs are supported at a full 1920 by 1080 progressive resolution at 60 Hertz, and are easily programmable for other resolutions. The VisionPro HDP is ideal for custom -installed, high -end video systems. It supports standard -, enhanced - and high -definition video formats as well as several PC formats.

Key features for both the VisionHDP and VisionPro HDP 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. All Lumagen processors have 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.

Flexible and versatile, Lumagen video processors provide all the features essential to a superb theater experience at home or in a commercial environment, while setting a new standard in value by delivering the performance and capabilities of processors costing far more.
