Vutec Introduces Vision XFT Tri -Plex

Pompano Beach, FL (April 25,2006) -Vutec Corporation unveiled its Vision XFT Tri -Plex system at the Electronic Home Expo in Orlando, Florida in April to meet the new technology needs of the rapidly expanding home theater market.

"Vision XFT is unique to the home theater market," said Howard Sinkoff, president of Vutec Corporation, "by offering viewers a flat -fixed, vertical masking system for anamorphic lens projectors that can maintain constant vertical height for all three standard aspect ratios -while eliminating the shadows that plague curved screen systems."

Vision XFT achieves this optimum viewing experience by being designed by Vutec to leave no space between the masking panels and projection screen.

Equally important, Vision XFT is able to maintain constant image height for 2.35:1 CinemaScope, 16:9 HDTV, and 4:3 NTSC TV aspect ratios through an intelligent motor control system that has been electronically integrated into the product by Vutec engineers. This innovation ensures that the vertical masking panels will achieve the perfect aspect ratio with each viewing experience.

The XFT comes with both an intelligent motor control interface and Decora -style keypad control. At the same time, Vutec has engineered Vision XFT to use the company's IR6 infrared interface adaptor to allow users to more conveniently and inexpensively control the system via a learnable IR remote. The system is also fully compatible with control panel interfaces by AMX, Crestron, Lexicon and other manufacturers. Finally, the Vision XFT ships fully assembled for immediate installation.

"Home theater owners are now demanding their highly sophisticated projectors be matched by an equally sophisticated video projection screen that can accommodate the widest variety of viewing options -but without the costs of exorbitant add -on systems," commented Kevin Baisley, Vutec's vice president of sales and marketing. "Vutec's engineering staff has met that need with Vision XFT."

Home theater owners using Vision XFT have a wide range of screen fabrics to choose among, starting with Vutec's patented SilverStar™ and its unique gain of 6.0, 180 degree off -axis viewing, no color shift, ambient light rejection, increased contrast, and bright, vivid colors.

Other Vutec screen fabrics available for Vision XFT include BriteWhite Opaque (1.3 gain), PearlBrite (3.1 gain), GreyDove (0.95 gain), SoundScreen (0.95 gain) and Rear -Vu (2.5 gain).

"No other company is offering this all -inclusive product for the home market," stated Sinkoff. "Quite simply, Vision XFT gives people the option of creating a 'one -touch' home theater experience."
