After the movie, I mentioned to my wife that some people with projectors report no difference in picture quality when they try a Darblet. Our experience has been that the improvement we see are the same as what is shown on the DarbeeVision.com website's Gallery. As an experiment, I went to the F8500's SMARTHUB browser application and viewed the DarbeeVision Gallery directly to the F8500 without the Darblet in the video chain. The Gallery picture improvements where the same as what we see with other sources (DVD & Fios) in Darblet Demo mode.
Wonder what the DarbeeVision Gallery would look like when reprocessed with a Darblet and without. If I had the Gallery images on a USB thumb drive I could view the Gallery through my TX-NR636's USB port. The double processed Gallery's images would be interesting to compare.
It would be interesting if projector owners who see no DarbeeVision improvement would repeat my experiment with the Gallery and post their results.
Suggestion to Darbee: Provide a way to download all the DarbeeVision Gallery pictures as files to a USB thumbdrive. The Interactive Images could be shown in three versions: no enhancement, split like Demo mode, and full image Darbee processed.
Update to suggestion: These USB images could be viewed by potential buyers on their TV's and for troubleshooting when no improvement seen during installation. They would show what the TV's display is capable of rendering.
You may not realize it, but the images sitting in our 4K Gallery are downloadable.
These wonderful photos were supplied to us by our photographer/videographer friend, Ron Fabienke.
The images are processed: DVP at 0%, 30%, 50%, 70%, 100%
We specifically posted them up so that everyone could grab them and see what DARBEE Visual Presence looks like on their own 4K system, because the Darblet will not process an image larger than 2K.
Our plan is to put up more ultra-high resolution images over time.
Also, we created and launched a new processing system called DARBEE On Demand.
The processing on the back end of this cloud based, browser UI, system is Visual Presence, but for ANY resolution image: SD, HD, UHD, 4K, 6K, 8K, or larger.
This system will be gradually released for wider use, it is currently only for use by our OEM partners.
Thank you for the idea/request,
