Mixed news, at this point.
Good news is that the eeColor box is now out, and looks fantastic - SpectraCal has taken on the eeColor box, also, which is good news.
I have two of the eeColor boxes on their way to me now, so that I can integrate with my 3D setup.
However, the sad part is that eeColor and Darbee decided to go their separate ways - remember that Darbee processing was supposed to be part of the new eeColor box.
So the new eeColor box doesn't have the Darbee visual presence.
However, Darbee is working with another company on releasing an HDMI cable with their Visual Presence called SnakeByte MambaVision - but it's releasing in Europe, possibly US later...?
The GOOD news is that the MambaVision is fully HDMI 1.4 compliant, and will work with all HDMI 1.4 formats, including frame-packed Bluray 3D, SBS, Top-Bottom, you name it.
Gotta tell you the waiting is killing me, but I see light at the end of the tunnel... I just hope it's not a... (HONK ....WHAM!) lol
Here is a quote from Darbee, which I received today in response to my enquiry:
The product will be HDMI 1.4 compliant, meaning that the specification will be like this:
Input Connector: HDMI A Female 19-pin
Output Connector: HDMI A Female 19-pin
Signal Input: 2D, 3DTV
Signal Output: Pass-through, 3D Side-by-side, 3D Top-by-bottom,3D Frame-packing & 3D Page-flip
High Speed HDMI Specification: HDMI 1.4a 3D Compliant
Resolutions: Supports 1080p/12-bit Deep color
Supports DTV Input resolutions: of 480i/576i, 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p at 50/60 Hz
Supports DTV Output resolutions: of 480p/576p, 720p and 1080i/1080p at 24/50/60 Hz
I was hoping that Darbee would be in the eeColor box, because it would have been nice to have the color processing too, but either way, at least it looks like I can get both these dream add-ons soon.
