Why words are searched for sometimes trying to describe what is going on with the processing to interested people who haven't seen it yet and likely inclined to think it would be impossible to accomplish what is being said.

Okay, had a play with the Darby. Spent many, many hours playing with it and looking at a wide range of films.
It took 5 minutes to setup. Look at the photo's. Plug it into a HDMI out on the Amp and then up to my projector. Plug in a IR input for the remote and power. Done. I have it sitting behind the rack and forgeting about it.
When first turned on it is harsh. Set on 100%. I finished setting it on 50% HD mode.
Avatar 2D straight away looked 3D. Amazing Depth without glasses. Great. I checked that subtittles had no ghosting. Nope none. Brilliant again.
Stuck in Spears and Muncil test disc. No issues all looked good. I did notice a slight crush on black level test when it was raised above 40%. Didn't really become visable in general viewing. Tested that on the Dark night. No issues, actually I was amazed how detailed faces were in dark scenes.
Stuck in something Soft "Sky Captain" wow again detail popped. No side efects. Detail on the space aircraft carrier was now noticable. Turn the Darbie off and detail disapeared. Stuck in Breathless from Godard. Things looked deeper with no side effects. Did look a Tad fake. Might just take a little tweaking.
Tested what happens when I cut the power and turn back on. Nice once the power is cut there is no HDMI conection so you know its not working. Good. Once on it defaulted to the last setting. Brilliant.
So what does it do???? Detail is more obvious. It adds Depth by providing deeper blacks to background which results in the pop. This can be done by changing Gamma. So I tested that it wasn't crushing blacks the side effect of raising Gamma. No crush excellent. So we get extra Pop without black crush.
Faces looked more natural and detailed. Hair is more detailed. Background is deeper and some effects in background look more detailed. Finally Pop. Avatar almost looked 3D in 2D. Without the pop up effect and glasses.
It is like when you watch a movie and you get those few scenes that just really shine. The whole movie now looks like it.
Its a keeper.
I would be Nutz not to have this $250 device on a $18,000 projector.
