In Memory of Paul Darbee

2/3/1947 - 9/23/2013

Paul Darbee, founder and CEO of DarbeeVision, passed away on Monday, September 23rd, in Santa Ana, California. He was 66.

A truly visionary inventor and entrepreneur with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Paul’s passion for all things combined with his engineering prowess allowed him to create some truly remarkable, one-of-a-kind technologies. The concept of taking something from the glimmer of an idea to a global phenomenon appealed greatly to Paul, and he made pursuing this his life’s work. From the universal remote control to the revolutionary image processing capabilities of DVP, Paul used his love of physics and math to create ways to enhance lives through technology.

For all of those lucky enough to spend time with Paul, one thing was quickly evident – he had a sheer exuberance that could not be denied. From a well-timed, self-effacing quip to a thorough explanation of neurophysiology and brain theory, Paul‘s curiosity about how the world works and his outright enthusiasm for all things cerebral were contagious. People would come away from conversations with him feeling just a bit smarter than before. He had a keen sense of humor and inexorable wit, and he had a smile that lit up the room.

In addition to founding DarbeeVision, Paul held several U.S. patents in the fields of digital imaging, home automation, and consumer electronics . He guest lectured at Chapman University and mentored at their eVillage. He served on several panels, including CES and NCTA. As a member of Tech Coast Angels, he gave talks about patents and advised upcoming entrepreneurs. He was also a baseball aficionado who could be found umpiring youth games, with his characteristic enthusiasm, in his spare time.

Speaking of the technology he invented – in his own words – “It produces a stunning effect and I thought it would be a wonderful thing to somehow bring to the world.” His family and company are deeply saddened by his passing, yet are determined to continue on with Paul’s life work to achieve his ultimate dream: having his technology inventions in the homes of people all over the globe. He will live on in the hearts on all who knew him, and through the legacy of his inventions.

So young to leave us just when his invention was breaking.Anyone know how he died?
post #6963 of 7863
It makes me sad to hear of his passing. Hopefully the praise this thread has had for his invention brought him joy.

Larry is the interviewee in the video interview conducted by Scott W. I was fortunate to spend most of last Cedia with Paul and him helping to man their booth. I met Paul and Larry years ago at their Cedia quiet back room display in Atlanta I believe. I only knew Paul from our time at those two shows (Atlanta and last year). I have had extensive dealings with Larry. He is a good man and the right business person to lead the company. Paul's son I believe remains with the company. A fine young man who has my deepest condolences.

You connect your darbee between your receiver output and the projector and your are good to go.....!

so just to clarify. the 5100 will only be a change in hdmi connector placement? No tech advancements? or remote control color change? smile.gif

I have a Sharp 80" 844u and always wondered if this little gem would help the overall "POP" on my setup?

A few second with Google found this:

There are two stories here now

5100 is 5000 with different HDMI I/O slots

5100 is 5000 with upgraded algorithm

Which is it? I'm willing to update all of my 5000 if it is the latter.

It doesn't have to be an either/or. It may be both.
post #6972 of 7863
As long as the upgrade includes visibly better algorithm, I'm upgrading every single Darblets in my house.

The 5100 will have the HDMI I/O connectors on the back side of the unit.
The 5100 will have a sleek and thinner case, with a black glossy finish.
The 5100 will have 5 colored LEDs on the front.
The 5100 will not have an upgraded algorithm.
The 5100 will function the same as the Darblet.

The 5100 will have a sleek and thinner case, with a black glossy finish.
The 5100 will have 5 purple LEDs on the front.
The 5100 will not have an upgraded algorithm.
The 5100 will first be released in limited quantity, as The Darblet Special Edition, Paul Darbee Signature Model.
Then, the 5100 (non-signature model) will then be available as the new Darblet.

So functionally, there seems to be no difference between the 5000 and 5100, Signature Model or not?
post #6975 of 7863

sorry if the question is answered somewhere in the 233 pages of this thread, but the search on this site has timed out.

 

Anyone have a Darblet where the remote does not work? I go my unit today, hooked it up, removed the plastic tab from the battery, checked the polarity, the remote does not work. The buttons on the unit work, the battery has 3.26V, and pointing the remote at my camera I can see a blue light from the emitter when a button is pressed. The unit will not respond to the remote.

 

Any ideas before I send it back?

thanks

Yes, sort of a common problem, meaning it has been discussed before. I had one where the remote didn't work. Sent it back and reordered.

On one of my 2 Darbees, the remote does not always work and I have to move it closer until it gets it and then it's fine.
post #6977 of 7863
I just use the buttons on the unit itself.
post #6978 of 7863

Has anyone noticed when all equipment (tv, avr etc) is off, the Darblet blue LED is flashing rapidly? Is this normal?

 

thanks

Mine did the same thing and I got my last week. Went down to Radio Shack and got a new battery. That solved the problem.

Wasn't that the concept piece shown at the 2012 Cedia? Two Darblets in a box with a fancy read out. Could be produced to do a variety of useful functions but not brought to market.

Larry. We want a 4K Darbee. Build it and we will come. Price is not really a consideration. I know licensees have a 2K Darbee built inside their product but given the size and cost of the necessary field gate array for 4K, how likely will it be that they will include 4K Darbee processing. Remember your core and early adopter customers. We are now buying 4K panels and projectors and we need a 4K Darbee. The Darbeevision website has a tease and we don't like to be teased. We want a stand alone 4K Darbee now. Strike that. We want it yesterday.

+ a gazillion....

Thanks Darbeevision & Paul Darbee for making EVERYTHING look great with my home theater system - - from Satellite TV to Bluray on both my BenQ W1080 projector (100% must have for a projector, no brainer) as well as my Samsung 65" LCD/LED.

Your contribution towards helping video and HT enthusiasts enjoy and get the most out of their equipment can be measured in the number of smiles generated each and every viewing day & night across our globe.

Hi All. I apologize, but I simply cannot read 233 pages of this thread, and I did a search through the thread but am not sure I have a good answer. Perhaps this should be in the OP for new owners? In any case my question is what are the recommended settings for this? Does it vary by display device? I have an Epson Pro Cinema 6020UB projector and a Onkyo receiver (currently an 809, but will likely have a 929 soon) and have placed the Darblet in between. I have it set at Hi-Def and 50% for now. I have yet to give it a huge amount of time, but I am not sure I am seeing quite as dramatic an effect as I would have thought.

You haven't found a "good answer" because the best answer is "whatever looks best to you". I'm not trying to be difficult. That's really the answer. There are just too many variables of display, signal, source, environment and personal preference. And, the effect isn't dramatic. You can find some descriptions of the effect fairly recently in this thread. I don't have time to repeat it. I'm cooking dinner! smile.gif
