It seemed like a good idea to me as it's a good fit for what the Darbee does and what kind of signal it wants to receive. But, I'll have to trust your doubts. I'm more and more discouraged about this product. It seems like the only inspiration behind it, the only thing that's well established, is to sell a product for $2000. There doesn't seem to be many ideas (in other words, not much demand) for what it could do to justify the price. Obviously, a more sophisticated version of the Darbee algorithm would be nice. But, it's hard to believe that such a thing requires $2000 worth of processing to achieve, and the fact that Darbee wants the product to do a whole lot more corroborates such suspicions. My suggestion to implement the original Darbee technology to downscale stereoscopic 3D images to 2D with accurate enhanced depth would be nice to see, but I doubt it would need anywhere near $2000 in hardware to do it, nor do I think very many would find the improvement worth the cost.
In fairness, maybe there's few enough high end buyers out there that Darbee can make a profit off of the Fidelio no matter what it becomes (but as you say, most companies that offered such products are out of business). If Darbeevision can do so, more power to them, as I think they deserve success. Or perhaps there's value enough in the appearance of having a presence in the high end market. If so, more power to them. But on the merits of this product in isolation, I'm still puzzled by it's existence and disappointed about the lack of concrete ideas.
