Darbee Fidelio Demoed at CEDIA - Page 3

post #61 of 71
I think the order the boxes are in would be relevant to how each is set. I would think great amount of Darbeevision processing should be done in the first box (set at say full pop at 80 but I really don't know having just at present a single Darblet, and the less aggresive in the second, say HD at 20. The second box would become in essence a noise filter.

Hopefully the Fidelio will allowe a pass through of the new 300mhz hdmi chips for 1080p60 3d frame packing. It should allow all features/processing at 4k and hopefully be upgragable to 4k 48 or 60. At this high of a price point it needs to be fairly future proof. Most of the new high end processors will either not be ugradable or will take years to be upgraded to 60 frame packing or 4k 48/60. Future upgradabIlity with upgrades done so in reasonable time frames will be a big plus. With these features and state of the art switching it will be a very functional piece. I would then take the plunge.

Yes, please!

I would be interested in this unit if in addition to the Darbee processing it included sophisticated and adjustable block, mosquito, and temporal noise reduction algorithms, wherein different noise reduction settings can be associated with different input signal formats.

For example, for a 1080p signal from a Blu-ray the unit would use one set of filter settings (e.g., no or minimal filtering). If the input signal switches to 480i/p, such as from an SD source, it could automatically switch to a second set of user-configured filter settings (e.g., more aggressive filtering).

Put the current product with the same functionality in a metal, more attractive case, move the inputs and outputs to the rear, improve the Mickey Mouse power supply connector and provide the ability to upgrade firmware via the internet, price it at $500 to $700 and I'm all over it. I have an external VP so I need no other functionality.

They will lost a huge potential customer bass at $2000, but I most certainly could be wrong in that regard (it would not be the first time). I sure as heck would not purchase one at that price.

Add to your nicely-stated list the ability to store and recall several different pre-sets, and I am sold as well....

They are listed as an exhibitor on the CES 2013 website.

Nice. With Intel, Dolby, Yamaha, Denon being a no-show, I don't know what's left that are still exciting to be seen (other than Sony and Panasonic)

Everyone please check out indiegogo and make a pledge so Darbee can meet their goal and bring this product to fruition. eek.gif

Mr. Hatcher. You seem to have completely missed the point of what I would judge of the almost complete failure of Darbeevision's funding campaign. The stated by Darbeevision purpose of the funding campaign is to develop security and medical imaging products and has nothing to do with bringing the coming new HT processor to market. Looking at the funding raised, a few new dealer packages were sold and 43 Darblets were sold by knocking off $29 from the street price. This same price was offered by dealers over the black cyber weekend. From their website, exactly 0 have ponied up the $499 advance payment for the new product, perhaps because delivery is 6 months away and the street price could be close to that.

Darbeevision is no longer a start up company. If it needs funds the place to seek them is not the HT market where consumers will act to save $30 bucks. After the cost of goods, how much of the approximately $23,000 raised would be left for bringing the security and medical imaging products to market? Darbeevision will have to use traditional funding approaches (venture capitalist, going public, penny stocks, etc) which will cost them some piece of their company.

I m a fan and supporter of the company, but I don't get or support its fund raising approach.

I do not see any effort by Darbee to make Darbee performance improvements for the HT market and no attempt at a 4K Darbee product.Ppenetration of the HT market by or through other vendors has been minimal though the Oppo product has potential for selling substantial numbers. if darbee didn't bring out the Darblet itself, the company would have been gone by now. I do not think a better box and the other non Darbee performance improvements will be enough to sustain the company. If it is to survive they must make Darbee performance improvements and not just fix deficiencies in the old product by raisding the cost. Darbee needs a new HT product. Rather than do that, it is clear that Darbee will chase the security and medical imaging market. That's where I thing darbee perceives its opportunity for substantial profit.. darbee somehow needs to penetrate the game market. The Darblet can really improve the PQ of a video game. Of course the add on would have to be cheap.
