Vidikron's VisionTM Model 100 Projector Now Features CineWideTM with
AutoScopeTM Technology

3-Chip Projector Product Now Features Motorized Video Enhancement Technology
Delivering CinemaScope 2.35:1 Films in Bright Light Environments

UNION CITY, CA - August 29, 2005 - Vidikron, the leading producer of high
definition home theater video displays, has further enhanced its flagship
projector, the VisionTM Model 100, by incorporating award-winning CineWideTM
with AutoScopeTM technology. For the first time, Vidikron combines
proprietary image processing and cinema-grade custom lens optics to show
movies filmed in the Cinemascope 2.35:1 aspect ratio with constant vertical
height. CineWideT eliminates black stripes on the top and bottom of the
screen while preserving every single line of resolution available from the
display's chips, and the motorized AutoScopeT lens assembly allows viewers
to switch to the new, extra-wide viewing mode with a single remote control
button. By combining the Model 100's LightAmpT engine with the CineWideTM
technology upgrade, users experience the sharpest high definition video
quality that can be viewed in the brightest of environments.

"We have been extremely gratified by the Model 100's early success this
year, especially as enthusiasts everywhere move away from the more
traditional dark home theater environments. The unique Vision 100 really
shines in the difficult high ambient light environments found in today's
multipurpose living rooms, family rooms, rec rooms, dens and more," said Jim
McGall, vice president of sales and marketing for Vidikron. "With the added
boost of a CineWideTM with AutoScopeT upgrade, even the biggest film buffs
around will find their home theater needs truly fulfilled-in any room of the
house."

The VisionT Model 100 is a three-chip high-light-output DLPT projector that
uses Vidikron's LightAmpT engine to create bright and detailed pictures even
in high-ambient-light situations such as family rooms and living rooms,
which often double as home theater environments. The projector produces
tremendous brightness, measured at 3500 ANSI lumens (78.5 ft-Lamberts
CSMST).

The high performance Model 100 features high-definition resolution at 1280 x
720, with a contrast ratio of 2000:1. The multi-standard projector offers a
wide variety of versatile features including extensive lens shift capability
and power zoom for total installation flexibility. The Model 100's 16:9
native aspect ratio DMDT array makes it ideal for widescreen viewing, while
its 3-chip, 1280 x 720 native resolution produces crisp, crystal clear high
definition images with richly saturated colors, deep black levels and
natural, highly refined image detail.
