DarbeeVision had several new products at CES this year. Perhaps the most anticipated was a new 4K processor, which has no model designation as yet. The demo consisted of native UHD content from a computer on a UHD flat panel with an AB swipe across the screen. It was quite difficult to see the difference between the processed and unprocessed image, even though the Darbee processor was set to 100%.

 

In this paused, close-up split screen, the Darbee-processed UHD is on the left, and the unprocessed image is on the right. I can't see any difference between them, though I could see a slight improvement in detail in other images that were impossible to capture in a photo.

 

Another, more immediate product was the DVP-5100CIE, which was first shown at CEDIA in a small box similar to the Darblet. Now, it's in a 1U case and intended for the custom-installation market. Operating at 1080p, the 5100CIE features PhaseHD technology, which pushes HDMI signals up to 50 meters over a standard cable without needing extra amplifiers, repeaters, or baluns.

 

The DVP-5100CIE fits in a single rack space.

 

Finally, Darbee introduced the Fidelio, another version of the company's Darbee Visual Presence processor. This one features a 4.5" touchscreen, and you can download apps and other features as they become available. It's a Darbee processor on steroids, with multiple ins and outs, WiFi, and Bluetooth.

 

The Fidelio is a very cool-looking unit.

Is the the processing for the DVP-5100CIE still the same as the darblet? I had read they were identical in terms of the algorithm, so no difference in PQ...just a nicer housing with some added features not related to the actual darbee technology
