Greeting to all from ISE 2020!
So I just finished an in depth demonstration of the MadVR Envy at ISE 2020, and yes this is indeed situated within the Alcons Pro-Ribbon booth
In short, the MadVR Envy is absolutely incredible. The demo was utterly mind-blowing. And this is despite the fact that the room was not perfectly blacked out (it's a trade show after all).
A massive congratulations and thank you to both
for all their hard work and Mathias' creative genius in developing and bringing these products to market.
The improvements that MadVR Envy makes with respect to the video performance is way, way above and beyond 'just' dynamic tone-mapping with respect to HDR.
The difference in video performance is not slight or subtle.
It's literally as if everything
is better. Furthermore, the resultant image that is produced looks practically 3D and the vanillla baseline in comparison extremely 2D. The image looks more real. The colors are better. The luminance dynamic range is very considerably increased. And this is merely the tip of the iceberg.
I have to admit that I was somewhat dubious regarding how effective the claimed artificial intelligence bright highlight and shadow detail recovery and optimisation would actuall be in reality. Furthermore, when I heard that the maximum setting is labelled 'Insane' I took this to be hyperbole... but it's not. Seriously, it really IS completely INSANE! I don't know how
has done it but I am convinced that voodoo is involved!
One particular video clip in this regard was as shocking as being hit in the face with a baseball bat. It was a shot of clouds in the sky on a bright day, wherein with the vanilla a lot of the image is blown out to white, and seriously we are talking about 1/4 of the screen here; and yet the MadVR Envy fixed the image 100% to perfection. There were literally gasps from everyone in the room, myself included.
congratulations again. You have one hell of a product here.
And I hope that I am not going to upset the apple cart by saying this, but I consider it to be important.
There has been very understandably a lot of comparison versus the Lumagen PRO and questioning regards which is better.
Well I am going to answer that question for you.
It's the MadVR Envy, pure and simple. And it's not even close. Seriously, as compared with the Lumagen PRO it's on a totally different level. Which I have to say I was somewhat expecting given the difference in raw processing power for starters, let alone
genius programming and algorithms etc.
Don't get me wrong. The MadVR Envy does not make Lumagen PRO any less or worse of a product that it is; wherein it really is a fantastic product. It's simply that the MadVR Envy is way, way, better.
Personally, I consider the pricing to be absolutely worth it and suffice to say I ordered one immediately on the spot.
I very much look forward to spending some considerable handson time with the MadVR Envy ASAP.
Hands down winner of BEST NEW PRODUCT at ISE 2020!!!
Very, very, well done!!!
