FANTASTIC (IF IT'S TRUE)!!


"Sage's FLI9200 chipset plays a significant role in the advanced video quality of the

Marantz home entertainment projectors, which feature high-definition DLP with 1280 x

720 resolution, 16:9 panel aspect ratio and 1000:1 contrast ratio. Sage's proprietary

features such as Directional Correlational Deinterlacing (DCDi(TM)), cross color

suppression and video enhancement combine to produce natural looking high-resolution

images free of coloration or motion artifacts, a difference especially visible on large

screens. The DCDi algorithm eliminates the jagged edges seen on moving angled lines in

video images."

I wouldn't get too excited, unless value isn't important to you. Marantz charges big bucks for run-of-the-mill performance.

The Sage/Faroudja chips will be appearing in a large variety of units, including DVD players and projectors. Kenwood has a DVD player scheduled for release (I have seen it), and Infocus LP530 includes the Sage chips, and Infocus' new HT machine will have it as well.


I spoke to the Sage rep at the SID show a few weeks ago, and he said that they are being very aggressive about new contracts.


Their main competitors are the Genesis chip set and the Silicon Image set. From what I can tell, the Sage and SI sets are very similar on 3:2 inverse-telecine (for film material). Sage wins on video-based material (which requires a heuristic approach to scaling) and also has better color rendition.


In summary: this is not going to be a unique feature for Marantz or NEC, but should become fairly common within a year or so.


[Edited to say "Kenwood DVD player" not "Kenwood projector".]

rbsmith,


"Kenwood has a new projector scheduled for release (I have seen it)"


Which DLP chip? Did you see its image, or just the projector itself?


Thanks
