LAS VEGAS – DarbeeVision (LVH suite 1965) is revealing here its consumer-priced video clarity and depth enhancement device called Cobalt.
While DarbeeVision’s original product, the Darblet, is optimized for high-end home theater video enthusiasts, the Cobalt has been designed to add Darbee Visual Presence depth and clarity to HDMI video for a $269 suggested retail price.
DarbeeVision’s technology uses a patented video processing module in a small mini-box placed in-line at the output of an HDMI video source, such as a video game console, DVD or Blu-ray player, media player, or any digital broadcast.
The device is said to deliver to the picture a greater sense of realism on both standard and high-definition TVs, computer monitors, and projection systems.
The Cobalt is about the size of an iPhone, and uses HDMI 1.3 connectivity; standard 24 bit, 4:2:2 color video; three viewing modes (HD, Gaming, Full Pop); physical buttons, remote control, on screen menu/display and a Cobalt blue case.
“For consumers and video game players looking for the ultimate visual experience on their televisions, the Cobalt provides a new opportunity for everyone in the world to appreciate this must-have technology,” said Paul Darbee, DarbeeVision founder and CEO. “As with the Darblet, TV viewers and gamers using the Cobalt will notice that objects appear to possess a strong sense of depth separation and roundness. Not only do these qualities make video more gratifying to watch, they actually help gamers to win because you can see more in the game.”
DarbeeVision said it will distribute the product via both e-commerce and tradition retail stores starting this month.
