DarbeeVision Readies Video Processing HDMI Cable


DarbeeVision will begin shipping an
HDMI cable accessory with an embedded video processor
module that it says will add more immersive visuals to
any video game or digital video content.

DarbeeVision’s video processor module, in a small housing
embedded in the HDMI cable, plugs into a gaming
console and enhances the output of any video game, as
well as any digital video including DVD, Blu-ray Disc and
media player content on both standard and high-definition
TVs, the company said.

DarbeeVision said its proprietary technology was developed
taking into account what the human visual system does
when images are viewed by the eyes and processed by the
human brain. The original image’s depth and clarity are enhanced
by the cable’s processor, resulting in what DarbeeVision
called “an extraordinary sense of realism and depth.”

“Gamers pride themselves on being up to speed on the
latest and greatest — they have a rabid appetite for new
products, and gaming is truly more than a hobby — it’s a
way of life,” said Paul Darbee, DarbeeVision’s founder/
CEO. “With that in mind, our new HDMI cable will put gamers
inside the action, drawing them deeper into the game
by adding depth of scene and extreme clarity and detail —
objects in the game will appear to possess a strong sense
of depth separation and roundness.”

The company said previews of DarbeeVision-enhanced
video games were very well received at International CES
in January. DarbeeVision is now offering its HDMI smart
cable technology to gaming accessory OEMs.

DarbeeVision also offers a technology suite for OEMs
including a Darbee software application for still image processing;
Darbee GPU software running on a CUDA-enabled
NVIDIA GPU for real-time digital video processing;
Darbee Box, a CE accessory device based upon FPGA
architecture for real-time digital video processing; the Darbee
IP Block, a hardware IP block for licensing to be used
in embedded applications.
