Lumagen® announces the first Radiance Video Processor with Integrated Darbee Visual Presence Technology

Beaverton Oregon, March 4, 2013 – Today, Lumagen® announced the availability of the first Radiance™ video processor with integrated Darbee Visual Presence™ (DVP™) technology. The Radiance 2021™ includes all the video calibration and setup features of the award winning Radiance product line, with the addition of DVP™ technology.

Lumagen’s president Jim Peterson stated, "Darbee Visual Presence is a great fit for our video processor product line, which includes the CEA™ 2010 Platinum award winner for Video Product of the Year, the RadianceXE™. We are always working to improve the video quality available to our customers and see Darbee as a great way to add value to our products."

Larry Pace, DarbeeVision’s President, stated "Lumagen’s award winning products have consistently earned a reputation for enabling a superior video entertainment experience. Their very popular Radiance video processor line delivers cutting edge technologies, making them a natural fit to partner with DarbeeVision. DarbeeVision's proprietary technology takes video images to the next level of reality for the home theater. Darbee uses a unique and patented approach to deliver extremely lifelike images that make the original image seem dull and flat by comparison, and so is a fitting addition to the Lumagen Radiance product line."

The Radiance 2021 supports four HDMI inputs, plus two HDMI outputs and a COAX audio output, in a 17 inch "1U" rack mountable case. Similar in input and output capability to the RadianceXS-3D, the Radiance 2021, by eliminating analog video inputs, is a nod to the all-digital theater that is becoming common in the industry. It supports input and output rates of up to 1080p60. The Radiance 2021 includes all the calibration, setup and processing features of the industry leading RadianceXS-3D video processor, such as 125-point linear-Gamma RGB color palette CMS, 21-point parametric gray-scale and Gamma, a host of setup features, Lumagen’s industry leading No-Ring™ scaling technology, and support for 3D scaling and conversion between 3D formats for displays and projectors that do not support all the common 3D formats. The Radiance 2021 has a USA suggested retail price of $2795.

The Radiance Altera® Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based architecture has maintained its industry leading position due to its ability to add new architectural features in the field, long after purchase, by updating the FPGA program. The Altera Cyclone II™ FPGA allowed Radiance products to introduce frequent software updates that have included a number of hardware algorithm improvements. Among these are 3D scaling and calibration, and the new 125-point Linear-Gamma RGB CMS. The Radiance 2021 is the next step forward in this architecture. By using the Altera Stratix III™ technology to increase both performance and available FPGA resources Lumagen was able to add the DVP™ technology to the Radiance 2021, while maintaining all current RadianceXS-3D video processing features.

RadianceMini 3D joins the award winning Lumagen® Radiance video processor family.

January 6, 2011 — Lumagen®, Inc., a specialist in the design and manufacture of video products for the home and corporate markets, is announcing the RadianceMini 3D.  The RadianceMini 3D joins other members of the Radiance family, which includes the CEA® 2010 Platinum Video Product of the Year, the RadianceXE.

The RadianceMini 3D sports two HDMI® inputs, and one HDMI output, and can be controlled by either the included IR remote, or by RS-232. Control and setup are the same as other units in the Radiance family. In addition, it provides the same exceptional video quality that the Radiance line has become known for. The unit’s case measures in at a diminutive 8.5” by 5” by 1.05” (216mm by 127mm by 27mm) and has mounting tabs so it can be fastened to a shelf, or to the wall behind a flat-panel display.

HDMI 1.4 3D is supported, including scaling and aspect ratio control for 3D Bluray movies for use with an anamorphic lens, such as those produced by Panamorph®. For dual-projector 3D, two units can be used with each receiving 3D and outputting video for either the left-eye or right-eye.

Jim Peterson, Lumagen’s president, stated, “Our customers have been asking us for a new Radiance product optimized for small systems. The RadianceMini 3D fulfills this request, as well as the need for premier video processing when another product, such as an AVR, or HDMI matrix-switch, is being used for source selection.”

As with the other members of the Radiance line, proprietary No-ring™ scaling, linear-Gamma RGB-color-palette CMS, 21-point parametric grayscale calibration, video deinterlacing, MPEG artifact reduction, temporal noise reduction, and other features, combine to provide the best video quality available.

Lumagen Announces HDMI to CAT-6 Extender 

June 30, 2010--- Lumagen, Inc. a leader in video processor technology is announcing a new line of HDMI extender products. The first products in the series are a HDMI to CAT-6 extender, and a HDMI to HDMI repeater.

 Jim Peterson, Lumagen’s President, stated “We decided to add HDMI extender products to our portfolio because we had so many calls from our dealers about the failure of competitive HDMI extender products to work reliably. Our HDMI extender products are designed to be the most robust, and reliable, in the industry. Our HDMI extenders are already proving themselves by solving HDMI transmission issues in systems where other well regarded competitive products have failed.”

 The HDMI-CAT6 extender provides buffering not only for the video signals but also the DDC control signals, allowing reliable transmission distances at 1080p60 of over 50 meters total distance from source to destination. Many competitive products buffer video in the receiver only, and have no buffering at all for the DDC signals used for the HDCP/EDID interface. Lumagen estimates that about 1/3 of the support calls it receives concerning the failure of competitive HDMI extenders relate to the failure of the HDCP/EDID signals. To overcome this limitation Lumagen buffers both the video and control signals in both the transmitter and receiver boxes. This means the HDMI input cable to the transmitter box is isolated and buffered from the CAT cable between the transmitter and receiver which in turn is isolated and buffered from the receivers output HDMI cable. This design increases the maximum reliable transmission distance from the source to the destination device. Lumagen has demonstrated reliable operation in the lab with 30 meters of HDMI 1.3 cable from the source to the HDMI-CAT6 transmitter, plus 30 meters of CAT6 cable from the transmitter to the receiver, plus a 2-meter HDMI cable from the receiver to the display, at 1080p60.

 The HDMI-HDMI repeater can recover and buffer HDMI signals using 30 meters of 22 AWG HDMI cable. Like the Lumagen HDMI-CAT6 product, the HDMI-HDMI repeater buffers both video and control signals, maximizing reliable cable length.

 The HDMI-CAT6 is in production and available immediately. The HDMI-HDMI is slated for July production.

 About Lumagen: Founded in 2001, Lumagen has been bringing significant new technology to the video processing and distribution market since 2003. Lumagen has taken this strong position in the video processing market using its proprietary software and hardware algorithms to provide the best quality, setup features, and calibration in the industry.
