Imaging Technologies made headlines at CES with their latest CRT-based
projection system that uses technology that keeps the video signal
completely in the digital domain from DVD to the projector. The Digital
Pathway concept avoids the constant up and down, analog to digital to
analog, conversions at every stage of the video chain, which can
degrade the overall picture quality. This Digital Pathway concept makes
it possible for an entry-level 8-inch CRT projector to surpass the
picture quality often associated with 9-inch models using very
expensive outboard processors.
Using their $37,000
system, which consists of an 8-inch CRT projector with their new
internal scaler card (no outboard video processor AKA: “a line
doubler”), an exclusive DVD player with a pure digital output, Accurate
Imaging’s off-site exhibit had critics talking.
