Integra and Faroudja have teamed up to create an "HDTV-ready" video projection system that produces a clear and bright high-definition image of up to 100 inches (measured diagonally). The Integra DLV-100FP1 video projection system allows consumers to enjoy the movie-theater experience at home, with the action projected on a large movie screen instead of coming out of a box. This system consists of the compact Integra DLV-100 Digital Light Processing (DLP) Video Projector, and the FPV-1 Digital Video Processor, which was co-developed and co-branded with Faroudja Laboratories.
The tiny Integra DLV-100 DLP projector, which measures just 9-1/2-inches wide, 7-3/4-inches deep, and 2 inches tall, is easily mounted on a table or a rear wall, or turned upside-down and hung from the ceiling. Because it uses a single DLP chip, it requires no complex color and image alignments, making it easy to install and setup.
The Integra DLV-100 has an XGA native resolution of 1024x768, so it is HDTV ready. It produces 1000 ANSI Lumens in Normal mode, and 750-800 ANSI when operating in Long Life mode, which extends bulb life and provides even quieter fan operation. The Integra DLV-100 accepts composite, S-Video, and RGB inputs. A PC control port provides an interface with AMX, Crestron, and other home automation systems, and allows for computer interactivity. A USB port provides direct connection of a mouse for use with on-screen menus. Other popular features include Digital Zoom, a built-in slot for a Compact Flash card, and a presentation viewer for creating "slide shows" with images from a digital camera.
The Integra/Faroudja FPV-1 Digital Processor converts an interlaced signal into an unadulterated, high frequency 768p progressive signal that is a pixel-to-pixel match with the DLV-100. Faroudja’s patented Diagonal Correlation Deinterlacing prevents jagged-edged motion artifacts. Edit-detection circuitry with 3:2 pull-down provides the smoothest possible images from film-based video sources. Faroudja’s patented Cross-Color suppression and 10-bit adaptive digital comb filtering enhance color purity and image detail. The FPV-1 features inputs for HD/computer, component video, S-video, and composite, and an RGB video output. It has front-panel controls for brightness, color, contrast, tint, and aspect ratio, plus four presets. An RS232 control port allows the processor to work with AMX, Crestron, and other home automation systems.
The DLV-100FP1 system is now available with a suggested retail price of $10,500 for the system. The DLV-100 DLP Video Projector can be purchased separately with a suggested retail price of $7,000
