Vidikron has released the Vision Model 100, which boasts clear images in the brightest rooms of the home, where quality projection images have until now been very difficult to achieve. The Model 100 is engineered for optimal performance in rooms where most families like to watch movies: the family room, great room, and living room. With its LightAmp engine, the Model 100 can produce brightness in those aforementioned rooms with high ambient light levels.
Vidikron incorporated today’s advanced 3-chip, high-definition DLP technology with the proprietary LightAmp engine to achieve a blend of high quality image reproduction with high light output. The Model 100 creates 3500 ANSI Lumens of light output (CSMS Light Output: 78.5 ft-Lamberts) yet maintains a contrast ratio of 2000:1.
The Model 100’s 16:9 native aspect ratio DMD array makes it optimal for widescreen viewing, while its 3-chip, 1280 x 720 native resolution produces crisp, clear high definition images with saturated colors, deep black levels and natural, highly refined detail, according to Vidikron. Six different lens options with extended lens shift capabilities further enhance the unit’s flexibility, providing the custom specialist a wide range of unit positioning choices in difficult-to-install rooms.
Vidikron’s all-digital Imagix video processing is integrated into the projector chassis for advanced video scaling and image quality. This design provides straight line digital connections from source to light engine.
The multiple aspect ratio control includes Vidikron’s own IntelliWide mode for viewing standard video formats in widescreen with minimal loss of image quality. Discrete IR and RS-232 control make installation easy, while discrete source and aspect ratio selection accommodate many automation control systems.
The Vision Model 100 retails for $29,995.
