Vidikron announced that the D-ILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) Model 60 is shipping. The Model 60 offers high quality home theater video performance in a chassis with Italian inspired styling and a soft white finish to blend seamlessly with any decor.
The Model 60’s optical light engine design and Vidikron’s incorporation of three D-ILA chips, rather than a lower cost one-chip design, result in low noise without the flicker and the “rainbow effect” that often plague one-chip digital video display devices. Vidikron engineers also paid careful attention to accurate gray scale tracking and true 6500K color reproduction capability.
With 1000 ANSI lumens of light output (CSMS Light Output of 17.9 ft-Lamberts) and an 800:1 contrast ratio, the Model 60 offers state-of-the-art picture quality on screens as large as eight feet wide. Vidikron’s internal video processing with 3:2 film detection circuitry and the Model 60’s full HDTV compatibility (with outboard tuner/decoder or satellite receiver) make it versatile enough to handle almost every video source.
In addition, Vidikron’s multiple aspect ratio control includes its unique IntelliWide mode for viewing standard video formats in widescreen without loss of image quality. Discrete IR and RS-232 controls aid custom installation, while discrete source and aspect ratio selection accommodate any automation control system.
The Vision Model 60 retails for $12,995.
