Optoma Technology is now the exclusive projector manufacturer of projectors with DARBEE Visual Presence, an image processing solution for image enhancement. The HD28DSE is the first projector to feature DARBEE Visual Presence Image enhancement technology.

“Optoma strives to provide the best home entertainment experience, which has been proven by our continuously leading position as the No. 1 1080p DLP projector brand in North America, and is now further strengthened by our collaboration and exclusive partnership with DARBEEVision,” said Jon Grodem, senior director of product management at Optoma.

The integrated DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology utilizes neuro-biologic algorithms to enhance detail and depth in skin tones, textures, and reflective surfaces while noise filtering produces amazing image clarity, according to the company.

“Through extensive collaboration, we are pleased to have our proprietary DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology incorporated into Optoma’s premium home theater projector, the HD28DSE," said Larry Pace, president at DARBEEVision Inc. "DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology is important because it can correct the flatness and loss of realism of every image ever taken. DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology uses computation to process images in the same way the brain does, resulting in revolutionary and never-before-seen levels of depth, clarity, object separation, and realism for an immersive and lifelike viewing experience.”

The HD28DSE is a high-definition 1080p DLP projector with 3,000 lumens and 30,000:1 contrast ratio, with a weight of 5.7 lbs. The HD28DSE is an ideal video projector for movie watching and gaming in the home or on the road.

Two HDMI ports allow the HD28DSE to easily connect to laptops, Blu-ray DVD players, gaming consoles, and digital set top boxes. MHL connectivity on port one makes it easy to wirelessly share content from MHL devices such as Roku's Streaming Stick, tablets, and smartphones to connect directly to the projector to play music and video, view pictures, and even share webpages and other user-generated digital media content.

“We chose Optoma as our exclusive projector partner because we recognize that Optoma’s goal of advancing excellent image quality aligns perfectly with DARBEEVision’s mission," Pace said. "With Optoma’s expertise in integrating ground-breaking image enhancement features into projectors, and its reach in the HD market, we are excited that DARBEE Visual Presence image enhancement technology will be seen and appreciated by even more people worldwide.”
