The Darblet in Australia
Decibel Hi Fi in Brisbane has been chosen as a reseller of the Darblet DVP 5000 video enhancer. Simple to use, this US-developed device accepts any HDMI input signal up to full HD, including 3D, and improves the detail and sense of depth in the image, before passing it on to a display.
Every TV has a picture 'enhancement' or 'sharpening' capability, but these usually do more harm than good, introducing distortion to the picture. Darbee Vision, the developers of the Darblet, created a system which works on completely different principles. The Darblet identifies foreground picture objects and enhances their contrast and detail without producing halos or other artefacts around the objects. Aside from increasing the perceived detail, this process tends to add a sense of depth to the image.
Extremely well reviewed across the home theatre press, the video processing used in the Darblet has been incorporated in two high-end Blu-ray players from US maker Oppo Digital.
The Darblet is a compact device, just 100mm long by 50mm wide and 19mm deep, it's easy to use, with two HDMI connections and power from the included adapter. A demo mode helps the user select the best settings.
The Darblet is available for $396, including delivery, by direct order from Decibel. There is a 14 day money back guarantee. It will also be showing at the Australian Audio & AV Show, running from 17 to 19 October 2014 at the InterContinental Melbourne Rialto Hotel.
