The Darblet, from Darbee Visual Presence is a small plug-and-play video processor that you place between an HDMI source (such as a Blu-ray Disc player, upscaling DVD player, cable/satellite box, or home theater receiver) and your TV or video projector.
However, unlike other popular video processing devices, the Darblet does not upscale resolution, suppress background video noise or edge artifacts, and does not smooth motion response.
Instead, the Darblet adds depth information in the image using pixel level real-time contrast, brightness, and sharpness manipulation (referred to as luminous modulation). This process restores the missing natural-like "3D" information that the brain is trying to see within the 2D image. As a result, the image seems to "pops" with more texture, depth, and contrast range.
If used appropriately, the Darblet makes a great addition to the TV and home theater viewing experience. In fact, it has garnered quite a following amongst a growing number of consumers and professionals.
