DarbeeVision, a provider of digital image enhancement solutions, is planning to introduce an HDMI cable accessory that will add depth and clarity to video games, enabling ultra-immersive gaming visuals.
DarbeeVision's unique approach is designed to offer lifelike images that pop off the screen to improve customer experience. The images can be viewed without 3D glasses. The technology fits in as a video processor module in a small housing. It is embedded in the HDMI cable.
DarbeeVision technology plugs into the gaming console and will enhance the output of any video game, as well as DVD, Blu-ray, and media players and any digital broadcast -- on both standard and high-definition TVs.
“Gamers pride themselves on being up to speed on the latest and greatest. They have a rabid appetite for new products, and gaming is truly more than a hobby. It's a way of life,” said Paul Darbee, founder and CEO of DarbeeVision, in a statement.
“With that in mind, our new HDMI cable will put gamers inside the action, drawing them deeper into the game by adding depth of scene and extreme clarity and detail – objects in the game will appear to possess a strong sense of depth separation and roundness,” Darbee added.
Company officials said at the CES (News - Alert) 2011, the industry professionals well received the previews of DarbeeVision-enhanced video games. Reactions from gamers who experienced demos at the show were positive across the board.
When viewed alongside a game that had not been enhanced via DarbeeVision technology, viewers noted that the video game that was connected to a DarbeeVision HDMI smart cable appeared obviously and demonstrably sharper, offering an improved sense of depth and color saturation in comparison.
Recently, DarbeeVision announced it signed a sales representation agreement with Galaxy Far East Corporation (GFEC) that will act as the exclusive sales firm for DarbeeVision's technology suite of digital imaging solutions in Taiwan.
