Yamaha Projector Sets New Bar for Video Excellence
by Selecting Silicon Optix's HQV(TM)

Press Release  |  Sep 9, 2005
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Sept. 9, 2005 Yamaha Electronics Corporation has developed the first front projector that fully integrates the HQV(TM) processor powered by Teranex. The DPX-1300 available in October can be seen during CEDIA 2005 at Yamaha's booth (#166) and at the HQV exhibition in the Grand Hall at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Union Station. "We chose the Realta HQV device because it was clear to us that the maturing and demanding home theater marketplace was looking for better video performance, especially as screen sizes increase and so many styles of video, both standard definition and high definition, are becoming available to the consumer," said Bart Greenberg, Yamaha Electronic Corporation National Sales Manager. "And it was also clear to us that Silicon Optix/Teranex had the video processing expertise to meet this growing demand."

The Realta HQV device encompasses true 10-bit video processing, full four-field motion adaptive video de-interlacing for both SD and HD signals, temporal-recursive noise reduction, automatic multi-cadence detection, and pixel-based detail enhancement. It also utilizes the same video processing power--1 trillion operations per second--as the famous $60k Teranex Xantus box.

The DPX-1300 will have an MSRP of $12,495.95 and will be available in October.
