What is the Darblet?
Up until now people have usually had to turn OFF most "image enhancement"
features in their displays, Blu-ray players, and other devices as they destroy
The DarbeeVison Darblet is first image enhancement tool that actually gets it
right and provides an exceptional increase in depth and detail for both digital
and CRT displays. The better and more detailed your source signal is, the better
the resulting picture will be.
Completely plug and play. The Darblet installs between your source and
display. Installation takes 30 seconds. A useful "Demo" mode lets you view both
the before and after pictures side by side.
We recommend using the "Hi Def" mode with a setting of somewhere between
30-45% to start.
I'm a purist and
do not want the image altered in any way!
This was also our first reaction when we first heard about the Darblet. Another box
to muck up the picture that would probably only be purchased by the same
consumers who prefer TVs with fake oversaturated colours. No thanks.
But then some of our videophile friends and no-nonsense industry experts
we trusted (Kris Deering, Joshua Zyber, etc.) started talking about the Darblet and how
well it worked, so we started to pay attention.
Our thoughts on using the Darblet from a purist standpoint are best
summarized by quoting
"As someone whose job it is to occasionally review Blu-ray discs,
a device like the Darblet presents an interesting philosophical dilemma.
Is it fair to evaluate the video quality of a Blu-ray disc with
something like the Darblet engaged, when the very nature of the device
is seemingly to alter the video signal?
After giving this a lot of thought and using the unit extensively,
I’ve come to the determination that the Darblet doesn’t actually add
anything that isn’t inherently present in whatever video I happen to
watch. It simply helps the display to resolve the picture better. I
would equate this to upgrading the display to a better model. The
Darblet doesn’t change the picture so much as it improves the playback
of what’s there.
If I were to upgrade my projector to a newer model with improved
contrast specs and higher-quality optics that could focus the image
tighter on my screen, would I say that the new projector altered the
picture on the Blu-ray disc? Of course not. I should expect a better
projector to improve the quality of whatever I watch. From what I’ve
seen, that’s the sort of effect that the Darblet provides. I like it,
and I’ve decided to leave it on full time."

We find that that the enhancement setting is set too high in these examples but
it gives you an idea of what the Darblet does).
