Review Magazine uses Moome HDMI cards in their reference theaters featuring Sony
G90 and Runco 1200 CRT projectors. "We love our 9-inch CRT projectors,
even though we have our pick of the leading edge D-ILA, SXRD, and DLP
projectors." - Gary Reber, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher, Widescreen Review
The VIM-FULLHD card allows you easily connect digital devices such as
Blu-Ray players, PS3/PS4, Xbox360/XboxOne, Satellite/Cable HDTV set-top boxes, and HTPCs
with HDMI graphic cards (to name a few) to your Marquee CRT projector. Simply
plug the card into your projector, your DVI/HDMI devices into the card, and
This product is a culmination of everything Moome has learnt
over years of building DVI/HDMI input cards for CRT projectors. It is by far the
highest end Marquee card he has yet to offer with new features such as: Two 100%
1.3 compliant inputs for Deep Colour support, better discrete 14bit D/A converters,
output buffer, and better op-amps for the best image
Supply is limited and tends to sell out fast as this high-end
product for the discriminating videophile is only built in small batches. This
is the last HDMI input card you will ever buy for your Marquee CRT projector.

VIM-FULLHD v3 owners manual
What's new in
The new version 3 board adds the following new features:
Marquee switcher support: You can now use the card in
a Marquee switch box instead of directly in the projector. Older cards did
not work in Marquee switchers. Please refer to the manual for the special
DIP switch settings.
DTS-HD / Dolby True HD lossless audio support: Allows
you to use an HDMI receiver or pre-amp between your Blu-ray player and
projector to decode lossless audio. Previously this did not work correctly
due to the HDMI card's EDID. The EDID has now been updated so this
Cleaner video power: A large coil filter has been
added to clean up the video power, further reducing image noise.
Manual selection of input color mode: The previous card
auto-detected the colour space. While this typically works correctly, some
users like to be able to force the colour space mode. This is now possible using 4 new buttons on the remote:
Button 4: Auto Detect Input Colour Space
Button 5: Set Input Color Space at YCbCr 422
Button 6: Set Input Color Space at YCbCr 444
Button 7: Set Input Color Space at RGB 444
Remote control beep confirmation: In the past it was difficult to know if the card is receiving the signals when you press
buttons on the remote. The card now 'beeps' every time you press a button to
give you positive feedback.

What's new in HDMI 1.3?
The HDMI 1.3 specification was released in June 2006 and
includes the following new features:
Bandwidth more than doubled from 165Mhz (4.95 Gbit/s) to
340Mhz (10.2 Gbit/s) to support high resolution, faster refresh, and deep
Extended colour gamut for more natural and realistic
colours: Deep Color with 30-bit, 36-bit, and 48-bit xvYCC, sRGB, or YCbCr
compared to 24-bit sRGB or YCbCr in previous HDMI versions.
Support for lossless digital audio such as Dolby TrueHD and
DTS-HD Master Audio (not relevant on this device).
Automatic audio syncing (lip-syncing) timing compensation
(not relevant on this device).
"Moome's original design squashed (attenuated) 65% of
the full bandwidth when running 1080p 60Hz. With Mike's new circuit, the FULLHD
v2 now can resolve the entire 1080p 60Hz signal. With Moome's new design his
card is the first and only option that can do full 1080p and YCbCr... the image
is amazing!" - Craig Rounds, official FULLHD v2 tester, professional
"Well the VIM module is installed in my Marquee 8500 and I
love it! Moome did nice job with it. As others had stated, it's worth the
wait." - Robert M.
"... sharper that the old Moome Marquee HDMI card."
"Recently I bought a new Moome HDMI 1.3 input card for my Marquee, to be
installed when I rebuilt and refurbished my 9500LC. I'm no stranger to Moome
products. I've been using a Moome DVI input card on this Marquee for quite some
time... Well, I'm really impressed! I've got my brightness set low enough
that when the picture goes to mute, you don't even really see ANY light on the
screen. Black is REALLY black. I'm seeing more detail in the dark images than
I've EVER seen before out of ANY display system. I can freeze frame a dark
scene, crank up the brightness to see what details I'm missing, and discover
that there AREN'T any. Even uncalibrated, I'm seeing incredible detail in
dark scenes while keeping a really solid black level. I am very impressed
and have nothing but good things to say about this card's performance,
though as of yet I have not explored any of this card's extra functionality."
- CJ (CMJohnson)
