Upgrade your Electrohome Marquee CRT projector by adding two HDMI 1.3 inputs with gamma correction and infrared remote control. Don't be stuck watching PS3, Blu-ray, HD-DVD, and DVD at only 480p. Add digital HDCP-compliant HDMI 1.3 inputs allowing you to watch hi-def content at up to 1080p resolution.

Widescreen 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 watch.

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% HDMI 1.3 compliant inputs for Deep Colour support, better discrete 14bit D/A converters, faster 1GHz output buffer, and better op-amps for the best image quality possible.

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.

What's new in Version 3?

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 will work.

  • 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.

Reviews/Testimonials

"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 calibrator (www.cir-engineering.com)

"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." - Napos

"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)
