Video processor specialist Lumagen is the latest addition to the brand portfolio of DbM (Distributed by Meridian). The company has been appointed a sub-distributor for its Radiance range of video processors.

Lumagen joins Barco Residential projection systems, Display Technologies projection screens, Complete Acoustic Treatment System (C-ATS), Meridian Audio, nexgentec, Trinnov Audio and Waterfall Audio speaker range, as a member of the DbM partner family

The Lumagen Radiance Pro range allows home cinema integrators to implement dynamic mapping on HDR content in a more effective way than is possible via an unadorned projection system.

“We aim to offer the complete solution at DbM,” said Barry Sheldrick, Director of Sales at DbM. “We had seen the challenges that dynamic tone mapping presented in our own demonstration rooms, and using content metadata was unreliable, the frame-by-frame approach utilised by Lumagen is the perfect solution. Recognising that Lumagen has been in the business for 20+ years and is a renowned specialist of video processing and video calibration, we knew that they would be the right partner for us. We saw synergy between what we want to achieve for our integrators and what Lumagen offers.”

Lumagen Radiance Pro processors use FPGA hardware processing, which can be fully programmed.

The processors have a 1U form factor and offer a full range of resolution enhancement and picture quality improvements, including aspect ratio detection and non-linear stretch. The Lumagen line also offer video switching, calibration, plus deinterlacing and scaling solutions.

Another feature valued by installers is the video delay option. This delays the video signal to the projector, enabling perfect lip-syncing; normally only the audio can be delayed in an audio processor. Small details like this really boost the immersion of a system and draw the viewer in, says the distributor.

Integrators buying the Lumagen Radiance range via DbM will have access to a full calibration service. The Lumagen team will perform a site visit to calibrate the system.

“We are delighted to partner with DbM as the company puts performance and customer service at the forefront of its business model,” said Gordon Fraser, Managing Director of Convergent AV. “The brands it represents, such as Meridian and Barco, are world renowned for producing reference quality video and audio products. Lumagen has been at the top of the game for video processing solutions for the last 20 years, with the current Radiance Pro platform going from strength to strength as we continue to develop and enhance features and video accuracy. We look forward to working with DbM and its dealer network to create the best possible cinema rooms.”
