    We made it over to the Darbee Visual Processing booth with the Oppo BDP-103D. The 'D' of course stands for Darbee Visual Processing. It will ship for $600, a $100 premium price over Oppo's BDP-103 player. Darbee is a brand new video processing system. What you have with Darbee (and this player) is a new way of processing video. So the BDP-103D will have three chips. It has a MediaTek chipset that handles deinterlacing and upconversion as well as basic video processing. Next is the Darbee processor that takes care of luminance-based processing to add more depth.

    You also do not have to purchase a OPPO-103D to get Darbee. They make a little box that provides this same functionality from any DVD player for about $300.00

    Here's a white paper on the product http://darbeevision.com/assets/documents/DarbeeVision Whitepaper with Tech Details 20120415.pdf

    Clint mentions the external box near the end of the video. At around $300 for that box (which looks pretty cheap, IMO), even I (speaking of cheap) would consider spending the $300 more to get it wrapped into a high-quality player. :)

    Thanks for the link to that white paper.

    Didn't make it to the end of the video as the link froze on me half way through (Time Warner), interesting device. I wonder if it would make a difference say, HDMI HDTV -> HDMI Cable BOX -> HDMI AVR for HD TV ?
