Sunflex to Market First of Its Kind, Highly Immersive Video Enhancement Accessory

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - As a first step in their go to market strategy for system products, DarbeeVision, Inc., a pioneer in the field of digital image enhancement, has licensed its HDMI Smart Cable technology to Germany-based Sunflex Europe for release in Europe and Australia through Sunflex GmbH and in North America via Sunflex USA LLC. The resulting HDMI cable accessory will process the game system output in real time and add Darbee Visual Presence depth and clarity to any video game -- resulting in an unparalleled gaming experience.

Sunflex's product lines and aggressive, first to market marketing approach focus on the creation of a superior gaming experience delivering high value, cutting edge technology with innovative features -- making them a natural fit to partner with DarbeeVision. "As a new product for video gaming that is completely unique, Sunflex believes the HDMI Smart Cable will be a disruptive presence in the marketplace, and a great fit for our snakebyte video game accessories product line," noted Sunflex USA's vice president of marketing, Mitch Perliss. Sunflex will introduce the new video enhancement HDMI cable accessory to the international video gaming community at the 2011 E3 show in Los Angeles, hosting a live demonstration of Darbee Visual Presence processing for video games on the show floor in West Hall, booth #5744.

DarbeeVision's proprietary technology takes video game images to the next level of reality -- through a unique approach that delivers extremely lifelike images that pop off the screen -- all without the need for 3-D glasses. As a video processor module in a small housing and embedded in the HDMI cable, the new accessory will simply plug into the gaming console and enhance the output of any video game, as well as DVD, Blu-ray, and media players and any digital broadcast -- on both standard and high-definition TVs.
