Lumagen Radiance 2020

The 2020 is Lumagen's most affordable video processor in the Radiance line of processors and replaces the Mini3D. It is somewhat more expensive than the Mini#D, but it also offers more functionality. In particular, it includes 4 HDMI inputs, Darbee Visual Presence™ (DVP) technology, and support for 729 color LUT calibration.

Select the 2020 when space and budget are limited. It's firmware is user-upgradable, and new firmware is released regularly.

It is designed from the ground up as an user-friendly adjunct to a quality home theater installation. It offers the following:

  • 4 HDMI inputs
  • 3D Output
  • world-class scaling and deinterlacing for standard and high definition sources
  • Darbee Visual Presence™ (DVP) technology
  • noise reduction
  • detail enhancement
  • aspect ratio control
  • the ability to save and export multiple configurations, each with its own calibration settings
  • selectable output format, including up to 1080p
  • remote control with on-screen display

With all of these features, the Radiance 2020 provides much of what you get from a high-end home theater receiver without the amplification digital sound decoding. However, what makes the 2020 truly special is the full set of video calibration controls it also offers. These include

  • Comprehensive set of video test patterns all automatically controlled by ChromaPure—just click measure in ChromaPure and the 2020 will automatically provide the necessary test pattern.
  • Grayscale/gamma adjustmentin 5% and 10% increments
  • Full 3D color management, offering adjustments to the brightness, hue, and saturation of all of the primary and secondary colors.
  • Use the 2020 as the center of a total auto-calibration solution.

So how is the 2020 different from the DVDO Duo? Well, in many ways not very different at all. They both provide world-class video processing and calibration controls. There are three main differences.

  • The 2020 is considerably more powerful. It offers more test patterns and can output true 3D signals, so it is ideal for calibrating displays in 3D mode.
  • It provides a true 3D 125/729-point color calibration tool tightly integrated into ChromaPure's Advanced Auto-calibrate technology. This allows you to calibrate throughout the color space, rather than simply on the gamut border.

 

Summary

The Lumagen video processors provide world-class video processing, test pattern generation, and comprehensive calibration controls.
