The ace up this machine’s sleeve is its Darbee image processing. Nothing to do with horse racing or contests between teams that happen to be cartographically close, this is instead a clever piece of imaging wizardry that amplifies textures and details to an inconceivable extent. Projected images take on near physical presence, skin pores are displayed with medical detail and hair looks so palpable one feels almost able to pluck it. It’s the next best thing to going to the cinema itself, and its long lamp life of up to 8,000 hours means you won’t have to pay the ticket price for a replacement for years.
Verdict: A box-office smash.
