FOCUS Enhancements Ships QuadScan Elite, a Line Quadrupler and Video Scaler for Home Theater, PresentationMulti-Input, Progressive Scan Output Resolution Selectable to 1365 x 1024

CAMPBELL, Calif., Mar 8, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Establishing a new
price/performance benchmark in video processing, FOCUS Enhancements, Inc.
(Nasdaq: FCSE), a global leader in video scan conversion technology for consumer
electronics and computing applications announced immediate availability of
QuadScan Elite(TM). QuadScan Elite is a line quadrupler and video scaler
designed for use with high resolution, progressive scan video projectors and
displays used in home theater or professional video presentation systems.
QuadScan Elite will be demonstrated at the National Systems Contractor
Association tradeshow (Booth No. 1530) March 8-10, in Orlando, Fla. QuadScan
Elite accepts NTSC or PAL video signals from sources such as broadcast and
satellite TV, DVD players, and PVRs and enhances images so they can be viewed on
high resolution video display systems employing CRT, LCD, DLP, JVC or D-ILA
technology. The result is a film-like quality image -- in terms of detail,
contrast, and color -- that is free of scan lines, flicker, and other
distracting artifacts.

"QuadScan Elite offers the performance and features of units that cost at least
four times its price," said Shaun McTernan, National Sales Manager of Focus'
Home Theater products. "QuadScan Elite redefines the performance standards for
scalers that sell for less than $2500."

Designed for the videophile, custom installation, and commercial video markets,
QuadScan Elite can be set up and operated using front panel controls, an
infra-red remote (supplied), or by commands via its RS232/422 port. The QuadScan
Elite interface has been reconfigured for improved ease-of-use and faster than
the earlier QuadScan products. The new model is available as a desktop unit or
in a slim rack-mount configuration.

As a video scaler, QuadScan Elite allows users to select video output
resolutions of 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, and 1365x1024, as well as line
doubling, tripling and quadrupling of video sources. Aspect ratios of 4:3, 4:3
letterbox, and 16:9 are selectable for each output resolution. It is compatible
with progressive scan monitors and projectors from all major manufacturers.

QuadScan Elite has two input channels, each available as composite (RCA or BNC),
Y/C (four-pin mini-DIN), or component (BNC). A VGA computer pass through input
is also provided. All output is directed through a 15-pin VGA-type connection.

The QuadScan Elite provides auto-save adjustments for sync configuration,
contrast, brightness, saturation, hue, component level, termination impedance,
output resolution, sizing, image positioning and justification.s

The QuadScan Elite desktop model has a suggested retail price of $2,195; the
rack-mount version suggested retail price is $2,395. Each carries a three-year
limited warranty and is shipped with an assortment of cables and adapters in
addition to a remote control and operator's manual. The desktop model includes
an outboard power supply; while the rack-mount model has an internal universal
power supply.
