DVE Distribution, Inc. Established to Market Joe Kane Productions-Endorsed Products Worldwide


DVE Distribution, Inc. Established to Market Joe Kane Productions Endorsed Products Worldwide

The First Practical, True 1080P Reference Quality Projection Displays — the JKP-endorsed Samsung SP-A800B and SP-A900B 1080P DLP Front Projectors — are Now Available

Video Production Industry and Home Theater Aficionados Rejoice!

Atlanta, GA – September 8, 2009 – Earlier this year, DVE Distribution, Inc. was established by David and Jeffrey Goodman solely for the purpose of marketing Joe Kane Productions (JKP) endorsed video products worldwide. DVE plans to partner with manufacturers that produce digital home theater products of the highest caliber.

The company’s first products, which are available for sale now through DVE-appointed CEDIA channel dealers and integrators, are the Samsung SP-A800B and SP-A900B 1080P DLP® home theater projectors (MSRP $7,495 and $12,995 respectively) and anamorphic, short and long throw lenses. Samsung has appointed DVE as the exclusive source in the US for these two projectors.

Joe Kane is the country’s leading video display standards expert. He is also the author of Digital Video Essentials – a comprehensive home theater reference program DVD that provides valuable background information on today’s high definition systems and enables HDTV novices and aficionados alike to get the most out of HDTV displays through easy-to-follow calibration and set-up instructions.

Kane’s association with DVE is perfectly in step with his continued crusade (at both Hollywood program production and home viewing levels) to deliver the best possible progressive high definition television and film reproduction. Kane and David Goodman have a working history dating back to 1996 when Goodman’s DVD International, Inc. first began distributing JKP video programs.

Kane was involved in the development of the two Samsung projectors, working closely with Samsung to successfully adhere to exacting industry established standards of precision and image quality, delivering the best possible progressive high definition picture. “These two projectors nearly perfectly reproduce all three of the world broadcast color standards; HD, SMPTE-C and EBU – which no other video display manufacturer has been wiling to attempt at this price point,? says Kane.

DVE president Jeffrey Goodman says, “These two Samsung projectors are the first products in what promises to be a full family of superior home theater products and accessories available from DVE. Not only will the line adhere to Joe Kane’s exacting standard of precision and image quality, but he and the experts at DVE will personally train every dealer that represents the brand. JKP-endorsed product distribution will be restricted to high-end A/V dealers and installers.?

JKP Endorsed Samsung SP-A800B and SP-A900B DLP® 1080P Projectors
The JKP-endorsed Samsung SP-A800B and SP-A900B digital projectors use a single chip Texas Instruments DarkChip2 and DarkChip4 1080p optical engine respectively. Both projectors boast an image brightness of 1000 ANSI lumens; a resolution of 1920 x 1080; one of the finest lenses found on any projector; internal signal scaling; 24 frame mode and the capability to nearly perfectly reproduce all three of the world broadcast color standards; HD, SMPTE-C and EBU. The projectors also incorporate two HDMI inputs, plus the standard array of analog inputs. The SP-A900B offers a 35% increase in ANSI contrast ratio over the SP-A800B, plus the addition of internal anamorphic processing and a finely adjustable iris control. “With respect to sound emissions, both projectors are ultra quiet,? says Goodman.

Optional Lenses: Anamorphic, Long and Short Throw Lens
An anamorphic lens ($9,995 MSRP) addition, developed in close association with HI-REZ Projections, Inc., works exclusively with the Samsung SP-A900B projector. “The new lens and SP-A900B projector are a perfect solution for cinephiles who want to enjoy a super-wide 2.35:1 anamorphic movie theater-sized screen in their home,” says Goodman.

Both a short and long throw lens are available for use with the JKP-endorsed Samsung projectors. The short throw lens (MSRP $3,495) is the perfect solution for installations where the projector is replacing an installed CRT projector, or where the projector must be mounted close to the screen due to architectural restraints.

The long throw lens (MSRP $3,995) is also available, ideal for placing the projector towards the back of the installation, a common practice implemented for aesthetic cleanliness in home theater or commercial applications.

Dealer Opportunities
Beginning May of this year, Goodman and Kane have been meeting with DVE sales representatives and dealers around the country, presenting the Joe Kane message and demonstrating the projectors.

Jim Lackey, principal of Natural Sound in Framingham, MA, attended an event held in Natick, MA in August. Of the opportunity to sell the JKP-endorsed Samsung projectors, Lackey said “With the recent exit of Pioneer Elite’s KURO®, we are in need of a reference quality video display for our clients. The JKP-endorsed Samsung projectors represent just that. The added bonus is that the company’s distribution is select, which means I don’t have to worry about my competitor around the corner putting the projector in his job proposal. This will prove to be a beneficial opportunity in many ways and have placed our demo order already.?
