Lumagen specializes in manufacturing video processing products for high-end home theater setups. It was founded in September 2001 in Beaverton, USA. The Lumagen Video Processors offer multiple inputs and outputs, plus many processing setup and calibration features. More than just an HDMI switcher, the Lumagen video processors have many features to improve your screen’s image, which helps create luxury High-end home theater setups.

Lumagen’s video processors are designed to work with video sources like Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, media players, and streaming devices. They are primarily used to improve video quality, upscale lower-resolution content to higher resolutions, and perform advanced video calibration and image adjustments.

Lumagen Radiance Pro Series Video Processor

The Radiance Pro video processor series supports 4k60 inputs and outputs, including HDCP 2.2, HDR, and HLG. Optimizing HDR content is the most crucial video processing feature. The Radiance Pro Dynamic Tone Mapping (DTM) analyzes every frame of content, detects scene changes, and optimizes the “transfer function” for each content frame.

Scaling quality again comes to the forefront with the advent of 4k projectors and televisions. Lumagen’s NoRing scaling provides the best quality scaling for 1080p, 720, and SD sources for 4k projectors and TVs. Scaling is also essential for aspect-ratio control, especially when using an anamorphic lens. The Radiance Pro has a new “sharpness’ ‘feature that helps restore some detail lost in compression used to transmit content.

Fast switching is an essential part of any good home theater, and the Radiance Pro can significantly reduce the long switching times that occur when using an AVR or audio processor for switching. The Radiance Pro can be programmed to reduce switching times significantly. The Lumagen Radiance Pro can split the video and audio, so a 1080p AVR or audio processor can be used with 4k HDCP 2.2 sources.

Essential features include anamorphic screen support for HD and 4k UHD sources, with or without an anamorphic lens. Image-based auto-aspect selection and precise geometry adjustments, including size and masking, are available. The Lumagen Radiance Pro’s Non-Linear-Stretch (NLS) feature allows users to stretch 16:9 content to fill an anamorphic screen. For 16:9 screens and TVs, an anamorphic image can be placed anywhere in the active screen area, or some zoom and crop can be applied to fill a more significant portion of the screen. Multiple output configuration memories allow for features like day/night and black-and-white color temperature differences. Dual-port I/O cards can be upgraded from 9 GHz to 18 GHz in the field. The Radiance Pro 5348 has a fixed I/O configuration.
