The attraction of Calibre is its image processing technology branded HQUltra and its in-house R&D capabilities.
SY Chen, president at Coretronic, writes:
“Our strategy is to strengthen our position in display and image processing technology with a rich set of capabilities afforded by the Calibre team. This will help Coretronic Group with its plans to further advance in the pro-av markets as well as assisting with entry into the rapidly expanding direct-view LED display markets.”
This will allow Calibre to benefit from Coretronic’s sales coverage and growing professional audio/video channel sales, particularly in Asia, North America and Europe.
For almost three decades Calibre has has been developing image scaling and processing technologies for use in broadcast/television, digital cinema, medical, large venue projection, LED videowalls.
Calibre manufactures products under its own brand-names and has hardware and software design teams in the UK and Germany as well as UK-based manufacturing.
