Home Theater Lovers Beware!
Mosquitos belong outdoors, not in your picture. Mosquito improves your DTV/DSS/DVD pictures by removing "Mosquito" noise.  See our ad.

Home Theater 3D Mosquito Noise Reducer

Mosquito is a three dimensional (3D) digital processor, able to accept standard and "progressive scan" component signals. Mosquito is also available with SD/HD capability. Our 3D Mosquito Noise Reducer, targeted at the Home Theater market, is ideal for inline use with DVD and DSS (picture 3) for noise reducing compression artefacts often seen on larger displays such as Plasmas or projected images of all sizes. The Mosquito cleans and sharpens DCT compressed images such as MPEG2 used in Direct Satellite Signals (DSS), Digital Cable, Digital Terrestrial Television (DTV), and digital recording such as Digital Video Disk (DVD's) or even Personal Video Recorders (PVR).

Mosquito performs four distinct image-processing techniques. First, Mosquito removes Mosquito noise (3D-MNR), using Algolith's proprietary region-based algorithm. Mosquito noise is random noise apparent along edges of compressed images (see pictures 1 & 2). Second, Mosquito provides Block Artefact Reduction (BAR) by blending and diminishing inherent 8 x8 pixel block structures of MPEG2 images. Third, the 3D-MNR provides advanced motion adaptive temporal filtering techniques aimed at eliminating random noise. Finally, the 3D-MNR provides the user with adjustable image enhancement using non-linear filters.

Mosquito is the ideal and essential addition for any serious enthusiast's Home Theater.
