Overview

The award-winning madVR Envy uses their patent-pending video processing to deliver the ultimate picture quality in your dedicated home theater. Enjoy the most dramatic yet highly accurate 4K HDR frame by frame dynamic tone mapping, unrivaled 4K upscaling, the fastest black bar & aspect ratio detection and zooming, debanding and compression artifact reduction, specialized sharpening and detail enhancement, 3D LUT calibration with unprecedented precision, and more.

HDR DYNAMIC TONE MAPPING

madVR Labs pioneered dynamic frame by frame HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping. Their patent-pending DTM 2.0 engine analyzes every frame in real-time to optimize every single pixel. That’s nearly a half billion pixels per second at 4K60! Their proprietary Highlight Recovery, Contrast Recovery and Shadow Detail Recovery provide an image so stunning you will be addicted at first sight. Finally, you can enjoy HDR movies and shows at home like never before possible, just as the director intended. Now with fully customizable “Looks”!

AUTO ASPECT RATIO CONTROL

Envy detects every single aspect ratio and instantly adjusts the image to exactly fit your screen, regardless of its AR and the AR of the movie even as it changes back and forth. This is sorely needed for screens with wide aspect ratios, and benefits those with 16:9 screens. Envy even watches the movie along with you, to learn the aspect ratios in use and ensure it delivers unrivaled auto AR control to rid you of those pesky black bars once and for all.

4K UPSCALING & SHARPENING

Envy uses proprietary machine learning algorithms to provide unrivaled 4K and 8K* upscaling and anamorphic stretch. It also provides the highest quality chroma upscaling (4:2:0->4:4:4) and can automatically reverse certain damaging chroma upscaling used by source players to then perfectly apply its superior chroma upscaling.

3D LUT CALIBRATION

Envy enables incredibly accurate calibrations by supporting massive 256-point LUTs, without any loss of measurement data and precision, unlike with other processors. This translates to 16.7 million points of accuracy, compared to less than 5,000 points with others. Envy integrates with calibration products including ColourSpace, Calman, displayCal, and more.

IMAGE ENHANCEMENTS

Envy provides the highest quality algorithms to remove compression artifacts and mosquito noise, as well as de-banding to remove 8-bit banding artifacts. Many other favorite tweaks for image enhancements are also available to remove or add grain, sharpen edges, remove ringing, and more.

SUBTITLE HANDLING & PROFILING

Tired of cutoff subtitles with your scoped screen? madVR's subtitle handing dynamically resizes your image to fit subtitles only when needed, maximizing your picture size. And their new profile system provides the most powerful yet easy to use settings management you’ve ever seen in any product before it.

8K AND HDMI 2.1 SUPPORT

The Envy Extreme supports 8K and HDMI 2.1 output, and the Pro will receive a paid upgrade in 2021 to HDMI 2.1 as well. This provides full 48 Gbps HDMI 2.1 HDCP 2.3 support, making it the first and only stand-alone video processor to offer these advanced capabilities. madVR's modern-day hardware platform ensures you’ll enjoy the Envy for many years to come.

CONTINUOUS INNOVATION

Updates to Envy can be installed in less than 60 seconds with just the click of your remote. For example, madVR will introduce the world’s first machine learning based motion interpolation for the best motion handling yet, along with geometry control to support a wide range of installations, eliminate barrel distortion and artifacts from anamorphic lenses or curved screens.

SIMPLE TO INSTALL AND USE

Set up is so simple that it takes just five minutes. No experience is required. Just plug the HDMI output from your AVR into the Envy, and send the Envy’s HDMI ouput to your display.
