METROPOLIS at LAS VEGAS Winter CES1998 Jan.7.-11.98

We are the worldwide exclusive distributor of MEGAVISION DVD-player modifications
MEGAVISION was the worlds first Innovator of intelligent codefree modifications

first A100 "codefree" spring 1997 (no pins off solution!)
first A350 Multiregionswitchboards late 1997
first with Macrovision "Off" march 1998

Sensational Article appeared at the German Home Theater Magazine AUDIOVISION2/98 (click for copy of the test) proving, that our electronic engineer was the first in Europe with an intelligent A350modification. They made a 6 page article and explain all details. Two other companies had no modification yet ready, even if they tell so in their advertisings!

We are pleased to introduce DVD players, capable to play DVDs without restriction by „local codes" or video standard. Our preferred model for European customers is the A350 which we found very reliable. We have changed now our modification to a new concept, the dual, triple or quadra code-board. In the future, DVD code1 software will be more "intelligent" to recognize a code 0 or "pins up" modification like to surpass the code-recognizing EEPROM-chips (the so called "legs/pins-up" modification).
So the next and logical step is to give the DVD the right region code it needs and switch different chips with our switchboard. Our board allows up to 4 different codes or Video standards. The most wanted European version will be something like Code 2 PAL+ Code1 NTSC (on 4,43MHz PAL-carrierfrequency). We can also add a third chip with Code1 NTSC 3,58MHz. This is important with the 2 existing different NTSC Versions. You need NTSC3,58 for most Video-Projectors. Most of the European TV sets, "emulate" NTSC with their higher carrierfrequency of 4,43Mhz (called PAL 60). You could also add code 2  NTSC 4,43 for DVD's imported from JAPAN, or any other combination, as you like.
