Sensory Science is upping the ante in the video processor game. On April 12, the Scottsdale, AR-based electronics firm introduced the new CL-2500 Video Processor from its California Audio Labs division. The processor is "a videophile-quality home theater component functioning as both an HDTV-ready video switcher as well as video processor," according to the announcement, and is claimed to "raise the standard in home theater performance and operation."

The "super-bright" PureFlat™ HDTV monitor won't leave you hanging when you want to watch some of your favorite (but decidedly non-high-def) television programs. Two built-in NTSC tuners combined with advanced video processing guarantee an excellent picture. Material with a 4:3 aspect ratio is "digitally stretched" to fill the sides of the 16:9 screen. Reruns of I Love Lucy will never look better than when you see them on this 34" flatscreen.
