Lexicon CP-1

The Lexicon CP-1, introduced in 1989, was the first consumer Lexicon product and the world's first digital Dolby Pro Logic processor. To mark its launch, Lexicon produced a special Laserdisc that included a brief company overview and an outline of the CP-1's abilities, alongside basic video and audio test material.

The files above represent the first two chapters of that Laserdisc and have been produced with the kind permission of Andrew Clark at Lexicon.

Technical Notes:

The DivX files offer superior video performance (sharper, blacker blacks and a higher contrast ratio). However, the DivX audio is marginally inferior to the MPEG-1 versions due to the inability of its lossy CODEC to cope with out-of-phase material during the opening and closing few moments of each sequence, yet the audio upon all files is 160kb/s and 44.1kHz stereo.

DivX files require the free DivX CODEC bundle (version 5.0.1 and above) from:
