Discover the madVR Envy MK2

The most advanced, modern-day video processor for high-end cinema

The award-winning madVR Envy uses our patent-pending video processing to deliver the ultimate picture quality in your dedicated home theater. Enjoy the most dramatic yet highly accurate 4K HDR dynamic tone mapping, instant aspect ratio detection, subtitle management for scope screens, and non-linear stretch unlike anything you’ve ever seen. The Envy also offers unrivaled 4K upscaling, specialized sharpening and detail enhancement, 3D and 1D LUT calibration with unprecedented precision, and much more. The Envy is the first and only dedicated video processor to use machine learning algorithms with real-time video streams, taking your video quality to a whole new level. The Envy installs in minutes and is a joy to use.

HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping

madVR Labs pioneered dynamic frame by frame HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping. Our patent-pending DTM 2.0 analyzes every frame in real-time to optimize every single pixel. That’s a half billion pixels per second at 4K60. Our 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. 

Auto AR and Geometry 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. Our unrivaled auto AR control finally rids you of those pesky black bars once and for all. The Envy Extreme also features advanced geometry correction, great for removing a-lens barrel distortion, fitting curved screens, advanced architectural installations, and more.

4K & 8K Upscaling & Sharpening

Envy uses proprietary machine learning algorithms to provide unrivaled 4K, 5K 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.

Highly Accurate Calibrations

Envy enables incredibly accurate calibrations by supporting massive 256-point 3D LUTs, and 4,096 point 1D 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, 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 & Profiles

Tired of cutoff subtitles with your scoped screen? Our subtitle handing dynamically resizes your image to fit subtitles only when needed, maximizing your picture size. And our 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 HDMI 2.1 output, with full 48 Gbps HDCP 2.3 support. This makes Envy the first and only stand-alone video processor to offer these advanced capabilities. Our modern-day hardware platform ensures you’ll enjoy the Envy for many years to come.

Non-Linear Stretch (NLS+)

Want to remove those pesky black bars on your 2.35 screen when watching 16:9 content? Our NLS+ is the first non-linear stretch algorithm to combine horizontal expansion with vertical compression. This innovation (yet another madVR Labs industry first) “shares the load” for the stretch both horizontally and vertically, resulting in a more natural looking image than possible otherwise. 

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. Need support? With your permission, your dealer can remotely connect to your Envy, see its video output in real-time, and operate it just like they were in the room with you.
