Christie's new Entero LED projection system is designed for control room and videowall applications. The company calls it the first LED-based SXGA+ and WUXGA projection display system, offering 600 ANSI lumens of brightness for illuminating Christie's 50-, 67- and 72-inch display cube platforms. The LED-illuminated, single-chip DLP product family includes Christie LiteLOC and ColorLOC for automatic, independent brightness and color management, plus Christie ArrayLOC, which continually matches color and brightness levels for every cube, across an entire display wall.

The XTP HD-300 is Digital Projection's first environmentally sealed projector. With 4,500 lumens and a 2,000:1 contrast ratio, the 3-chip DLP projector can be configured with an integrated media server, making it well suited for large-screen digital signage, according to the company. The XTP's closed-loop heat exchanger maintains the device's specified thermal range while preventing environmental contaminants, like dust and water, from compromising its performance, says DPI. The XTP doesn't have air filters nor does it rely on air from the projection environment for cooling the chassis. Digital Projection International. 770-420-1350.
