Digital Projection Launches Online Toolbox

Digital Projection, a manufacturer of projection technology, has introduced an integrated suite of image and lens calculators for the audiovisual industry. Dubbed the Calculator Toolbox, the online resource allows users to quickly calculate essential data such as the image size and throw distance of a projector given a few basic parameters.

Digital Projection (DPI), a manufacturer of projection technology, has introduced an integrated suite of image and lens calculators for the audiovisual industry. Dubbed the Calculator Toolbox, the online resource allows users to quickly calculate essential data such as the image size and throw distance of a projector given a few basic parameters, according to company officials.

In addition to the suite's core functionality, DPI has bundled other tools and guides to help with projector selection and identify the long-term cost of ownership of any projection system within any application. The Calculator Toolbox provides a dedicated online portal where AV pros can research and specify the key aspects of a projector installation in order to configure the right display solution.

DPI officials said the company began developing the functionality and architecture of the Calculator Toolbox, in late 2008. It started as a modest, browser-based lens calculator and grew from there based on dealer and industry feedback.

"We wanted to create a first for our dealer network," said Mike Levi, president of DPI, in a statement. "I feel that we have now created an immensely helpful industry toolkit. The industry at-large will benefit from the suite of tools, though DPI dealers will specifically appreciate some higher-value functionality, such as the ability to discover appropriate lenses, screen brightness and contrast targets for their specific installation."

The Calculator Toolbox portal will also contain previously released projector tools such as DPI's Screen Brightness and Cost of Ownership calculators. The entire suite integrates with DPI's projector database, according to the company, making it possible for a dealer to print or e-mail a resulting report to an end user or to DPI with a purchase order.
