DPI Broadens Projector Lines

Among the many projectors introduced this week by Digital Projection International (DPI), were new cost-effective three-chip models and a trio of LED-based systems.

Among the many projectors introduced this week by Digital Projection International (DPI), were new cost-effective three-chip models and a trio of LED-based systems.

The new HIGHlite Cine 1080p-260 and HIGHlite Cine 1080p-260 HC projectors use Texas Instruments' 3-chip DLP technology and priced to meet more mainstream, high-brightness requirements, according to the company. The HIGHlite Cine 1080p-260 HC (high contrast) is optimized to produce 2,000 lumens and a 20,000:1 contrast ratio on screens up to 12 feet wide. The HIGHlite Cine 1080p-260 HB (high brightness) delivers up to 3,500 lumens for small to mid-size venues needing as bright a picture as possible while still retaining the benefits of 3-chip DLP imaging.

Company officials says the HIGHlite Cine 1080p-260 models address a common request among commercial integrators who have asked for DPI imaging performance from a smaller, sleek cabinet. The new Cine series design is also used in DP's new single-chip M-Vision Cine LED and M-Vision Cine 260 models, as well as all Titan models equipped with the company's new CINEskin enclosure.

The HIGHlite Cine has a lens shift range of 120 percent vertical and 30 percent horizontal. Lens options include .7 and 1.0:1 fixed lenses, plus zoom lenses with throw ratios ranging from 1.25:1 up to 5.0:1. Connectivity includes two HDMI inputs, as well as RGB via D-15, component, composite and S-Video inputs.

DPI also rolled out its new dVision 30-1080p LED, dVision 30-WUXGA LED and dVision 35-WQXGA LED projectors for 24/7 applications or any application needing long projection life and optimum color saturation stability. The three dVision series projectors deliver over 100,000 hours of LED illumination life, according to the company.

All three projectors utilize Texas Instruments' DarkChip DLP technology, ensuring good black levels and dynamic range. The RGB-based LED illumination system eliminates the need for a color wheel to produce primary colors. Instead, red, green and blue LED's produce primary color illumination, rendering a color gamut and color saturation similar to that of a three-chip DLP projector. Because there is no spinning color wheel, artifacts are eliminated and fast-moving content appears sharp and free of motion smear, according to DPI.

The time-tested durability and performance of the dVision chassis, combined with the longevity and precise colorimetry of an LED illumination source, means we can now provide a proven solution with the lowest maintenance and long-term cost of ownership for demanding 24-7 and high-use multichannel applications," said Chuck Collins, vice president of commercial AV for DPI, in a statement.
